Consolidate and Optimize Your Output Strategy

​We help our law firm clients recover significant savings in their multifunction device (MFD) strategy by thoroughly analyzing:

  • Overall output and input workflows
  • Feature and technology requirements
  • Cost recovery platforms
  • Standardization across firm offices
  • Cost structure including equipment flexibility options, zero impressions based pricing, OEM and/or re-manned toner options
  • Contract terms such as co-terminus language throughout term, guaranteed service level agreements, no equipment return fees

One common mistake is a firm’s reluctance to remove older printers that are running well. The justification is they are paid for (fully-depreciated), so why not keep them around for the end users? This argument usually ignores the service and supply costs for this equipment and will have an impact on your total output costs because they are diverting volume away from more cost-effective output devices.

Output / Input Management and Expense Recovery

Our clients realize improved workflows that accommodate increased scanning, the need for color, and strategies for associated expense recovery — all resulting in output and input cost reductions in the neighborhood of 19%. They’re also experiencing increased client and end-user satisfaction due to improved quality and reduced operational inefficiencies and disruptions.
