Get the Most from Your Printer Fleet
According to estimates by Gartner Group, companies typically spend 1-3% of their annual revenue on printing. At the same time, businesses often underestimate their printing needs and printing-related expenses. Without having measurable cost controls in place, your office’s budget can become needlessly high. It's important to understand your print needs and adjust your print environment accordingly.

Our Print Management solutions allow your business to realize large savings of up to 30% on total in-house printing costs.

Getting Started With Managed Print
When implementing Managed Print for the first time, the best place to start is at the beginning! While Managed Print solutions will vary from company-to-company depending on unique needs, the first step in the process is always the print environment analysis. This analysis provides insight into your current operations and helps guide decisions regarding your printing to provide cost savings, security improvements, and increased transparency.

COECO’s Print Assessment
Print Management starts with an assessment of how you currently manage your print devices. The assessment answers three key questions:
- Which users and departments print the most documents, and how often are they printing?
- Which of your printers get the most use, and which ones are underutilized?
- What is the calculated cost per document printed?
This assessment gives you a clear picture of device usage and print volume as part of your daily workflows. With this information, you can learn a lot about your current print practices. These insights allow you to make better decisions regarding your print environment and related costs.
Managed Print Essentials
By adjusting the way you think about and approach printing, Managed Print can have a vast impact (and improvement) on your company’s operations. While there are many details on how Managed Print works, the essentials include:
- Managed Print Provider: The trusted partner you work with
- Print Audit: Conducted by your provider to help understand who you are and what you’re doing, plus guide what you should be doing
