Does your business manage all of its printing in-house? If so, you’d benefit from outsourcing the management of your printing environment through Managed Print Services (MPS.) Here are the answers to some of the common questions asked about MPS.
What is Managed Print Services?
Managed Print Services is a partnership that outsources the management of all of your business printing devices to a qualified MPS provider. This may include your printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines. Your MPS solution will optimize your printing practices while helping you to more easily track the costs associated with printing. MPS will consolidate the number of printers your business uses and ensure that you are using the best printing equipment for your needs. It includes remote monitoring of your toner and or ink usage and automatic supply replenishment, which will reduce the downtime resulting from consumable shortages that bring your workflow to a standstill.

There is no shortage of benefits associated with utilizing Managed Print Services. MPS enables you to streamline your print fleet, easily track printing expenses, identify and eradicate waste in your printing processes, and eliminate employee downtime. MPS will:
- Reduce your overall print spend

What Should I Look For in an MPS Solution?
As you look to partner with a Managed Print Services provider, there are many factors that you must consider. For starters, you need to find a provider that will identify your company’s printing needs and map out how they will help improve your document workflow. This will involve an in-depth print analysis. Pricing is also important. You need to determine whether they can create a custom fee structure for your business that is scalable and will grow with your company. Lastly, you want to partner with a provider that has a proven track record with their MPS solution. They should be able to provide client testimonials and success stories.
