The Benefits of Your In-Plant Printing Services
- Reduced cost of printing documents – The Gartner Group suggests the average variable cost of printing a document on a desktop laser printer to be $.03 per print. Production equipment typically found in the In-plant incurs a variable cost of about $.006 (80% savings).
- Branding – Every organization possesses a unique brand and is inherently responsible for maintaining their individual brand strategy. Compliance requires pre-determined standards, process, procedures and fulfillment. In-plant personnel possess specialized training and equipment, which ensure consistency of brand throughout the organization.
- Delivery of mission and core competency – A properly equipped in-plant print facility removes the burden of document production from those responsible for delivery of the educational mission. As a result the quality of education provided increases.
- Sustainability – A decentralized print strategy consisting primarily of desktop printers will generate significantly greater landfill waste and consume more energy than a well designed centralized print strategy. A regionalized print plant strategy will consume significantly higher levels of fossil fuels (shipping and transportation) and generate higher levels of waste (incorrect, out of date and unused materials), than a centralized print strategy.
