Businesses prepared for the “next normal” are ready for an uncertain future. They are focused in three key areas. Keep reading to see how you can prepare.

Digitization

Workflow Automation

Is your staff wasting time on repetitive, manual steps that office software and equipment can automate? According to McKinsey’s research, businesses that thrived during the pandemic and are prepared for the next normal invested in workflow automation during the pandemic. They are already seeing the productivity benefits and will have a competitive advantage in the next normal. Plus, that investment actually saves them money. Businesses who have used our free analysis are saving 15 to 30% on costs.

You can automate multi-step processes like:

  • Document formatting
  • Compliance
  • Document creation
  • Data distribution

Cost & Usage Tracking

Gartner Group research found that, if you aren’t tracking costs like printing and document management, you are likely underestimating them by 30 to 40%. You can track those costs with digitization. Then save money by reducing unnecessary consumption, better budgeting, and doing planned maintenance instead of more costly repairs. This adds up quickly! An average of 1-3% of revenue goes to printing costs alone while a staggering 5-15% goes to document management.*

Flexibility

At some point we’ll all be free to return to the office, but what will that look like? Is your team going to do part time remote and part time in the office? Do you need to downsize or upsize your spaces? You can prepare with a flexible plan that accommodates these possibilities. It should include those options and an equipment services contract that accommodates changes. Our analysis helps you determine if your plan is flexible enough for the future and offers options to get that flexibility. Even if you’re in a long term contract, you likely have options you don’t know about!

Cost Savings

Here’s the big one on everyone’s minds. Businesses who weathered the pandemic and who are prepared to thrive in the next normal are cutting out waste and saving money. If you haven’t audited your costs yet, this is the time to do it. With our recommendations, you can save 15 to 30% on costs alone, not to mention the productivity gains and better budgeting data. That includes a reduction in hardware costs of 15 to 60% if you have outdated equipment, retail equipment, or no managed equipment service at all.

Sustainability

Consumers, investors, and even governments are talking sustainability. And the numbers are starting to show that sustainability is good for business, too! In its 2021 Global Outlook, BlackRock said that it expects the shift to sustainability will “help enhance returns” for companies. IDC Research found that you can reduce your energy consumption by 30% and toner consumption by 20% with proper maintenance and replacing aging equipment. How’s that for going green and saving money?
