Most of us hear the words “audit” and conjure up unpleasant images of the IRS. Fortunately, a print audit is nothing like that.
A print audit is a valuable tool for understanding all the print purchasing that your company does each year. That’s essential for building and implementing a method that will streamline your print ordering going forward.
At DPI Printing, we want to help you maximize your time and money by making your print ordering process more efficient and keeping costs down.
There are 3 main reasons print purchasing tends to spin out of control:
- Multiple people purchase printing in most companies, so the total amount of money spent often goes unnoticed.
- Employees tend to purchase printing on a random, as needed, or emergency basis which furthers the misperception that not much is being spent, because each individual print job may not be that expensive.
- Many companies utilize multiple print providers, which spreads out the amount they spend on printing. It is too easy for the total amount spent on printing to slip under the radar.
Only by a taking a total view of all print related projects can you know if waste is occurring in your print purchasing.
Organizing a print audit may appear to be a daunting task, but it’s really not. Utilizing a step by step checklist method and our Print Audit Form you can organize the information you need in a short amount of time.
