What is a Managed Print Services ?
A Managed Print Solution covers all aspects of a company’s printing with the anticipated result of saving time and money. This is achieved by analysing their printing requirements and providing more visibility and control of their printing at both the input (data/information going in) and output level (what is actually printed), resulting in them printing less and therefore reducing the amount of ink, paper and energy used.
The Managed Print Solution includes the management of print devices such as printers, scanners, copiers and multifunctional devices as well as document management and workflow solutions to improve the company’s print environment.

“An average 14% of revenue” It’s what most global companies today are wasting on document-related tasks and sorely inefficient printing practices. Eighty percent of business content is unstructured or unmanaged, and of that, nearly half is paper. What does managed print services look like to you?
Move from chaos to order With managed print services (MPS), you can gain visibility and control of your entire document environment. This goes way beyond reducing printing and paper usage. Just as your business is always evolving, managed print services and managed document services continue to evolve to help organizations meet the information challenges of today and tomorrow. Although overall print volumes are down, the widespread use of tablets and smart phones has created additional complexity in the print environment. IT organizations need a strategy to provide access to print from mobile devices without compromising security.
Managed Print Services (MPS) are services provided by external parties to optimize and manage an organization’s print infrastructure and document output.
MPS takes a holistic approach to improving the enterprise print architecture. We help you by aligning devices with your business mission and taking care of their day-to-day management with proactive and predictive service to ensure optimal uptime. Once in place, the managed environment becomes a conduit to unify print and digital information for streamlined processes and workflow. You’ll benefit with fewer devices, fewer pages, lower costs and improved knowledge worker productivity.
MPS is closely related to managed document services (MDS) and the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Typically, “managed document services” carries the broader meaning of referring to both print and electronic documents. However, as MPS has evolved over the years, it also includes electronic information and workflows. This is why MPS and MDS are so closely linked.
Ready for a technology-based approach<br/>to managed print services?
The definition of managed print services, in simplest terms, is: Services offered by an external provider to optimize or manage a company’s document output. This seems straightforward enough. However, how an external provider performs this service can have a big impact on your results.
Many providers rely heavily on a large staff of field service techs to deliver managed print services (MPS). Meaning if something breaks, you call them. They fix it. With a tech on every corner, they can have someone onsite in no time. While a labor-based approach works, it creates burdensome delays and disruptions for you, your staff and your users. In general, you have to experience a failure before corrective action is taken. You need to wait for a tech to arrive, and hope the problem can be fixed right the first time. With this approach, the process starts after the device has an issue.
Optimizing your printer infrastructure
Managed Print Services (MPS) is not just a cost-cutting tool, it’s a strategy to transform the flow of print and digital information throughout your enterprise.
