All businesses use office printers, and few really know which printer to purchase that will cater to their requirements. Not all printers print documents of the same quality, not all printers can perform the same jobs and have the same functions. Choosing the right printer is pretty much as complex a purchase as getting a computer, laptop or smart phone. It also doesn’t help when retailers presume you know what DPI (dots per inch) and NFC (near field communication) mean.

Print assessments have become somewhat of a standard in the Office Automation industry. It’s not uncommon for copier salesman to compare current spend to a new solution and advise on the savings available, should you sign on the dotted line.

- Understand what you have.
A detailed print assessment will be conducted across all operational sites to compile an asset list of all devices within your fleet. This includes any document output devices, such as printers, copiers, scanners, faxing machines, dot-matrix, etc.)
Talking and thinking about print is not exciting to most, and bringing up a conversation about your home or office printer at a dinner party would surely be social suicide. But let’s try to understand this and why we humans don’t get excited by print.
Efficiency, the buzzword in any company is all about working smart, not hard. Making the most of your time and effort, whilst staying productive.
Most people are looking for ways to become more efficient in their everyday tasks. Earlier, all you needed was a basic computer, telephone and perhaps a fax machine to get through the items on your to-do list. Whereas now, this won’t give you the edge to make you more efficient and thus, you won’t be one step ahead of your competition.
It’s no secret that organisations are seeking to cut down on costs and what better and more effective way to do so than starting with the print environment.
