What are Managed Print Services?

Managed print services basically use computer software to observe print activities within a business. In doing so, the software is able to identify patterns in print behaviour and then come up with ways this behaviour can be improved to reduce waste and overspending. Accurate implementation of such as service should, in theory, cut print costs down by up to a third. It should also predict appropriate times to order supplies, like ink or paper.

What are the Benefits of Managed Print Services?

Aside from reduced bills, there are many other benefits of managed print services. You will be able to understand how each employee or department use the printer and incentivise those who need to be less wasteful. In limiting waste you will reduce your impact on the environment.

What’s more, you will be able to improve security on sensitive documentation. Follow me printing is a feature of managed print that ensures a print job is only released once the user enters a unique code or scanned a card. This means that classified documents aren’t printed and forgotten about or left vulnerable for someone to look at or steal.

Another great feature of managed print is the on-screen notifications offered. This is great in work environments where there are lots of printers because it will let the user know if one of the printers is too busy and re-route it to another one. This will improve productivity as it will stop staff from loitering around the printer to wait their turn.
