Three Things to Invest in Now for Long-Term Office Savings

January 29, 2020

Spending smarter can lead to improved productivity, higher efficiency and cost savings. Whether you’ve noticed your monthly bills going up or you’re undergoing an audit of office spending, it’s smart to reevaluate the investments that will benefit you in the long run.

Here are three things to invest in now for long-term office savings.

1. Technology

The savings might look appealing on a discounted copy machine or computer, but the unknown history could result in years of repair and maintenance costs. Hardware and software also continue to develop at a fairly constant pace, so making regular technology upgrades, at least once a year, can help your business remain competitive by ensuring you have the latest and best tools to perform daily tasks.

2. The right paper

Choosing quality paper can result in both time and cost savings. Over 21% of daily productivity loss can be attributed to document issues* – and paper jams are often caused by the paper, not the printer. Boise POLARIS®, Boise® ASPEN® and Boise® X-9® reams come with a 99.99% Jam-Free® Performance Guarantee, so you can be sure they will perform as expected, every time and limit the time wasted at the printer. 

3. Update lighting

Look into making the switch to LED light bulbs. They consume 80% less energy and have a longer lifespan than other light bulb options. Depending on daily use, one bulb can last for decades. While LEDs may generally cost more up front, in the long run, your energy savings can more than make up for the initial expense of making the switch. Another way to save? Motion-activated lights can help make sure these resources aren’t going to waste.
