This paper considers the perils of printing on the budgets of SMBs. It draws attention to how easy it is for print costs to spiral out of control. It highlights the importance of monitoring user activity, in terms of who, when and what employees are printing. From this, parameters and rules can be set to help reduce costs. This will then minimise wastage and enhance security. Read this paper for a case study of how print solutions can help to bring print tasks that would typically need to be external in-house, and also how smart printing can benefit the business, employees, customers and environment.
