With all of the demands placed on today's IT departments, reducing the cost of the output fleet (printers, scanners, fax machines, copiers and multi-function peripherals (MFPs)) is not at the top of the list of priorities for most department managers. We think this is a mistake.

For most companies, the output fleet represents a significant annual expenditure (5% of the average IT budget and between 1-3% of company revenue) and, more importantly, a significant opportunity for savings. The average output fleet presents a low-hanging opportunity for most IT departments to realize savings of 20-30% that directly impact the bottom line.
