We are often asked to find ways to reduce our customers print costs. To work out their costs, we conduct a print audit where we ask a lot of questions and spend a lot of time in Microsoft Excel. At the end of it, we have a report about where our customers are spending their budget and where they can save money.
Our print audits are revealing that for customers in the Pacific Islands their biggest print cost is actually print outsourced to a commercial print company.
The types of documents often outsourced includes:
- Business reports for meetings
- Retail flyers to promote sales
- Glossy brochures to engage customers
Businesses in the Pacific Islands are outsourcing these documents because they need themprinted in high quality. But it is now possible for businesses to produce high quality colour printsin their own office. While it makes sense to use a commercial printer at times, businesses cansave a lot of time and money by producing these common documents in their office on demand,as and when required.
By bringing colour printing in-house, our customers have found that they can:
- Reduce expenses: in-house printing is a fraction of outsourced printing
- Speed up delivery: reduce wait times by printing on-demand.
Our customers have also found the investment in Ricoh colour printers was much less thanexpected. Because print technology has advanced so quickly, Ricoh colour printers are muchmore affordable than they were in the past.
