Managed print services (MPS) allow you to gain control of your printing.

A common stumbling block with many entrepreneurs is saving.

In many cases, you’ll find that businesses are wasting money on unnecessary expenses.

One of the key business expenses is printing, but the good thing is Concept Group can help to resolve the printing expenses through managed print services.

See, printing is often the least considered business expense, but in reality, it encapsulates more than what you might think.

Sure, it’ll not take a huge sum of your budget, but cumulatively, you’ll see it has a huge impact.

Numerous costs are often associated with printing, and it’s easy for them to add up if you’re not extra careful.

Some of the common printing-related expenses include:

  • Cost of printer equipment
  • Cost of printer supplies such as ink and toner
  • Cost per page for print equipment
  • Processes supporting print equipment
  • In-house IT staff
  • Repairs, maintenance, and replacement

Now, when you add up all the total costs associated with business printing, you can see that printing-related expenses can account for a significant sum of your total revenue.

At the same time, this “solution” will save you time and, more importantly, your money.

It’s called Managed Print Services, or rather MPS.

MPS will allow you to gain better visibility as well as control of your printing.

Defining Managed Print Services
