Proactive vs. Reactive Office Printing
There’s a big difference between proactive and reactive office printing. On average, companies spend 3% of their quarterly budget on print-related costs due to a lack of strategic print practices and software.
Reactive Office Printing
Offices that are reactive only buy toner after it’s needed which leaves the printer out of commission until new toner is bought or ordered. Likewise, a break-fix approach means you must find someone who knows how to fix the problem, make an appointment, and put out extra money to have the printer serviced before you can use it again. Speaking of extra money, how much are you spending on paper? It’s probably a lot if you can’t keep track of how much everyone is printing.
Proactive Office Printing
Proactive printing with Managed Print Services automatically delivers toner to your business when you start running low. This way you can refill it when you need it and get right back to work. The same thing goes for service needs. We optimize equipment to ensure smooth printing, but if something goes wrong, an expert technician will either remote in or come by to troubleshoot and resolve issues so you can continue printing quickly. Also included in MPS is print software that will provide excellent insights into your company’s print practices which will help you save money too.
Don’t rely on reactive office printing. Be proactive with Managed Print Services.
Benefits Of Managed Print Services
Managed Print Services (MPS) offer numerous benefits to businesses, helping them to streamline and optimize their print environment. Here are some key advantages of implementing Managed Print Services:
1. Cost Reduction: MPS can help businesses significantly reduce printing costs by optimizing print resources, implementing print policies, and eliminating unnecessary printing. By tracking and analyzing print usage, MPS providers can identify areas for cost-saving improvements, such as replacing outdated devices with more efficient ones and implementing print quotas.
2. Increased Efficiency: Managed Print Services can improve workflow and productivity by automating manual processes, ensuring timely supply replenishment, and minimizing printer downtime. With MPS, businesses can achieve better document management and streamline their print infrastructure, resulting in improved efficiency across departments.
3. Enhanced Security: MPS helps businesses enhance document security by implementing secure print release, user authentication, and encrypted data transmission measures. With MPS, businesses can reduce the risk of confidential information being left unattended on printer trays and implement secure printing practices that align with compliance regulations.
4. Proactive Maintenance: Managed Print Services providers offer proactive monitoring and maintenance of print devices, ensuring that any potential issues are identified and addressed promptly. This helps prevent unexpected downtime and reduces the need for reactive repairs, ultimately extending the lifespan of the print devices.
5. Improved Document Management: With Managed Print Services, businesses gain better control and visibility over their print environment. MPS providers can offer document management solutions that streamline processes, digitize paper-based workflows, and enable seamless integration with other business systems, leading to improved document security and retrieval.
Overall, implementing Managed Print Services can help businesses reduce costs, enhance productivity, and improve document management. By leveraging the expertise of MPS providers, businesses can optimize their print environment and focus on their core operations.
