Printers, Faxes, and Copiers – Oh My!
ITS completed a pilot inventory in two colleges and one administrative department of the age, models, manufacturer, use, and maintenance of all printers, faxes and copiers. The result of the inventory indicates that URI could save hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, improve security, and increase functionality if the acquisition, distribution, and management of these devices were better planned and administered. The results of the pilot were sufficiently revealing to warrant further discussion on the value of developing a policy and an RFP to acquire and manage these devices more cost effectively.
Look for additional updates on this initiative during the year.
