Kyocera Mita Launches TCO Tracker
Fairfield, New Jersey—Kyocera Mita has launched its Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Tracker, a web-based interactive tool that demonstrates how much money Kyocera Mita printers can save an organization. The TCO Tracker, which is accessible at www.kyoceramita.com/go5016, utilizes market data provided from ARS, Inc., a leading market intelligence firm in the printer and imaging products industry. TCO Tracker allows end users to calculate how much money they will save with Kyocera Mita versus competing monochrome and color printers using customizable criteria determined by the user.
“Kyocera Mita is the only manufacturer to provide complete total costs associated with owning a printer,” said Michael Pietrunti, vice president, marketing at Kyocera Mita. “While other manufacturers claim they may have TCO calculators, we're showing the real numbers, as tracked by a third party analyst. In fact, we allow each user to input criteria specific to their enterprise, such as percent of coverage, number of printers and monthly volume. In addition, the database is updated monthly by ARS, Inc. This allows end users to track their costs and get a real, tangible number representing the amount an enterprise could be saving with Kyocera Mita.”
