Business owners are always looking for ways to improve internal processes. Streamlining their operations allows businesses to eliminate unnecessary steps to increase efficiency and productivity, enabling them to produce more output with the same or fewer resources.
This article discusses how managed print services can help businesses improve their internal processes.
What is a managed print service?
A managed print service (MPS) is a comprehensive approach to managing an organisation’s printing needs, including printing, scanning, copying, and faxing.
Managed print services are designed to help businesses streamline their printing processes, reduce costs, and increase efficiency by pulling together all elements under the printing umbrella and delivering them as a straightforward solution. Typically, a managed print service will include the following:
- A printer or multifunctional device
- Consumables such as toner and ink
- Any additional software required, such as cloud print or document management solutions
- Regular maintenance and servicing
The benefits of managed print services
- Reduced costs – MPS providers can help businesses save money by assisting businesses to print only what they need.
- Improved efficiency – MPS streamlines printing processes and provides employees with the tools to work more effectively, improving productivity and reducing downtime.
- Enhanced security – MPS providers can help businesses protect sensitive information by implementing security measures such as 2FA, user authentication and document encryption.
Overall, a managed print service can help businesses better manage their printing needs, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.
How does a managed print service improve business processes?
- Simple invoicing – With managed print services, all associated printing costs are charged together, meaning your accounts team can pay for the entire service in one monthly invoice.
- Less downtime – Covered under the agreement, all servicing and repairs are included. When your device encounters a problem, your provider will be notified immediately, and a technician will repair it on-site – reducing downtime.
- Automatic deliveries – When your device becomes low on consumables, your provider will be notified and deliver your consumables before you run out.
