Deciding whether or not to sign on with a managed print services provider? Weighing your options begins by taking a closer look at the benefits.
Here are five advantages managed print services can send your way.
1. A SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT
Managed print providers can implement solutions to bring cohesiveness to your entire fleet, even when your printers and multifunction systems come from a wide variety of manufacturers. Rather than trying to manage a complicated contact list, you'll have one provider for all issues related to printing, including:
- Helpdesk support
- New device procurement
- Document security
- Green printing solutions
- Print tracking
2. MORE EFFICIENT WORKFLOWS
A managed print assessment will give your provider insight into your workflows. By rearranging your devices, eliminating equipment redundancies, and recommending replacements, you'll get more value and more productive hours from every piece of equipment in your fleet.
3. PROACTIVE MAINTENANCE
A break-fix approach for your equipment can leave your team hanging at the worst possible moments. Managed print technicians can monitor your fleet remotely, correcting small problems before they become large enough to cause downtime.
4. PRINT TRACKING
Print tracking brings valuable usage and cost information to light, revealing new data from previously hidden activities. Managed print companies typically recommend solutions to curb wasteful printing, and regular tracking keeps a close eye on progress.
5. LOWER COSTS
It's true that your printing costs include expenses related to equipment purchases, supplies, and service. It's also true that's you're paying for a lot more than that, and indirect costs may have a more damaging effect on your bottom line than anyone realizes. Downtime, equipment life, and workflow hold-ups all impact productivity, and ultimately, your company's balance sheet.
