Returning to work after the festive season provides the perfect opportunity to make some professional resolutions. Making the right ones can help your company get the year off to a winning start.
Done wrong, printing can take up a lot of your company’s valuable time and resources – and can cost you a lot of money. But when you resolve to print smart, you can soon find yourself in winning ways – and well on the path to business success in 2017!
Printing Resolution #1: Streamline Your Business
One way to streamline the way you work is to cut down on the amount of time your printers spend out of action – sitting there waiting for engineers to come out to fix issues. Situations like this are time-consuming for your staff, requiring them to take time out of their days to call IT admins, who then need to take time out of their own days to call out engineers.
Samsung has two powerful printer applications that can help you cut down on and even eliminate this wasteful downtime.
Samsung Printer Diagnostics System (SPDS) is a tool that helps users identify problems fast, and follow easy-to-understand guides that allow for speedy resolution. Available in nine languages, the tool provides a handy way to help stop minor issues causing you major headaches.
Coupled with other apps like Smart Update and RemoteCall, SPDS can help you keep your spending on maintenance down, while improving your devices’ longevity and reducing delays.
Printing Resolution #2: Expand Your Team
What if geography were no obstacle to you when you were forming a team? What if you could collaborate with people on the other side of the world? Well, with Samsung printers, you can do precisely that.
Many of Samsung’s innovative multi-function printers (MFPs) feature technology that allows you to instantaneously share documents and collaborate like never before.
Samsung’s newest MFPs are equipped with the Smart UX Center, an Android-powered tablet PC-like display unit. This allows users to print, scan and send documents anywhere they like, using tools like Google Docs and Microsoft SharePoint.
And with a range of handy cloud-based solutions, including the services offered by Samsung affiliate PrinterOn, global expansion is easier than ever.
PrinterOn’s services include email printing with the innovative GoPrint Mobile solution. This lets you send email attachments to a printer’s unique address. Your printer automatically processes email attachments, with no further user input required. You can also upload documents via a customizable web portal URL.
Additionally, the PrintWhere Driver provides a file-to-print workflow compatible with PCs and tablets running Windows.
Printing Resolution #3: Embrace Digital Document Management
The paperless office is still a distant dream – America’s Environmental Protection Agency says the average worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper a year. But even if your business has to print a lot, it does not mean that you should forsake digital document management. After all, effective digitization can free up much-needed office space, and reduce the amount of time you spend filing printed documents.
Again, Samsung can provide answers, this time with the apps available for the Smart UX Center. The Scan and Send app, for example, let you send scanned files to multiple destinations, including email addresses, USB sticks, FTP locations, fax machines or PCs. Scan and Send also lets you make edits to scanned documents, alter color settings and customize backgrounds.
What is more, the Business Core 2.0 suite features the Document Workflow Core, which lets you automate the document management process and digitally capture, process and distribute your documents.
Printing Resolution #4: Step Up Your Security
Security matters in the modern world – now more than ever. Last year, IBM’s Cost of Data Breach Study found that the consolidated total cost of a villain exploiting flaw in your security system has now risen from US$3.8 million to US$4 million.
Samsung understands the importance of security to your business. That is why its MFPs are equipped with the User Authentication feature, which protects them against unauthenticated access. Should an unverified user try to use your MFP, they will able to see its basic status, but will not be able to make changes to its settings.
With five innovative network security keys and comprehensive protection for the Smart UX Center, your business stays protected from printing security threats, at a time when staying secure can mean the difference between success and failure.
Resolve to Succeed
Businesses that plan for the year ahead, making important pledges about the way they will operate in the future, are more likely to succeed in their goals.
And as 2017 gets into gear, Samsung helps you make resolutions that you can keep – about streamlining, global expansion, document management and security.
