At The Polack Corporation we recognize that when you reduce your carbon footprint you become less wasteful and more energy efficient. This not only is good for the planet but for your pocketbook as well.
If you look around your office right now, you'll see areas where you could be more green. While some options like turning off the lights may not be practical, there are many ways we can help you use technology to become more energy efficient.
We are here to help you get a grip on all aspects of print and document management, including their impact on the environment. Whether you'd like to simply step a toe into being more green or you'd like to focus all your efforts, we can help your company save money through more efficient document working practices.
Here are eight ways how we can help make your office more green today:
1. Minimizing power consumption – Smart hardware with built-in energy-saving technology.
All our devices contain the latest in low power consumption technology, with incredibly short warm-up times, ensuring eco-friendly service without affecting productivity. Ultra-low sleep modes with adjustable time settings and ECO night modes that turn off machines at dusk are Energy Star compliant. They save you money and reducing your office's environmental impact.
2. Fleet 'right-sizing' and optimization – Do you really need all those printers?
In some offices, it seems that printers are breeding like rabbits. The lack of even a rudimentary print policy leads to the ad-hoc buying of printers that quickly become unsustainable in terms of energy use, running costs, and management.
As part of our print management services, we assess usage patterns and optimize device placement to minimize redundant or under-utilized copiers, fax machines, and printers. We will help you deploy more energy efficient, centralized. multifunction printers (MFPs) that copy, fax, print, and scan wherever possible and limit the deployment of inefficient, single-function devices
3. Recycling toner cartridges, parts & machines – Save money and be more green.
We know that disposing your used toner cartridges, toner bottles, and machines can be confusing. What is recyclable? Is a toner cartridge an electrical item or not? Where do you dispose of an entire photocopier?
We can help you manage all of your printer assets by proving environmentally-friendly return, reuse, and recycling services as standard. We even handle the return postage for toner cartridges and advise which items can go into your general recycling. And at the end their useful life, we'll collect then ethically dispose of and recycle your print equipment.
4. Helping you move you towards a paperless workplace - Put an end to inefficient paper processes.
Traditional paper-based document workflows are inefficient. Moving paper from A to B requires printing, postage, travel time, labor time, and many other factors which add costs and use resources.
Electronic document workflows reduce paper. By using scan-to-email technology to distribute documents electronically and storing scanned documents in a document management system, you will not only save time and increase productivity but also reduce costs and use fewer resources.
5. Redirecting printing to the most-efficient device – Automatic rules for automatic savings.
Energy and resource savings can be found in everyday printing by using the most-suitable device for the task at hand. Rules-based printing using print management software can automatically redirects print jobs to the best device. This will optimize energy consumption, ensure use of resource-saving features, and control access to color output.
6. Reducing paper usage – Your quickest and easiest way to be more sustainable.
Whether it is encouraging double-sided printing, reducing the number of uncollected print jobs, or making users accountable for their print use, there are many ways to reduce paper waste and usage. Print management software, electronic document workflows, document management solutions, and our print management services, all have a positive effect on minimizing paper use.
7. Accessing mobile documents – Enable your employees to work from anywhere.
With document management software, your employees can securely access company files and records from anywhere at any time. You'll help them reduce the need visit office locations and make unnecessary and inefficient journeys. They'll use less fuel, less paper, less time, and produce more. It's a win-win.
8. Using Eco-friendly Technology – Designed to be more green from the start.
When it comes to green technology, our tier 1 manufacturers, Savin and Ricoh, are clearly discernible from their competitors. In their pursuit of sustainability, they have developed printing technologies such as Polymerized Toner, which uses 30% less energy, and Quick Start-Up Technology, which enables multifunction printers to recover quickly from energy-saving modes. If sustainability is important to your company, then these technologies can make a difference when choosing your supplier.
With The Polack Corporation's focus on applying technology to solve your business problems, we are sure to have a solution to your ever changing needs to reduce your carbon footprint.
