Around the late ‘90s, personal computers and office printers started to become less of a luxury and more of a standard. They were bought up in huge numbers until their sales volume finally peaked in 2010.
At that point, companies and individuals began to see the power of document management. Consumer sales of multifunction inkjet printers dropped 12 percent from 2010 to 2011, and have declined ever since. Businesses across the world realized that document management could not only save them on printing costs and equipment, but it could also enable whole new levels of productivity. Document capture systems could rapidly send and share documents across departments. Collaborative programs could allow hundreds of individuals to view and edit a document at once. Storage of digital files allowed for rapid retrieval in the future without worry of fading or physical damage.
All of these benefits come coupled with tangible business cost savings returns. Therefore, businesses that do not consider their options for document output management now risk wasting time, money and productivity until they do.
How to Save on Printing in a Business with Document Management
Document output management software can fulfill the bulk of most business document needs, including printing, but they are not a solution by themselves. After all, each software choice offers different features, scales and price points, leaving only a few solutions that are truly viable for a unique organization. Sifting through all the options requires extensive research, and even then deceptive vendors may mislead businesses into thinking that their solution can deliver the best results.
Hiring a vendor agnostic cost recovery consulting firm like Freedom Profit Recovery enables your business to find the perfect solution or solutions for your needs. We always examine every option available instead of jumping straight to the most popular software solutions. In fact, your business may not need additional software at all.
After examining your business activities from the ground up, we will consider the best match for hardware, software and services that will allow you to lower your cost-per-printed page and general document output overhead. We remain independent of all vendors, cutting through the fluff to find objective facts that allow us to decide upon the perfect solution for you.
