Is your business making expensive yet completely avoidable blunders? Many company owners admit that there is room for improvement when it comes to eliminating time and money wastage. Fortunately, with the right solutions at your disposal you can start reaping the benefits instantly.
Arguably the best place to start is your printing network. Used wrongly, printing devices can sap resources and use up your employees’ time. But by avoiding these key pitfalls you can boost your productivity and give waste the boot.
So check out the list and start saving today!
1. Don’t overspend on servicing
When something is wrong with a printer, most people instinctively callout an engineer. However, in the event of minor problems, callouts can be time-consuming and cost-ineffective. Fortunately, many of Samsung’s Multi-Function Printers (MFPs) are equipped with the Smart UX Center, which let you download powerful diagnostic apps.
These apps include the Smart Printer Diagnostic System, an access point for Samsung service manuals, technical information and how-to videos – handy for self-fixing smaller printer issues. And with RemoteCall and RemoteView, it is easy to get real-time troubleshooting help from engineers – all from the comfort of your Smart UX Center. These apps let specialists check your device’s status remotely and provide handy resources. The former operates on PCs only, while RemoteView also allows engineers to access via mobile devices.
2. Don’t compromise on security
A security breach can cost you dearly in the modern world, so prevention is an absolute must. Shoring up potential security holes in your printer network can save you the money you might otherwise spend firefighting breaches.
Samsung’s suite of enterprise-ready solutions, Business Core 2.0 is particularly helpful in this regard. With the Secure Login Core, you can restrict printer access to authorized personnel only. The Printing Security Core, meanwhile, enables secure pull-printing and user authentication, while the Usage Tracker Core lets you keep an eye on who is printing what in your company.
3.Don’t underestimate the power of Android-based platforms
There are currently some two billion monthly active devices running Android – including a range of Samsung MFPs. Smart UX Center-enabled device users can access an array of downloadable apps and widgets, customizing their Android-powered interfaces as they see fit. This helps companies cut down on hardware expenses – allowing for more cost-effective, software-based upgrades.
What is more, many of the apps on the Printing App Center 2.0 are free to download, meaning that in many cases you can customize your printers without spending a cent.
4. Don’t neglect the importance of the cloud and mobiles
The cloud and mobiles are not fads; they are here to stay. So everything you do nowadays needs to be mobile- and cloud-compatible, including printing.
Maximizing mobility is easier with the Mopria Print Library-certified Samsung Print Service plugin, which has given500 million users around the world access to straightforward mobile printing.
Meanwhile, with the Samsung Cloud Print service and Samsung affiliate PrinterOn’s range of enterprise offerings, you can grant your workers access to a whole range of handy (and tailored) cloud printing tools.
5. Don’t let staff waste time– cut out menial tasks with Samsung-powered business hacks
How much time can you really afford to spend checking toner levels and ordering supplies? Customers in certain regions (such as the United States and the UK) can now set their printers to detect when toner levels are low, automatically placing replacement orders with Amazon.
Are your employees spending far too much time on labor-intensive workflows? Did you know that there is a Smart UX Center app that can help you integrate a whole host of tasks, like scanning, optical character recognition, and file distribution into single workflows? Named Dynamic Workflow, this app is something you can use to create tailored workflows, harnessing the power of a multitude of apps all in one go – and even save workflows as one-touch shortcuts for future use.
Remember, it all counts – because in today’s office, time is one commodity no serious business owner can afford to waste!
