Making Smart Schools Smarter With Cloud Printing Solutions

4 Ways to Reduce Costs and Improve Efficiency

There’s no denying - the era of connected classrooms is in full swing. But it wasn’t that long ago “technology at school” meant a few computers in the library or computer lab. Now, students take virtual fieldtrips, use Microsoft PowerPoint™ to make presentations and collaborate with peers and educators across cloud storage platforms on school-owned and personal mobile devices.

Educational institutions are adopting new technologies at an accelerated pace and there’s no sign this trend will slow down. In fact, the opposite is true; areas formerly undisturbed by technology advancements are now front-and-center. Take print for example, chances are if a school district hasn’t completed a full-scale print fleet audit, developed a strategy to address modern efficiency and usability demands, and embraced cloud printing solutions, they will in the near future.

The process may start with a fleet audit but it doesn’t end there. The next step is to assess and address the universe of cloud printing solutions available that work with devices to increase efficiency and save costs at every level. These solutions include print hardware and software that now supports cloud infrastructure, collaborative learning, connectivity, and robust print security, in the cloud.

How to Leverage Private Clouds in Hybrid IT Transformations

Today’s business climate is increasingly competitive, with new players coming to market daily. Modern enterprises must stay agile if they want to remain relevant.

Most companies understand that becoming more responsive means implementing a hybrid infrastructure. While many agile, data-driven organizations have embraced cloud solutions in this mix, others struggle with cost and security concerns.

Successful digital enterprises realize that integrating cloud solutions is critical to a successful hybrid transformation. In fact, a 451 Research Group study found that 70% of organizations today leverage multiple clouds. Since there is no “one size fits all” approach, the blend of public and private clouds in a hybrid infrastructure depends on individual business goals and needs.

Why Mobile Printing is Important in Enterprise Environments

With over 80% of Internet users surfing on smartphones these days and mobile device usage growing nearly 60% year over year, there’s no denying that technology drives our actions. Once seen as a distraction in the workplace, mobile devices are now advantages to companies with field sales and other positions that need quick access to information on the fly. This digital transformation is also being aided by the adoption of BYOD policies and fuels the need for mobility.

The downsides to digital mobility include complications associated with printing on the go. Laptops, phones, and tablets have an advantage in the field but when it comes to printing a contract for signature or a document needed to bolster a sale, print has been a recurring obstacle. Until recently, field staff and other mobile employees or those who prefer tablets to laptops lacked print capability options; but not anymore.

How to Reduce Enterprise Print Related Costs

According to Gartner, for every $500K in annual revenue, there’s an opportunity to cut print costs by 10% to 30%. With the worldwide enterprise print market exceeding $172 billion in 2015, the potential savings are enormous no matter the size of the organization.

The print cost reduction challenge

Historically, print purchases, management, and configuration were accomplished at the departmental level resulting in “printer sprawl” or “break-fix delivery,” as industry experts call it. In this scenario, equipment fails and is quickly replaced in order to prevent staff downtime, but there isn’t a cohesive strategy to inform buying decisions. With cohesion and strategy missing, the organization’s printer fleet adopts an ad-hoc appearance with a wide variety of manufacturers, vendors, and capabilities.
