MPS Defined

MPS or Managed Print Services is a program that streamlines printer management, monitors usage and minimizes cost associated with printing. MPS programs work to minimize costs by supplying you with the quality technology your business goals require and monitoring the use of this equipment to see where performance changes can be made.

Many MPS programs save organizations money because they allow employees to focus on their priorities by leaving printing technology responsibilities to experienced professionals who perform these tasks on a daily basis. There are many components involved when you enter into a Managed Print Service program.

1MPS Phase 1: Initial Assessment

Each MPS program begins with an assessment of your current print technology and your desired business goals. This allows us to understand your current printing costs. An assessment should be performed to uncover inefficiencies and identify cost saving opportunities.

Document productivity, distribution and output are some of the last un-audited expenses in an organization, yet its expense is up to 6% of total revenue of an organization. Through comprehensive analysis of your print environment, there is a potential to reduce the cost up to 35%, while increasing work productivities. One of the best parts of the assessment is that it depicts, in an actual dollar amount, the estimated savings your company could experience.

2Technology Overview

During the initial assessment we will inventory your current equipment. This includes documenting the types of printing devices, the number of devices, unique models, age and if the device is networked.

The results often surprise many organizations. This is because many organizations lack an overall strategy for their print environments and equipment purchases are made as needed, without regards to any long range plan.

3Services and Supply Audit

Among the hidden expenses of your print environment are the costs of purchasing and internal support. During an initial assessment we will gather these costs, with your assistance, in order to reflect the most accurate summary of your total printing costs.

4Purchasing Cost

The number of vendors you purchase from affects your cost. The more vendors you have the more likely you are to have excessive cost used to process purchase orders and invoices, provide internal user support and maintain each device individually.

Also, equipment models variety usually adds to your vendor quantity. The more variety you have, the more supplies you will have to stock, plus each will likely have its own services and maintenance policy or contract. This typically increases cost related to IT support, procurement, administration, supplies inventory management, spoilage, obsolete inventory and more.

Ameri-Tek will assess these costs and take them into consideration when proposing changes for improvement.
