"The current global economic downturn will create challenges for enterprises well into 2009. Successful companies will implement strategies that will enable them to weather the storm and achieve a strong competitive edge in the eventual recovery. Some experts point to outsourcing as one such strategy, which is likely to increase in 2009. Oce Business Services is sharing insights on how specific document management processes, whether outsourced or managed internally, can help organizations lower costs and streamline operations during a downturn.
These processes include enterprise-wide print/copy management. According to Gartner, most enterprises do not manage their office printers well, having too much and often the wrong equipment and supplies for their needs. Actively managing office printing can reduce spending by 10 percent to 30 percent while reaping real environmental benefits ("Key Issues for Print Management, 2008," Pete Basiliere, March 2008)."
