Like other small and mid-sized organizations, you might be surprised at how many ways an optimized print environment can improve your business. With the right office printing strategy in place, you can reduce costs, boost productivity, strengthen security, increase efficiency, promote sustainability, and gain visibility.
At West X, we believe that an optimized print environment is about more than just printers and multi function devices. It’s everything related to printers, their output, supplies and support, the way you use documents, and the people and processes that intersect with each of these.We believe there are seven core components of an optimized print environment.
Assess: Expert consultants will review your current environment and identify opportunities to improve performance, streamline operations, and reduce costs.
Design: Working with your IT team and other key stakeholders, our team will develop short and long term plans to improve the capabilities of your technology infrastructure.
Implement: Our team will deploy software, optimized hardware, and establish best practices and training as needed, ensuring your business maximizes productivity and cost savings.
Manage: Our team will ensure maximum uptime of hardware and software solutions and will continue to work with you to make continuous improvements to your business over time.
It all starts with an assessment of your current printing environment. An assessment will help establish a baseline and identify areas to cut costs, identify improvements in workflows, and incorporate technology into your print environment.
What are you printing? How much are you printing? Who’s printing and to which devices? Like so many other companies, you’ll be surprised at just how much is being printed.
Once West X completes an assessment of your print environment, patterns will emerge and, usually, some immediate changes can be made to help increase efficiency.
