As IT professionals, we begin each day with the goal of advancing the productivity, cost-efficiency, and competitiveness of our organizations. But the truth is, most of our resources are devoted to basic, everyday tasks that keep the lights on. Things like maintaining the network infrastructure, applying patches, updating security and the like.
That’s unfortunate, since that’s not how most of us bring maximum value to our organizations. We often turn to service providers to help free up resources and allow for innovation and business process improvement. These experts can help us standardize, simplify, and centralize critical systems like storage hardware or security networks. Or, we may look to them for help with implementing cloud technologies. Now we’re talking innovation!
But lost in the shuffle, more often than not, are the very real savings associated with improving document delivery. True, most large organizations have already put a Managed Print Service (MPS) in place to handle office printing. And true, this can cut anywhere from 20 to 30 percent from the overall cost of printing. Unfortunately, that’s where most organizations stop.
The real question is: how do you get that next 20%, 30%, or greater reduction in print-related costs?
Glad you asked! Gareth Watts, who leads our team in Western EMEA, answered that very question in a recent segment on Meet The Boss TV. Click on the link below to see how you can bring innovation to your company and demand more from your MPS providers.
