What is the best time of year to buy office equipment? Often, the fourth quarter or end of the year is the best time to purchase new equipment. The end of the year is a time when departments try to get the most out of their budgets, save on taxes, and upgrade aging infrastructure.
With Section 179 for 2018, businesses can get tax deductions for the purchasing of property, vehicles, and office equipment. These tax deductions for businesses can be a big boon for companies looking to upgrade systems, such as switching from a traditional networked printer environment to cloud-based printing.

Cybersecurity is a hot topic as more people become aware of the lengths hackers will go through to steal sensitive data. In fact, over 1 million new exploits are released each day.
More connected devices enter the workplace, and this increases the number of potential entry points for hackers. Printers and other connected devices are increasingly becoming hacker targets as they search for weak points within a network.
Until recently, not many companies thought about buying a secure network printer when making upgrades to their existing printing infrastructure. The threat was simply not on the radar. Luckily, Xerox has been working on security solutions for their products to ensure that businesses can feel confident when deploying a Xerox Workgroup Devices in their office.

College and university campuses are often large, with several different buildings, departments, and faculties all working under the larger umbrella of the institution. With the many activities that occur on a campus throughout a day, week, or school year, there is a lot of printing that needs to be done.
However, a printer needs to be more than a printer these days. In addition to paper documents, staff and faculty must manage digital documents, workflows, and more. All of this can become very time-consuming and, as these tasks add up, it means less time for other activities and reduced productivity.
Managed print services for colleges and universities are designed to ensure departments have the right devices to deliver better service more efficiently. Xerox Workgroup Printers can be a key part of an effective managed print solution for higher education.
Print 18 was the latest annual installment of the popular imaging convention where manufacturers and creators come together to share and exchange ideas. For over 50 years, this event has been an opportunity to see and experience the latest innovations in the print and design industries.

At Print 18, Xerox wowed visitors to their display on the convention floor as they showed off new Xerox innovations and technology to help production print professionals deliver their best work ever. Here are some of what Xerox brought to Print 18 that captured our attention.
Workflows at law offices aren’t always simple, and they rarely follow a predictable path. Both lawyers and their paralegal and clerical support have to be able to access clear, concise data, and navigate complex client needs in order to generate value for their clients.
Under these conditions, establishing efficient workflows is challenging work. In order to properly advise clients and represent their interests in legal cases, legal firms need to adhere to strict regulations while responding to the demands of their environment.
In the end, lawyers often end up accruing a time-debt of non-billable hours that account for a broad range of high-volume, low-impact administrative work. This work can be anything from searching for a particular document to waiting for an approval or even hiring new employees.
Waste is a major detriment to quality of life worldwide. The World Bank estimates that consumers will generate 2.2 billion tons of waste per year by 2025.
But waste isn’t only a consumer problem. Waste is a manufacturer problem. It is a distributor problem. Waste is a problem for everyone, and organizations across the world are beginning to look for ways to reduce waste throughout the product lifecycle.
Conventionally-minded business analysts have long believed that companies have no commercial incentive to lengthen the life cycles of products because this would reduce their revenues, but this isn’t true. Changing cultural attitudes towards sustainability are turning sustainable business practices into opportunities to generate value. These benefits are not unique to big-name manufacturers like Lego, who has promised to exclusively use sustainable materials by 2030. It can be a major value driver for any business, in any industry.
Every business is defined by its workflows. Once you take out the branding, marketing, and other peripheral value generators from the equation, you’re left with a series of processes that generate value for customers.
Optimizing these workflows can be a powerful strategy for increasing the value that you can offer customers. Since process inefficiency can cost organizations between 20% and 30% of their total annual revenue, workflow solutions that reduce inefficiency can save up to that amount.
But that is just the beginning. Workflow solutions can also become key value drivers that do more than simply cover for inefficiencies. They can become a solid basis for scalable growth without massive infrastructure investment.
Automation. Communication. Analysis. Every business wants to improve the efficiency of its processes in these key areas. But executives don’t always agree on the best way of doing so. Differences in the way various business models produce value can make operational efficiency seem like a distant dream. Companies can’t simply take the tools that work for their competition and implement them in their own organization – there are no one-size-fits-all solutions for operational efficiency.
Even if that were possible, it would set a limit to how efficient any business can become. The fact that every organization works in its own unique way presents opportunities for companies to outperform their competitors by offering faster, leaner, and more comprehensive solutions to customers.
