Charging back these costs can help reduce operational costs in two ways.</p> <p>1. Internal users who are billed for all or some of their color printing are likely to be more aware of, and more mindful about, how much they print—and, as a result, more judicious in their use of printing resources. This can result in less usage.</p> <p>2. By billing external users, organizations can eliminate, or at least significantly reduce, the color printing and copying costs that they normally absorb on behalf of their clients or patrons.</p> <p>Opportunities to charge back color printing In addition to charging back color printing costs to internal and external users, organizations can charge back by group or individual. Opportunities <br />for charging back might include:</p> <ul> <li>departments within a larger organization </li> <li>offices in remote locations </li> <li>clients of professional firms </li> <li>individual users of institutional resources </li> </ul> <!--break--> <div class="wlWriterEditableSmartContent" id="scid:8eb9d37f-1541-4f29-b6f4-1eea890d4876:8d325ffe-a3a4-48a9-a166-c95198016919" style="padding-right: 0px; display: inline; padding-left: 0px; float: none; padding-bottom: 0px; margin: 0px; padding-top: 0px"><p><div>Download the full whitepaper: <a href="http://www.officeproductnews.net/files/charging_back.pdf" target="_blank">Charging back: making color pay</a></div></p></div>
