The education industry on the Sunshine Coast is one of the most paper and photocopy reliant. Between printing student documents and administrative paperwork, it will continue to consume a considerable amount of paper into the foreseeable future.
For tertiary education IT Decision Makers (ITDMs), this means it is critical to choose a reliable printer that can meet your institution’s printing needs while also improving staff and student productivity. And as printers are projected to take up to 7% of IT hardware budgets in 2020, it is worth exploring how to choose the best and most cost-effective Sunshine Coast printer for your institution.
Following the paper trail in education
If you’re a decision maker at a university, TAFE or registered training organisation, you probably face a diverse range of needs from many stakeholders. Here are some of the most important considerations when choosing a new heavy-duty printer:
As an ITDM, you have more important things to do than manage printer breakdowns or fix printer jams. Working with peace of mind means working with a printer that can reliably print thousands of documents without breaking a sweat.
An underperforming printer will lead to frustrated educators unable to print tests, or snaking lines of students waiting to print notes. A durable printer which can quickly print high volumes will prevent many of these worse case scenarios, and avoid bringing negative attention to IT.
