Managed Print Services for Better Printing

Monday December 17, 2018

How often do you use your printer in a day? These important devices are in constant use. Despite this, many businesses don’t carefully monitor or maintain their printers to keep them running at peak efficiency. Fortunately, with Managed Print Services you can outsource the care of your printers to expert providers, so you can enjoy the benefits of a healthy print environment.

Repairs and Maintenance

A Managed Print Services provider monitors your printers for the early signs of a problem, so repairs can be done quickly – before your printer goes down. This sort of proactive maintenance not only helps avoid a costly outage but can also help extend the life of your printer. Expert technicians will conduct all printer maintenance and repairs. This alleviates the need for your IT people to have to try to deal with printer issues and gets you the highest quality in repair services.

Supply Ordering

Printers use a lot of consumable supplies, but companies often don’t have a defined strategy for supply ordering. This can lead to a variety of problems including:

  • Over-ordering of supplies, leading to waste.
  • Failure to order supplies in time, putting work at a standstill.
  • Over paying for supplies.
  • Supply theft.

An MPS provider can take over the supply ordering, automatically shipping the supplies you need, when you need them.

Volume Monitoring

To truly understand your print environment, you need to know how it is being used. A Managed Print Services provider will conduct a thorough print environment assessment. This report will not only reveal your total print volumes, but which employees and departments are printing the most. With this information, you may be able to deploy your printers more efficiently or cut back on your total print volume to save money. When you understand your printers, you can make better choices.


When you rely on your printers to get the job done, it’s important to keep them in tip top shape. Contact your local Cartridge World to learn more!
