Signing copier contracts can be a daunting task for first time buyers. Here are a few tips on what to look out for:
Businesses that have a printer or copier on contract on their premises will have to pay a CPC/CPP. Businesses pay these print costs without entirely understanding what they stand for and what the costs include, making it the “Scary Unknown” that has to be paid or else printing will come to a standstill. In this blog I am going to give you the definition of CPC/CPP, explain how it is calculated and what should be included, so that you can make an educated decision when signing printer contracts and paying those print bills.
Having read the article in the Business Report International – “Overall decline in SA print market” - there is a decrease in the A3 print portfolio, South Africa being the largest at 16% year-on-year.
It is a universal truth that printing can become a very costly expense if it is not closely managed.

A few of us at Green Office were lucky enough to attend the Imaging & Technology Education Exposition (ITEX) held at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas between 18th and 20th April 2017.

When conducting a Print Assessment, companies often do not start with a physical check of what they have. Instead they rely on their suppliers to provide them with information on devices for analysis. The problem with this approach is that suppliers often don’t track their own information as accurately as one might think, which results in organizations making decisions based on flawed data sets. Statistics show that most companies have at least double the devices they thought they had and that the vast majority of supplier provided data has significant discrepancies.
