Limpio MPS Managed Print Services - New To MPS?

Managed print services can and does involve many different things, but the core of what it means for your company should remain the same, namely:

  • Visibility and control of your office printing
  • Optimised processes and a boost to productivity
  • Reduced costs due to improved efficiency
  • Improved environmental sustainability and document security

Printing itself can also be a broad stroke. Simply though, “printing” in the organisational sense means the total cost of managing and optimising your printers, their output, and the people and processes that support the hardware. This can include:

  • Pages produced by workers (both office and remote) and production print operations
  • Office, desktop, multifunction or high volume printers, copiers, scanners and fax machines
  • Materials released for quick printing, offset printing, mailing and distribution
  • IT help desk support, technical service, maintenance or move and change requests
  • Paper, ink, toner, electricity or other supplies and consumables

Printing costs can account for as much as 15% of annual spending. Using MPS you can drastically reduce costs by up to 30% through intelligent outsourcing.

The best MPS companies should be more than just overseers. They should:

  • Conduct thorough, up-front assessments of your printing infrastructure
  • Monitor, manage and optimise your total print output environment, regardless of brand
  • Provide a device roadmap to create uniformity and efficiency across your devices
  • Proactively identify and resolve printing and supply problems before employees are affected
  • Cut your carbon footprint by consuming less energy and paper, generating fewer greenhouses gases and reducing landfill waste
  • Work with remote and mobile workers to provide easy and secure printing access
  • Provide network management and IT integration, from platform support to cloud-based solutions
  • Use change management expertise to train and prepare your employees for any minor transition required
  • Have an extensive record of excellence in deploying MPS in a variety of environments
  • Transform slow, paper-based processes (like routing and approvals) into automated, digital ones
  • Continuously monitor your printing environment and use ongoing process improvements to save you time and money. – already been said above

The true measure of a good managed service provider is one who can seamlessly manage your  print infrastructure while you devote your time to what really matters, running your business.
