Cut Your Print and Ink Costs

admin : February 26, 2015 3:46 pm : Main Posts, Portland, Print

Champion Business Solutions is helping you cut your costs in your printing and ink. A few simple tweaks, tricks, and tips is all it takes to take control and make the most out of your office. Don’t waste time and money when office solutions are all around you. We are helping Portland businesses save money while also creating a more cohesive and effective office environment.

Modify Your Document

An easy, responsible way to cut costs and create an efficient printing environment is to simply look over your document. Shrink the document in Microsoft Word or any other program you’re using and look for large, unnecessary gaps or breaks in the document. Make the most out of what you’re printing.

Print Duplex

The unsung hero of the printing world is Duplex, printing on both sides. It’s incredible how easy it is yet how often it slips our mind. Endorse printing duplex and possibly include it in your office printing policy. Print duplex and cut your costs by 50% easily, without having to cut down on the information.

Think Green

As a whole, does your office print a lot? What happens to the majority of those documents? Consider what your printing and think of alternatives. For example, in our highly digitized world, we can now access most things right from our own devices. If you print notes or documents for important presentations or meetings, think of making the switch to digital. Use your phone or tablet to share documents. Think outside the box and think green!

Solid Ink

According to Xerox, “Compared with color laser printing technology, Solid Ink generates up to 90% less printing waste because there are no cartridges to dispose of and less packaging to add to landfills.” Consider switching to Solid Ink and contributing to a greener way of doing things.

Champion Business Solutions is here to help you with every aspect of your office environment. Give us a call and start saving today!

Please Print Responsibly

admin : December 22, 2014 9:14 pm : Main Posts

We are all printing advocates but we need to shift towards a more sustainable way to print. It’s not necessarily what you print but how you print it. Xerox is taking active steps towards a greener future. Together, Champion Business Solutions is ensuring that you can also band with us to contribute to a sustainable future. Responsibility is a large part of the Green initiative. According to a 2009 study by the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization, printing’s greatest impact on the environment is from paper—both the production of paper and the waste generated in printing. PRIMIR reports that the paper industry:

  • Is the fourth largest emitter of greenhouse gases among U.S. manufacturing industries
  • Contributes 9 percent of total carbon dioxide emissions from manufacturing
  • Is the second largest user of electricity in the United States, at 75 billion kilowatt hours in 2006

Together we can make a considerable difference in printing; what we print, when we print, and how we print. So, how can you help? There are many things that you can do for your equipment and around the office to make a positive impact towards your printing environment.

  • Buying ENERGY STAR® and eco-label certified devices
  • Use intelligent software to manage energy use
  • Reduce paper usage with default two-sided (duplex) printing
  • Use Cartridge-free, solid ink
  • Take a part in take-back and recycling programs

There is a sustainable future in printing thanks to your support and corporate responsibility. Take part in the Xerox Green World Alliance and help us save even more! This program is dedicated to reusing and recycling various parts and supplies from office equipment. Since its beginning, the Green World Alliance has had more than 2.7 million cartridges and toner containers returned. Become part of a green movement. At Champion Business Solutions every day is Earth Day. Find out what else you can do to help here.

Go Green and Save Your Business Big

admin : August 11, 2014 8:32 pm : Main Posts

As an office, there’s no better time to go green than now. Energy efficiency is an important step towards a sustainable future and this holds true in an office environment. There’s more ways to go green than most people think. Reducing your office’s carbon footprint is beneficial for your health, your company’s wallet, and for your futures. Champion Business Solutions understands what this may mean to small businesses but going green is easier than you think; the smallest change can have the greatest impact.

Buy In Bulk

Buy your products in bulk, whether it’s paper or toner, buying in bulk minimizing packaging and saves you money on shipping. Make sure you always look for words like “high efficiency” or “high capacity” when deciding on your bulk goods.

Reuse, Return, Recycle

Recycling programs for toners and cartridges have taken the office world by storm with their easy capabilities and tremendous rewards. Check out you manufacturers and ask more about their recycling program.

