A tremendous percentage of the workforce is mobile and the trend toward remote work is continuing to increase. In this new digital environment, the old nine-to-five approach is becoming obsolete. The world doesn’t stop and approval delays can make the difference between new business and lost business.
It’s never been more important to provide systems for remote access to documents and to digitally capture and store new documents as they’re created. It’s imperative that remote employees have access to Business Process workflows in order to avoid delayed approvals and lost paper documents.

“Multifunction printers (MFPs) combine printers and color copiers to simplify the workplace. Along with printing and copying, these machines can fax and scan to locations such as email, USBs and cloud-based services. The more advanced models can be customized with finishing options like stapling, hole-punching and sorting. These MFPs are designed to meet business printing needs while cutting supply costs and increasing workflow. They can be purchased or leased, and an array of accessories is available for most models.”

What could you do if you were a manager that had no expertise in IT or cybersecurity?
“Something that you can do is simply have different discussions with the cybersecurity people that you already have. Start the conversation with the concerns you have as a non-technical business manager in terms of what could go wrong. Ask to be told about the systems that support this activity. Ask about cyber attacks that would be able to compromise the systems supporting your business and the potential impact.
“Whether you are embarking on a new venture or you have an established business, risk management is essential to ensure the long-term viability of your enterprise.
As part of your overall plan, risk management must be included in order to understand the potential risks your business might/will eventually face. When you understand what the risks are, you give your business the best chance to succeed.”
A threat which has become a persistent problem in today’s digital world is cyber risk. No matter how small your digital presence is, you have to implement a robust security protocol with strict governance for your organization. This not only protects the data of your company but that of your customers.”
We’d love to show you how our products, software and services can help you minimize potential risks in your business.
“What are the three or four specific and measurable activities that you are measuring every day, week, and month that drive your top line growth?
If you are clear on where you want your company to go, you’d have the steps in place that will get you there. Go back to your Crystal Ball.

Once you have that big vision locked in, write down the measurable, actionable steps you took that led to that result. Bring that list to your leadership team tomorrow and get cracking.”

At Premier Business Products we’re asking the hard questions so that the services we provide are aligned with needs of customers. Our staff is knowledgeable about our products and we take accountability for the quality of care we provide long after a sale.
“We are experiencing a period of rapid changes that are combining to disrupt conventional work practices as the conversion to a digital workplace occurs. This is particularly so within the office environment where there are a number of significant trends affecting the way we are starting to operate.
-The increased use of software for automation -A transition away from purchasing via individual transactions to bundled services -Reduced print volumes -Increasingly mobile workforce -Leveraging connectivity and the internet of things -Smart phones along with the 24/7 access to business information they enable
These trends are combining to transform the workplace, a transformation that is reducing costs and improving efficiency. Businesses that leverage these efficiencies start to build competitive advantages because they have lower costs, and because they have access to actionable business intelligence which enables them to make faster and better decisions.”
“Because of the performance differences, consumers have become conditioned to think ink equals SOHO and laser equals business but, over the last five years or so, these differences have been mostly eliminated. This means, if consumers can separate the way they’ve been conditioned to think and set aside the stigma traditionally associated with ink in a business environment, then the decision between an ink-based platform and a laser-based platform can be made based on the total cost of ownership (TCO) rather than historical performance differences.”

Thank you for coming over yesterday, getting us set up and providing lunch. The Billing Ladies were VERY happy, which makes everyone else happy.
FYI – Having a copier with separate output trays for everyone is the best thing since sliced bread. We also love that the copier can detect colored originals and automatically print them in color without having to program the machine. This has already been a life saver because people typically forget to reset the settings when they finish.
