Equipment manufacturers include a basic program used with multi-function devices that simply monitors volumes and includes toner replenishment. This achieves a small reduction in toner cost. At Omni, we dig much deeper into your business process to find more efficient ways to meet your document needs. Our process may include right sizing printer fleet or reallocation to meet lower cost and green initiatives. We also help you implement industry leading security and compliance measures to reduce risk and protect your data.

We work with you to simplify and replace your existing hardware.
Over time most organizations end up with multiple suppliers for their print hardware, software, servicing, and consumables. These varied platforms do not share a common reporting process and it is up to you to monitor all these different aspects of your operation. Omni can help you consolidate and monitor these processes using our thorough assessment program. Unaddressed, the results are an unwelcome consumption of time that would be better utilized on core business matters, high costs, and other unnecessary issues—such as the following:
- Mixed service levels
- Multiple contracts to manage, purchase orders to create, and invoices to pay
- Inconsistent review and measurement processes
- Inadequate or non-existent controls and visibility
- Varying management information
- Inefficient strategy and cost control
- Lack of single accountability
