3 Ways to Go Green in the Office

Copiers are a must-have for most companies, but many businesses have toned down their impact on the environment through green practices. Here's how eco-friendly devices, managed print partnerships, paperless workflows, and sustainable office policies can help your company tread a little more softly on our planet.

Green Machines

Did you know that holding onto old copiers and printers is worse for the environment than upgrading? Here's why:

  • Energy usage— Old equipment requires much more power to operate, and new copiers come ready-made to use less energy. Features like automatic standby and programmable wake-up and sleep modes substantially reduce power consumption.
  • Paper consumption— The latest copiers include features like automatic duplexing, pull-printing, and print preview that make it easier for employees to reduce paper consumption.
  • Multifunction systems— These four-in-one multifunction copiers combine the functions of four stand-alone technologies into one device to save on energy and consumables.

Managed Print Services

Are you using more paper and energy than you should? A Managed Print Services assessment can provide the numbers along with solutions to cut back on usage. Did we mention you'll also save up to 30% on your current print spend and improve productivity throughout your organization?

Document Management

Paper may still play a valuable role in your organization, but if you're relying on paper documents for your core business processes, it's time for a change. Electronic document management solutions capture, convert, distribute, and store information digitally via scanning features on multifunction copiers. The green benefits are substantial:

  • Digital documents don't rely on traditional printing or copying
  • Document management systems require virtually no physical storage space
  • By eliminating the need for most hardcopy documents, businesses naturally use less paper, toner, and energy
