Copying/Printing Cost Savings Case Study

Are you overlooking a major source of cost savings and increased profits in your health care practice?

September 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Most health care practices don’t know what it actually costs them to copy, print, and fax documents, and are overlooking a major source of cost savings and increased profits. They may know what they paid for the hardware, and they may know what they pay for service and supplies, but most don’t know which of their machines is the least expensive to operate.

For example, inkjet printers are extremely expensive to operate, laser printers are less expensive than inkjet printers, and copiers are the least expensive machines to print from. The catch is that all 3 types of machines do basically the same job.

We’ve helped many companies like the University of Maryland Healthcare System, MedStar Health as well as thousands of small practices like yours find a virtual goldmine in their printing, copying, and faxing budgets with our FREE Document Cost Analysis.

Here’s a real life example. I was recently able to save a small practice in Baltimore $457.00 per month on their printing and copying costs. And this is not an unusual story. Many practices are simply unaware of the cost savings that are available to them.

I would like to offer you the same free service to audit your expenditures for copying, printing, and faxing, and give you a report of your true costs.  The report is yours to keep, with no obligation so you can use this information to plan your future strategy whether that is in the near future or further down the road.

If you’re not quite ready to meet and would like to perform a document cost analysis yourself just call or email me for a free copy of our Document Cost Analysis Worksheet. This worksheet will guide you through the process of evaluating your document costs and allow you to see where you can find cost savings and increased profits for your practice.

With an uncertain economy, businesses need to evaluate and streamline operations wherever they can. If you can save a buck without hindering productivity, that’s the first place you will target. A great place to look for savings is in printing.

Many businesses do not know how much they spend on printing. Odds are they are spending more than they think. If you ask a CFO about her payroll costs, she could tell you off the top of her head. But printing is one of those costs that is buried somewhere under IT, operations or office supplies.

As with any cost, you can’t control what you don’t measure. The first step in managing your printing is doing an assessment to analyze how and what you print. This is the first step to Managed Print Services (MPS). You want to measure existing output volumes, types of printing, paper sizes, and peak printing times. You need to understand the business processes that create printouts and how you use them.

Once you measure the existing environment, you can discuss future needs. You can develop recommendations for streamlining existing business processes that will ultimately reduce time and cost. Some recommendations may be simple, like print double-sided by default. That can save up to 50% of your paper use. You might need to consolidate printers, replace older models with newer ones or change the mix of laser printers and MFPs. By putting everything under a predictable monthly payment, you can treat printing like electricity. You pay for what you use.

MPS can help you save money, save energy and improve productivity since the latest printers will be quicker and may be more appropriate to your businesses requirements. Given the improved functionality of newer printers, you may decide to bring certain tasks in-house, saving on outsourcing fees.

The goal is to make your printing predictable and efficient. Start by assessing your current print environment, decide how to streamline things, make the necessary changes and watch your costs drop and your productivity rise.
