You’ve seen those invoices from office supply vendors — printer ink ain’t cheap. But are you spending more than you have to?
It’s quite possible.
Many of your peers are. Turns out, most printer cartridges signal they’re in need of replacement when there’s still a significant amount of ink left.
That was the finding of a recent study conducted by PC World. The magazine surveyed a whole host of printers and ink cartridges to get the scoop.
The shocking finding? Some models signaled it was time for a new cartridge when there was still 40% ink remaining!
So if employees are quick to toss a cartridge as soon as that initial warning light blinks, you could be wasting a bundle of money.
It’s a good reason to encourage your tech staff to verify that a printer really is almost run dry before that next order to Staples or Office Max goes in.
One caution: Don’t let cartridges run too low — it could seriously damage your printer. And replacing the machine is a lot more expensive than wasted ink.
