We don’t give a second thought to securing our valuables, but for some reason when we leave our documents vulnerable we don’t think twice. Events in recent years are proving that data can always be more tightly secured it’s essential to put protecting your records at the top of your to-do list.
Document System’s ongoing dedication to education is why we are proud to be a part of U.S. Communities. As part of this program, we offer Ricoh multifunction printers (MFPs) that facilitate enhanced document handling in schools and throughout the education industry. Here’s a peek at how Ricoh devices help out schools.
If you have a multifunction copier, also known as multifunction printers or MFPs, you have a real workhorse in your office. Are you making the most of it?
The MFP has a ton of potential beyond the basics – faxing, scanning, copying, and printing – but you have to know what it can do in order to use it. Let’s take a look at this versatile machine and some of the things you might not know it can do.
While a lot of the focus on scanning has to do with paperless practices, the reality is that many businesses are not able to go completely or even mostly paperless. However, there are still plenty of opportunities to harness the power of scanning, particularly if you view it as an addition to print.
As you are planning out your goals and plans for the new year, add one more item to the list: Getting your print environment under control. And don’t worry, it’s an easy one to check off your list thanks to Managed Print.
The core of Document Systems' commitment to the Education industry is our partnership with U.S. Communities. Here's an update on what's happening in the organization.
Amazon Business now has a multi-year contract with U.S. Communities, meaning participants in the cooperative can take advantage of online pricing in a number of categories. Some of the Amazon Business online categories available to schools, districts, and other institutions include:
When you’re in the market for a new copier, you’re confronted with a range of options. Some include:

Here are a couple of questions for you:
- Are you scanning documents correctly?
- Are you using scanning to enhance your business?
If you answered “No” or “Maybe” to either of these questions, it’s time to take a closer look at your scanner.
Utilizing Your Scanner
Scanning is a pretty incredible thing. You can take any documents and convert them to digital formats. Scanners let you choose the file type and location, so you can edit, share, and archive them as needed.
When you take the time to look at how much businesses spend on print and print-related expenses, some of the numbers are staggering. For example, some estimates put the amount companies spend on printing at around 15% of their budget! It's that problem that prompts many to adopt a Managed Print Service. But managed print does more than just reduce the amount of money going to paper and print supplies. It also helps create a more effective, more productive print environment.
Our partnership with U.S. Communities Government Purchasing alliance is something we’re proud of. As we’ve said in previous posts, this partnership helps us work with educators to offer affordable and efficient solutions.
Today we want to talk about how to use this program if you are in the education industry.
