Is MPS the Productivity Driver You Need?
Efficiency is always a top priority in the workplace, especially as technology and a fast-paced world have increased the demands on modern businesses. Managers and C-level executives are always throwing around the idea of efficiency: how can we improve performance while maintaining quality? For most businesses, it can be difficult to find the bridge between a conceptual discussion and a practical solution.
Managed print services can be that bridge for a growing number of companies. Managed print drives efficiency in ways that many other solutions can’t, mainly because it targets an area that many businesses struggle to keep productive and waste-free: printing. Here’s why managed print services are a key ingredient in an efficient workplace.
Managed Print for the Modern Business
There are plenty of ways to push productivity higher in a company—hold fewer meetings, keep workflows clear and concise, use the appropriate tools, and increase collaborative opportunities in the office. But the print environment factors into almost every part of a business’s daily operations: accounts payable, invoicing, meetings, payroll, marketing, and more. Because of this, the print environment is an ideal target for increasing efficiency and reducing waste.
For many companies, this is easier said than done. Most businesses don’t have accurate information about how much they print each month—some have no information at all—and thus don’t have a starting point to reduce their waste. Managed print starts with an assessment and overview of what your company’s current print practices are and how they can be improved.
Here’s what a typical managed print services rollout looks like.
- Assessment: During the evaluation phase, your services provider will install print accounting software and take inventory of all workflows, devices, and procedures your office uses.
- Planning: With this information in hand, your services provider will present a proposal to improve and overhaul your print environment.
- Implementation: With the help of your IT team, your managed services provider will implement the new plan.
- Optimization: Finally, your continued relationship with your MSP will grow as they help you optimize your print environment for the best results.
