What's the Real Cost of Ownership of your Copier or Printer? (TCO)

Posted by JR Copier MN on Feb 8, 2016 2:14:38 PM

When purchasing a new copier or printer, people do not estimate the real cost of ownership (TCO)

Most office managers or buyers think that, by buying a new piece of equipment the head aches of maintenance will go away. All copiers and printers have very good reliability these days, but the cost of operating them can vary drastically from one brand to the next. Some of the other issues with TCO falls in the category of who is in-charge of them, seems that not all the equipment is managed by the same team.

  

This situation was developed because a centralized procurement of these products and services is rarely managed by one department:

  • Photocopiers are centrally funded through facilities.
  • Network printers and scanners are funded by IT
  • Desktop printers are funded by IT or individual departments.
  • High-volume print production is funded through facilities.

Many companies, large and medium sized, are seeking the assistance of management firms who specialize in the audit of their print/copy functions in an effort to to reduce costs and improve security. Their services are designed to benefit the bottom line even if existing contracts are in full effect by providing detailed analysis that includes commonly overlooked costs and contractual items.

The operating costs of traditional cartridge-based page printers can easily exceed more than three times the original purchase price during the life of the product. By utilizing Kyocera’s proprietary ECOSYS technology, a user can typically recoup a printer’s purchase price in one year or less.

The Bottom Line Ask yourself a few basic questions:

  • Do you want to reduce your print and imaging spend?
  • Are your users demanding more from their output technology?
  • Do you want to save space, while saving users valuable time?
  • Are you looking for support and strategic direction from a partner who won’t force you to take a one-size-fits-all approach?
