How does your Managed Print Services provider measure up?
Not all Managed Print Services providers are what they're cracked up to be. Here's how to spot the good, the bad and the ugly.
Any print business can claim to be a Managed Print Services provider, but whether they actually deliver these claims is another question!
When Managed Print Services is done right, you should save, on average, 20-30% on your printing costs - so when it comes to choosing your Managed Print Services partner, it's important to conduct some research into the way the provider operates.
We recommend that when choosing your supplier, you check whether they can support large-scale Managed Print Services projects. You should look for business' who have 10,000 to 15,000 printers under their Managed Print Services program.
A good Managed Print Services provider should have the team, skills and reach to manage thousands of devices across multiple locations. This becomes even more crucial if you are a business which operates from more than one site.
It can be possible that some Managed Print Services companies consist of just one person. Simply shipping out toners is not a fully Managed Print Service! A good Managed Print Services supplier must have dedicated teams across a variety of departments to ensure your devices are fully managed correctly and so that processes can run smoothly.
The bigger picture:
It's important to look at how Managed Print Services providers are striving to be more environmentally friendly. Things like reducing the amount of energy or paper your printer uses with specialised programming, software solutions and proactive monitoring are all ways in which you can help do your bit for the planet.
