What are Managed Print Services?

A Managed Print Service is where the hardware, software, supplies and service are all provided and fully supported by your chosen single supplier.

The three main phases of a Managed Print Service are shown below.

The 3 phases of Managed Print Services

Phase 1 – Assessment

This involves carrying out a review of your current print environment – i.e. devices and output volumes often utilising a Print Audit. We provide recommendations for a print solution that will save you time and money. Assessments range from basic online analysis right up to full document workflow review. Environmental impact analysis and document security assessments may also be included.

Phase 2 – Optimisation

We will help you improve your device-to-user ratios, device placement and also fine tune your fleet mix. Use of Fleet Monitoring Software is almost always of benefit. Print Management Software may be justified depending upon the situation. Print management policies allow controls and rules for copying and printing, bolstering security and also reducing costs.

Phase 3 – Management

A Managed Print Service is a continuous process of improvement. It includes regular business reviews, service level agreement monitoring and also periodic audits. In other words, we will be there for you whenever you need us.
