How to Create Unique, Professional Documents Without the Hassle

Printing is a necessary but oftentimes cumbersome process for countless offices. On the surface, it should be simple enough. However, if you expect any sort of creative license when it comes to how the printer is used, for instance different colored inserts, various sizes of paper, bindings, etc., it can start getting really difficult. Some printers simply can’t handle the incredible demand of modern day offices. And even when you have a great MFP (multifunction printer) like those offered from Konica Minolta, you may still not be capable of running them properly yourself. This is where production print workflow from Caltronics comes in.

Improve Your Office’s Printing and Faxing Efficiency with Caltronics

In order to compete in any industry, you need to be as efficient and effective with your time and your employees’ time, as possible. Caltronics Business Systems offers services and products like network fax systems that can change the way you do business for the better.

Document Management

Caltronics has received numerous awards for their customer service, especially when it comes to their services like document management, scanning and capture. With document management, Caltronics can help you ensure that papers no longer go missing in transit, and they will no longer need to be stored in random boxes within storage containers. The best part is that it does not even require extra hardware to get started. As long as your office has a scanner, whether standalone or part of a multi function printer, you have the ability to start reducing your paper use. Imagine being able to simply search for a document from five years ago online, as opposed to having to go digging through the storage closet and trying to find the right box, hoping that it was properly organized. This search can waste so much time for whoever is searching for it. Time they could be spending actually working.

Another great service that Caltronics offers to improve your office efficiency is network fax systems. The fax machine is one of the most inefficient and wasteful things in your office. Caltronics will connect you with OpenText RightFax to change this. With this service, you will be able to send and receive faxes through your computer instead of the fax machine, saving you time and money.

Staying on top of the newest technological advances to help use office resources more effectively can make huge changes in your office’s efficiency. There has been so much progress in the past decade even, and by missing out on them, you could be falling behind.

How to Save Time in the Office

Everyone is looking for ways to become more productive and waste less time in the office environment. There are plenty of solutions that do not involve wasteful spending or making any huge changes to your work environment. Below are seven simple ways to save time in the office.

how-to-save-time-in-the-office

  1. Give yourself some structure.

    It is really easy to waste time when you do not have a structure that keeps you on top of your work. By scheduling planned times to get certain tasks done, you will make sure that you are actually using your time productively.

  2. E-mail the meeting agenda to everyone ahead of time.

    Meetings are a great way to bring minds together, but they can also be a complete waste of time if they are not well planned. Sending the meeting agenda to all of the participants ahead of time will ensure that everyone is coming to the meeting in the right mindset and prepared to focus on the important topics.

  3. Connect your Konica Minolta printer to OneDrive with the bizhub Connector for OneDrive app.

    OneDrive is one of the more popular cloud services, and now you can access and print straight from your MFP.

  4. Partner with Caltronics to get managed print services.

    This will simplify your printer environment for everyone by having the reliable Caltronics behind you ensuring that your printers are being used as efficiently as possible.

  5. Take a break!

    It may seem counterintuitive because a stroll outside is not productive within itself, but it will make you be more productive in the long run. Getting fresh air into your brain and the blood pumping can lead to new ideas and keep you more concentrated when you sit back down.

  6. Log in and print from your email address right on your printer’s display screen with bizhub Connector for Gmail.

    Konica Minolta MFPs become even more efficient when you combine it with your Gmail. It will now take only seconds to print exactly the right documents without having to even leave the printer.

  7. Quickly find and utilize paper templates for simplified printing and copying with the bizhub Paper Templates app.

    This will ensure that you never have to waste time trying to reprint with the correct form or document template.

With these 7 tips (and the help of Caltronics), you can get the most out of your time in the office.

Are you struggling to keep up with your company’s document workflow? Call Caltronics!

Document workflow should be a key term for anyone who works within the office. How well documents move around the office is integral to how efficiently an office operates. Without proper workflow solutions, documents can be lost, destroyed, or never reach their intended recipient. Caltronics Business Systems has just the solutions for you in order to stop these issues before they ever occur.

There is no doubt that properly managing document workflow is essential, especially when it comes to money. From receipts to payments and invoices, misplacing these documents can cause countless obvious issues. When your customer loyalty is of the utmost importance, losing an invoice or correspondence could harm business. This is why making sure that all documents are easily accounted for and managed is so essential.

Document management scanning is one way that Caltronics can help you feel more secure with your documents. Relying on paper is inefficient and simply does not make sense in today’s world. Nearly everything your business does is most likely online already, such as customer transactions and email correspondences. So why waste paper and money printing everything out when it could be easily and reliably stored?

And not only is digital storing more convenient, but it is also much more secure than filing with paper. You can password-encrypt confidential documents, and only people who are given access can view the documents. This type of ease-of-access for some—but no access for others—is impossible to gain when papers are physically taking up space in an office or somewhere away from the office that is difficult to reach. The space that the documents takes up is also much more cumbersome and costlier than cloud storage as well. You could probably even fit in an extra office space if you were to get rid of all of the old documents that are being stored.

From document management scanning to production print to purchasing your next multifunction printer, Caltronics Business Systems has the solutions and expertise to help your office work at its highest potential every day.
