In an economic downturn, our main focus is managing our
budget whilst getting the most value for each dollar that is spent.
Unfortunately, many businesses are oblivious of the amount of money that is
wasted when they fail to consolidate their printing operations. They are
unaware of the number of operational printers within their organization; the
monthly spend on paper, ink and other supplementary items; or the volume of
resources allocated toward system maintenance.
Lack of visibility over these factors can leave thousands of
dollars unaccounted for. Here’s where Managed Print Services (MPS) take center
With MPS, a single provider is outsourced to oversee all
your printing operations, from setup to servicing. This gives organizations
full control over costs associated with their printing operations. The shift in
preference towards MPS is largely attributed to the sinking economic climate.
This has forced organizations to comb through all items on their budgets and
search for solutions that bring big value at little cost. Mismanaged printing
can unknowingly account for 1-3% of a company’s annual expenditure. In a
recession, this can have a detrimental impact on your revenue.
MPS allows you to predict printing costs across the entire
organization. By consolidating the spend for your consumables, you’re also
afforded volume discounts that are otherwise unavailable. Companies have
reported that with MPS, they saw the biggest costs reductions in the following
1. 40% Fewer help desk calls
25% Reduction in cost of consumables
20% Unscheduled maintenance cost reduction
10% Cost reductions in installation and upgrades
23% Average Savings through centralized
Current MPS users (60%) were found to be completely
satisfied with the cost savings achieved and an additional 25% indicated that
the cost savings exceeded their expectations.
There are other advantages to MPS that aren’t budget
related. Here’s a look at some of the benefits you can expect when you employ
and MPS provider:
Massy Technologies Applied Imaging provides a wide range of package options that can be customized to suit your
needs. Organizations that are very document heavy, such as law firms,
government offices and financial institutions can benefit most from MPS.
However, MPS give you the opportunity to downscale to suit your industry and organization
size. Your provider will conduct an assessment of your operations and will
utilize the data gathered to indicate where wastage may have been previously
occurring and make suggestions moving forward. You’ll be advised on the
equipment that’ll work best, as well as, service and maintenance options that
Larger organizations often call on their IT department to
handle their printing services in hopes of reducing expenses. Unfortunately,
this approach has an opposing effect. IT technicians can spend up to 15% of
their day on printing issues. Balancing day to day responsibilities in addition
to managing print operations, can leave service costs undocumented and spend
unmanaged. MPS is a completely outsourced program that takes the load off your
internal operations. It allows you to reclaim time and productivity levels lost
from your IT department and recover mismanaged expenditure
