Papyrus: manage your printing costs effectively
Expenditure linked to printing can amount to between 1% and 5% of a company’s turnover. Printers represent a significant potential for cost savings.
To respond to these issues and support companies in the upgrade and management of their printing assets, Econocom has developed Papyrus by Econocom.
Papyrus means: dealing with a single person for overall management of the project, paying a single licence fee with periodic invoicing, aggregation of costs and breakdown per analytical cost centre, multi-supplier management and a unified reporting system.
The components of printing costs (hardware, maintenance, consumables, service and support) are managed within a single invoicing system. This solution allows companies to reach all the targets set for their printing infrastructure cost-control projects.
Thanks to its experience, Econocom offers companies solutions that are adapted to their needs and totally supplier-neutral.
Papyrus, customized support in four stages:
- Analyze the existing environment: identify the number of printing sites and assess print volumes. Analyze user needs and habits, draw up a new installation plan and fix printer requirements.
- Define appropriate architecture and processes: Create an on-line catalogue of necessary products and services, adapt hardware to the needs of each type of business, centralize management of equipment procurement and automate re-ordering of consumables. Draw up and monitor the roll-out plan
- Implement an integrated printing policy: redirect print jobs to appropriate hardware, install specific fonts, set up customized printing rules, control access to non-essential functions.
- Keep the infrastructure running: trigger incident alerts automatically, intervene nationally within the time-limits imposed, manage and adjust actual consumption according to user profiles.
