If you’re a business owner, most likely you’ve heard of Managed Print Services (MPS) before. But do you really understand what it’s about, and what it can do for your business? MPS can help you gain control and visibility of your print infrastructure, allowing you to reduce costs and increase productivity. MPS can also improve your environmental sustainability and improve document security. Let’s look at little closer:

Print Management Defined

Managed Print Services addresses the total cost of managing and optimizing your printers, output, staff and processes that support your print environment. This includes:

When you examine your total cost of printing it’s often as much as 15% of your annual expenses. This is your third largest expense right behind rent and payroll! Outsourcing print management to an MPS provider has been shown to reduce costs by as much as 30% almost immediately.
