The Midwest Business Products' Print Management Program
Our Print Management Program provides complete management of your existing printer fleet including consumables, parts and service support at the cost equivalent or lower than your current consumable expenditure alone.
Has managing your fleet of printers been a proactive or reactive exercise within your organization? Up to 3% of a company’s revenue is spent on printing documents. Despite that significant outlay, very few companies have a comprehensive print management system in place. Most companies’ printer fleet has just kind of evolved over time. Printers have been added to react to a particular need or situation. Few companies have sat down and mapped out a print strategy.
Most companies can’t tell you how many PCs, Copiers or Multifunctional devices they have and what their costs are. Yet while printers have a high operating cost, many companies are in the dark about the number of units they have, how they are used, and their cost of operation.
Take Charge with our Print Management Program.
What are some of the challenges facing companies with multiple printers?
- Knowing what the cost per page of each device is?
- Printer fleet that is of varied ages - composed of different models requiring different supply items.
- Fragmented responsibilities of staff - Purchasing Department may be responsible for supplies while IT is responsible for deploying and supporting printers.
- Determining if the right jobs and the appropriate volumes are being printed on the most suitable devices with the intent of preventing printer sprawl, load imbalance or having too many printers, some of which are idle 99% of the time.
- The expense and cost of accounting for and paying multiple invoices for service and supplies from more than one vendor.
Let us Help with our Print Management Program
We will start with a comprehensive assessment of the current state of your printer equipment and utilization. We will look at page volumes, supply cost and service cost data. We will also talk with the users of your printers and MFP’s to look for bottle-necks and areas currently negatively impacting workflow.
Once we have collected and analyzed all of the data, we will make our recommendation. By tracking your print volumes and searching out inefficiencies, we will be able to make recommendations that could not only provide a significant savings but also the amount of time your IT and Purchasing staff spend on print management.
The most common source of the savings is in consolidation of equipment. As new printers are added often times older units are redeployed or kept for redundancy. Older printers have a higher supply cost than newer units and are more expensive to repair. Newer printers and multi-functional devices are faster than older units, allowing more users per device without long wait times for output. Also introducing multifunctional devices with scanning can help eliminate unnecessary print output and associated cost.
Our Managed Document Print Services includes management of your existing fleet and any new equipment, along with on-site service support and training as well as remote monitoring of supplies so we can automatically send toner and other supplies before you run out. We provide a transparent, easy to understand program that will allow you take control of your printer fleet and overall print costs.
