Sharp, who acquired Stockport based Midshire 2019, provide a host B2B products including offering a full suite of multi-function printers, Visual Solutions and ECR/EPoS systems, have extended their offering to include a waste, time and cost saving print management solution.
On average, an office employee consumes 10,000 sheets of paper annually and, with more than three-quarters of those ending as waste, environmental footprints and waste costs could skyrocket.
Sharp, who are acutely environmentally aware and strive to reduce their own carbon emissions and environmental impact, have developed a solution that reduces cost and waste by monitoring and managing the use of print fleet through PaperCut Hive.
Stockport based UK Sales Director Nick Rose explains:
“We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously at Sharp. From product design to manufacturing to packaging to energy consumption and right through to end-of-life product disposal, we do everything we can to reduce waste and conserve resources.
“PaperCut Hive enables us to help our customers become more cost efficient as well as reducing their impact on the environment.”
Sharp’s new secure print management software protects data. It sits in the cloud and integrates with print machines to give businesses complete control of photocopiers, printers, and multifunction devices eliminating the need for expensive on-site print servers. By monitoring print jobs as they pass into a print queue, job data can be presented to track usage and implement positive changes to your business.
Sharps latest solution comes with an array of eco-friendly features to reduce impact on the environment through a more sustainable print process including optional touchscreen prompts to remind staff to print double-sided, or black and white instead of colour.
With the ability to report, monitor and set limits for different users and departments across your business Papercut Hive provides businesses with control over expenditure on print.
