Historically, TCO analyses focused on a narrow set of aspects: device cost, supplies, and maintenance contracts. Today, however, organizations are taking cost efficiency and optimized spending to the next level, and leaders are evaluating a much more complete set of factors when calculating TCO. This is sound business practice. Hidden or ignored costs do matter. Identifying how a specific product, such as a multifunction printer (MFP), impacts all who interact with it and all its cost attributes provides a more complete perspective that can completely alter the TCO picture.

This analysis will focus on TCO issues for MFPs in general, and the specific TCO improvements found in the latest Epson MFPs with PrecisionCore Heat-Free technology. These game-changing products were designed with a broader perspective that brings a delightful ownership experience to IT, users, and the management or administrators of the organization.

Many organizations are just beginning to realize that the TCO of MFPs is worth calculating, having been focused on other costs elsewhere. But with all the unnecessary costs already squeezed out of most areas, organizations are looking for areas where costs have been mostly hidden. When it comes to MFPs, taking a much more holistic view of TCO can be very important to a business or school that has 50, 100, or more of these devices. That produces a multiplier effect that can make a small savings in one device significantly larger when all the devices in use are considered.
