Managing your printing costs
Do you recognise the following or similar situations? The printers at one end of the corridor are hardly used, while there are queues at the printers at the other end. Some of the equipment is outdated, constantly in need of repair and comes from different manufacturers; meanwhile the piles of paper continue to mount. If this sounds all too familiar to you then you're not alone because output environments are now one of the 'secret' cost drivers for many companies. Experts estimate that printing costs now consume between one and three % of companies' revenue - and these figures are rising.
Virtually all companies could make considerable cost savings on their printer environments. CHG-MERIDIAN's experts would be delighted to show you how. The potential for rationalisation in this area is almost as huge as the proliferation of equipment of various manufacturers, types and models that many companies have accumulated over the years. Much of this equipment is often outdated and/or in need of repair and therefore incurs considerable support and administration costs. What's more, this obsolete equipment no longer meets the latest data-security and usability requirements such as secure printing using a PIN or card and the digital transmission of documents (scan-to-email, scan-to-file).
At the same time, the piles of paper continue to mount: emails, manuals, and presentations – everything is printed, and increasingly several copies and in colour. The vision of the paperless office has long been consigned to the past. And on top of all that, the procedures for ordering new items such as toners, are often insufficiently standardised.
CHG-MERIDIAN's output solutions: a full-service package for your printer infrastructure
CHG-MERIDIAN's output solutions enable you to get a firm grip on your printing costs. This full-service package is scalable and modular, which means that you can either select the entire package or simply opt for individual modules. It couldn't be easier.
Analysis and optimisation
First, our specialists work with you to analyse the existing output environment and compile the necessary inventory. We then show you where you could make cost savings based on independent projections.
Advice and procurement
We then advise you on which models to select and how to find suitable suppliers and service partners and, if you wish, can take care of the entire procurement process. And because we are not tied to any specific manufacturers or suppliers we can always provide you with independent and impartial advice.
Finally, our experienced service managers install the new equipment and take care of the de-installation, remarketing and proper disposal of the old machines.
Financing and invoicing models
We offer you a choice of invoicing models based on either the toner price or the price per page, making a clear distinction between fixed and variable costs (rent-plus-toner per click). This ensures that you are permanently compliant with international accounting standards such as US GAAP and IAS/IFRS.
