Revenue For My Architecture and Engineering Firm

What are you doing to help increase revenue for your AEC firm? Does it have to do with adding on more projects? Or maybe marketing efforts to better promote your brand? What about tracking and billing back for all print expenses?

If your firm isn’t already tracking every print, allocating costs, and invoicing clients for reimbursements, it is missing out on a huge amount of revenue. 



To efficiently capture this revenue stream, your firm needs a solution that accurately collects print and copy data while integrating these costs into your accounting system for reimbursement.  

Follow along as we explore an AEC-specific solution that won’t disrupt existing workflows, captures every print and copy expense, and makes invoicing those costs painless. 

Increase Revenue For Your AEC Firm

Printing in the AEC industry can be complicated and expensive. Whether your print environment consists of small format, large format, or color production machines, tracking the exact size, quality, and quantity of every print is imperative. 

Accurate tracking isn’t all. You need your staff to correctly assign those costs to the proper project for reimbursement. Then, migrate that billing data into your accounting system for monthly client billing. 

We’re happy to introduce you to a powerful print and copy tracking solution that meets all of those needs, helping your firm track costs and bill back printing expenses. 

Argos: Print and Copy Tracking for AEC

Argos tracks every print and copy job at your company and then helps your staff assign those document costs to a project or account code. Once collected, this information is sent to your accounting system for client reimbursement or internal cost allocation.

Compatible with large format printers, MFPs, and color production equipment, Argos captures every print and copy expense directly from the printer. 

After a print is released or a copy is made, Argos prompts your staff back at their computer to assign those costs to the proper project, phase, and task. Gone are the days of slowing typing in project codes at the copier panel! 

Total ERP Integration

Argos integrates with popular accounting packages (ERPs) like Deltek, BST, Oracle, and more. When a new project, phase, or task is added to your ERP, it is instantly available within Argos, so your staff always bills print and copy costs to proper projects.

Argos sends the billing data gathered from your staff back into your ERP. Before importing, a transaction is created to be reviewed by your accounting team. This saves your staff from hours of tedious data entry and helps generate detailed invoices for every project that was printed during the month with just a few clicks. 

Increase your firm’s reimbursable revenue while saving your staff from hours of frustrating and tedious work with Argos.
