Your print environment controls almost everything you do in your company. If you have the wrong machines for your needs and aren't managing usage or consumables consumption, you might be wasting time and money--but with the right combination of machines and processes, you can see a huge difference in budget, efficiency, and even your workflow. All you need to do is take control of your print environment.

The Healthy Print Environment

Your print environment is a lively and complex world full of moving parts--machines, networks, connections, software, and, of course, employees who don't want to waste time battling unruly technology. There are a lot of solutions you can utilize, from print management to network support,, but some of the best steps are ones that you can take yourself. No matter how healthy your print environment is right now, there's always room for improvement. You can find ways to cut down on waste, save time and money, and even streamline your workflow--and it's easier than you might think.

Step 1: Review your printer settings.

One of the easiest things you can do to take control of your print environment is to check default printer settings. They should be set for maximum efficiency, and while they can be changed for unique prints, they need to be changed back as soon as possible.

Step 2: Know your print habits.

Review how often you print, what you print, and which departments print the most. This is the kind of crucial data that you can use to inform important decisions, and that will help you stay in control of your print environment.

Step 3: Work together.

Your print environment doesn't exist in a vacuum. Make sure that everyone is working together to review print use, cut down on unnecessary prints, minimize wasted time, and go green wherever possible.
