Small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can save substantial amounts of cash by adopting greener approaches to their ink use.

This is the view of Alan McLeish, senior product marketing manager at Oki, who told Business Today that many devices spend a significant amount of time in the office without being used, meaning it is vital that they consume the minimum amount of energy possible.

Companies can lower their monthly bills by monitoring their printing, ensuring that printer ink is only used when it is necessary, rather than being wasted. Colour should be reserved for particularly important documents, with black ink used for others.

In order to help businesses to boost their sustainability, Oki is working on "Auto-Power Off" technology.

Mr McLeish explained to the news provider: "The setting automatically powers down the printer after extended periods of non-usage, which can be determined by the user and, this in turn, delivers big savings in power usage over the product’s life."
