Today’s employees are a lot more environmentally conscious, at home and in the workplace. Many are willing to recycle paper, use their own coffee cup instead of disposable paper cups, and shut lights before they leave. But companies can take larger steps to improve green initiatives. Reliable Office Solutions offers six ways that their products can make a business more sustainable:
Incorporate managed print services to oversee printing devices – multifunction and desktop printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines. Energy can be saved by distributing the workflow to the most appropriate device – such as printers that hold only recycled paper, or with “fast print” settings to reduce toner usage.
Set up health check audits of your office systems to determine if they have outlived their productivity and performance. Reliable Office Solutions can make recommendations to improve a company’s overall sustainability efforts.
Eliminate wasteful spending by using a printing workflow solution that maintains an accurate record of printer usage, and periodically sends reports to an office administrator – including when it’s time to order more toner or paper. Printing behaviors are identified, then addressed to improve efficiency of print jobs and to ensure security.
Reduce printing with document management systems. Instead of printing paper documents for files, they can be securely deposited in archives designated by the employee, who dictates the settings and permissions to determine who will have access to these files.
Software solutions include document capture to reduce carbon emissions and paper consumption by digitizing information and storing it electronically. Paper documents can also be merged with online business workflow to eliminate paper and ink usage.
Invest in office furniture made with high recycled content and crafted for longevity. Reliable Office Solutions also partners with a company that offers a take-back solution for surplus office furniture and materials, diverting them to public agencies and charities instead of landfills.
These are just several ways to be environmentally responsible in the workplace, and Reliable Office Solutions offers many other options. To discuss your goals, call 718-979-6000 or visit Reliable Office Solutions.
