Pushing Paper: Finding the Right Solution for Printing
In today’s competitive market, controlling overall costs is a business priority. But finding new ways to drive down costs without impacting business productivity can be a challenge.
One cost center that businesses may overlook is printing. Printing is often decentralized, leaving departments to make their own decisions about hardware, maintenance, supplies, and use. However, studies indicate that managing your printing fleet holistically can save you upwards of 30% on printing costs. And the savings increase considerably when the scope of work includes automating paper-intensive workflows.
Incorporating Managed Print Services
Managed print services (MPS), which are provided by external parties, optimize print infrastructure and document output. With an MPS strategy in place, your equipment aligns with your business goals, and your day-to-day printing becomes predictable, with minimal disruption.
According to research and advisory firm Gartner, office printing consumes 1%¬¬–3% of a company’s annual revenue. With MPS, you can streamline your print operations while reducing print and copy expenses. Additionally, MPS can simplify invoice processes to make it easier to manage costs and facilitate budget planning.[/mp_code] [/mp_span] [/mp_row]