Consider Multifunction Devices

Multifunction devices are a must-have for businesses that need an all-inclusive machine for all their office needs. If your business has multiple smaller machines (black and white printer, scanner, fax, etc.), a multifunction printer (MFP) will give you all of those capabilities in one machine. They even use environmentally friendly and cost-efficient solid ink. According to Xerox, MFP’s use 90% less waste than a color laser printer. Solid Ink also eliminates spills and stains!

Energy Star Compliance

Energy Star compliant products are a no-brainer in the office environment. Save money on your energy bills with devices that recognize your businesses unique usage patterns and automatically go to pwer saving modes to increase efficiency.

Rethink Paper

Reuse, recycle, and reprint. Or perhaps think about going paperless. There has been ongoing discussions in the industry about whether paper is obsolete or not. While it is decidedly not obsolete, it is being used less than previous years. You may want to consider going paperless for certain documents or reports and sticking to paper only when it’s necessary.

What’s the Big Deal About Office Assessments?

admin : July 21, 2014 5:45 pm : Main Posts

Office assessments may not be on the top of your list but they should be, particularly if you have new devices on the way, are considering upgrading, or you’re finding that your bill is increasing or jobs aren’t being performed that way you expect. Printers and various other multifunctional devices are an imperative part of your everyday, office environment. From clients to employees, the efficient performance of your printers is an integral part of your business’ success. So how can you maximize this? Office assessment is a cost effective way to pinpoint where there is unnecessary waste, what your print environment is like, and areas of improvement.

Xerox says it best, “It doesn’t matter what size your business it; if you want to get output costs under control and set the stage for improvements in productivity and work process, you have to start with an assessment.”

When you schedule an office assessment, you are giving experts the opportunity to collect data that can identify areas of opportunity within your document infrastructure and help us develop a plan of action to get your business where it needs to be. It’s not uncommon for businesses to go unaware of these problems. A Corporate Printing study by the IDC identified that companies can spend between 2-3% of their annual revenues on documents and document-related issues. Within your printer and multifunctional devices, there can be hidden cost areas that you may not even be aware of.

Office assessments are the easiest, most effective way to deal with possible printer issues and develop a solution towards them. Typically there are four areas in an office assessment that we focus on: Management Process, Supplies, Device Proliferation, and Hidden Costs. Within each of these, experienced technicians look at your devices, within your network and IT areas, as well as delve into input, output, and your environmental impact.

Don’t waste your time and money with troubled devices; contact us today for your office assessment and start saving today!

Samsung’s New NFC Innovations

admin : June 17, 2014 7:58 pm : Main Posts

Samsung is reinventing the wheel in innovation. Samsung printers are making promising printing solutions with efficient print speeds, unnecessary waste, and cost-effective mobile printing. The new MPF Xpress C4XX series, MultiXpress CLX-9301 color series and SCX-8128 mono series were released late last month in Suwon and making mobile printing easier and more accessible than ever.

“Pushing the boundaries of innovation is what our printing solutions is all about” says David SW Song, Senior Vice President, Strategic Sales and Marketing Team, Printing Solution Business. Samsung is making mobile printing easy with their printing solutions technology upgrade. Printing solutions can be solved digitally through innovation, creating a solution that is affordable without sacrificing features and tasks.

Near-Field Communication (NFC) is technology found in smartphones. With a simple touch, data can be transferred over radio waves. Samsung printers are utilizing their own smartphone functionality into their printers. Innovations in technology is making wireless printing more of a need than a want. With the NFC smartphone technology, users can print directly with the default print button. The Samsung’s mobile printing app is available for certain devices. NFC will allow users to print by simply touching their devices to the printer through the Samsung printing app. The Xpress Series supports Google Cloud Print and also provides server free printer solutions with Business Core Printing Solutions software.

Samsung uses a web-based open platform tool, XOA. The software installed on the printer series is intended to reduce IT costs. XOA is intended to provide printing solutions, increased security, MPS, and remote and accessible monitoring.

“The Xpress C410W series that support NFC are a good example of how Samsung is pioneering the mobile printing solution and NFC printer market,” said Joosang Eun, Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing Team, Samsung Printing Solution, shortly after the announcement of their NFC Printers. Eun went on to confirm, “Samsung will continue to expand NFC-enabled mobile printing solutions to small to medium business user.”
