The demands on the office printer are changing as businesses are bombarded with increasing sources of information in this digital economy. To take back control, businesses turn to managed print services to proactively manage the business’s print devices, including desktop office printers and multifunction printers. Transparency Market Research, a global market intelligence firm, says that the print services market is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 14.8% between 2016 and 2024.
Provide big-picture visibility
Your employees manage and share large amounts of data, but if it's trapped in paper form or bogged down in outdated workflows, you're not making the most of it and are probably causing an information bottleneck.
Many organisations claim they have no way to measure the true cost of their printing environment and, as a result, feel that they can’t control it. Nothing is further from the truth – there is a way to look deep into your printing environment. Through the use of managed print services, you can get the most out of your printing environment. Xerox’s managed print services allow users to receive the total cost of their print fleet and gain a better understanding of their workflows. Xerox’s industry-leading assessment tools securely capture data to provide your organisation with accurate costs and visibility of your floor plan to get a clear picture of what’s happening in your day-to-day operations. This helps you to manage your network print resources more efficiently.
Sustainability at its finest
Managed print services reduces the amount of paper that you use, improves the security of your document journeys and automates any slow processes. When you optimise your printer fleet, it significantly reduces the amount of paper, electricity and toners that you use. Using a multifunction printer will eliminate surplus printing devices. Proactive alerts let you know when supplies are running low or if the printer needs your attention. Because of the remote control and visibility that managed print services make possible, your provider should be able to monitor your entire print environment offsite, ready to fix a problem before you or your employees are even aware of it.
Partner with the best
Businesses are often unaware of the total cost of ownership of their devices and may be spending more on print than they realise. Managed print services are often outsourced because this is not the business's core competency. The top priority of the business is managing it, not optimising its print environment – so you can leave that to us.
