Many businesses have some reservations about making changes to their printing processes. This is common. After all, change is hard. But, even top-level decision makers can be hesitant about making the switch to MPS because it can be difficult to separate the myths from the facts.
In order to clear some of the fog surrounding MPS, we’ve busted some of the most common myths surrounding MPS below.
Myth 1: MPS is too expensive.
MPS might, at first, seem like a frivolous expense. After all, “Managed Print Services” even sounds expensive. However, one of the major goals of MPS is to help businesses achieve significant, long-term savings. MPS can be easily customized to your business, so this myth really has no grounding in reality. No matter the size, MPS can help your business save money by reducing printing expenses by up to 30%.
Myth 2: MPS will interrupt workflow.
Many businesses are resistant to integrating MPS into their business environment because they believe it will disrupt the company’s workflow and will cause more trouble than it’s worth. But the truth is that MPS actually simplifies operations of the entire print fleet while minimizing interruptions to the company’s workflow. MPS is designed to free up more of your employees’ time. With MPS, your admin staff won’t have to spend time ordering consumables, troubleshooting error messages, or maintaining your devices—that will all be done for them.
Myth 3: MPS is just an up-sell.
MPS is not just some fad—it’s a legitimate solution that allows businesses to focus on core competencies. Top businesses who have adopted MPS into their workflows have found that its benefits are significant and permanent. Gone are common inefficiencies and overly complex printing environments. MPS will streamline your print processes and maximize the efficiency of your entire team.
Myth 4: My IT staff does just fine.
In reality, your IT staff is probably already stretched too thin. With MPS, your they can focus on more important projects, instead of tending to a jammed printer or updating the settings on your multi-function device. MPS proactively maintains your printer fleet, freeing up more of your IT staff’s time.
Myth 5: All of our printers are essential.
No, they are not. A common misconception is that there are few costs associated with personal printers. But, smaller machines are inefficient, wasteful, and can chew through costly consumables quickly. With an MPS solution, your standalone devices would be replaced with fewer, more efficient machines, targeted for specific tasks—resulting in the ability to control printing waste and reducing consumables across your entire organization. MPS provides a solution that’s good for your budget, your workflow, and the environment.
