It's one thing to ask what managed print can do; it's another thing entirely to ask what it can do for you. Since managed print is such a personalized solution, one that looks a little different in every industry and every business, it's that second question that makes the most sense--so let's find out what managed print can do for you!

The Secret Weapon

What makes managed print different from all those one-size-fits-all solutions that treat your business like something out of a cookie-cutter? Simple: the print audit. A print audit sounds a little intimidating at first, but in reality, it's just a way for you and your provider to get a better look at your print environment as a whole. You'll get all kinds of valuable information about what makes your company tick--from the number of print jobs to usage data to reports on where exactly your print budget is going. This transparency will help you make informed decisions about which solutions to implement, which tools to try, and how to use managed print to your advantage.

For You

Now on to the big question: after a print audit, what does managed print do for you? Let's find out! Your printing costs will be reduced. Depending on your print habits, a managed print provider will recommend a huge selection of solutions to save money without interrupting efficiency. For example, maybe you've been printing in color too often or hitting "print" when you could be using a digital communication tool instead. Your security will be strengthened. Every company has different security needs. Managing print helps you understand how all of your machines and your network all work together to recognize and address vulnerabilities you might not have noticed otherwise. Your workflows will be optimized. Your workflows are as unique as your business. With managed print, it's easier than ever to see what's working and what isn't--and with that information, you can cut out unnecessary steps, plug in new tools, and choose solutions that are the perfect fit for your needs.
