Do you know how much your school spends on printing? Many decision-makers in education have little or no idea how much it costs to buy, run, and maintain their campus’ printer fleet. They also may not be aware of how much time students and faculty are spending on print jobs.
Schools have not only an abundance, but a wide variety of print jobs every single week. The constantly changing printing needs mean some schools end up with a mixture of different printer models and lose track of usage and costs. It can be confusing if a school has multiple locations with different printing needs. It’s even more complicated to work with multiple print vendors and contracts.
A disorganized printer fleet can lead to disorganized toner and ink management, outdated technology, difficulty scheduling repairs, and overspending. All students, teachers, and staff deserve more than the out-of-date technology they may be using. Printer downtime can set teachers back on their lesson plan and cut into crucial learning time for students. Schools need a printing system they can rely on to get the job done.
