How to Promote a "Greener Office"?
Take the Green Initiative!
Aftermarket Toner Cartridges
Like original HP Branded Cartridges (OEM), the premium quality aftermarket cartridge product QLS uses are made from both new and reclaimed components and parts. Of course, the petroleum based case and structural pieces are almost always re-used and eventually recycled, as is the remainder of the cartridge.
Refurbished HP LaserJet Printers and MFPs
Enterprise-grade Hewlett Packard LaserJet Printers and Multi-Function Printers (MFPs) are very high-quality, high-reliability and highly sustainable machines. An alarming number of these printing and imaging devices are under-utilized during their initial ownership and are often replaced before the owner has had an opportunity to appreciate the true ROI potential.
QLS refurbishes and re-sells these assets back into the office place where the new owners are able to appreciate the reduced ownership costs and reduced carbon emissions associated with manufacturing and shipping a new printer unnecessarily.
Onsite and Depot Based Printer and MFP Repair
Often times Laser Printers and MFPs are replaced as opposed to having service or maintenance. The benefits of routine and preventative maintenance (service calls, service agreements, etc.) all support the perspective that fully utilizing a printer before replacing it allows the owner to achieve a greater financial return as well as an environmentally supportive return.

Document Imaging Solutions (electronic file storage and retrieval)
QLS offers several solutions and services for the purpose of filing and retrieving both paper and electronic documents and storing them in a central electronic repository. These solutions eliminate the need and expense of paper files as well as business processes involved with the “traditional” filing method. The environment benefits as well by not printing electronic and “captured” paper documents.
By using our blog to distrbute news and information (instead of printed & mailed newsletter) we further reduce the amount of paper and energy we consume; while educating you the importance of going green.
