The use of printers in an office is something that every business needs to keep business going. Every employee will eventually need to use one, and any downtime with those printers can cause untold problems in the office. However, there are problems with office printing, and many of these can be solved with managed print services (MPS).
Maintaining Office Equipment
One of the biggest costs associated with running printers is fixing them when they break. This doesn't have to be a regular occurrence, however, when you use managed print services. With these services, the printers are maintained regularly, and any problems that begin to develop can be fixed before it becomes necessary to have a lot of expensive repairs.
Ordering Office Supplies
In many offices, the IT department is responsible for taking care of the printers and all of the supplies they require. However, this takes time away from IT functions, and it can put a computer system at risk. It also means that if there are a lot of computer issues to take care of, the right supplies may not be ordered and installed in the printer on time. That means printer downtime as well as a loss of productivity. MPS takes care of all of the ordering and installation of supplies like ink, toner, staples, paper, etc. It's a great way to keep the printers up and running without worrying about IT productivity.
Keep it Going
Perhaps the best thing about managed print services is that it keeps all of the printers up and running. There is no need to put off printing documents or creating reports for a meeting when you know that the printers are reliable and fully stocked. This can also be a boost to employee morale, as the employees know that the effort has been put in to keep the essential machines running. With all printers working as they should, there is no need to outsource any printing needs, and this saves money for every office that uses it.
