Wartburg Finds 18% Savings in Copiers

Why Copier Reviews Are Low on the 'To Do' List

Not only are copier invoices voluminous and expenses complicated, but can negotiations be held mid-contract? With Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) copier experts taking charge, the answer is “yes, almost always.”

In a review of Wartburg College’s copier contract and invoices, ERA discerned a gradual change in requirements over the years. The college would benefit greatly from modifications to its agreements. By leveraging proprietary benchmark data and industry knowledge about what can be changed, ERA specialists were able to convince the provider to make mid-contract improvements.

As a result, Wartburg College reduced copier expenses by 18% mid-contract.

Reading Between the Lines for Print Reviews

Managing the college’s $190,000 annual print expense requires thoughtful coordination and timing from Wartburg associates. ERA print experts worked closely with key Wartburg College stakeholders to save about 12% with incumbent suppliers.

Wartburg College printing expenses covered a multitude of projects and materials:

Booklets                     Brochures          Calendars

Cards                         Covers              Flyers

Folders                       Invitations         Labels

Letters                       Mailers              Newsletters

Post Cards                  Posters              Programs

Publications                Stationery


In addition to competitive pricing, Wartburg College required consistent and excellent product quality, a high level of service, a convenient ordering process, and helpful staff.

 

“We didn’t have the time or expertise to renegotiate our copier lease. ERA brought in the appropriate experts and was able to renegotiate and find significant savings for the remaining life of our copier lease.” - Richard Seggerman, Chief Business Officer & Treasurer of Wartburg College
