If you’ve been considering Managed Print or are curious about it, you probably have some questions. Like, what exactly is a Managed Print provider? Can they really save you money? And, is MPS really worth it?

As with any new commitment, we understand your hesitation. In this post we’ll explore what Managed Print is and if it might be a good option for your business.

What is Managed Print?

A Managed Print Services (MPS) provider is an outsourced team of experts who work with you to get your print environment under control. They can help you free your IT staff’s time to focus on mission-critical tasks, help you to create more efficient workflows, and ultimately save you up to 30% on your annual print costs by using proven strategies. An MPS provider can help you to:

  • Gain visibility into print costs
  • Reduce help desk tickets
  • Free up time, money, and resources
  • Improve network security
  • Cut down on waste
  • Right-size your printer fleet

…and much more!

An MPS partner will eliminate inefficient devices, and identify which printers, copiers, and MFPs have higher operating costs, are ending their useful lifecycles, or are a security risk. Your MPS provider will become an extension of your in-house IT department.

Choosing the Right Partner

Finding the right MPS partner can be challenging. They need to have a proven track record, but they also need to be flexible, reliable, friendly, and ready to meet your needs. Here are a few things to look for when vetting providers:

  • Do They Listen? – A good provider will be eager to learn about your business and needs. They should provide a free assessment of your print environment and measure your current print costs so they can create a strategy to meet your exact needs.
  • Are they Helpful? – Their job is to make your team’s job easier. That means they should be honest, reliable, and open when answering questions.
  • Do They Understand the Newest Technology? – A good partner must excel at recommending, implementing, and maintaining not only your print devices, but other technologies that can enhance your workplace and processes, secure your data, and save you money.
