SMALL TO MEDIUM
Managed Print Solutions
For over a decade our team has delivered managed print solutions for small to medium sized businesses. We proudly offer same day and next day support to a large number of Victorian offices.
Small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) often have no idea just how much printing is going on in their offices. This printing often becomes a ‘forgotten’ expenditure that no one notices. CEOs and directors are often shocked to find that office printing can easily add up to 3-8% of business turnover. Here at Cube, we often help our SME customers save 60% of this cost.
What is an SME?
The term SME stands for small and medium sized
business enterprises. We classify a business as small
or medium based on the number of employees it has.
We categorise as follows:
Small Businesses: 0-19 employees
Medium Businesses: 20-199 employees
0-4 employees are categorised as "micro"
