90-95% of your printer costs are hidden at time of purchase.
Most companies devote a great deal of time and energy to getting the best deal on their printer purchases. However, the investment in printers represents only 5-10% of the total cost of ownership. 90-95% is the operational cost spread over the life of the equipment, including usage patterns, supplies and maintenance. Herein lies the greatest potential for savings.
Toner is the greatest component of total cost of printer ownership.
Hard to believe but over the lifetime of your printer, toner is your #1 investment ranking well above maintenance and the initial cost of your hardware. Many vendors overpromise on toner quality and productivity, often undetected by end users as it is cumbersome to track. Precision's program is unique – we start by buying back your toner and after that, we provide toner as needed at no cost.
The "paperless" computer age has increased the amount of paper used exponentially.
E-mails, the Internet, PDAs – information is at our fingertips quickly. But we want hard copy in our hands. As a result, internet research and emails are often read then printed for distribution. This trend of increased paper use is expected to continue, adding cost to unmanaged print operations.
1-3% of revenue is spent on document output.
Very few organizations have a clear picture of the total cost of their printer fleet. With no clear ownership, costs are spread among various departments making it difficult to capture the full impact on the organization's bottom line. The more diverse the ownership, the greater the likelihood of inefficiencies and lost revenue.
Enterprises that manage their document output fleet will save 10-30%.
Managing your printer fleet is replete with potential for savings. Some organizations are creating internal positions to centralize management of their printer fleets. Precision offers an alternative to additional staff expenses by assuming liability for peak printer performance and cost reduction.
60% of help desk calls are output-related.
When breakdowns occur, users want an immediate fix. While many organizations have outside service contracts, response time is unpredictable and service quality inconsistent. As a result, printer problems account for the majority of calls to the help desk. Since Precision bills only for pages printed, our entire model is geared toward working printers. They'll break down less often, and when they do, we'll fix them fast.
