Reduce Print Costs: How Dallas Laser Printers can reduce print costs while increasing reliability and efficiency.

Reduce Print Costs:   In-house printing can be a source of great convenience and efficiency for any office.  But it can also be a source of hidden costs.  By exposing and minimizing those costs we can help any company reduce their expenses while ensuring that convenience and control. 

The obvious cost centers for in-house printing are:

1. Equipment
2. Toner or Ink
3. Repair / Maintenance

The less obvious areas are:

4. IT Labor costs, in diagnosis and repair
5. Work-Flow Inefficiency and Morale
6. Poor Presentation to customers/clients

Here is an example using only the three obvious costs.

 

Traditional Box-Store or via OEM purchase:

Network Installation:  1hr at salary rate: $26.28 (54,680 Median Salary for IT Staff in DFW)

That is a cost of $1075.56 before the printer ever produces a page.

Now we look at how Dallas Laser Printers can Reduce Print Costs using the same printer's Cost of Ownership over a typical 8 year printer life cycle.

Traditional Box-Store or via OEM purchase:    1.94 cents per printed page

A CE390X Toner Cartridge OEM from HP is around $233.99 (291.99 with 20% Corporate Discount) with a yield of 24,000 pages.  This generates a cost of .97 cents per print.  To this we add the paper cost of .8 cents a print.  This leaves us a cost per print of 1.77 cents a print.  But for a true cost of ownership we need to look at the maintenance costs as well.  The recommended Monthly Duty Cycle for this printer is 3000 to 15000 prints.  Lets assume a average monthly volume of 6500 pages.  Over the 8 year life cycle the printer will generate 624,000 prints.  Preventative Maintenance on this printer is required every 225,000 pages or almost 3 times. for this time period.  The msrp of the CF064a is $324.99, or $974.97 over the life of the printer.  Each maintenance will require 1hr of IT time to perform for an additional $78.84.  This adds another .17 cents per print.

Keep in mind this scenario assumes no downtime or out of warranty repair costs.  OEM toner and Preventative Maintenance kits are warrantied for 90 days and no labor is covered.  Dallas Laser Printers' toner carries a 1 YEAR warranty and our Preventative Maintenance Kits are warrantied for 6 months.  ALL LABOR IS COVERED.

Dallas Laser Printers purchase:    1.61 cents per printed page

A CE390X Toner Cartridge Compatible from DLP is 165.00 (194.25  minus Corporate Discount) with a yield of 24,000 pages.  This generates a cost of .69 cents per print.  To this we add the paper cost of .8 cents a print.  This leaves us a cost per print of 1.49 cents a print.  But for a true cost of ownership we need to look at the maintenance costs as well.  The recommended Monthly Duty Cycle for this printer is 3000 to 15000 prints.  Lets assume a average monthly volume of 6500 pages.  Over the 8 year life cycle the printer will generate 624,000 prints.  Preventative Maintenance on this printer is required every 225,000 pages or almost 3 times. for this time period.  At Dallas Laser Printers the cost of the CF064a is $210.00, or $630.00 over the life of the printer.  Each maintenance will require 1/2 hr service time to perform for an additional $132.  This adds another .12 cents per print.

And finally we calculate the Complete Cost of Ownership: 

Traditional Box-Store or via OEM purchase:  $13,181.16

Dallas Laser Printers purchase:  $10,696.40
 

That is a savings of $2,484.76 on just one printer.  Imagine the savings if we did this for every printer in your office!   Call Today! 972-423-1115
