greenOffice is a proudly South African company that specialises in complete document solutions for the office. By encouraging South Africans to recycle and ‘go green’, this innovative company has grown and developed substantially over the last 16 years, moving from the remanufacturing of used printer cartridges to offering a full Managed Print Service.

Through their Managed Print Services or MPS, greenOffice offers companies the opportunity to manage their printing environment, providing transparency and clarity on the costs involved in their office document creation environments in order to encourage companies to reduce their waste, be more efficient in the use of resources and ultimately shave [cut/reduce] their printing costs by at least 30%.

The MPS product is unusual in the printing supplies market as it encourages companies to use less and to conserve more in order to improve [reduce] their carbon footprint.  Document production, which includes printing, copying and scanning, is said to be the equivalent of 5% of a business’ turnover. By implementing a MPS solution such as greenOffice’s, companies are guaranteed to drastically reduce their overheads.

greenOffice’s remanufactured quality laser printer cartridges are built to compete with traditional printer products in terms of print quality as well as page yields, and the company constantly strives to ensure exceptional product quality and service. The entire MPS solution also includes cartridge supplying, the collection and recycling of used cartridges and the servicing and maintenance of printing hardware to ensure the equipment is functioning at optimal efficiency.

In 2011, greenOffice was involved [instrumental] in the creation [set-up] of greenABLE, the first and only printer cartridge recycling facility in the whole of Africa. greenABLE is a non-profit company based in Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal. Through skills development and the creation of job opportunities, greenABLE not only reduces the level of waste products produced through office printing but it also gives back to the surrounding community by educating members of the community and thus enabling families to support themselves and those around them.

In the end, an effective MPS solution can not only save you money, it can help you save the earth.
