- Each model number (made worse if you have multiple manufacturers) means different supplies for each device.
- Are all these supplies purchased from one source or is there even a toner purchasing strategy or plan in place?
- By reducing model numbers you increase users' comfort levels, they become familiar with how to quickly print exactly what they need, learn how to replace toner and clear any paper jams.
- If you are buying a number of different supplies for each device, toner etc., how do you negotiate bulk rates for these supplies?
- Different devices, especially from varying manufacturers often means different print drivers; this is difficult for users to adjust to when their first choice printer is not available.
- Supplies become redundant if a device is replaced: using standard devices makes it easy to utilize just in time toner replacement.
- Cost variance–each model has varying costs to print associated with it; how do you know if a printer is best suited to each department or workload?
- I.T. workload is high, a confused fleet generates more service calls and tickets to I.T. for support, the time spent clearing these tickets is longer and therefore costly.
