A Guide to Managed Print Services For Small Business

Posted by Glenn Gibson July 30, 2015 at 10:00 AM

If you’re a small business owner shopping for a printer or printing solution, you’ve probably heard about Managed Print services (MPS). MPS involves entering into a contract with a third party for the management, maintenance and support of your printer and its consumables.

Research has shown that a MPS contract can reduce printing costs by up to 30 per cent, in addition to reducing time wasted on ordering consumables or dealing with technical issues. When designing an MPS environment, your IT provider can also work with you to identify existing processes that can be improved, for example by automating manual document workflows or introducing mobile print.

Managed Print Services are usually charged on a monthly cost per page basis (which can be as a low as one cent per page for black and white or 10 cents per page for colour), in addition to renting a device, which means there's little initial outlay. Alternatively, your provider may charge a monthly service fee, plus device rental, based on a minimum number of colour and mono pages per month. The typical MPS contract is usually five years.
