Managed Print Services includes much more than printer maintenance and upgrades. It can help you improve your organization’s workflow. Outsourcing your MPS allows you to better integrate your printer fleet into your organization’s work processes.
Here are a few ways that Managed Print Services can improve workflow.
Take a Fresh Look at Your Current Printing Needs
An MPS provider knows that your printing needs include more than toner and paper. Those aging and underperforming local printers used exclusively by just one or two people could be costing your organization money. Some printer replacement cartridges actually cost more than the printer! An MPS provider will assess your current print landscape and find the most optimal solution for your needs and budget.
The Right Printers to Fit Each Workplace
MPS providers can replace wasteful printers with leased equipment that better suites workplace needs. Because no two workplaces are the same, service providers use their expertise to help businesses find the perfect match.
Efficient printer placement is all about accessibility. Accessibility improves workflow when someone who needs a fast copy or printing job can get it done without taking a 5-minute stroll across the building. The loss of productivity and time away from more productive work is a byproduct of inefficient office printer placement. A Managed Print Services provider has the expertise to ensure proper printer placement.
Monitor Your Printing Usage
MPS technology includes printer monitoring software. The software provides the data you need to:
- Detect and troubleshoot problems before they impact your printing operation
- Analyze and review usage data for better budgeting estimates
- Automatically replenish toner and other printing supplies
Getting a handle on your printer usage and how it serves your business function is a key factor of workflow improvement.
