PLEASANTON, Calif., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Most companies are more than well aware of the need to increase workplace efficiency in order to turn a greater profit, but many are not familiar with the term that makes it possible. Office automation refers to the many items that help to streamline office efficiency, such as software, computers and machines. Without office automation, many companies would be struggling to be productive. Fortunately, companies such as Pacific Office Automation Pleasanton exist to help ease the availability of these necessities.
"Every company, large and small makes use of office automation," said a representative with Pacific Office Automation Pleasanton. "There are many obvious functions that the components of office automation can accomplish, but many office employees are unaware of just how much they can do."
The representative gave as an example the multifunction printer. "Obviously, the MFP can print and scan, it can copy and fax," said the representative. "What many people do not know is that an MFP can also manage documents and deliver incoming faxes electronically."
Pacific Office Automation Pleasanton is urging companies to take stock of their office automation and to truly analyze whether or not they are making good use of the technologies that are available to them.
"Many companies already have great systems in place, but they just do not know how to maximize their use," said the representative. "In other cases, there are companies that are in need of more office automation because they are wasting time on processes that could easily be accomplished in a fraction of the time."
The representative also discussed how the proper utilization of office automation can reduce costs in a number of different ways.
"Printer costs can really get out of control if they are not monitored," said the representative. "A good MFP will be able to delete duplicate jobs while also tracking costs by machine, application and user."
The company emphasized the need for companies to become familiar with the office automation term, as it is very closely tied to a company's efficiency and profitability.
"The proper use of office automation can go a long way in terms of increasing profits," said the representative. "There really is no simpler method to increasing profits than by turning to office automation to increase and optimize the function of a workplace."
