Pet-Friendly place to work

Brothers II Business Machine is a dog-friendly place to work. Sadly we had a loss this week, my beloved Duke had passed, he was 14-year-old Cockapoo. He was loved by everyone here, he was so sweet and visited everyone a couple of times a day. If he walked into your office just to say hi he would be handed a treat so of cause he did it often. It’s very hard to say goodbye to a family member or even a furry co-worker. Thank God I got to bring him in and was able to spend time with him at work. RIP my fur baby.

If you bring your dog to work post a picture on our Facebook page of your fur baby and luck place you work at.

Power saving mode. How does it effect your energy savings and being green?

It’s amazing how each and every small thing we can do on a daily basis that will help with our environment.  You can easily save energy in your office,  school or organization without much effort.  If you have purchased a copier, printer or any other office equipment with an ENERGY STAR feature, you are on your way to help save our planet. It’s up to you to make sure you are using these power management settings properly to get the most effective cost and energy savings.

Don’t worry about recovery time, ENERGY STAR copiers will recover within 30 seconds after resuming from their low power saving mode. Setting the machine to it’s default energy saving mode will help you even if you don’t want to be bothered manually setting it up.

Any machine you have that you can utilize the ENERGY STAR feature is always helpful,  including computers. So many of us just walk away from them and don’t even think about them sitting there wasting energy, resources and your money!

It’s easy to do your part and once the settings are introduced, there’s nothing more to think about!

Going Green

So we’ve all been told our planet is in trouble. You hear about it on the news all the time. A big goal of ours is to help your company help the environment. There is so much new technology out there today and so many choices. That’s why we are here, to assist you in the decision-making. It’s important for us to know what your goals are and how much paper flow you are working with. We can teach you to become completely paperless or at least, a reduced paper enterprise.

Scanning is a fairly new technology for companies to incorporate in their day. It makes it easier to archive old data instead of having it piling up and collecting dust in a corner. Extra cost becomes a factor because you need to store it, pay rent, pay to cool it in the summer, heat it in the winter and pay someone to administer it.

Once you scan it in to your computers or servers, it’s done. When you need to find that file from 1987, it can be available to you at your fingertips and in one moment, it pops up on your computer screen! There’s no more looking for (and paying someone to find it) that file in a sea of boxes or filing cabinets that can take hours to find it if it’s been mis-filed.
