While everyone is looking to save money, if you're running an office it may be a little more difficult to find places to trim costs. Here are some ways that we think may help:
Paper: If you're an office that uses a lot of paper, be sure to recycle the paper, by recycling we mean in-office recycling. Many times in an offices things are misprinted, too many copies are printed and so on. If the paper you're printing on doesn't contain any sensitive information set it aside for employees to use as scratch paper to take notes on. It's a simple idea that not many offices are in the practice of.
Water: While the water cooler talk culture suffer, having a water filtration system can greatly reduce the cost of having bottled water delivered to your office. Brita is among the big companies that not only offer filtration devices that attach directly to a sink, but they also have jugs with replaceable filters.
Phone service: With landline service slowly making it's way to the grave, many companies are offering Voice Over IP or VOIP services for rates that are lower than you can imagine, when bundled with your already in place internet service, the rates are even lower.
Look around your office and see what can be reduced or see if you can work with your vendors to reduce prices of certain products. It's worth a shot and all it takes is a phone call. If you have any questions about starting a business, please don't hesitate to call us at 866-999-8200.
