Cost-Reduction Best Practices

Our partners at Info~Tech Research Group surveyed and talked to more than 200 IT executives about the techniques they are using in four key areas to control cost.

With March Madness afflicting the basketball-loving populace, I wager that office printers around the country are working double-time to produce all those tournament brackets. There's little doubt that printing costs will spike around this time.


While this budgetary ailment is temporary, the effects of poor printer governance often linger, leading to chronically high costs. The need for printing is a business essential, but the expense of all that toner, paper and other supplies - not to mention maintenance - quickly adds up.


Create and implement a policy to control printing practices and costs in your company by downloading Info-Tech's Printer Policy template, available in the IT Downloads library. This easily customizable template includes sections on:

  • Purpose
  • Scope
  • Supported printer information
  • Rules and restrictions
  • Enforcement


Develop your own comprehensive printer policy that prevents waste, reduces expenditures and promotes responsible business use.
