3 key benefits of printing finance solutions
Office printers and photocopiers continue to be heavily used, despite the rise of digital. This article explores the benefits to vendors of providing different ways of funding these essential items of office equipment.
Australia is one of the biggest consumers of paper in the world. We get through approximately 230 kilograms of paper per person every year, Forest Ethics research revealed. That's the equivalent weight of 30 bowling balls. (Don't worry, we're also pretty great at recycling*).
Even in an increasingly digital world, people and businesses in the country rely on paper. This is why the printing industry continues to generate $7 billion a year in revenues and employs over 30,000 staff, according to IBIS World.
But hardware print equipment and multi-function devices are often a significant investment for your customers. We believe printing finance solutions can help, and here's how:
1. Differentiate your offering
Providing a finance option for your customers is an excellent way to differentiate your service in a highly competitive market. You can also convert a greater number of potential leads by eliminating price as a barrier to sales.
