Workflow is defined as “the combination of tools and tasks a person or organization takes to complete a specific process.” In business, this definition holds true for all tasks, including printing. Whether printing a simple flyer, or a complex sales brochure, having the right technology can make the job more efficient. In addition to supporting your technology, a Managed Print Services provider will assess your entire print environment to ensure your processes and your technology are working together.
The Right Equipment – An MPS provider will work closely with you to ensure that you have the right equipment for your workflow needs. This often includes a combination of technology including printers, scanners and copiers. Under an MPS agreement, you’ll receive routine maintenance as well as support for your devices to keep your office operating at peak efficiency. For example, an MPS provider may employ software solutions to monitor your print environment allowing them to detect issues before they become bigger problems.
Location, Location, Location! – Ergonomics and device placement are key for an efficient workflow. Strategically positioning your print equipment to ensure easy accessibility can immediately improve workflow and office productivity by removing bottlenecks.
MPS In Action – Through continuous monitoring of your actual usage, an MPS provider will continue to refine your print environment and processes to improve employee efficiency, increase productivity and lower your costs.
