Educational organizations have always had to be hyper-vigilant about how they spend their money. Most have very little control over how much they’ll have in their budgets in the first place, yet there are certain costs these schools simply must cover.
Unfortunately, many of them are often unnecessarily high. For example, the average school of 1,000 or university department of the same size spends roughly $3,000 to $4,000 a month on printing supplies (e.g. paper, ink, etc.).
This doesn’t even include printer wear-and-tear or the price of technical support.
Does some of this sound familiar?
Common Challenges Facing Educational Organizations
These statistics are only the tip of the iceberg, too. There are a number of other ways academic institutions find their budgets and potential needlessly weighed down.
This includes issues like:
Managing paper and digital documents:
Roughly 90 % of critical information is on paper – only paper. If anything happened to the hardcopies of this sensitive data, it would be gone forever.
Protecting student data and other sensitive information:
Schools are becoming some of the most sought-after targets by cybercriminals, largely because of their access to student data.
Workflow bottlenecks and outdated practices:
Unless your institution has the time for regular reviews, it’s easy to become reliant on outdated practices or take workflow bottlenecks for granted, even though they cost time and money.
Most schools have no idea how much paper they’re wasting every year. They’re simply throwing away money.
Although these common challenges may seem overwhelming, Donnellon McCarthy Enterprises (DME) can help.
