Managed Print Services has become increasingly popular due to this eye-catching benefit: MPS can save a business 30% on print spending. Some estimates say that for print-heavy industries such as the legal field, the savings can even top 40%. While this is a major incentive for many companies to look at Managed Print Services, there are other benefits MPS can offer.
The demand for Managed Print Services is projected to grow at a healthy rate of 10% each year through 2020. – Photizo Group, 2015
Print can eat up a lot of a business’ budget, but it can also take a lot of time to maintain. As employees wait for jobs to complete at an overburdened printer, they’re not doing other work. Many companies do not utilize their printers efficiently, further harming productivity levels. A Managed Print Services provider can help identify and remedy these problems with a print assessment.
When a printer goes down, that can also eat at productivity levels, as in-house IT teams are typically not trained to deal with printer problems. An MPS provider will not only respond to these emergency troubleshooting calls, but perform preventative maintenance to help prevent printers from going down in the first place.
Print can be hard to budget for when each department is in charge of their own printers. A Managed Print Services provider can remedy this by consolidating print and cosumables spending across the organization. By ordering supplies in bulk businesses can take advantage of volume discounts, further saving money. MPS can help predict spending from month to month and help businesses plan for larger purchases such as printer upgrades.
In a time where many companies are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, MPS can help businesses achieve their environmental goals. MPS helps eliminate print waste by optimizing the print environment, including updating print settings to save paper, toner, and energy. Recycling programs and energy-efficient upgrades can further reduce environmental impact.
