Three Tier Colour

What’s included in a Copier Service Contract?

Most copier service contracts typically include toner, maintenance & repairs and anything else that isn’t paper (or staples if you have a finisher). It’s designed to be hassle-free and to allow you to focus on your business and not maintaining a device in your office (or becoming an expert in troubleshooting issues!). This is usually done on a cost per copy basis, one cost for monochrome prints and a higher one for colour prints. For example, this means that even a single blue hyperlink on a printed document produces the full fee for a colour print. Through Kyocera, one of our vendors, we have access to an industry unique feature called Three Tier Colour. Here's how it works.

The machine will examine each page’s colour toner usage and place it in one of three categories:

  1. Low colour coverage at 1/3 the cost of a full colour copy.
  2. Medium colour coverage at 2/3 the cost of a full colour copy.
  3. Full colour coverage at full colour price.. 

Since most customers don't require full colour coverage on their prints, the end result are substantial savings.
