H&R Block Mudgee recently reviewed its printing arrangements. With output in excess of 40,000 documents a year, it thought savings should be possible.
H&R Block Mudgee's Jim Dryburgh said the company considered buying a single printer to replace the smaller models spread around the office and found the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC would reduce printing costs from seven cents a page to just one cent.
"When you do your research you find that Epson RIPS printers for offices like ours are very hard to beat. The life of the ink, the sheer volume they print and at such a low cost makes the decision a no-brainer," he said.
The WF-R8590TC uses Epson's replaceable ink pack system (RIPS) that yields up to 75,000 pages in black or 75,000 in colour from one set of cartridges, reducing the need for intervention.
"We use our WF-R8590TC a lot, particularly for multi-page, double-sided tax returns, working pages and all sorts of office administration. We just cannot go paperless," said Dryburgh.
"So bearing this in mind, the single standout benefit of the Epson WF-R8590TC RIPS solution is the cost of running it and the amount of prints it provides us with before we have to change ink. That said, the printer is incredibly reliable despite our heavy usage and we haven't had a single problem with it since we purchased it."
He added, "The WF-R8590TC RIPS solution is perfect for our office. It also connects to the network very easily which means we can scan and share documents simply and efficiently. I cannot think of a better all-round office printing solution."
