Many new Customers commonly ask: “what is managed print services?”  The answer is: Managed Print Services is how we help you optimize, manage, and improve printing and digital workflows while helping you improve efficiency and productivity while controlling the expense of printing.  Three of the basic steps are:

Step 1: Analysis and Consultation:

First, we gather information using the most appropriate tools and analysis software. A site-visit to study your workflows, understand your needs and calculate your print and copy volumes leads to an initial cost-benefit analysis. Depending on the results, we’ll perform a full audit of each workgroup, its equipment, supplier base, support issues and security needs. With all the information to hand – mapped against accurate floor plans – it’s time for Stage 2.

Step 2: Optimization and Improvement

We’ll help you understand where the weak spots are and where immediate gains can be made. Workgroup by workgroup, machine by machine, you’ll see which resources are being under-used and which pushed too hard; We’ll then apply this knowledge, working with you to devise a plan which delivers the maximum benefit with minimum disruption. Then we’ll put everything in place – equipment, supplies management, cost and usage reporting, security – and keep it running smoothly in the next phase, Stage 3.

Step 3: Management and Service

With everything up and running, we’ll keep a continual check on costs and productivity: not just meter readings but real time information about operating status too. Often, we can remotely diagnose and fix issues before they have an impact. And because we know how much each machine is being used we can make sure you always have just the right amount of ink and toner. And as your needs change over time, we’ll work with you to make sure your printing infrastructure keeps pace.
