As your Gold Coast business grows, so will your printer needs, which people often forget about. With increased printing will come unexpected challenges which can result in a significant increase in a business’s operating budget. Here are three of the problems your Gold Coast business might face with growth regarding printing that your business needs to consider:

Increased print volume and lack of visibility

Unsurprisingly, as your Gold Coast business grows, so too will the amount of printing each printer does. With an increase in print volume comes higher consumption of paper and toner, which can be costly. Even more expensive can be the additional power usage and wear and tear on your devices from increased use.

With this increased printing will come a lack of visibility into which people are printing and how much. It will be incredibly hard to track who is consuming resources excessively.

Pressure on the IT Department

When you have problems with your printers, the IT Department will be in charge of fixing issues. This might not seem like a big issue, but it will mean that your IT Department has far less time to work on innovation to drive business growth.

Expansion of your printer fleet

With increased growth in your Gold Coast business will come pressure to purchase more printers. This pressure might lead to unnecessary spending as more people request printers. Additionally, when purchasing a few printers at once, it might seem like a good idea to go to a local store and buy them. But this can result in your business getting a bad deal and paying too much, and you will find that the help of a managed print service will result in far lower upfront costs.

onPlatinum’s print solutions ensure that your Gold Coast office printers won’t be a money-drainer. We will take the time to understand your current and future print, copy and document management needs before recommending a solution. While we are based on the Gold Coast, we are not bound by location and can install, service and support machines nationally!
