This Feature Will Help You Save Supplies When Printing

Nothing is more frustrating than printing off dozens of copies of a large document, only to look at the first one and realize something got cut off on the first page. Especially with the present focus on sustainability and being environmentally conscious, it’s frustrating to have to throw all those misprinted copies in the trash.

With the Sample Set feature, available on Xerox printers, you can choose to print a sample set first. This was print only one set of the documents, so you can check to make sure everything printed correctly before printing the remaining copies. Not only is this better for the environment, but it will save you loads of time.

3 Reasons This Digital Press is a Game-Changer

The Xerox Iridesse digital press is a groundbreaking piece of equipment that makes life easier and more creative for designers and print professionals. Here are three factors causing many people in the print world to talk about it.

1. Two Incredible Technologies Combined

The Xerox Iridesse has a six-color system which combines traditional and specialty inks on a single press. That alone is an innovation in digital printing, but the Iridesse also offers Metallic Dry Inks that retain so much resolution, they are actually a suitable substitute for foil stamping.

2. Embellishments, Including Metallics

Using the Metallic Dry Inks, print professionals can pull incredibly sharp images from tricky elements like gradients and thinner fonts. The Xerox Iridesse can also create these elements, making it easy to add metallic or iridescent textures to flat prints.

Small Businesses and Their Economic Significance

Small Businesses and Their Economic Significance

Since 1993, the US Small Business Administration (SBA) has promoted National Small Business Week to honor up and coming small businesses and entrepreneurs that play a critical role in the economy, both nationally and for local communities. The event highlights some of the factors that make up the roles of small businesses, as well as the issues they face and the solutions they implement.

1. Contributions to the Nation’s Workforce

By the numbers, the value of small business makes itself apparent, both in terms of workers employed and production. The SBA projects that: Roughly 66% of Americans of working age are employed by or own a small business; Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees, altogether, contribute about 70% of the US’s gross domestic product (GDP)

The Importance of Cybersecurity for Small Businesses

The subject of computer security has existed for as long as computers and the internet have, but the field is always changing and costs of cybercrime continue to grow. Major corporations and government agencies seem like high-profile targets, but small businesses increasingly are the ones under attack. Understanding the risks and how to implement document security is critical for small business owners to protect themselves and their customers.

Maximizing Printer Functionality

Maximizing Printer Functionality

Modern-day printers are typically multifunction printers (MFPs) that are:

  • Able to print
  • Act as copiers
  • Scan
  • Fax
  • Email

They are interconnected devices most often networked to a business’s server and the internet, adding even more functionality and access across the span of brick-and- mortar locations as well as the mobile devices of the employees wherever they may be. As a business owner you should use your printers to the fullest by maximizing the utilization of all the available functions of your MFPs.

The Strong Connection Between MPS and Sustainability

The Strong Connection Between MPS and Sustainability

Profitability is often not the sole driving force behind successful businesses. Some of the most thriving businesses combine financial results with making positive social changes and emphasizing environmental sustainability in their business practices. Managed print services, or MPS, is one business process that can be an important focus when making attempts to minimize resource usage and expand recycling efforts

How Does MPS Improve Resource Usage?

Focusing on MPS has the potential to impact a company’s resource usage in several ways. Lower printing quantities naturally decrease the use of paper and ink. In addition to cutting direct costs, many companies have found the following benefits:

Managing Documents

Managing Documents

With a modern work environment in which not all employees are on-site, you might need a new process for document management. You, your business and your employees will all do well by learning a new way to take care of such paperwork as payments, receipts, contracts, claims and business forms.

Work Mobile, Print Mobile

Just as your employees might be mobile, so too can be their printing capabilities. New apps make electronic document management efficient for employees as well as your IT team. While these new apps are designed to make managing documents easier, you’ll want to do your research to see which of them have the best reputation and are the best fit for your business.

6 Things to Know About the Future of Cybersecurity

6 Things to Know About the Future of Cybersecurity

The future of cybersecurity means more than defending the network from outside cyberattacks that originate overseas from experts dealing on the dark web. It includes every employee and local access point to valuable data, such as email, copier and printer security.

Planning and Preparation

A comprehensive security program begins with planning and preparation. Internal threats can be equally dangerous as those from outside the network. Seemingly harmless access points and unsuspecting team members make defenses vulnerable. Consider these six steps when preparing for future cyberattacks.

  • Identify all valuable data assets. Comprehensive data and document security covers electronic and physical sources of information.

High Efficiency, Tech Empowerment Keeps Service Quality High at The Office Advantage

When you do business in a large, sparsely populated geographic area, service-call eciency takes on a much higher level of importance. No one—whether management or the service techs—wants a second 300-mile round-trip service call, just because the right part wasn’t on the truck the first time.

The Office Advantage does business in just that kind of area. Based in the small town of Mitchell, South Dakota (population 17,000), this Xerox dealer serves a wide area that includes eastern South Dakota, southwest Minnesota, northwest Iowa, and northeast Nebraska. That represents a radius of about 200 miles from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where The Oce Advantage opened an oce in 2005.

Managing Document Security in the Face of Digital Threats

With technology attacks and network threats growing more and more sophisticated, achieving effective data security measures is an increasingly difficult challenge. Maintaining security is pivotal to gaining and keeping customer trust, particularly when data and document security breaches impact customer data. With the advancement of new threats, however, also comes the advancement of new threat prevention technologies.

What Are the Best Methods for Data Security?

Technological evolution has led to an increasing number of options to leverage software and physical security means to increase data and document security. Those methods include:
