IT to the Rescue: Unexpected Ways CIOS Can Help Improve Productivity and Reduce Costs
A recent survey conducted for Brother International by Clarus Research Group shows that poor allocation of centralized business devices can help drain corporate profits. Compared with offices that have a greater number of shared printers, employees at offices with centralized copier/printers spend, on average, an additional three minutes each day on printing. Over the course of a year, this could mean an extra 13 hours spent at the printer. For a business of 500 employees, this could translate to 6,500 wasted hours. That’s a potential productivity loss of $336 million for U.S. businesses annually – and it’s happening right under the CIO’s nose.
