Winter 2015
Most organizations underestimate their printing needs and expenses by as much as 50%.

Key Challenges

  • Without a print management solution, most companies find their printing costs are running out of control
  • In a typical enterprise, printing and document production expenses are the third highest after payroll and rent
  • Professional services firms typically calculate how much to charge for out-of-pocket expenses by manually tracking print volumes. Case studies show that up to 80% of billable prints/plots are missed using this method
