Managed Print Consulting

Printing is one of the least audited expenses in business today. While most companies actively negotiate the price they pay for printing technologies, few actually assess and manage the costs of supplies and maintenance—which comprise the vast majority of print expenditures. As a result, total printing costs are rising dramatically for many companies, often consuming up to three percent (3%) of annual revenues. 

At Datamax, we know that significant improvement opportunities exist for most organizations when it comes to managing their printing.  The Datamax Print Cost Audit (PCA)™ and Limited Print Cost Audit (LPCA)™ are engagement tools we use to help companies develop effective, enterprise-wide print management strategies for controlling their print costs.  Our Print Cost Audits empower companies to make a noteworthy impact on IT, the environment (DatamaxGreen) and profitability.
