Are all cartridges compatible with all types of machines?

Unfortunately all cartridges are not compatible with all types of machines. The reason for this is that the density of the cartridges differs. The texture of the cartridges are not the same, some are rough while others are finer. The different models of the same product also use different cartridges.

More about “GO GREEN WITH ITEC”?

How Green is ITEC?

Environmental impact of doing business is a topic that is being reported on daily. Business leaders, Shareholders and Customers are under increasing pressure to show that they are either aware or are actively working towards a method that reduces their environmental impact.

As in the case with most new ideas, implementation and skill transfer usually results in nothing being done about the issues at hand. 

Through this offsetting programme companies are now able to prove to their Stakeholders that they are truly committed to sustainability and have a solution that will put them in a strong position for inevitable emission regulations in the years to come.

Our solution allows us to measure the environmental impact a print production device would have on the environment.

We are able to offset the Carbon into micro certificates and have a monthly reporting structure that is auditable.

Being the only Office Automation company in SA to offer this we are taking a leading role in helping SA businesses to reduce their carbon emissions.
