Things to consider:
- Monthly duty cycle
- Cost per page
- Print speed
- Colour or not
- Page yield of cartridges
A simple practical example:
Your office has an estimated monthly printing cycle of 4500 black and white copies per month and 500 colour ones.
Without a printing contract:
The price for consumables could be calculated with approximate values as follows: €45 per cartridge with a yield of 1500 copies therefore, 45/1500 = €0.03 for black. For white it would be 3 (magenta, cyan, yellow) x 30 with a yield of 800 copies. Accordingly, 90/800= € 0.1125. To sum up, their current monthly printing cost is: (3000 x .03) + (250 x 0.1125) = 236.25 x 12 months = €2835
With a printing contract:
Having in mind the printing volume of the office, one of the recommended multifunction machines would be HP Page-wide Μ477dw. This machine can be provided at a cost of €10/ 1000 black copied and €75/ colour. Therefore, (4500 x 0.01) + ( 500 x 0.075 ) = €82.5 x 12 months = € 990
Yearly, there is a total saving of €1845 or otherwise a reduction of 65%.
