This Earth Day Reduce Costly & Wasteful Printing (+Fun Video!)22 Apr, 2015
Greg Gies, Director of Product Marketing, Nuance Communications, Inc., acknowledges the importance of reducing wasteful printing (which saves trees ...today is universal Earth Day!) while providing a link to a fun video:
With the 45th anniversary of Earth Day happening today, we wanted to turn focus on one workplace scenario that can lead to waste: Excessive printing.
Today, multi-function printers (MFPs) deliver the productivity and convenience employees and employers require to accomplish “work as usual” each day. As a result, the MFP has become a ubiquitous feature of every modern office today, to the point where they are almost as common as office furniture.
Yet because they are so common, MFPs often go unnoticed and unconsidered by IT and business leaders as a potential source for reducing waste and improving business performance.
This new video from Nuance highlights a scenario you’ve probably witnessed in your office: out-of-control, wasteful printing. While the video presents this in a lighthearted, humorous way – what does a fairy princess have to do with printing? – the underlying issue is serious.
After all, wasteful, out-of-control printing can cost your business more than you may think, not only in terms of paper, toner, and other materials, but also in lost productivity that occurs when employees can’t use an MFP when they need it most because it’s out of commission.
This Earth Day, we encourage you to take a moment to watch our video, but to also consider your organization’s printing habits and question if you’re doing all you can to curb excessive printing.
Happy Earth Day!
