When was the last time you thought about your office printing machines? When was the last time you analyzed who is printing what, how often and how many? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Research suggests that many businesses may be underusing their print devices. As the workplace evolves and the way people work has changed, it’s time to analyze and reimagine your printing environment.
What to Know
We’re seeing a shift from “centralized” printing to “decentralized” printing
What this means is people are shifting away from a central printing location where everyone would print to a large machine. On average a 30 to 1 employee to device ratio. The new “decentralized” concept is around a 4 to 1 employee to device ratio where smaller pods of people are sharing a printing device with some organizations deploying individual printers.
