How to trim the fat and improve efficiency

Effective print management is all about maximising effectiveness while minimising wastage and expense. There are two areas where print management can have the desired impact: inside print and outside print. Inside print refers to your internal administration, outside print to your marketing materials. We’re going to look at the former today, and suggest how you can trim the fat and improve efficiency in your inside print processes.

Audit inside print

The first step is to audit your inside print and suss out the lay of the land. Before you can start streamlining processes, saving money and preserving resources, you need to find out where you use print throughout your business. Where and when is the office printer at its busiest, and which of these uses are nonessential?

Consolidate print tasks

Often, inside print inefficiencies are a result of too many cooks spoiling the broth. Everyone and no-one is in charge of inside print, meaning that files go to the printer twice when they didn’t need printing at all and ink and paper refills are ordered before they’re really required. Clever print management is about consolidating your print tasks and placing them under the care of a single employee. When one individual becomes intimately acquainted with your inside print and is made accountable for print management, issues of inefficiency can be quickly and effectively resolved

Print management is all about improving your company’s relationship with print – whether that means revolutionising your print marketing campaigns or saving money and resources across your inside print processes.
