If you are a business owner, you have probably questioned the necessity of managed services. These days it seems like there is a managed service for just about every business practice or process.
If you already have a secure multifunction printer, you might be wondering why you need managed print services. Here are just some of the many reasons.
Without managed print services, someone in-house must manage your print fleet. That task often falls on your IT staff, who, undoubtedly, have other pressing matters. With security at the forefront of concerns, wouldn’t you rather your experienced IT staff focus on network oversight and security, rather than dealing with printers and copiers?
Most small-to-medium businesses have limited resources, particularly when it comes to information technology, and managing the business printer and copiers is no small job. Don’t force your IT staff to deal with management, supplies, services, and all the rest.
In addition to the fact that without MPS you will waste staff time, you will also waste money. Whether it is your IT staff or another department, someone will still need to research and diagnose problems or setbacks. On top of that, there are the expenses of the required parts and repairs, plus the losses associated with the downtime while your printer or copier is being fixed.
With managed print services, your service partner will handle all of that (and more) for you. By monitoring your print devices and practices, we can keep abreast of changes and often thwart a setback before it occurs. In the event something does fail, we are on hand with parts and repairs to get you up and running again as soon as possible.
The costs associated with printing are challenging for many businesses. Monitoring your print enables you to budget better and allocate money to other business areas. If you are in the Madison area and need help with MPS, contact us to get started.
