Printing is an often overlooked and undermanaged business function. Consequently, many organizations spend up to 30% more than they should on this key business expense. With software issues, inefficient printing, paper jams, and breakdowns that cause unnecessary downtime, printing costs can quickly spiral out of control. The good news is there is a simple and effective solution that can help manage your print-related activities.

Managed Print Services, also known as MPS, is a solution that helps you gain visibility and control of your printing. It shifts the responsibility (and headaches) for managing all your printers and copiers to a single external supplier with the expertise and experience you need. The goal of Managed Print Services is to bring all your printing and copying needs under one umbrella to increase productivity and improve your business’s efficiencies.

Following an initial assessment to determine where inefficiencies exist in your current print setup, recommendations will be made to improve your printer fleet efficiency and staff productivity. This may include replacing old inefficient devices with new ones, reducing the number of printers in your network, and training your personnel to print in the most efficient ways possible. Ongoing management and reporting ensure predictable billing, automated toner replenishment, and maximized uptime.

If your Greensboro, Winston-Salem, or Charlotte business needs to regain control of your printing expenditures and increase your print fleet’s reliability, contact Kelly Office Solutions today for a free, no-obligation assessment of your print environment.

Monitoring & Reporting

AUTOMATED SUPPLY ORDERING: One of the key features of Managed Print Services is that it allows us to automate supply delivery. With MPS, your printers and copiers tell us everything we need to know about their usage in your office. Therefore, we know exactly how much toner you have in stock because we know how much has been used. We monitor that usage and send you more of the supplies you need when you need them. This frees up your administrative staff or IT department from having to keep an eye on its availability. Instead, we’ll send you what you need when you need it. Automatically!

REPORTING & PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS: When it comes to remaining competitive in today’s market, most businesses rely on data of some sort to help them thrive. But when was the last time you looked at data surrounding your print environment? Our Managed Print Services solution provides real, quantifiable data about your printing and copying outputs and device usage so you can make educated, smart decisions to optimize your fleet while reducing costs.

Depending on the size of your imaging environment, you will receive service and usage reports with detailed summaries about your fleet every six months. Check out the kind of reporting your company will receive with Kelly Office Solutions’ Managed Print Services by clicking on any of the items listed below.

Type of Reports:

This report tracks all of the details of your service call history. It identifies every call that was made, who made the call, what the issue was, and when it was resolved.

This report is an important one that centers on your supply order history. You’ll know exactly how much you spend on supplies so you can budget accordingly moving forward.

This report shows how your team uses your imaging devices. It identifies top performers as well as devices that are used less frequently so you can make educated decisions about your fleet. Consider if your most utilized device is the oldest one in your fleet. It might be time to update machines to best fit your workflows. Conversely, if you have several devices that are rarely used, it may be time to consolidate. This report helps you determine next steps.

This report provides a breakdown of every printer and copier in your entire office or building. It also shows where each device is located and the exact number of copies or prints that are made from each machine. It can even determine the number of color or black & white copies being made, so you have a better handle on consumable usage and, ultimately, spending.

This report is an “executive snapshot” of the overall performance of your printer and copier fleet. In addition to providing comprehensive usage and performance data, this report goes one step further by identifying possible red flags based on overuse or age of devices and supplies a proactive plan to resolve these issues before they become headaches for your staff and hault workflows.
