Are you wasting money whilst you sleep?

MPC4502We all know that Televisions use a lot of energy in ‘stand-by’; but did you know that the same is also true for some of the leading brands of photocopiers and printers?

Copiers and printers in most offices are estimated to be in ‘sleep mode’ for more than 60% of the working day.  Given that they are still consuming electricity, this could be costing your company a lot of money in wasted energy as well as increasing your carbon footprint.

With more energy price hikes on the way, it makes good business sense to look for energy efficiencies from all your business machines.

Recently launched and now available from Allied Office Machines, are two new Multi-Functional Printers (MFPs) from Ricoh, which are setting new records for energy efficiency.  With average power consumption figures in sleep mode, over 90% more efficient* than their direct competitors they are definite green medal contenders.  But these startling performances do not just end there, with comparisons showing the new Ricoh MFPs to be over 30% more efficient* than their competitors in ‘ready’ and ‘in-use’ modes as well.

Over the period of a year these efficiencies can add up to a considerable saving, especially with further energy price increases on the horizon.

To help companies better understand how they can use modern, energy efficient MFP’s like these to reduce their energy consumption, Allied Office Machines offers its respected Print Audit service, which provides an accurate and detailed report on all aspects of your printing and copying.  It can show you how to make you assets more energy and cost efficient as well as detailing all the associated energy costs, showing you where potential savings can be made.
