Managed Print Services is about more than just printers. Managed Print Services (MPS) remains a proven approach that enables businesses to acquire the skills and expertise they require to address the cost, complexity and risk of an unmanaged print infrastructure. MPS helps you gain visibility and control of document processes and costs. This ultimately saves money, automates steps, boosts productivity, and improves document security and environmental sustainability.

MPS covers a number of service areas across three broad categories:

Assessment - a review of the current print environment to provide recommendations for rationalisation and an estimate of potential future savings. Assessments range from basic online assessments to full workflow assessments. Environmental impact analysis and document security assessments may also be included.

Optimisation - device rationalisation and consolidation to improve user-to-device ratios, and development of print policies as part of a governance framework for a full enterprise MPS, including change management, deployment and transition.

Management - continuous process improvement, business reviews, SLA monitoring, remote management and workflow improvement.
