    If you are like many companies, print management is not a top priority. For nearly any business or industry, effective print management can provide significant benefit, but no one has the time or passion to take control and truly make it a primary focus. Without this attention to detail, print costs and workflow can easily get out of control.

    January 9, 2019

    A document management workflow is, on the surface, exactly what the name implies. It's a system used to produce, track, edit, store and manage documents associated with a business process. Most businesses have piles of paperwork involved with day to day operations. With expense reports, purchase orders, acquisition forms, payroll and more, business operations can be tedious and document-heavy. In order to keep things moving, documents get passed from one department to the next, requiring approval or changes at each stop.

    Compare Your Purchasing Process: RFP vs. Cooperative Contracts

    By: Jason Boutwell
    May 24, 2018

    The original intent for the Request for Proposal (RFP) process made sense. As part of the procurement process for state agencies, schools and non-profits, RFPs provided a clear way to find out what your organization needed, what was available from vendors and who could provide the best service at the best price.

    As the RFP process became more established, it got to be cumbersome. In response to this, an organization known as Sourcewell set out to simplify the process and eliminate the need for RFPs. With Sourcewell, cooperative contracts do most of the upfront work agencies and schools need before they purchase goods and services. When you look at a product or service on the Sourcewell list, you'll know you're getting a good price upfront and be assured the quality has already been vetted by a process that meets your organization’s policy requirements.

    By: Dan Larkin
    February 22, 2018

    I'd argue that few industries are as hard-copy reliant as legal. Each client case requires an extensive amount of printed paperwork and documentation. Going to trial, for example, means providing physical documents to all parties involved - your client, the court, the defense, etc. 

    One way to maximize your billable time is to minimize time spent printing. Here's how managed print services make that possible:
