When it comes to purchasing printers, most schools are anything but organized. Printers are purchased in a wide variety of ways: centrally, departmentally and individually. Most users haven’t a clue as to how many prints they are making. When it comes to supplies and repairs, most rely upon secondhand knowledge or the closest vendor down the street.

K12 Solutions is vendor neutral and will help you control your printing costs by keeping an accurate, up-to-the-minute meter read that is accessible to you 24/7. In addition, it will alert you to repairs, low supplies, and keep you informed as to which printers are swallowing your financial resources.

K12 Solutions will allow you to accumulate historical information that may not be currently available when a user purchases an inexpensive inkjet printer, puts it on the desktop and starts printing, most do not realize the cost per copy is many times more than actually has been represented by the reseller. They also may not be aware of low cost alternatives that could save you thousands.

K12 Solutions puts powerful data at your fingertips, allowing you to make the decision as to what is most cost effective.
