Printing is an integral part of the day to day operations of nearly every organization, yet close to 90 percent of businesses don’t track their print costs. When you consider that average print costs range between five and fifteen percent of annual revenues, the need for a more strategic approach to printing becomes clear—but if you are like most business managers you may lack the time and resources to see it through. Managed Print Services (MPS) is a comprehensive program offered by print providers that is designed to manage and optimize every aspect of your print environment, and it can be customized to suit your unique needs. Read on to learn the benefits of MPS and how it can help your business to succeed.

Cost Savings

In an unmanaged print environment waste can easily occur through the use of old, inefficient equipment and in the absence of print rules and regulations. Managed Print Services helps to reign in these costs by replacing or eliminating outdated printers with energy-efficient models that can help save you time and money, and by implementing a series of print rules based on the needs of each individual user or department.

Strategic Solutions

By addressing your entire print environment, MPS can help deliver advanced print solutions which include:

  • Enhanced security
  • Mobile print strategies
  • Automated document workflows


As your network evolves, an MPS provider will ensure your print environment evolves along with it to avoid issues with downtime, connectivity concerns, or breaches in security.

Relieve IT Burden

IT resources are often at a premium, and may be misdirected to troubleshooting printer issues or arranging for maintenance or repairs. MPS relieves IT personnel of these print related tasks so they can focus on more critical concerns.

Supply Management

Running out of toner in the middle of a busy workday is a thing of the past with MPS. Your usage is tracked to ensure supplies are delivered before you need them, and alerts your provider when maintenance is due.

Help Desk Assistance

Real-time assistance is available to help with issues that may arise regarding your printer software or connectivity, or problems with any of your print, scanning, copying, or fax equipment.

A Managed Print Services provider can help you regain control of your print environment, helping to streamline document production and workflow, and reduce the cost of printing in your organization. Contact us today to learn more!
