What Our Services Will Do For You
Spend much, much less and get more
There are literally hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars in savings on the table waiting to be claimed. And you can harvest these savings without investing in new hardware, software or additional head count. All infrastructure is provided by Optimizon and there is only nominal, up-front expense as our fees come out of the savings we capture for you.
Optimizon guarantees the savings we project. And if for some reason, we are unable to deliver the guaranteed 30% ROI (which has never happened), our fees will be reduced until we do. In short, you have nothing to lose.
Perhaps most important, these savings are not conditioned on your users doing more with less. Or giving up capabilities. Or dealing with rationed fleet resources. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Uptime and productivity actually increase because our right-sizing model gives users the capabilities and horsepower they need to do the job right. Our intensive, proactive management helps prevent breakdowns before they happen, further improving uptime.
Finally, Optimizon ensures your contracts have bulletproof provisions for enforcement of vendor responsibilities. If printer/copier/service providers don’t live up to the contracts, there are terms in place to ensure a quick and efficient remedy.
Procurement / Purchasing Managers
World-class online RFP process
Drastically cut the time you spend on research, vendor presentations, phone calls, emails and sifting through proposals. Optimizon’s online RFP process automates procurement tasks to slash the time you spend on copier and printer purchases. All vendor bids are centralized in one document that you access with a web browser.
Sort, analyze and compare bids with a few clicks of a mouse. For larger purchase contracts (e.g., 100 or more units), you can cut the entire purchase cycle by weeks or even months and save countless hours.
Best possible price and terms
The Optimizon competitive bidding process compels vendors to put their best offer forward so you get the optimum price every time. And with Optimizon’s expert help, you can further ensure that all service, support and maintenance terms are written in your favor (most “standard” contracts are weighted in the vendor’s favor).
A better way to work without changing the way you work
Does a department head want a comparison between two machines he’s considering? No problem. With a few clicks of the mouse, you can pull together and print a detailed report. New machines introduced after the bid has been awarded? Not an issue. Vendors simply update their contract with costs, speeds and feeds, duty cycles, etc. of the new products so that current information is always at your fingertips. And this “living” Optimizon RFP process can support any approved vendor list or
state purchase contract requirements, so you don’t have to change how you work.
IT / IS Managers
Focus on higher value IT projects, not daily printer/copier
All too often, immediate demands and daily emergencies interrupt higher-value IT work. But it doesn’t have to. You can offload print management and printer lease management onto Optimizon and focus on strategic, important projects. Imagine being relieved of a multitude of print responsibilities, like evaluating the constantly changing parade of hardware solutions. Or analyzing the service offerings of five different vendors. Optimizon does all this and more to provide welcome relief for
overworked IT staffs.
Optimizon ensures compatibility and standardization
Optimizon makes sure that only machines that are compatible with your environment can be procured, reducing help desk calls caused by maverick machines. Further, by enforcing standardization, we help reduce fleet complexity and simplify support issues in the print space for IT.
Contain staff head count
Printer/copier fleets can create incredible demands on staffing and budgets. But with Optimizon enforcing the purchase of standardized, compatible solutions, you can reduce the amount of time you spend on resolving printer/ copier issues and prevent staff headcount from ballooning. And that’s one less headache you have to deal with.
