How can managed print services benefit schools?

Close-up photocopier or printer is office worker tool equipment for scanning and copy paper.

School budgets can be tight; that’s why it’s essential to invest in a print solution that can be monitored and managed. In addition to being able to monitor and manage your output, there are many other benefits managed print can offer to schools.

No unpredictable consumable costs

With Managed Print, your service provider will receive a notification when you are low on toner, paper or ink and they will send out replacement supplies before you run out. This means there is no need to purchase consumables in bulk at the beginning of the school year.

In addition to this, your printing costs start to become predictable, which is excellent for forecasting. Furthermore, you will only receive one single invoice monthly – which your Accounts Team will be thankful for!

You can control costs

Managing your print environment and having complete oversight of your output is vital to controlling costs. Managed print services provide schools with specific data on usage, output and expenses, which is critical for decision-making and allocating budgets.

The IT Department can focus on the school’s IT infrastructure

One of the most significant long-term benefits of managed print services for schools is that their IT department can focus their time on fixing problems with computers and servers, rather than being called out to repair a problematic printer.

It is reliable

With managed print, your machines will be regularly serviced by a technician. Should you encounter any issues with your device, your provider will be notified, and an engineer will be sent out to fix the problem.

No unpredictable repair costs

Managed print services help maintain a school’s fleet of printers with regular servicing, so they are operating effectively. Generally, if a device can no longer be maintained or repaired and is within its warranty period, a replacement will be provided as part of the package.
