Implement a Printer Service Contract for Your Business to Improve Efficiency
Printing is a vital business process and if you aren’t managing your printing tasks and don’t have a printer service contract in place, there’s no way to ensure that you aren’t wasting money on printing. In fact, many companies are quite shocked when they finally realise how much money they are wasting on printing expenses. Without a service contract in place, you can also expect your business’s efficiency to take a dive.
Your printer should be considered a valuable business asset, just like a car or other heavy machinery. You wouldn’t keep using your business car for years without a service for fear of costly repairs or mishaps along the way. It should be much the same with your business printer. By taking care of small problems that crop up along the way, you can avoid paying large bills for costly repairs. You can also see potential costly problems in advance, before they become big expensive problems.
Servicing your printer annually will be highly beneficial to your business. First and foremost, it extends the life span of your printer and secondly, it ensures that your printer can and will function for longer and at a higher level of quality. In our line of work, it’s a regular occurrence to find a business owner adamant that they need to replace their existing printer, when in fact all it requires is a good service and ongoing maintenance to ensure that it is restored to its former levels of productivity and print accuracy.
Modern printers are designed to warn you when they need to be serviced and it’s advised that you never ignore or overlook this warning. If you have a managed print service in place, your service provider will be able to advise you on when it’s time to service, repair and/or replace your business printers.
If you’re looking for a few reasons why you should never opt out of a service contract, here are our top picks:
- The service contract usually includes all maintenance, including minor components and parts needed to keep the printer in good operating order.
- Improved print quality. We’ve all encountered printers that start to leave weird marks on the page or don’t quite print as clearly as expected and this incurs extra expenses for wasted prints and re-prints. Often, all it requires is a good service to get things back on track.
- Save money in the long run. Doing small repairs and services as you go along will help to avoid major damage or malfunctions – we all know that those kinds of repairs are costly!
- Minimise downtime. If you have a service contract in place, you have someone available in printing emergencies or crises to help you out. By having a repair and maintenance team on hand, you won’t have to experience lengthy downtimes while the unit is worked on. The repair/service can be handled on site and if the problem is bigger than expected, a stand-in printer can be provided for the interim.
- Ensure your printer lasts longer – this translates to a greater return on investment. The longer you use your printer for, the more you save in the long run. Regular maintenance will ensure that your printer stays in the best possible condition for longer, thus increasing its expected lifespan.
