Here is a snapshot of some other benefits that come with using Aurora’s managed print service.
Managing your print infrastructure efficiently will undoubtedly reduce your printing costs by at least 20%, not forgetting your energy bills. For example, you can automate document workflow within your company, meaning you can set rules, such as duplex or even mono printing for certain documents to encourage your employees to print in smarter ways, saving on paper, toner and electricity. Without such a system in place, often employees and staff tend to print an unnecessary amount of documents in the wrong format, which effectively just go straight in the bin. All this wastage adds up, and in turn, affects your bottom line and sustainability efforts.
Wondering how much, how often and what your employees are printing? Print tracking software, like PaperCut, can further home in on the types of jobs and the volume of prints each printer is actually handling. This real data determines where exactly your print fleet is the most wasteful and how much it is costing you, which allows you to make more economical and strategic improvements.
When it comes to all that carelessly binned paper, not only can it haemorrhage cash from your company, but it can also pose a security and privacy breach. A document release system ( secure print release) could do the trick, and only print when you release the document from the printer, utilising software such as Papercut. This practice is often referred to as Follow Me Printing or Secure Printing, which requires a user to scan an ID card, enter a PIN or use a smart device in order to release the print. This ensures documents containing sensitive information aren’t just left hanging around on the outbound tray, as well as significantly reducing the printing of unnecessary or unwanted documents (yet another cost saving)
Automating document workflows, utilising Follow Me printing software (like Uniflow), and analysing your print consumption are all steps in the right direction at reducing your company’s carbon footprint, along with working towards your sustainability objectives. You will ultimately streamline your print fleet and reduce toner and paper wastage, which has the additional benefit of reducing your energy consumption and in turn protecting your company’s bottom line.
