Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Nov 30, 2018 10:00:00 AM

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.

Why Should Colleges & Universities Choose Managed Print Services?

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Nov 21, 2018 11:00:25 AM

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.

How Can Workflow Solutions Improve Legal Services?

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Oct 23, 2018 10:00:00 AM

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.

What are the Tangible Cost Savings of Workflow Solutions?

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Oct 10, 2018 1:00:00 PM

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.
