What’s the true cost of ‘pence per copy’ printer contracts?

Business printer maintenance specialists NCM have launched a national campaign to make Facilities Managers aware of the true costs of ‘pence per click’ meter contracts for multi-function printers and copiers.

NCM Business Development Manager, Mick Leyland, says, “Around two-thirds of printers are scrapped after only 3 years, when, in reality, the printer has many more years of useful service ahead of it. Not only is this practice wasteful and unnecessary – it’s also expensive when you add up the total cost of ownership over the contract period – and that’s not mentioning the environmental impact of replacing equipment every three years and how many perfectly good printers end up in landfill.”

NCM can maximise ROI for Facilities Managers by extending the life of their existing printer fleet – offering maintenance and repair contracts on existing assets though their nationwide network of service engineers managed by a Midlands-based call centre.

Mick continues, “Many larger organisations can also find it a challenge to keep track of their assets. As specialists in networked print solutions, we can carry out an audit of printer assets – from high volume multifunction printers to hand-held label printers – and everything in between, to support the Facilities Manager whatever the size of the organisation.”
