15 Jan Is it time to assess your print and IT systems?
What is a print audit?
Did you know that many organisations spend up to 3% of their revenue on print associated costs per year? This is a cost that doesn’t need to be incurred with the right processes in place.
How a print audit saves businesses money
As a business, you measure the cost and efficiency of every aspect of your operations. But do you know how to monitor printing costs in order to make savings? No? Then read on. A print audit answers all these questions and more; it saves you money and makes your organisation more efficient. It also reduces your carbon footprint, which helps with environmental compliance.
Saving you time and money
A print audit will identify how much you actually spend on this essential part of your business, as well as pinpoint where you can improve your processes and systems to save money. An evaluation of all your printing activities will show you which pieces of hardware in your organisation are the most cost effective…and which are the most expensive.
Time for a printing strategy
At the end of the process you will have the basis for a ‘printing strategy’. You have a marketing strategy, a business plan and blueprints for other parts of your business, so why not printing? It makes sense in the long run – and research shows you could make savings of up to 30 per cent on all your printing costs.
A print audit should not be a one-off service. As an experienced provider, Digital Office will be able to put a system in place which will deliver ongoing monitoring, management and support – and the cost of this service will ultimately pay for itself.
