Implementing a managed print services (MPS) strategy provides a host of benefits to organizations. The right MPS strategy from the right MPS provider not only delivers those benefits but can be a key part of your organization’s digital transformation initiative.
The core benefits of MPS will allow firms to become more efficient by enabling teams to focus on the real business of the organization rather than worrying about the performance of your printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines. Here’s a summary of the benefits MPS can deliver:
Managing your print and paper usage is one part of a good MPS engagement. If you’re pursuing a digital transformation strategy, you may be digitizing rather than printing information today. Still, a persistent paper trail needs to be managed. According to Quocirca, “despite almost 70% of organizations recognizing digitization as a key element of an information management strategy, businesses remain reliant on paper-based processes.”
By using MPS and working with an MPS provider focused on your paper and digital needs, your institution can put in place integrated policies to control and manage both paper and digital information. By conducting a complete workflow analysis on both paper and digital workflows, you and your MPS provider can find the best integration areas between the paper and digital worlds. An investigation and discovery process like that will help customize a solution that is the best, most efficient combination of products and services to meet your unique demands.
MPS may have started as a hard copy print management solution, but over time the available services have evolved to bridge hard copy and digital information management. Finding the right MPS provider that understands this will mean your organization will continue to receive the benefits of traditional MPS and be able to take advantage of the benefits digital transformation management delivers.
