Managed Print Services

Managed Print Services

Managed print services give businesses and enterprises the ability to outsource management of their printing to a provider. This eliminates printer maintenance and other printing-related tasks from the duties of in-house staff, which can increase productivity and, often, save money.

Why It Matters to Your Customers

Printers and other devices such as multifunction printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines, are vital to many operations, but businesses may not have the in-house resources to properly maintain them. Moreover, as businesses grow, they often, add printers or other devices to meet a new need or service an expansion, but the use of printers throughout an organization can become extremely inefficient. The business may also lack solid policies for access control and document security. Managed print services can address all of these needs.

Another issue is managing print media and supplies. This job can be overlooked in a busy production or office environment, but if not attended to and supplies run out, printing stops. Moreover, if the business has never standardized supplies and put policies in place for optimizing their use, it can be spending far more on consumables than it needs to. And if a business is required to comply with an environmental sustainability policy, managed print services can help reduce paper and energy consumption to help reach those goals.

Why Managed Print Services is an Opportunity

As a managed print service provider, you can establish the most cost-effective plan to meet the printing demand for your client, which may include developing a more efficient plan for printer and device use across the organization, remote printer and device monitoring, providing IT support, and arranging for off-site printing of some materials when practical. You can also offer services including managing a client’s print media and supplies inventory.

Provide unique value-adds to differentiate your business from your competitors, such as working with your clients to develop roadmaps for high-efficiency device upgrades that align with their budgets, creating unique solutions that enable remote employees to print securely, or reducing paper use with digital solutions.
