Effective decision-making relies on accurate management information. Columbus Accounting is a business intelligence (BI) framework that provides comprehensive reporting on every aspect of your organization's printing and digital delivery processes to help you identify how you can save costs and drive continuous service improvement.
Columbus Accounting extracts valuable operational data from your enterprise information management systems and supports a wide range of business activities, including:
- Cost analysis and billing – accurate measurement of digital and printed document volumes by user name, document type, department or company, to allow cross charging, customer billing and improved cost control
- Forecasting and capacity planning – reporting on trends, such as print volumes over time, or peaks in online document access, to determine when infrastructure upgrades will be required
- Print infrastructure optimization – assessing reliability, running costs and actual use versus capacity for different printers in order to identify potential savings, for example, by removing costly, error-prone or underused devices
- Service level reporting – measuring performance against key targets such as time to print, or identifying problems such as failing to meet minimum thresholds for printer availability
