Does Your AEC Firm Have an On-Site Wide Format Printer?

May 28, 2018 | Advanced Office

Has your AEC firm acquired a wide format printer? You may have wondered whether having a wide format device at company headquarters would deliver any real, measurable benefits. Here's what to consider when making your decision.

The Wide Format Printer Advantage

For the AEC industry, wide format printing is a standard requirement. If you've been accustomed to outsourcing your firm's wide format documents, there are some substantial advantages to acquiring an on-site device.

Convenience and faster turn-around.**

In most cases, outsourcing your printing needs takes more time than having an on-site solution. With a wide format printer at your disposal, your architects or engineering team can print updates and changes as soon as they're available. Construction leaders can have immediate access to blueprint updates, avoiding costly delays caused by print shop limitations.

Promote your company.

Your wide format printer can do more than just print blueprints or schematics. Using your printer for marketing materials like banners, posters, and signage is a great way to promote your business, both locally and at trade shows and conferences. Additionally, your wide format printer can handle day-to-day business documents and provide automated workflow solutions to help your team get more from their day.

Save money.

There's no question that a wide format printer is a sizable investment, but the advantages make it the right financial decision in the long run.

  • Reduce your wide format outsourced printing costs.
  • Speed up communications with your team.
  • Improve productivity.
  • Deduct the purchase cost as a capital investment.
  • Deduce lease payments as a cost of operation.
