Managed Print Services (MPS) is the outsourcing of the management of print devices for an organization. Most who are familiar with Managed Print Services already know the benefits of such a service versus an organization managing their own printer devices. For others, the perks may not be as clearly evident. In this piece, we’re going to look at four reasons to consider a Managed Print Services offering for a company or other organization.
1. MPS improves the security of your printing processes.
Many of us don’t think about security protocol when it comes to a print process. Because many of the printed documents remain in-house, you may not consider print security a high priority. This makes the print protocol of many companies an entry point for obtaining sensitive data for security threats and an overall cybersecurity weak point. Managed Print Services have cybersecurity measures built into every step of the printing process ranging from data encryption, security monitoring, and much more.
2. MPS can help save clients money on printer supplies.
Running down to the local office supply store or even having to figure out where to store bulk printer products is a pain for companies of any size. In order to ease this headache, Managed Print Services providers not manage the devices provided, but can also manage the consumables for those devices. MPS services include providing clients with paper, toner, ink, and much more to help keep printing easy and efficient every day.
3. MPS keeps your office printers performing their best.
There are few things more frustrating than a printer that is performing poorly or not performing at all. With Managed Print Services, any printer downtime is dramatically limited. Repair technicians can usually have broken printers up and working again in record time or changed out with a functioning machine.
4. MPS allows you to keep tabs on your entire print process.
Putting the “M” in “MPS”, Managed Print Services allows you to stay connected to your company’s network of printers — whether that means two printers or 200 printers. Receive an accurate look at printer device toner or ink levels as well as consumable usage. This overhead view makes diagnosing wasteful practices a breeze and allows appropriate modifications to be put into action.
