How can print management save you money in the long run?

IT departments are usually very busy and don’t necessarily have the time to manage their printing equipment.  However not managing this equipment correctly can cost businesses a lot of money that could be better spent on other things.

Many businesses are unaware of just how much money they are losing by not taking a centralised approach to all of their printing needs. By centralising the purchasing, supporting and managing of printing both time and money can be saved.

Managed Print Services main aim is to help you control your printing and gain visibility of your entire printer fleet.

You may be able to save some money by managing printers in-house but the value of your time is far greater than any small savings this may provide.  

MPS can save you money in a variety of different ways.

  • By making black and white printing the default setting for all devices.
  • Giving employees smart cards which only allow devices to print when the user is ready. Pull printing can reduce waste and increase security.
  • Tracking consumables use such as ink and paper.
  • Allowing you to manage printers that weren’t managed previously like the A4 inkjet printers that can be purchased in stores.
  • Saving your team time. Your team can bring more to the business if they are not having to maintain and fix printers all of the time.
