One of the best ways to make sure it's always covered is to partner with a trusted vendor when you purchase or lease your copier. That way, you can get set up for ordering, managing, and evaluating your supply needs right from the start.
Supply management has a few critical aspects, including:
Timing - when do you need to reorder so that you don't run out of essential items. Also, you don't want to have too much, so that it's difficult to store and manage.
Amount - again, over-ordering is its own trouble, while running out of needed supplies repeatedly is inefficient and costly. The right amount to order at a time is an important piece to know in supply management.
Responsibility - who is in charge of ordering? If multiple people are ordering, that can cause confusion and inaccuracies. Make sure that the job is clearly delegated to one person who is capable of operating well within the bound of what's needed.
Copiers for Today's Business
The modern office uses advanced copiers, or multifunction copiers, that complete a variety of functions in one machine. This is a great, budget-friendly solution for office equipment, but it does add a new element to supply orders.
Your responsible party needs to ensure that supplies ordered cover all functions of the machine, and there is always enough on hand to get the job done.
