Excessive printing is a common way that companies can lose tons of money. Maybe you have already made changes there: you’ve controlled access to printers, limited documents sent to print, and used the high-performing equipment. Surprisingly, printing may still be a significant loss for your company.
It’s time to consider something new – like managed print services. MPS is easy to budget for, control, and analyze spending. You can break out print projects by individual or department to understand where excessive use may originate. If you want to save money on printing, it’s time to consider managed print services today.
You may need managed print services if:
1. Your equipment is outdated and inefficient
New printers regularly upstage old devices, and it’s hard to stay on top of changing needs and expectations. Make it someone else’s concern to have the most efficient equipment, and spend your time researching new business ideas, instead of new office equipment.
2. Printing workflow is clunky and time-consuming
Do you often see employees waiting in line for the printer? When you make an edit, do you have to trek back and forth from your desk to the printer for each tiny change? Does your printer reset before completing a job? These issues are common, and they can take up considerable time every week. Save yourself the hassle of altering your workflow with managed print services.
3. It’s difficult to streamline orders, supplies, and repairs
Maybe a different employee orders supplies than the person who calls for repairs. Those communications don’t always line up, and wires get crossed sorting it out. Outsource the stress this puts on multiple employees by hiring professionals to take on the system.
4. Printing costs fluctuate constantly
Depending on the season or department activities, your printing costs can go through the roof or seem manageable. This can throw any business manager into a fit. Make it simple to predict what’s coming your way every month by setting a budget with your print solutions manager.
