 Summary Analysis

Graph measures the number of agencies who have done the in-depth study of their printing efficiency.

  • Assessments have been completed for those agencies seeking them.  Remaining agencies must be convinced of the benefits.
  • Equipment providers actively marketing "free" print assessments.  Although typically biased, they have become the desired alternative for agencies with dwindling funds.
  • Several agencies previously interested, have now cited 'uncertainly of economy and agency future' as the reasons to not move forward at this time.

What is a Print Assessment?

46 agencies have completed a Print Assessment which is an in-depth study of their printing designed to help maximize efficiency.

 Key Action Item: 

  • Actively pursuing new programs to assess printing efficiency without requiring an initial outlay of funds.  We will continue to reach out to agencies who have not had Print Assessmsents.
