Output represents a significant expense to most businesses. According to accepted industry experience and research, enterprises currently spend from 1 to 3% of their total operating expenditure on hardcopy output. If staff productivity, document production, handling and storage processes are considered these costs rise significantly.
BBC Digital has developed an approach to output device deployment called "Right Fit" that enables organisations to take advantage of the opportunities presented by output for cost containment and improved business performance. Right Fit acknowledges that individual workgroups are unique and have unique output requirements. Once an individual workgroup's requirements are understood most organisations recognise that optimum deployment and user efficiency is achieved through a tailored device deployment.
Substantial cost savings can be made when a Right Fit solution is applied to an unrationalised fleet. These savings can be made with minimal risk of departmental resistance and provide productivity improvements that typically exceed the hard cost savings.
The Right Fit Health Check
The Health Check examines an organisation's selection, configuration, deployment, usage, support, costs and performance associated with printer, photocopier, fax, MFD and scanner management (Output Management). It provides recommendations on how to improve current practices and match industry good practice metrics in device fleet composition, acquisition, deployment and cost management.
Included is a scorecard in the Health Check to measure your score against an organisation that employs good practices in selection, deployment and management of its printer, photocopier, fax and MFD fleet.
