Most people don't hear the word "audit" and immediately think about increased efficiency, but that's exactly the case when it comes to print audits from managed print services. Today we'll tell you everything you need to know about print audits--and why they're such a great option for your business.

A Savvy Solution

Print audits are, perhaps, the most important part of managed print services because they're the beginning of everything. A print audit is a careful, detailed look at your entire print environment--from machines and consumables to workflows and security processes. The result is a brand-new wealth of information: which devices are being used the most, what you print and how often, and even where your money is going. Print audits can be your company's best friend because they give you all the necessary data to choose and personalize some truly great print solutions.

Here are a few more benefits of a print audit:

  • Efficiency

If you're wasting time or including too many steps in your workflow, a print audit can show you--and, even better, it can help you identify and implement a solution that will address the problem. Print audits are great news for efficiency!

  • Security

Managed print is all about keeping your machines, networks, data, and company as safe as possible. A print audit helps by analyzing your habits and security processes, identifying little problems that you might otherwise have overlooked. Once you see where the issues are, it's much easier to boost security and keep your business protected.

  • Environmental friendliness

Another great thing a print audit can help you with is going green. By pointing out places where you're being wasteful and helping you come up with greener and more efficient solutions, a print audit can help you protect the environment and your workflows at the same time.
