Managed Print Services is about more than just printers. It’s everything related to printers, their output, supplies and support, the way you use documents, and the people and processes that intersect each of these. 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. See? Outstanding.
How MPS Works
We use a proven, three-step approach toward improving your printing processes:
1. Assess and Optimize
In the first stage of our relationship with you as a client, our experts use best-in-class tools and processes to create an accurate baseline of your current spending. We design a solution that reduces your costs and supports your sustainability goals. We’ll look across your office and production environments to create a holistic view of your document needs. Our award-winning technologies provide the accurate information you need to take action.
2. Secure and Integrate
Once your printing is optimized, we ensure everything is connected to your IT environment in a secure and compliant way. We turn on solutions for printing from mobile devices and provide print queue management. Our approach integrates into your existing IT environment and network with minimal disruption, so MPS becomes a more welcome part of your business.
3. Automate and Simplify
Migrating you to higher levels of print and document management maturity--including converting paper-based workflows to digital, and re-engineering processes for greater efficiencies--is the third stage of next-generation MPS. We call this stage “Automate and Simplify,” and this is where things get really interesting. We offer services and technology that take workflow automation beyond just scanning and digitizing paper documents and go deeper into real business transformation.
