Between the gift wrap, cards, gifts, packaging, delicious food, and everything else that goes along with the holiday season, people can generate a lot of waste. In fact, the average American generates 25% more waste during the holiday season when compared with any other time of year.
Offices and businesses are no exception to this rule. Between holiday cards, handouts, posters, and more, an office can also generate additional waste during the holiday season. Not only does this test the capacity of the office dumpster but it can also be a huge hit to the bottom line.
Luckily, ASE has some solutions to help curb holiday waste and turn the season of giving into the season of saving. Best of all, these solutions can be used around the year to help reduce waste and costs even long after the turkey leftovers have been thrown out.
Discover Problem Areas Using Technology
The biggest challenge with reducing waste is that many office managers simply do not know where their waste is coming from. This problem becomes even more complex as additional employees, locations, and devices are added into the mix. Trying to find where waste is coming from can feel like picking a needle out of a haystack.
This is where ASE steps in with TLC Pro Managed Print Services. The secure software operates in the background of user devices and tracks the printing usage of all employees. Once the data has been compiled and analyzed, suggestions are made about how to reduce waste, find efficiencies, and lower printing costs. Whether it’s posters for the office holiday party or a summer promotion flyer, managed print services can save businesses money no matter what season it is.
Immediately Lower Costs with Remanufactured Toner Cartridges
Whenever a business investigates how to reduce printing costs, they often look to their regular expenses on toner cartridges. An active, busy office can spend a significant portion of their printing supplies budget on replacement toner cartridges. To help clash the cost of cartridges, ASE offers remanufactured toner cartridges at a fraction of the cost of OEM printing supplies.
Best of all, there is no sacrifice when it comes to quality. Industry-leading facilities are used to create these remanufactured toner cartridges at an identical quality to the ones offered by manufacturers. Most major printer brands are supported and, ultimately, remanufactured toner cartridges reduce the cost per page for every print job completed.
Add those savings up through the holiday season and there might be some extra money that can be used for kicking the office holiday party up a notch.
Time Is Money – Save Time with eProcurement
It’s hard to put a dollar value on improved efficiency. ASE works with clients to offer an eProcurement system that simplifies the process of ordering print supplies. This smart software tracks a business’ inventory and needs to ensure that there is a reduced risk of human error or over-spending. The money saved from a mistake could be massive for a business that has to fit print supplies in with their overall budget.
Of course, the efficiency aspect of the eProcurement system is much harder to measure in dollars and cents. For a small business owner that has to wear many hats throughout the day, simple ordering allows them to focus on other aspects of their business where they can make the greatest difference for customers. Office managers can quickly get their print supplies order completed and move onto pressing issues. With greater efficiency, businesses can improve the customer experience and, hopefully, grow their operation.
It’s the Gift That Keeps on Giving
Saving money on print supplies and finding efficiencies using managed print services aren’t just trendy when the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Saving money is a year-round gift that keeps on giving! For small and medium-sized businesses, waste during any time of the year can take a big bite out of tight budgets.
ASE works with clients of all sizes across all industries to make sure that their technology needs are met in a way that doesn’t require them to cut the holiday party budget, cancel the office eggnog order, or downgrade to a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
