Businesses may be spending too much for printing and supplies.
Hoboken, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 15, 2014
eMazzanti Technologies, IT support and computer consultant and Xerox Platinum Partner in the New York City Metro area, recently learned that it is ranked third in sales for Xerox Partners in New Jersey for the 2013 calendar year. Carl Mazzanti, CEO, attributes increased sales of Xerox products and services to its eCare Managed Print Services offering.
“eCare Managed Print Services is all about reducing the total cost of ownership of imaging equipment, from printers to MFP (multi-function printers) to copiers,” stated Mazzanti. “Businesses may be spending too much for printing and supplies. eCare Managed Print Services from eMazzanti and Xerox can significantly reduce costs.”
More than Purchase Price
TCO or total cost of ownership is what a business should be thinking about when it comes to printing. TCO is calculated by combining the purchase price, cost per page, reliability and support. The initial cost of acquisition focuses almost completely on hardware purchase but excludes other costs.
Unfortunately, purchasing the printer is truly the “tip of the iceberg” when it comes to calculating the total cost of ownership. If a 25 page per minute black and white laser printer prints 5,000 pages per month, the total cost to operate the printer over 3 years will be over $4,750. That $649 printer is actually going to cost $5,400 to own for 3 years.
Hidden costs must also be considered to provide an accurate cost of printed materials to the company including:
Network management: This cost may be low for one or two printers, but a growing printer population will demand increased network management time.
Infrastructure: Printers on the network require obvious infrastructure, such as a network node, desk space, floor space, electricity and air conditioning.
User time: Users who spend valuable time using the wrong printer for their requirements cost time and money. Overloading a small printer will result in users constantly adding supplies such as paper and ink cartridges.
Be sure to consider all of the factors when figuring the TCO. Visit http://www.ecareprint.com to see how a managed print service can lower total cost of ownership of imaging equipment.
