In a world full of business solutions, managed print stands out--and for a good reason. It's affordable, efficient, and flexible, and it can help you achieve your goals even outside the print environment. Still, it does require a little homework on your part--so is managed print really worth it? Let's find out!


It's true: all print solutions require homework. They need to be researched, set up, and integrated--and chances are there will be a little troubleshooting here and there. Managed print is no exception, but the difference is in the type of homework you'll have to do. Take, for example, the print audit. This is usually the first step of any good managed print program, and it's great for analyzing your strengths, weaknesses, needs, and challenges, all while providing usage data from every corner of your print environment. Your job is to take those insights and decide how you want to put managed print to work. Essentially, your "homework" is to personalize managed print so that it fits your company inside and out.
