The tools you need to achieve the most environmentally-friendly office.
Meridian has a strong initiative to produce less waste, consume less energy, and make responsible decisions regarding the environment - both internally and externally. As a company we work diligently to find new ways to continually advance our green initiatives. Many of the companies that partner with us also have similar initiatives to do their part in saving the environment.
Internally, we recycle our own cartridges, as well as paper, bottles and cans. We have small measures that add up too – such as washable dishes (instead of disposable plates, cups and utensils), hand dryers (versus paper towels), and electronic invoicing (reducing paper and fuel costs associated with print and mail). Visit our office and see plants placed throughout the space. It’s not just aesthetically pleasing; studies show plants are not only a stress reducer for employees, they also improve air quality.
We offer a programs to our customers offering pre-addressed labels to return empty cartridges to recycling destinations; an easy and convenient method for our customers. In a broader sense, we help our customers transition from a paper-dependent and possibly wasteful culture, into an efficient work environment. Our solutions help customers cut down on excessive paper use and unnecessary energy consumption. We’re proud to say we’ve tested and applied these concepts to our office.
Here are some of the benefits that we offer that can help your company “Go Green!"

Our scanning and electronic storage solutions lessen the environmental impact of traditional paper consumption, while reducing the costs of manual retrieval and physical storage of paper documents. These document management systems automate your workflow and come in many different packages. Examples include:
Modern print technology has made it possible to produce large volumes of high-quality printed material right in the office. Depending on the size of your office, and your organization’s needs, print solutions are available in-house that in the past were only found at professional print facilities. In fact, print technology is so good now, particularly the multifunction printer (MFP), that many commercial print shops use the same machines found in many offices.
So, aside from the availability of professional equipment, why are many businesses now considering bringing production printing capabilities in-house?
Read on to learn more about the factors involved when considering in-house production printing vs. outsourced commercial printing, including:
There are a handful of technology trends influencing the construction and property management sector that are important for organizations in these fields to be aware of.
By gaining an understanding of the shifts that are taking place, they will be better positioned to recognize which organizational adjustments and operational strategy changes they need to make to prepare for the future and gain a competitive advantage.

Partnering with a managed IT services provider (MSP) for a Hybrid IT approach enhances your internal IT department with much-needed support, specialized skills and more — without the expense of adding headcount.
Not every business has the staff within their existing organization that they may need, especially with today's quickly-evolving technology landscape.
As Gordon Haff states in his article, Why IT Went Hybrid (And Why It Matters), "it's probably impossible to do everything in-house — and it's certainly not economically sensible."
Haff is right on target, as more and more situations require specialized skills, such as those specific to cybersecurity, physical security, strategic planning or technology upgrade projects. When these situations arise, a company that attempts to solely handle them in-house, on top of their existing workload, can put too much weight on internal IT departments, leaving them less likely to succeed.
Read on to learn how we partner with many of our clients to alleviate these stresses, because your team deserves the resources and support necessary to succeed.
