Managed Print Services

Today’s busy office requires peak efficiency in every area, especially in its network of printers.  With toner often comprising up to 15% of an office’s yearly budget, Managed Print Services (MPS) from EON can offer an easy solution to keeping your fleet of printers running smoothly at the lowest cost- leaving your office free to focus on business.

 

The goal of MPS is to monitor every aspect of your printing network from toner usage to network security. With the power of that knowledge we can lower your printing costs, increase productivity, prevent downtime for repairs, and optimize the operation of your fleet of printers.

How does MPS work? Every office is different, and we provide tailored solutions for every business wishing to streamline their printing network. Generally, specialized software is installed for every printer to analyze use and output cost. That information is used to restructure the network of printers for peak performance. We also monitor toner levels to replenish supplies when they are low as well as providing repair and IT services to quickly resolve printing problems.

To see how Managed Print Services might benefit your business, contact EON and we will discuss the options that are right for you. As a one-stop-shop for every office we can work with different brands and configurations for the best results in every office.

EON helps offices stay environmentally friendly with a large selection of green products and recycling programs.  “Greening” your office will not only help the environment, but potentially save money for you and your company. Here are some ideas for cutting down waste and saving energy in your office, as well as suggestions of eco-friendly products from EON.

BREAKROOM

Did you know that coffee is one of the most chemically treated and expensive to produce food products used in the US? Buying shade-grown coffee prevents tropical deforestation and choosing organic varieties will protect you from exposure to pesticides. A lot of coffee is grown where rainforest has been cut or burned- look for the green Rainforest Alliance Certified stamp on coffee products to be sure.

A little research goes a long way when it comes to making product choices. Companies like Keurig have a policy of social responsibility and their K-Cup packs that may seem wasteful at first glance can be recycled and their contents composted. They also adapt their packaging to have less environmental impact. Visit their social responsibility page to discover what Keurig is doing to cut down on waste and how you can help: http://www.keurig.com/social-responsibility.

When it comes to eating lunch, consider the amount of gas and waste packaging involved in getting takeout or leaving the office for lunch. Bringing lunch to work in reusable containers cuts down on waste and saves you money, and knowing what is in your food can help you make healthier choices. Especially in the case of beverages a reusable cup can cut down on the amount of Styrofoam and plastic that would enter landfills from disposable cups and bottles.

It is always best to buy food and beverages with the least amount of packaging possible. Try unwrapped candies in favor of individually packaged snacks. As with paper, keeping easily accessible and clearly labelled recycle bins for plastic and aluminum in the breakroom can cut down on the environmental impact of your office. Why not have a flip through our Green Catalog to give your break room a quick eco-makeover?

EON helps offices stay environmentally friendly with a large selection of green products and recycling programs.  “Greening” your office will not only help the environment, but potentially save money for you and your company. Here are some ideas for cutting down waste and saving energy in your office, as well as suggestions of eco-friendly products from EON.

OFFICE SUPPLIES & FURNITURE

Do you know about VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)? Many common office furnishings are made of pressed board, foam, or paint which contains VOCs- toxic compounds that are bad for the environment and potentially your health.  Make sure you buy green products from reputable vendors who can help you choose items that are SCS certified to protect your air quality. You can also find office décor and supplies made with high percentages of post-consumer content, which means those items are made from materials that would otherwise be in landfills.  Also, don’t forget about plants! They help clean the air and beautify your space as well as lifting your mood.

Disposable items like pens and tape dispensers take up space in landfills, so buy refillable versions and buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste. Just as you can promote recycling paper by keeping convenient recycling bins in the office, you can promote recycling of plastic by doing the same. Check regulations for your area before disposing of possibly toxic items such as ink cartridges and spent batteries- you may need to take these to a facility that will deal with this refuse safely.
