GONE are the days when printing documents and pictures would cost an arm and a leg. Thanks to a company like Ink All-You-Can, a continuous ink supply system provider, you can have multiple copies of documents and have high-quality photographs right before your eyes.
“It was very costly before to print using computer printers. The price of both color and black ink cartridges would almost equal that of the price of your brand new printer,” says Nelson Dizon, Ink All-You-Can’s head of marketing. A t that time, there were ink refilling stations that would cater to practical users but there would be hitches, like poor quality of ink refills and the dangers they pose to computer printers.
It was in October 2005 that the technology behind the Continuous Ink Supply System (CISS) was introduced in the Philippines. “Soon enough, our people were able to learn the technology developed early that year and we brought it here. We were the first company to provide CISS in the Philippines,” adds Dizon.
Ink All-You-Can’s CISS can be used in most computer printer brands. “The advantage of using CISS is that one cartridge is equivalent to 40 cartridges or 400ml, or 100ml for each of the four colors – cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Compared with buying ink refill cartridges by piece, you can save up to 96% in printing costs,” Dizon explains. “It practically brought down printing expenses from P2 per page to only 10 cents.” Users also don’t have to worry about the quality since Ink All-You-Can’s Ink Precision Technology makes sure that the ink is very comparable to the original ink used by these printer brands.
At the time CISS was introduced in 2005, there was some hesitation on the part of the buying public. After the customers saw the huge savings that they can get, the reception toward the new printing technology became warmer, especially for big users like school, companies and internet and computer shops, and even to personal users.
“Those who doubted the efficiency of the CISS has their worries thrown when they were able to produce themselves the effectiveness and usefulness of Ink All-You-Can’s technology.” In fact, many if these companies who used to rely on original ink and even refilled ink cartridges spent an average of P20, 000 a month. After investing on the CISS for their operations, their cost went down to only P1, 000 monthly.
Some of Ink All-You-Can’s major corporate clients include major mall and real estate developer, chain of hotels, Internet Cafes and an auditing firm, among others. They also have clients from the academe like private schools, colleges and universities, that print voluminous copies of documents, test papers and school-related handouts and lectures.
This year, Ink All-You-Can is introducing its new Ink All-You-Can Colors, a stylish on its most trusted product. “Ink All-You-Can Colors come in five stylish designs, making it more appealing when you have it attached to your printers,” Dizon says. Each of the designs would also make good collectible, while providing the same quality ink that its base of 100,000 customers have bought for many years now.
Ink All-You-Can is also opening its Unli-Ink Plans to businesses who would like to avail [yourself] of their ink services. “If you avail of any of our monthly subscription plans [starting at P3,000/month], we will provide you printers for rent. That also includes maintenance and unlimited ink. We also provide laser printer toner refill and management for those who want to avail them,” he added.
It’s the time of the year for everyone to soak up and have fun under the sun. And Ink All-You-Can start off the summer with genuine excitement and smiles on their faces as they went to the beautiful beaches of Nasugbu, Batangas last March 27-28, 2013.
The 2-day company summer event entitled Summer UBE (Ultimate Bonding Experience) 2013 was joined by over 100 employees including branch Retail Ink Specialists and officers who together enjoyed fun-filled and team-building activities such as tug-of-war and obstacle course. Others took pleasure in beach volleyball, karaoke singing and simply enjoying the serenity of the place by walking along the shore with friends.
The night was then spent with some wholesome party and friendly talent competition that showcased the beauty and wit to all participating employees. The evening events completed the day and brought laughter and amazement to all.
Going home with new memories to cherish, the IAYC family is empowered to work harder and achieve greater results as one team.
Christmas is for the children! That is why the INK All-You-Can team did not let the Yuletide Season pass without giving a little but heartfelt surprises to some homeless yet cheerful children.
Most of these children were rescued from the unsafe streets of Rizal province, some abandoned by their parents; some left their homes for personal reasons.
The team conducts blissful interactions through games, fun activities and surprises. The team also provides exciting school supplies, toys and some stuff that kids can use.
“It was a perfect way to celebrate Christmas”, uttered Ms. Rio when asked how she feels about the activity.
The day ended with the kids’ favorite meal from a leading quick-service restaurant. It was also followed with a cheerful dancing and singing as the kids showcase their talents to their visitors.
The team left the shelter with smiles on their faces as they see how their small blessings touch the children’s lives even for short period of time.
