Should A Business Consider Buying Or Leasing Office Supplies?

Old-fashioned or uncomfortable office equipment leads to lack of interest in work among employees. When a business stocks the latest technology office machines, it makes the job quick and easy while requiring minimum human efforts. For upgrading your office machines, you have two options: either you can buy new equipment or you can lease them. If you are buying a new machine and it’s rarely used, you will bear unnecessary costs as these machines are quite expensive. In this situation, leasing is a better business decision. When you lease an equipment, you are only paying a small amount of rent as and when required. However, if that machine is going to be used regularly for a long period of time, it’d make better sense to purchase it outright rather than leasing.

But making the decision whether to buy or lease is a tough one. Here are some key points that will help you make a proper decision whether to buy or lease:

  • Know your printing costs: If your printing jobs cover more than 500 – 600 pages a day, it is always beneficial for your firm to go in for a lease. Getting a refurbished printer on lease would any day be less costly than buying a new one. Whereas, if you’re printing job is for less than 600 pages then buying a printer will be more beneficial.
  •  Consider your budget: If you have enough budget and can afford buying large machines, then no issues. But if it is not, then getting them on lease would be a wise decision for cost cutting without spending a lion’s share of your budget. 
  • Getting rid of your taxes: Buying a brand new product will bring along an additional amount of tax; whereas with leasing, you can claim the monthly lease amount as an expense of your firm. 
  • Fixing issues: Buying office supplies has additional expenses like fixing issues when they break down or when some major problems crop up. But with leasing, the lessor will do all the updates and troubleshooting for your equipment.

So if you are planning to revamp your office space with refurbished or new office supplies, contact Acedepot. We provide a range of office machines, new as well as on lease, at the most affordable prices.

7 Emailing Tips For Effective Communication

7 Emailing Tips For Effective Communication

When it comes to formal communication, emailing is the preferred method of doing so. Consequently, we end up spending most of our office hours emailing back and forth to colleagues, superiors and clients. As corporate communication is quite different than our informal communication that we use while texting or on Facebook, we need to be very careful while composing those emails. Let’s discuss some tips to make sure that our emails are impeccably written to convey the exact meaning that we want to.

Blog

  1. Proper grammar: It doesn’t matter if you don’t use proper grammar on Facebook or Twitter, or while texting. But while composing an email to your client or superior, you have to be perfect in your grammar, sentence formation and punctuation because that will reflect on your professionalism and attentiveness.
  2. Emailing from phone: Sometimes you just have to reply to an important email no matter where you are. If you are replying to such an important email from phone because you are commuting or are on lunch break, make sure to keep your communication to bare minimum. Composing perfect email replies on phone is quite a pain, and so it’s better to write long emails that require proper composition from the computer or laptop rather than from your mobile phone.
  3. Avoid passive aggression: Expressing the right emotions through work emails is not always possible. It might happen that the sender meant to say something else but ended up understanding something entirely different. When this happens, we get frustrated and want to reply in a passive aggressive manner to let the other person know what we actually think about their email. Control this impulse. Better fix a meeting with your colleague or manager for clear and meaningful conversation. It’s lot more beneficial than resorting to underhanded insults.
  4. Proper layout: Presentation of your email matters a lot because no one wants to read sloppily written message. Make sure you use the fonts that are easily legible, the color of the fonts aren’t obscure and the margins are properly set.
  5. Emails aren’t private: Work emails are the company’s property. They can be retrieved, examined or used in a court of law anytime. Also, when you are sending emails over the internet, they aren’t secure unless they are encrypted. Additionally, they can be forwarded to unintended audiences unwittingly. So it always pays to keep the communication professional and brief. Instead of sending out important facts and figures in the email, call a meeting and share those numbers.
  6. Proper subject: Always have a relevant subject line in the email. If the email is important, having “Hi” as a subject line will definitely undermine its significance. If you are sharing quarterly sales figures with your team, have “Quarterly Sales Report” or “Quarterly Performance Report” in the subject line.
  7. Junk emails and chain letters: Don’t ever forward chain emails or junk emails to anyone. If you know any of your work friends who would enjoy such emails, just sent those to them instead of spamming inbox of every one in your directory.
