Managed Print Services is a hot topic in the business world today. The Managed Print Services Association defines MPS as “the active management, and optimization, of document output devices and related business processes.”
Printing costs are one of the largest unreported expenses for a business. According to industry analysis, print related costs can eat up as much as 15% of an organization’s annual spending, and 90% of companies do not track how much they spend on producing and maintaining documents. Companies are very concerned with the acquisition cost of a new printer. Everyone is looking for the best deal when they buy a new printer. Very little consideration is placed on the total cost of ownership however. Devices that are inexpensive to acquire are often very costly to operate.
Printing is not only very expensive, but it has a huge impact on the environment. The average worker prints 10,000 sheet of paper each year. 8,333 sheets of standard letter paper (8.5 x 11”) equals 1 tree (40 ft. tall and 7 in. wide), so on average, workers are killing more than 1 tree by themselves each year.
