With cyber attacks on the rise, customers are often more interested in talking about comprehensive security than printing. To meet this challenge, you need to get your audience’s attention and learn how to shift the conversation to achieve your print objectives.

We have all heard the term “Garbage In, Garbage Out,” and usually nod our heads when we hear it because it applies to most applications in life. When it comes to information management, most of the emphasis is placed on the repository/workflow portion of the application or system. There is no denying these systems are vital to your business — they run your business by housing all your critical business data. But regardless of how good your back-end system is, what happens when you feed it garbage? NOTHING – and that’s the problem.

Have you ever felt like you are already behind and it’s only the beginning of the year? Every January countless sales producers receive their new quota and immediately feel like they are behind. For some people, this can be almost debilitating. For others, it sparks the drive to succeed … at least for the moment. Somewhere over the next few weeks, or even days, after the initial and momentary motivation, there comes that sinking feeling. After all, if you were already fully capable of delivering the new higher number, wouldn’t you already be doing it?? Reread that question a few times. Now read it again. Then consider the popular definition of insanity, “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

At one time, when print management was in its infancy, the most important considerations for an organization implementing it were “how do I collect the page counts,” “how do I account for cost per page” and “how much should I charge?” While these are still valid questions, they are not indicative of today’s mature managed print services (MPS) market, which has moved well beyond the initial value propositions of reduced costs and optimized printer fleets. Today’s MPS platform, in fact, transcends even the device itself, and is frequently concerned with user management.

For decades, business professionals and social commentators have entertained the idea of a paperless office. While it is clear that electronic processes have significantly transformed business workflows, it is also evident that most offices are still far from being paperless. Print is a time-tested way for important information to be absorbed, communicated, and organized. It continues to offer benefits around comprehension, convenience, and simplicity. As a result, businesses large and small still rely heavily on print, and often on devices with the added ability to scan, integrate with business systems and connect with cloud services.

“Know what’s in your toolbox.” My calculus teacher was fond of this mantra. Sometimes, an equation could be simplified with a basic algebraic concept instead of a more complex formula. But if you didn’t know what “tools” you had, getting stuck for days became a very real possibility. By being aware of all of the things at your disposal, finding a solution becomes a more routine exercise.
