Pressure On To Reduce And Control Office Print Costs As SMBs Bring More Print Tasks In-house

In addition, it may make better economic sense to purchase an A3 rather than an A4 colour device, as this will enable the business to produce a wider range of brochures and other marketing materials in-house.  These can also be produced and amended as necessary, enabling the business to be more proactive in responding quickly to changing customer and market demands.

"It is not surprising therefore that A3 sales to SMBs out-performed the market, with volume sales up by eight per cent in 2011 and set to continue this growth over the coming year," says Laidlaw.  "Not only are smaller businesses using A3 to print high-quality banners, posters, packaging mock-ups and direct mail, but they are also able to produce anything required in larger scale, such as spreadsheets or technical plans.  

"As the IDC SMB research shows, despite the rapid growth of sophisticated devices enabling us to view information electronically, there is still a huge demand to communicate messages and digest data on paper. However, for SMBs to take full advantage of this opportunity and improve their competitiveness in a continuing tough economy, it is essential that they realise the benefits of the latest print technologies like those offered by OKI Europe, providing cost-effective in-house printing without compromising on quality as well as keeping a tight control of all print output."
