Manage the Business, Not the Printer – Why Augmenting Your Centralized Color Multifunction Device (MFD) with Distributed Color Inkjet Printers Makes Good Business Sense
Despite the digitization of business today, most organizations continue to rely on paper hard copies to get the job done. A great deal of printed information drives the fundamental workflow and success of nearly any business, especially in high impact, high-touch areas like Marketing and Sales; Planning, Engineering and Design; and Human Resources. As a result, companies continue to look for ways to manage the ongoing cost, workflow and efficiency of using printed documents.
Managed Print Services [MPS], Enterprise Output Management [EOM] and Document Strategy Design have all emerged to address the need to optimize the performance and expense of workgroup printers and copiers. These strategies focus primarily on cost control, especially when it comes to color printing. One common way that companies have controlled cost has been through the centralization of color printing. Rather than continue to support distributed laser workgroup printers and copiers, organizations instead leverage the economies of scale found in centralized multifunction machines and copy centers.
Organizations are now realizing that centralizing color office printing can mask hidden costs and inefficiencies. With a fresh look at centralized, color, and workgroup printing, it becomes clear that adopting a new hybrid printing solution makes good business sense. As a result, many are opting for a new, more balanced approach that leverages advances in inkjet printing technology and provides a cost-effective, beneficial alternative to centralized color workgroup laser printers.
