Companies and higher education institutions routinely spend millions of dollars per year on the creation of paper documents. A typical Fortune 3000 business spends 1%-3% of its revenue on printing and copying. Yet most businesses and higher education institutions have no systems in place to track and control print and copy expenses.
Hidden costs of print/copy: Print/copy costs are largely invisible, so most organizations have dramatically underestimated their costs and over-invested in spending
Uncertainty: Companies and higher education institutions don't know who, where, and how much they're printing/copying
Inability to assign print/copy costs to individuals or departments: Without the proper systems in place, print/copy costs are 100% absorbed by the business or higher education institution
Lack of user accountability: Users print and copy massive amounts of jobs without ever being held accountable for the waste
Security problems: Private documents are viewed by all when user authentication at the printer/copier isn't present
Paper waste: Annually, 40%-60% of printing and copying is discarded as waste
Unequal distribution of library PCs: Equitable access to resources is absent without a system in place to control it
