Streamlining mundane, everyday tasks seems like a no-brainer for many businesses small or large, however, that’s not always the case. At UCI, you can take another thing off your plate and hand over your print services to us, the experts. By understanding what an effective Managed Print Services (MPS) program is and should do for you, you have one less thing to worry about and more time for productivity. These are the things your business should look for when shopping for a managed print services provider. 

What are Managed Print Services?

Managed print services are offered by UCI. We optimize and manage your company’s document output. We assess your printing habits, service your copiers, parts, and supplies needed to operate your machines. 

After an initial assessment, our team designs a strategy to improve your printing services and management, implements, manages, and optimizes a managed print service just for you. 

A Managed Print Service Should: Save you money!

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), “managing your printers and supplies can reduce your overall printing costs by up to 30%.”

An MPS assessment will give you a closer look at what you’re spending annually on supplies, hardware, maintenance, and the total cost of ownership of your print environment. This is beneficial in that a MPS can gauge what you truly need and you are charged based only on what you’re actually printing. 

Maintenance is regularly scheduled with MPS, so that means fewer service calls. Keeping your machines on a routine maintenance schedule prevents you from wasting time on repairs and a well-oiled copier.

A Managed Print Service Should: Offer You Convenience

Like toilet paper or laundry detergent shopping, ordering copier supplies becomes part of your routine. You tend to run out of these things around the same time each month and usually at the most inconvenient times. 

A good MPS should offer delivery that is set up to arrive right when you need it based on device alerts from each machine. You should be able to get what you need when it’s needed. No more stressing out when the printer is out of ink on presentation day.

A Managed Print Service Should: Improve Productivity 

Every business printing needs vary within each department. After an assessment of your business’s current and future needs, your MPS provider should be able to design and tailor a system that works for your unique needs.

Some examples of specific needs are being able to print from mobile devices, or even the need to print special types of document sizes and formats that are not regularly used.
