Offering customers managed print services helps drive results within their organizations.
Managed print services (or MPS) is the monitoring and provision of printing needs by a third-party service provider. Depending on the agreement, payment to the provider may take the form of a per-subscription or per-page payment. Any agreement places each device under a monthly maintenance or management contract that includes all consumables and parts potentially needed for repair.
A good MPS provider is more than an outside vendor. They are part of the customer’s team, being available and offering customized solutions and expert advice that frees up IT departments and management. In conclusion, they make printers basically invisible until it’s time to print.
Having a third party oversee a company’s printer ecosystem makes sense beyond freeing up time (and reducing headaches), especially when you consider these statistics:
– On average, printer repair costs are three times higher than the price of a new printer.
– Printer costs are just below rent, payroll and fixed office costs.
– Two-thirds of offices do not track their printing expenses.
– Three percent of a company’s revenue is spent on paper (at an average of 10,000 pages per office employee).
All this doesn’t even take into account the huge environmental impact of poorly managed print. Managed print services significantly improve all of these statistics. In fact, effective managed print services can reduce business costs by 20-30%, as well as potentially improve document security and an office’s environmental footprint.
With Nubeprint, through an ecosystem of data collection agents, you can offer these services for all types of customers, large, medium or small, for business or home use, on automatic replenishment subscription models or on cost-per-copy contracts.
And all this, with products for distributors that guarantee independence and autonomy from manufacturers, since Nubeprint supports printers of all types and from any manufacturer.
Undoubtedly, managed print services are not a fad, but part of the commercial success of businesses. Statistics reveal that the managed print services market is growing, and is expected to reach $58 billion in revenue worldwide by 2025.
