Why a local office equipment service provider instead of a large corporation?
By receiving automated supply shipments from your local dealer instead of from the manufacturer direct you save on time and shipping costs. Local dealers can ship from local instead of from the headquarters of the machine manufacturer. These local shipments will be more cost effective for the dealer and these savings will be passed on to you. Because of the time sensitive nature of these critical supply shipments many packages are shipped with a parcel carrier. Shipping rates from these carriers can be dependent on many factors such as distance and weight. By shipping locally these prices can be reduced, and savings passed to you. Local dealers are also more focused on your business and needs than a manufacturer would be able to be.
What is automated supply replenishment?
Due to modern innovations in printing technologies, modern printers and copiers know supply levels left in the machine. By allowing your copier or printer to communicate with your local office equipment service provider we can provide supplies as they run low. The process of shipping the supplies at your copier or printer’s request instead of having to manually order automates the supply replenishment process. Automated supply replenishment can be sent for all the supply colors for your machine. Opting into receiving automated supplies can also prevent over ordering.
When are supplies sent?
Automated supply shipments are typically sent when the machine reaches a certain threshold of remaining supplies. By default, this threshold is set to 15% of the remaining supply of toner or ink. These thresholds can be reset based on your printing demands to reduce downtime from running out of supplies. For companies where you print pages with a higher concentration of text or lots of pages, higher thresholds can also be a necessity. If you have a higher print volume increasing your automated threshold can prevent unexpected downtime.
How can automated replenishment help?
By receiving automated supply shipments, you streamline the upkeep process of your business by avoiding the potential downtime of being unable to print. Enabling automated shipments is not the loss of options by removing the ability to call orders to your local supplier. Rather, it increases the options in your ability to support your office environment.
Is automated replenishment right for your business?
By choosing to receive automated supply replenishment from your local office equipment service provider you; streamline the ordering process, receive fast and local supply support, support office uptime, reduce pressure to order supplies, and ensure your printing demands are meant. Office managers have one less item to keep track of when running inventory and ordering. This streamlining can be the right choice for fast paced offices and environments where you may need help from outside of your organization.
