Many organisations are turning to managed print services (MPS) to optimise their print infrastructure through device consolidation and streamlined print management.
Not only does an MPS deliver significant cost savings and productivity improvements it offers environmental benefits and helps organisations reduce their carbon footprint.
By deploying energy-efficient devices, multifunction printers (MFPs) and implementing responsible and secure printing practices, MPS enables organisations to cut energy usage, eliminate unnecessary printing and reduce waste. With hardware disposal and consumables recycling an MPS can play a key role in an organisation’s green IT strategy.
As many governments around the world introduce or propose charges based on the amount of carbon emitted by organisations, it is important that organisations gain control over their energy usage. With this in mind sustainability continues to move up the corporate agenda and Apogee continues to look at new offerings and technologies that will help reduce businesses carbon footprint.
Apogee’s service offerings has the client’s green IT agenda in mind as we continually work towards a more sustainable planet. We offer our clients a Remote Management Application (ARMA) and a sustainability program focused on reforestation through a new innovative PrintReleaf programme.
Apogee’s unique Remote Management Application (ARMA) is quick, simple and secure to implement and once installed, the application automatically monitors and supports clients by proactively managing all output on their print devices. The application automates consumables and specific spare parts delivery, improving uptime that dramatically enhances client service and support.
The new ARMA technology integrates with the PrintReleaf platform which is an environment initiative and the world’s first program that automatically converts your paper footprint into actual trees. As you print, you actively replant trees in forests that need it most around the world. This initiative allows clients to offset their paper footprint through reforestation supporting the organisations CSR goals.
By becoming involved with both ARMA and PrintReleaf, your business can be seen as having tighter control of your print activity and be seen to be implementing green IT practices. Organisations have access to a live dashboard showing the progress of reforestation. The dashboard will calculate the paper volume, weight, and size data to help demonstrate your contribution.
Apart from the contribution to the reforestation through PrintReleaf and ARMA the social benefits are enhancing customer and supplier perception of brands today and many organisations are actively implementing ‘green’ IT practices that reduce waste and lower costs without affecting employee productivity.
