Growing up we imagined what the future would be like. Shows like The Jetsons sure did stretch our imaginations of the future! Likely, you imagined things like flying cars, hover boards, and a robot just like Rosie from The Jetsons. Too bad we don’t have any of those things yet to help make everyday life a little easier. Instead, we’re adults now working in busy offices and trying to stay on top of the everyday functions of our jobs. We may be years away from technology like Rosie, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t services to make your day-to-day life in the office a little easier.
In order to have a functioning office, you need supplies and quick repairs when the cogs in your printer break and need service. Online ordering of office supplies is easy and convenient, but there are so many different options that it can sometimes be overwhelming. For instance, there over 300 different options when ordering Post-it Notes, so how does one decide? While the final decision on Post-it note colors may not be costly and time-consuming, ordering print supplies can be a budget breaker. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a simple (futuristic) solution?
Welcome to the Future: Managed Print Services
Moving one step closer to Rosie the Robot, are Managed Print Service programs. With over 75% of printing costs coming after the initial purchase, Managed Print Services (MPS) is a game changer for complex office environments.
Simply put, MPS is an automated program that helps you measure, manage, and improve your print environment. It helps identify and simplify your printing workflow, improve productivity, reduce associated costs, and it does it automatically.
How Can Managed Print Services Benefit Your Business?
- Reduce office expenses by automatically ordering the correct supplies at the correct time.
- Eliminate stockpiles of out of date ink and toner
- Over or under ordering will become things of the past
- Reduce IT burdens by having an on-call service for repairs and troubleshooting
- Enhanced job tracking for accountability and accounting purposes.
- Less downtime due to reactive supply ordering
While technology has not quite caught up with The Jetsons, it’s moving in the right direction. MPS is just one way to improve efficiency and automate one of the more costly items on your “To Do List."
