Printing can be an expensive but integral part of business operations, even in the modern workplace. A managed print agreement can help save money, save time and improve efficiency.
A managed print service usually involves either purchasing or leasing good quality business printers and then paying a low cost per page which includes:
- Ink/toner and other consumables
- Parts, repair, and service
The printers can be anything from powerful desktop devices to floor standing devices with multiple expansion modules. You can set up an agreement with one or more devices.
For most businesses that do a lot of printing, this is a much cheaper and more efficient way of managing print in comparison to buying a low-cost printer, ordering for your own toner and maintaining your own equipment.
Monitoring systems detect when your printers are low on consumables and replacements are automatically dispatched to you before you run out. When there is a fault, typically an engineer will come out the same or next working day. These costs are all included in the agreement.
As with finding a good outsourced IT support provider, it can be difficult to find a managed print provider that offers competitive pricing and most importantly; excellent customer service and support. After years of trying various partnerships, Labyrinth now work with one key vendor that we can confidentially recommend to our clients.
If your print volume is very small and we don’t feel that we can save money and improve efficiency, we will be completely honest and you will have no obligation to proceed after our initial review (free of charge).
