Printer Usage and Cost Management Strategies for the Australian Mid-Market, An Unrealised Opportunity

Sydney, Australia – February 2010 – Research commissioned by Kyocera Mita, one of the world's leading document imaging companies, has revealed that the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a printer fleet for a typical Australian mid-market business is between $151,000 and $286,969 over a three-year period.

The study, conducted by Longhaus, also identified that the typical print fleet for a mid-sized Australian business consists of 32% A4 desktop single function devices, 30% A4 free standing multifunction devices and 22% A4 desktop multifunction devices. The most typical printer brands include HP, Canon, Kyocera Mita, Fuji Xerox and Lexmark.

“The GFC has shed light on the true cost of operation that the print-on-demand culture is costing Australian organisations,” said David Finn, Managing Director, Kyocera Mita Australia and New Zealand.

“The reality is that the Australian mid-market spends between 8-9% of its annual ICT budget on the acquisition of print devices, and a further 6% on ongoing operational costs for a typical print fleet. Totaling around 15% of the total ICT budget, this places print devices on par with telecommunications expenses as a single, identifiable expense.”

“Disturbingly, most businesses are missing out on opportunities to cut print costs by as much as 35%, simply because they are unaware of their real printing costs and therefore aren’t optimising their printer fleets. It’s a case of not being able to manage what you can’t measure.”

KYOCERA Document Solutions partners with Planet Ark

 Sydney, Australia – Tuesday 29 May, 2012 – KYOCERA Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies today announced their partnership with Planet Ark for the recycling collection of consumable waste in the work place.

Having run their own recycling collection program, KyoCollect, for many years Kyocera have now chosen to partner with Planet Ark believing this will be more convenient for their customers where multiple branded devices are in use.

As David Finn, Managing Director, Kyocera Document Solutions Australia and New Zealand explained, “We’ve run our own recycling campaign for many years and have been proud to offer a solution that we managed ourselves. This worked very well in smaller organisations where Kyocera work with them exclusively for their printer and copier needs. Yet as we have grown, and work increasingly with larger organisations and government departments, this isn’t always the easiest solution for these customers. They
may have multiple vendors and want one collection point for their consumable waste.”
