A managed print service is a programme offered to manage your printing devices. It enables your school to improve efficiency, productivity and security, typically by monitoring usage, replacing consumables and meeting your printing needs.
Save time and improve efficiency – printing and copying on old hardware or poorly configured software can be frustrating. Also, the time spent on fixing devices and replacing ink cartridges can be time consuming. A managed print service can identify these problems and include plans to reduce the hidden waste of your staff’s time incurred on these tasks.
Reduce costs and save money – a thorough print audit and assessment can identify ways to consolidate your hardware, as having too many devices scattered around your school will cost more to maintain and use up space and electricity. A print expert will have the ability to identify ways to make savings.
Improve productivity in your organisation – printing needs can vary so an assessment of the schools current and future needs should give the managed print provider information to recommend a tailored programme for the staff including specific document printing and formats used regularly.
Reduce capital expenditure and improve cashflow – the cost of purchasing devices can be daunting but a managed print provider can offer flexible payment options. Pay-per-print models with leased hardware is a perfect solution for schools so there isn’t a huge one-off bill every five years.
Reduce your environmental footprint – reducing the amount of paper, electricity and print consumables you use is all part of being a responsible citizen. With monitoring in place as part of your managed print package, you should be able to identify and track levels of print usage so you can intervene and reduce your environmental footprint.
