A successful company is built on good decisions. A lot of those decisions have to do with paper and ink--and one of the biggest decisions that any company has to make is how to organize its fleet of printers and copiers. Although the focus is mostly on printers, copiers deserve attention too; after all, in order for a copier to be beneficial to workflow, we first must decide between color copies or black and white copies.

Every company has thousands of moving parts. The success of the company is wholly reliant on how these moving parts work together and complement one another--so it's important to keep the "machine" well-oiled. For example, employees have to be cooperating, communicating, and collaborating both efficiently and reliably. Information has to flow smoothly from Point A to Point B, and sometimes even from Point A to Point Z. Clients have to be respected and appreciated, not simply tolerated.
