Xerox software help LA school cut costs by $1.5 million  Colleges across the U.S. have had to tighten their wallets over the past few years as endowments sank following the financial crisis and contraction in consumer spending. In California, the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College (LATTC) successfully cut its operating expenses and improved efficiency by implementing a managed print service. 

According to university administrators, the college worked with Xerox and purchased its managed printing service to cut waste by students and teachers. After the system's implementation throughout the school, cost savings totaled more than $1.5 million. By consolidating output devices like printers and copiers, the software directs users to print jobs to the most cost-effective, energy efficient machines, saving money and reducing waste.

So far, the school has drastically cut back its spending on paper and power consumption. "By updating and improving the reliability of our campus print facilities, we're helping students work more efficiently day to day," the school's vice president of administrative services, Dr. Mary Gallagher, said in a statement. "The new print infrastructure makes it easier for all of us to champion the college's environmental sustainability and cost-savings goals, freeing up time and resources that we can reallocate to what matters most: providing a great education for our students."
