Managed print services should be more than just about keeping the toner flowing. It’s an opportunity to make your business smarter, greener and more secure as part of a broader IT strategy.
In fact, we think it’s essential because your printers, copiers and other imaging devices are now smart devices with processors, memory, hard drives and proprietary operating systems and applications. You should be taking advantage of their document management features to improve your workflow. In the process, you’ll become a more sustainable business. Most importantly, however, is that these devices store sensitive business information that needs to be secure.
Any managed print services offering today should take more than a “toner and drum” approach. It should include products, transition services, proactive monitoring, security, supplies fulfillment, software and hardware upgrades, and onsite and remote support backed with custom Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that align with your business needs. By keeping in mind your IT strategy when you update your print environment, you can take advantage of the three most compelling reasons for adopting managed print services:
Document management and workflow: By digitizing and streamlining paper-intensive business processes, you can increase operational effectiveness and boost business results because you’re able to minimize human error and simplify information access.
Security: Complete visibility and control of your imaging fleet means complete control of your sensitive data too. You can eliminate storage of data on the device and secure transmission of data to all devices, as well as control who can print what and where.
Sustainability: Visibility and control enables organizations to reduce paper use, pollution from toner and petroleum products, and the use of earth metals and plastic.
As with any managed IT service, you can take the pressure off your own people and let them focus on more strategic projects, while at the same time streamlining your costs by eliminating the upfront expenditures equipment and supplies and paying on a cost-per-impression basis.
