Optimizing for Performance.

What Makes Workflow Solutions Environmentally Friendly?

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Oct 16, 2018 1:00:00 PM

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.

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.

How to Improve Operational Efficiency with Help from Zeno Solutions

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Oct 2, 2018 10:00:00 AM

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.

The Advantages of Having Secure Printers & Copiers in Your Office

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Sep 20, 2018 10:00:00 AM

There are countless threats to the security of your businesses network and data. Workers often focus on computers and smartphones that they often overlook other important pieces of equipment that hackers could use to damage or steal your information: printers and copiers.

Much like a laptop, smartphone, or tablet, printers and copiers are devices that communicate through your network. Obviously, this is very convenient because users can print from anywhere in the office using almost any network connected device. However, if printer or copier security is lacking then that convenience may come at a large cost.

How can businesses ensure that their network is secure while also ensuring that users do not experience unnecessary bottlenecks or complications as they try to use the equipment? In this article, we will examine network printer security best practices and the advantages of having secure printers and copiers in your office.

How Will Xerox Global Print Drivers Simplify Workflows and Make Life Easier for Users?

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Aug 28, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Until recently, deploying and managing print devices on a corporate network was tough work. Not only do different printers use different drivers, but device-specific drivers can't respond to the needs of users in a unified, coherent way.

In a traditional print driver network, every single device has its own driver. The diverse output requirements and individual capabilities mean that every device in the print fleet essentially needs to be taken out of context for any meaningful update or administrative work to occur.

Some devices connect directly to the corporate network. Others connect via USB to employee workstations. What works with one device may not work with another. This may be enough for an enterprise to manage its day-to-day workflows, but what happens when you want to migrate to a new technology platform?

Which New Features of the New Xerox Iridesse Production Printer Do I Need to Know About?

Posted by Zeno Office Solutions on Aug 20, 2018 11:40:00 AM

Xerox is a well-known leader in the world of production print. So how does the company's latest printer, the Iridesse, compare to its longstanding top-shelf products like the iGen and Versant-series printing presses?

It turns out there are quite a few features that serve to make the Iridesse stand out. Perhaps the most important is the feature that gives the device its name: single-pass iridescent printing.

The Iridesse combines Xerox's bright and vivid four-color CMYK printing capabilities with space for two additional dry inks on a single pass. This means that its users can enjoy full-color printing and iridescent gold and silver printing in a single pass. A recent study showed that print buyers are willing to pay a premium of 24% to 89% for specialized printing over CMYK only. Also, digital print enhancement volume is expected to reach 25 billion pages by 2020 – that’s over twice as many CMYK pages.
