They say that, today, we are in the age of services, and the truth is that this statement makes a lot of sense. In recent years we have seen the arrival of software as a service, and also of hardware as a service, but did you know that there is also ink as a service? Well that’s right, it’s called HP Instant Ink and has achieved revolutionize the world of printing.
Why has the HP Instant Ink service revolutionized the world of printing? Well, it’s very simple, because it has been able to offer a series of advantages through its ink-as-a-service model that have made the concept of ink as a product obsolete.
To understand it, it is necessary to analyze everything that implies for the consumer to have to buy ink cartridges, and how the HP Instant Ink service makes a difference in this regard. We will find out with a realistic analysis, and we will also see how the HP service works.
Buying ink is a significant expense, and it takes time
To be able to use your printer you need ink cartridges. These can be purchased in various ways, although the most profitable are the high capacity ink cartridge packssince they include all the cartridges that we will need (color and black and white) and are usually priced slightly less than the units purchased individually.
However, to be successful when buying ink cartridges, it is essential to spend some time searching and comparing in different stores, all in order to get the best possible price. This can take hours, or even days if we want to do a very exhaustive analysis and compare all possible retailers, and in the end nothing guarantees that we will end up really finding the best possible price.
When we buy a pack of ink cartridges we also have to make a significant expense that, normally, can go from a few tens of euros to more than 100 euros. This will depend on the cartridges that our printer uses, and the possible price variations that occur at any given time. We must not forget that, in addition, we will have to go to the store to buy the cartridges, which it will waste even more timeor we will have to order them online and pay, in many cases, shipping costs.
Well, you have your cartridges, now what? Well, you have a specific amount of ink that will allow you to print a certain number of pages, but this will vary depending on the ink you spend. If you print in color and high quality you will use more ink, the cartridges will run out sooner and you will have to buy another pack in the short term. In case you print in black and white, you will also use more ink if you attach graphics or tables, and if you work with high quality and cover the entire surface of the paper.
In case you don’t print to save ink you won’t be fixing anything, since in reality you will be giving up using your printer, and this is not the best way to save. Having something you want to use and not doing it so as not to spend is a sacrifice, not a way to save.
