Three Simple Solutions to Save Big in 2016

Three Simple Solutions to Save Big in 2016

If you're like most businesses, cost control is at the top of your resolution list for the new year. But new opportunities to save can be hard to find, and it may seem like you've run out of options. Don't have the funds to invest in major changes? Not to worry. Here are a few tips to help you nail down some key areas where one simple change can lead to major cost savings.

1. Embrace Green Solutions

It used to be a given that green alternatives were more expensive, but that's not the case any more. Green solutions, even when requiring an initial cash investment, can produce big returns on investment. From compact fluorescent lighting to paperless office processes, the savings are substantial.

2. Allow Employees to Work From Home

It's here, and it's working. The number of employees working from home has skyrocketed in recent years, and for good reason. Employees appreciate the flexibility and employers reap valuable cost-saving benefits. It's a win-win for both of you.

3. Partner With Xerox

Xerox offers state-of-the-art technologies specifically targeting the area of cost control. Here are just a few:

  • Earth Smart Printing — Settings to eliminate unnecessary pages and default to automatic two-sided printing can lead to big savings.
  • Xerox Standard Accounting —You can't reduce what you can't measure. Find out exactly how much you're printing and who's printing it. Place limits on quantities and color printing to cut back on waste.
  • Xerox ColorQube — Find out how to get superior color printing for the same price as black and white.
  • Remote Print Services —Consumables can put a dent in revenues. Keep track of what you're using and take advantage of automatic supply reordering so you don't run out during critical projects.
