DYMO® Reveals Over Half of Small Businesses Mislabel Documents At Least Occasionally and Seek Better Organization
Recent Survey Shows Office Managers Are Prioritizing Efficiency and Waste Reduction Despite Macro Factors
The survey reveals that small business office managers are most looking forward to opportunities for growth (58%), followed closely by enhancement in efficiency and processes (57%). However, despite existing challenges, such as over half (52%) of respondents reporting mislabeling orders, products or documents at least occasionally to frequently, only a quarter (25%) name maintaining an organized office as a top priority this year. While mostly out of their control, office managers cite inflation (62%), other economic issues (44%) and staffing (32%) as top concerns.
Despite ever-increasing amounts of data coupled with heightened workplace demands and environmental concerns, the three top ways small business office managers are looking to organize and streamline their processes include reducing waste (46%), reducing supply costs (45%) and optimizing productivity (38%). When it came to productivity specifically, nearly half (47%) of respondents note that a label printer getting jammed or printing inaccurate information can set them back at least several hours.
"With many macro-economic factors beyond an organization's control, small business office managers, now more than ever, are looking for ways to streamline their processes to stay on track, on time and in budget," said
How the LabelWriter 5 series can help:

- Waste Reduction: Despite 75% of respondents feeling that waste reduction is a priority in their office, one-third (34%) feel that their company isn't doing enough to reduce waste. The DYMO LabelWriter 5 series is compatible with DYMO® Authentic LabelWriter® paper labels, which are made from FSC®-certified materials, label box packaging is made from 80% recycled paper, and it is virtually jam-free. Businesses can cut down on waste in a simple and effective way that brings them closer to achieving their office's sustainability goals.
- Efficiency: One-third (32%) of respondents noted that their office can be better organized through labeling. When using authentic DYMO labels, the new Automatic Label Recognition™ feature touts the unique ability to detect the label size, type and color, delivering advanced reliability and making misprinting labels something of the past, further streamlining office organization and efficiency.
- Automated Processes: All small business office managers agreed that efficient organization tools are important to an office, with 73% using labeling in their office at least weekly. All three devices within the LabelWriter 5 series feature a label counter that keeps track of remaining labels for users so they can focus on other aspects of their business and stock up on labels before running out.
