Before launching the project, two or three standard-ink printers (only A4 paper format) were available in each office, summing up a total of approximately 12 printers per floor. The costs were high given that the cartridges should have been refilled every two weeks and the IT System Administrator was concerned with this recurring task. And we must mention that printing costs can run in the range of 3% – 6% of revenue.
Therefore, two Canon printing devices with a large monthly print volume were delivered to Mobiasbanca Head Office on each floor. These multifunctional printers possess a 6350 sheet capacity (A3 and A4 paper format), ink-saving cartridges, color and B&W output at 35 ppm, print/ copy/ scan/ send and store functionality. Moreover, advanced security capabilities reduce the risk of taking over other papers, by logging in each time before the user picks up his documents with sensitive information.
All devices were combined into a single group, in order to be managed by an administrator from a single console. That helped ease IT burden and maximize productivity. As a result, the customer registered a drop of 17% in printing costs and received high-quality printing. Also, he reduced paper costs, because the user has time to think if he needs the documents before picking them up. For instance, they could have been printed by mistake.
The total cost of the print includes hidden costs associated with document management and production, optimized output management, IT support, infrastructure, administration, and purchasing. Canon multifunctional printers’ portfolio is designed to address these issues and deliver cost savings to help maximize Return on Investment.
