What is managed print?
Managed Print Services are programmes offered by print providers to manage your print devices, including printers and copiers. They enable organisations to significantly improve their efficiency, productivity and information security, typically by monitoring usage, replacing consumables and meeting the organisation’s printing needs. The features of managed print services vary by supplier, but they can offer many of the following benefits to organisations large and small.

How we do what we do…
Step One is to analyse your existing cost structure – including the costs per page, user, device and workgroup – and then continue to monitor these areas as we build a solution around your business. It is essential to measure and monitor the true costs of creating documents, often a large proportion of these costs are hidden. This helps you to understand exactly what gains have been made and where the potential exists to create further efficiencies.
We streamline your company’s print operations by implementing a “balanced deployment” technique to ensure the right device is in the right place using the least number of devices as possible. We look at reducing waste by establishing which of the standard features of the suggested devices will help and if more can be achieved by using a third party solution.. The ultimate goal is to generate sustainable long-term savings as well as immediate cost reductions.
Improving security – Even accidental interception of confidential information (documents left lying in a printer’s output tray, for instance) can have unfortunate consequences. Deliberate attacks are even more dangerous. The review we perform and solution we propose gives you exactly the levels of security that you need, be it controlling access to each device right through to providing a fully secure document infrastructure, complete with a detailed audit trail and the storage of data at a secure ISO certified cloud facility.
