Don’t just take our word for it, read what Managed Print Service industry experts have to say...
  • "Managed print contracts come with a wide variety of options, but most start with a service provider’s assessment of the organization’s current infrastructure to determine exactly what equipment is in place and how much it costs the business.

    Sometimes this can be an eye opener. According to the tech analyst firm Gartner, organizations spend from 1 to 3 percent of their annual revenues on printing. “But when you talk about how much they spend on print, they often don’t have a clue,” says Chris Iburg, director of managed print services for Xerox. “That includes how many devices they have and how the devices are being used.”

    Managed print services can be most beneficial for organizations that are highly document intensive. Law offices, for example, may see a savings of 41 percent with the right managed service, according to research firm InfoTrends, while financial firms and healthcare organizations can expect an average savings of 33 percent and 27 percent, respectively."
  • MPS or Managed print services is a professional service offered by third-party service providers to help organizations attain a cost-effective and well-managed imaging and printing environment. MPS is an efficient way to manage and optimize the document output devices and other related businesses. MPS involves monitoring, regulating, and improving the printing sub-structure of an organization. MPS is facilitated by some of the key software that includes offerings such as print management software, device management software, design and development software and scan routing software.

    Increased usage of eco-friendly printing solutions is one of the major trends driving the growth of the market. Increased awareness about the harmful effects of carbon footprints and benefits associated with the use of paperless printing are influencing organizations to adopt these printing solutions. MPS helps reduce carbon footprints as well as total cost of ownership. Small and medium businesses and large corporations are increasingly investing in green print software.
  • With changing times, the managed print service (MPS) market too continues to evolve. MPS is no longer restricted to device consolidation, it now facilitates efficiency in business and paper-dependent processes. While many organisations are still in the early stages of implementing MPS, according to some market reports about 20% of the organisations are planning to use MPS within the next year, reflecting the growing maturity of the market.

    Further, as more and more businesses enter the second and third phases of their MPS engagements, expanded services and solutions that support broader process automation initiatives are proving to be key differentiators amongst the leading MPS providers.

  • Despite the transition to a digitisation of paper workflows, many organisations are struggling to integrate paper and digital information. A recent Quocirca study amongst 210 organisations revealed that 40% of organisations plan to increase their spending on workflow automation, but that there is also much progress to be made – and it is primarily those that use a managed print service (MPS) that are most confident of their digitisation initiatives.

    Organisations remain reliant on printing. Quocirca’s research reveals that overall, 30% of organisations view printing as critical to their business processes – this rises to 73% for financial services, followed by 41% for the public sector.  Given the financial and environmental implications of a continued dependence on printing – not to mention the inherent inefficiencies with paper-based processes – 72% of organisations indicated that they are planning to increase their digitisation efforts, and many are using their MPS providers to support this transition.
  • Almost half of all enterprises plan to expand their use of Managed Print Services (MPS). It is a proven way to reduce costs and improve the efficiency and reliability of a business’ print infrastructure

    Printing remains a core element of many business processes. Research by Quocirca reveals that overall, 30 percent of organisations view printing as critical to their business processes. This rises to 73 percent for financial services, followed by 41 percent for the public sector. Left uncontrolled, this can lead to escalating costs – both financial and environmental – as well as exposing an organisation to potential document security risks in today’s age of governance and compliance.
  • "Quocirca research reveals that enterprises place a low priority on print security, despite over 70% admitting that they have experienced a print-related data breach. The loss of sensitive documents can have a huge impact on any business As well as the financial and legal consequences of data loss, the impact on a company’s reputation and loss of customer confidence can be enormous. And, as can be seen from stories in the news, some companies may never recover from a major data breach.

    While many businesses look to safeguard their laptops, smartphones and tablets from external and internal threats, few pay the same strategic attention to protecting the print environment. Yet it remains a critical element of the IT infrastructure. Over 75% of enterprises in a recent Quocirca study indicating that print is critical or very important to their business activities."
  • Document Management System (DMS) and Managed Print Services (MPS) are becoming important. Majority of the enterprises opt for both or one of these services because of the agility that it brings to the business. Since users are adopting these technologies on a global scale, several trends are emerging in the document management market, influencing decision-makers to select one vendor over another.

    In the competitive business environment, DMS and MPS are the most sought after technologies — they help businesses stay agile, reduce costs and boost productivity.
