Today’s business leaders recognize the value of shared services, significantly providing a wide range of enterprises with the sophisticated tools they need to compete with big business, while additionally driving costs down. But an area often overlooked in our tech-savvy world is the fundamental print service; a discreet amenity in any organization, but nonetheless essential to its operation. However, the management of traditional print services in an organization is a drain on IT teams, expending skills and time that should be providing more value elsewhere.

Managed Print Services

Printing can be a distracting burden in any organization, and with IT staff already struggling to control many other evolving technologies, there’s little time left for the advancement and security of printing technology. Enter the innovative Managed Print Services (MPS), actively managing a business’s printers for increased productivity and reduced costs. A leader in the field, HP indicates that office printing costs can be reduced by up to 30% when their products and services are appropriately implemented, with processes improved and efficiencies increased through targeted print strategy. Effective MPS also addresses the critical issue of security, much acknowledged when data is in its virtual form, but overlooked when in its physical printed output where unauthorized access can result in leaked confidential information.

MPS, when executed correctly, provides new and reliable printers which help increase productivity, and security monitoring and management solutions to help identify Vulnerabilities. HP asserts that organizations are able to establish unified, policy-based approaches to protecting data, strengthening compliance, and reducing risk; MPS connects the ‘print function’ with a digital approach to workflows and processes for better business control.
