Managed Print Services
1-3% of annual revenue is spent on print activities”

The 21st century office is dominated by electronic communications but printed output is still widely used. As offices have installed new equipment to create hardcopy output, such as copiers, printers and multifunctional devices, many have unwittingly created a fragmented, unmanaged print environment.
Unmanaged print environments create a drain on IT support, office management and procurement resources. Implementing a Managed Print environment can typically save organisations up to 30%.
The print environment is one of the biggest uncontrolled costs in the modern office. Whilst other key office services are now outsourced, allowing organisations to focus on their core goals, the print environment remains relatively unmanaged. As print costs can represent up to 3% of organisations annual revenue it stands to reason they are next in line for greater scrutiny and control.
