Your office colleagues are talking about managed print services, but maybe you’re not sure if it’s right for you yet. It doesn’t seem like printers can be too complicated, or expensive…right?
In reality, many managers have no idea how much money is spent on printing issues every month, and the costs can fluctuate dramatically. Why let printing be an excessive cost when it’s simple to control costs and time spent through this secure outsourcing system?
Managed Print Defined
Managed print services allow a trusted vendor to take over the most tedious tasks of printing. From service requests to basic troubleshooting or supply orders to a monthly budget, managed print does it all.
How can it help me? We have the top six reasons below, but there’s more than that – ask any business owner who’s invested in managed print.
1. Organize Your Print Budget
Your vendor will first do a print analysis, which will define exactly what your realistic print budget will be every month, based on use, supplies, necessity, and more.
Then – you’ll stick to it! By following the print strategy they provide, your office will have reliable costs within your expectations with every bill.
This is a surprise to some people, but it makes sense – by cutting back on wasteful practices, you save a ton of paper, ink, toner, and more.
Your office just reduced the waste produced by more than if you’d tried to convince one person to recycle. Take the big steps first – then get everyone on board to recycle, too.
3. Fix Supply Issues
Instead of supplies coming in at random times that may not be right for your equipment, managed print services will provide timely, scheduled supply shipments to keep you worry-free.
4. Stop Overordering
This goes in hand with the supply chain. Reducing waste is a huge benefit of managed print, and it comes into play with overordering supplies as well. So you don’t have excess on hand you never use, we’ll ensure that the timing of reorders is in line with your use.
5. Simplify Service Requests
Service requests could be easier, or they could be outsourced, so you don’t have the hassle of doing it yourself.
6. Predict Print Costs
Not only will your monthly budget be manageable, but it will also be predictable so that you can look at the next fiscal year without any big surprises from your print environment.
