What Does it Cost to Forgo Managed Print?


When it comes to business solutions, there's always a lot of talk about what things cost. However, it can be just as beneficial to take a step back and ask what it would cost not to have the solution--like, for example, managed print. Let's see what impact an uncontrolled print environment could have on your budget!

Good News and Bad News

Let's start with the bad news first: without managed print your business could be losing money in ways you don't even notice.

Here are a few examples:

  • Inefficient devices

    Without managed print to help you analyze which machines are carrying their weight and which are falling behind, you may never realize that your fleet has some bad eggs--and who can blame you? You don't have the right usage data and information to make a confident, informed decision.

  • Flawed workflows

    When you get used to a workflow, you go a little blind to the details--and you might not realize you have extra steps, bottlenecks, or other flaws. Even if you do, you might not have the tools and solutions to clean up your workflows without causing more inefficiencies elsewhere.

  • Unknown costs

    If you don't know what it costs to buy the right supplies in the right amount, print in black and white and in color, and make an average copy, then you're probably losing all kinds of money--and it can be hard to track down these types of issues.

Now, for the good news.

Luckily, managed print can help you clean up these costs while being an affordable solution itself. By analyzing your environment with a print audit and reporting back with all the data, information, and transparency you need, managed print allows you to take control of the big stuff while leaving the little details to your provider. Your budget, your employees, and your company overall will never be happier.
