A booming economy and healthy corporate bottom lines provided little incentive for IT administrators or facilities managers to invest in efficient and effective devices to meet user needs. Consequently, the population of printers and copiers grew — reducing utilization rates and increasing service and support costs. According to InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, imaging and printing vendors report the average utilization rate for most office equipment is somewhere between 2% and 6%1 — not a very good return on the technology investment. <br /></p> <p>Over the last few years a more competitive business climate has forced organizations to look for areas where costs can be cut without jeopardizing efficiency. The hardcopy environment is a logical candidate for change. IDC reports enterprises spend 1% to 5% of their annual revenues on document production, distribution, storage, retrieval and repurposing.2 To put that in context, documents could cost a business with annual revenues of $10 million as much as half a million each year. It would be money well spent if that investment actually yielded business value, but unfortunately the research also suggests organizations could be spending their dollars much more carefully and achieve cost savings of 13% to 40% and increase productivity through effective fleet management.</p> <!--break--> <div class="wlWriterEditableSmartContent" id="scid:8eb9d37f-1541-4f29-b6f4-1eea890d4876:778e2278-a2e1-4ac9-8980-f90fe220d47a" style="padding-right: 0px; display: inline; padding-left: 0px; float: none; padding-bottom: 0px; margin: 0px; padding-top: 0px"><p><div>Download Full Whitepaper: <a href="" target="_self">New Multifunction Technoloty Can Help Your Organization Control Unmanaged Costs and Improve Productivity</a></div></p></div>
