Ordering your ink and toner from a company may seem like overkill for a small to medium business. When you have an office admin, intern, or eager employee willing to pop out to the office supply store and get what’s needed, why bother ordering it in advance or through a third party.
The not so quick trip to an office supply store is costing your business a lot more than the cost of ink. Lost productivity and additional unnecessary purchases mean you are paying for more than the cost of the ink or toner you need.
The time it takes your employee to get organized, log out of their computer, make their way to a store, and shop can really add up. Throw in a “Starbucks run” and you have yourself a fairly lengthy out of office field trip for an employee. That’s if only one employee is making the treck.
By automating your ink and toner needs employees are not wasting time running errands that could be spent on larger more pressing projects.
How often do just the items on your grocery list make it home with you? How often does an extra bag of chips, or a chocolate bar make it into the cart? The same goes for office supply runs. A small trip to purchase a single office product can spiral into impulse purchases of sticky notes, pens, highlighters etc.
By having your ink and toner needs met digitally, and delivered right to your workplace, you reduce the risk of unnecessary purchases and impulse buys in the store. This allows you to buy just what you need and nothing more.
These two points may seem simple, but they can have a dramatic impact on both productivity and cost savings for your business.
