Understanding your costs

While most IT is controlled, printers often slip under the radar.

The damage to a companys bottom line is not so much the typically lower capital outlay of the printer but the on-going costs of purchasing the consumables for it. Especially as often these costs are not controlled or monitored centrally, allowing the expense to be hidden in other areas.
All these factors contribute to making it very hard to grasp the true cost of printing in an organisation.

We often come across organisations that although they may have an accurate idea of how many PCs and Laptops they are managing have no true idea of the amount of printers they are using.

If you think about it - once you turn on a PC or Laptop it costs you the electricity to use it, when you turn on and use a printer however it costs you a lot more than just the electric!

Which is the more expensive to run and will cost your organisation more?
