Managed print can make a big difference in how your office operates and even on your bottom line. But are you getting the most from the service? Follow these tips when you start out to ensure you’ve got the right people for the job of print management.
1. SELECT THE RIGHT MANAGED PRINT PARTNER
This is the most important. Research your potential business partners before you sign a contract. The best businesses will be open about what they offer, they will be flexible with your needs, and they will have data available to back up their claims.
Discuss potential problems, as well. How quickly do they usually respond to repair requests? Do their service offerings meet your requirements (for example, if you are a 24-hour business, do they have service availability then)? Are they easy to work with at the beginning? Read reviews as well, to fully understand how the company operates.
2. PRIORITISE ESSENTIAL SERVICES AND IMPROVEMENT
To take advantage of the best print management services, don’t just invest in what it can do for your now. Select a company that moves forward with technological advancements and believes in consistently improving products. That way, you’ll get everything you need now, and when the next big things come out, you’ll already be on board – no hassle, you’re just ahead of the crowd.
3. EVALUATE CURRENT PRINTING PROCESSES
You know best what your business needs. To get the most out of your MPS, complete a detailed assessment of your processes and how you currently use your devices. Understand how printing operates throughout the business and what requirements you have for environmental sustainability, security, and access. Communicate your findings precisely to ensure that your managed print provider can match your needs.
