There’s a Latin proverb that’s often quoted by educators: “Repetitio mater studiorum est,” or “repetition is the mother of all learning.”
Time and time again, repetition has proven an efficient means to boost comprehension in the classroom. When it comes to the office, however, repetitive practices represent the textbook definition of inefficiency, often costing businesses time, resources and patience.
In an effort to work smarter, many small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) today are addressing wasteful office habits through automation. Featuring a bevy of efficient services designed to minimize document waste and save users time, including Business Core 2.0 and Amazon Dash Replenishment, Samsung’s multifunction printers (MFPs) offer intuitive tools to help businesses streamline repetitive printing tasks and lower their overheads.
According to a recent survey conducted by Thomson Reuters and the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants, when asked what factor they believed would have the greatest impact on their company 25 years from now, 51 percent of business leaders cited automation – wherein machines and computers manage tasks traditionally undertaken by humans.
Fifty-four percent of respondents said that they believe their company currently has the skills to take advantage of automated technologies, which offer businesses the prospects of streamlining monotonous tasks and reducing risks of human error. Let’s take a look at a few of Samsung’s intuitive, automated printing solutions that make it easy for businesses to experience more efficiency in their document workflows.
A Strong Core
Installing an integrated, server-less printing network is a great way for SMBs to strengthen the efficiency and flexibility of their document management systems.
Samsung Printing developed Business Core 2.0 to make it easy for SMBs to install and manage server-less printing networks. The modular solutions featured in the suite offer intuitive tools to help SMBs reduce printing-associated costs, save time, and get more done more securely.
Included among the suite’s five convenient tools are the Printing Security Core, which utilizes secure pull-printing and authentication to ensure that documents are released only to authorized users; the Secure Login Core, which utilizes a variety of authentication methods, including ID cards, passwords, proximity cards and personal ID numbers, to safeguard documents from unauthorized access; the Cloud Connector Core, which offers simple, secure access to the cloud for printing and scanning; and the Usage Tracker Core, which provides a simple interface to help you keep track of your printer’s use, costs and users, and manage your output more efficiently.
Each service simplifies an essential component of document management, and frees up staff to focus on pressing tasks.
Less Repetition, More Results
The fifth and final tool included in Business Core 2.0, the Document Workflow Core, was specifically designed to help businesses enhance work efficiency by automating workflow and document distribution.
Document Workflow Core offers companies – especially those in industries such as healthcare, finance and government, which handle paper documents in each facet of their business – a simple and economical means to create seamless infrastructures for repetitive digital document handling. The function allows users to scan and, with a single tap of the printer panel, organize documents – such as invoices, for instance – and instantly distribute them to predefined destinations.
Thanks to Samsung’s updated Zone OCR function, Document Workflow Core is also capable of automatically categorizing digitized scans and faxes by barcode, caller ID and metadata. For institutions such as healthcare providers and government offices, this significantly reduces the amount of manual labor required for repetitive tasks like categorizing and filing patient and personnel documents.
Easy Toner Top-ups
Lastly, to help streamline printer maintenance and free up businesses to focus on productivity, Samsung, in collaboration with Amazon, is providing a toner-delivery service called Dash Replenishment.*
When a Dash Replenishment-enabled printer detects low toner levels, it automatically sends a notification to Samsung Cloud, which is then relayed to Amazon so replacements may be ordered. This process ensures that customers receive ink cartridges as soon as they need them – saving them time and potential headaches.
The convenient service is currently available in select markets. Businesses using Samsung printers may sign up via the Samsung Mobile Print app, as well as the easy-to-use Samsung Easy Printer Manager (EPM) PC software.
An Innovative Answer
There’s another popular (and more modern) proverb that states that “fortune favors the bold”. For SMBs, this means remaining up-to-date and innovative, and constantly exploring ways to amplify efficiency. By offering tools to help them minimize repetitive tasks and reduce overheads, Samsung’s printers are making it possible for more businesses to do just that.
