Managing Your Canon Toner Supply

Do you order toner for your department’s Canon copiers? If so, the Department of Managed Print Services encourages you to closely monitor your toner supplies to avoid running out of toner at critical times. One way to avoid unnecessary downtime is by ordering toner when you have only one toner bottle per color. For additional tips and resources, contact Managed Print Services at mps@miami.edu.
