There are many features that canon printers have that need to be set up properly. Once these features have been set up correctly they will save you money in a range of different ways. Some of these features are simply a change from default while others require the expertise of your Canon dealer.
- Default to duplex printing
One change to make is with the printing set up. It is best to change the setting from default to duplex printing. By doing this you can save 40% per month on your paper costs. This setting will have the printer print on both sides of the page instead of one.
- Default all prints to black
It is highly unlikely that you will always have to print in colour. By changing the default setting to print in black you can save money. If there is the need to print in colour then users simply choose that option.
- Set up ID modes to monitor usage by users
ID modes will allow you to see how much printer usage a person or department is going through. If a department that does not need to print is using the printer then you can go about stopping prohibited printing. This can save money on paper costs and ink.
- Set up fax divert to email
Fax divert to email is a great feature that saves your money. Many people will get faxes that do not actually have to be printed. By having the fax go to email you will not have to print faxes unnecessarily. This saves on paper, ink and time.
- Print to Mailboxes where available
If at all possible setting print to mailboxes is a great idea. This feature allows you to have secure printing that is password protected. This is great for any business where certain things are on a need to know basis.
- Set up auto print delete on mailboxes where available
This setting saves a lot of money as any printing job that is in the mailboxes will automatically be deleted after 12 hours. This means that if someone realises that they don’t need to print you haven’t wasted paper and ink.
- Set up RUI’s on all users machines
RUI or remote user interface means that you will save time one your employees having to check the availability of the printer.
- Set up Canon eMaintenance
This feature comes with all standard Canon software. The Canon team is allowed to monitor your printer 24/7 and will be notified if there is a problem saving you time in having to call for maintenance.
