Who says two devices are better than one? Streamlining has become a major theme in Canadian businesses, from streamlining processes to reorganizing departments for efficiencies. One way Canadian businesses have found streamlining success is in consolidating devices. Here are a few ways to cut down on office products and gadgets and improve device management:
• Consolidate printers, scanners and fax machines. All of these devices can be combined in a single multifunction device, which saves your business money on maintenance, toner supplies and paper. In addition, one MFP will take up significantly less space than several single function devices which is important for small businesses with limited space.
• Equip road warriors with smartphones that can access the Internet and allow mobile workers to get the job done no matter where they are. By combining a phone with a PDA, mobile workers no longer need to juggle multiple devices while on the go.
• Invest in a quality camera with video capabilities, or in a video camera that takes great still shots. An all-in-one option will keep the bulk down when taking your camera out of the office and keep the learning curve low.
