Everyone knows that money drives business, and optimizing your time the best to your ability is going to end in success. In law firms, time really is money, because a lot of time is spent printing due to the nature of the business. It has been shown that the average lawyer prints 20,000 to 100,000 pages per year. That could cost law firms roughly $8,000 per attorney each year in printing costs alone. Managed print services can offer enhancements to maximize your billable time by minimizing your printing time. Here are three ways managed print services can make generating revenue possible.
- Keep staff productive and focused on their priorities. Law firms are printing and copying for meetings, casework, and trial. A broken or malfunctioning printer would need to be addressed quickly. This is one of the primary reasons you need a managed print service so a live human can come out and fix all problems so you are up and running in no time. By decreasing downtime, you’ll increase productivity.
- Track prints to generate revenue. With a managed print service, you pay cost- per- page, which you can charge your clients to cover those printing costs. Most print management programs have a click allowance per employee, consisting of a fixed number of pages that a firm can print at an agreed upon flat rate.
- Streamline workflow. Law firms can set up certain rules and regulations on their printer, so larger print jobs get diverted to specific machines, and also send print jobs to certain places to conserve on ink.
