We Take the Printers Off Your Plate!
“Optimization” isn’t just a big word. As a major facet of managed print services, this methodology of right-sizing an organization’s print environment will have more benefits than the number of syllables it has.
Among the first things an MPS consultant analyzes during an assessment are how many different device types exist and where all that hardware is situated. Businesses are often surprised to learn they’ve accumulated a host of standalone devices, which are expensive to both operate and maintain. This leaves many businesses without the right mix of hardware and device placements that aren’t ideal for their actual usage and employee locations. Discovering where single-function hardware should and should not exist in a print environment will deliver a strategic cost-saving rationalization. It also involves identifying where multifunctional products—capable of printing and digitizing documents—can be utilized for their ability to streamline or even automate business processes.
Of course there are exceptions, such as executives who each have a printer in their office or people with a printer in their respective cubicle because they handle sensitive documents—these are necessary for business operations, and MPS consultants can appreciate that. But in most situations, the reasons that an organization should move toward a balanced printer and MFP model outweigh those for sticking with standalone devices.
