New Printing Technology Can Improve Energy Efficiency
Businesses who use modern printers and longer lasting ink cartridges can improve their energy efficiency, new research has shown.A study by printer and ink cartridge manufacturer Canon revealed that many organisations within Europe are unaware how they could make energy savings.
The research showed that 19 per cent of businesses had seen no change in their energy savings over the last year while a further 45 said they had only noticed a five per cent saving on their bills.
Adam Gillbe, European strategic marketing manager at Canon Europe Business Solution, said: "We're not talking about a complete overhaul of systems but rather encouraging organisations to really think about the way any new technology investments support their organisation and their staff."He suggested organisations use multi-functional devices such as Canon's own Imagerunner Advance, which have been designed specifically for use in a digital office environment.
From the 1,800 business leaders questioned, 59 per cent said that their main aims for the future are to boost staff productivity and efficiency.
