As the cost of doing business continues to rise, more and more organizations are looking for ways to cut spending in order to increase profits. One area that is frequently overlooked is print, as it can be difficult to determine actual print costs when usage, purchasing, and maintenance are often handled by individual departments. A Managed Print Services provider can help, with strategies and solutions designed to decrease waste, reduce costs, and increase the efficiency of your print environment.
There are a number of myths surrounding MPS that may dissuade you from utilizing this vital service, but it’s important to base your decision whether or not to partner with a MPS provider based on fact, rather than fiction.
Myth #1: MPS is expensive.
Reality: While it may seem like the cost of implementation is high, consider this: in an unmanaged print environment, print-related expenditures are typically spread across an organization which makes them nearly impossible to track. After partnering with an MPS provider, organizations save an average of 30 percent on the cost of printing with significant, long-term savings.
Myth #2: You will need to replace all your existing equipment.
Reality: An MPS provider will perform a comprehensive print assessment to gather information regarding the usage, placement, and volume of your print equipment. From there they will determine which devices bring value to your organization and which ones are inefficient, wasteful, or misplaced. They may recommend newer technology if it will streamline workflows and create efficiencies. Placing the right equipment in the right locations can instantly improve workflow, increase efficiency, and improve your bottom line.
Myth #3: MPS is only good for large corporations.
Reality: Businesses of all sizes can benefit from MPS, which is customizable to suit every size and type of organization. Regardless of the size of your printer fleet or how much you print, MPS can still help you save an average of 30 percent of your current annual print costs.
Myth #4: You don’t need an outsider to manage your print resources.
Reality: Time spent managing the maintenance, supplies, and repairs of your print equipment can be better spent on growing your business. MPS providers are experts in their field and can help you reach your goals for cost savings and increased productivity using proven methods and customized solutions.
