ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY PRINT: Excess of paper consumption due to poor output management represents a visible negative impact to the environment.
- 8MM tons of office paper represents 178MM trees, which was what the US alone consumed in 2008.
- One silge sheet of copy paper can use over 13ox. of water - more than a typical soda can.
- Production of 1 ton of copy paper produces 5,690lbs of greenhouse gases - The equivalente of 6 months of car exhaust.
COSTLY PRINTING: Unmanaged output fleets and low visibility to usage results in higher—and often unnecessary— spending on print.
DEVICE DOWNTIME: Many hospitals lack resources dedicated to fleet management and maintenance. Without preventive maintenance, devices can break down resulting in downtime that hampers productivity.
OVERBURDENED IT: With so many other responsibilities, IT management and support teams typically do not prioritize maintenance of the output environment. That can lead to poor visibility into the fleet, sub-par end-user support and a general lack of control over quality and costs.
