There are all kinds of things to learn about managed print--what it is, what it does, how it benefits your business, why it's worth the money, and more--but sometimes the best place to start is the very beginning. Let's take a look at the first step in managed print services!
First Things First
Although managed print looks a little different for each business, one thing does remain the same: the first step. "Square one" in managed print is always a print environment analysis, which is exactly what it sounds like--a careful, in-depth look at the way your company prints, communicates, and utilizes paper. Your managed print provider will gather data on everything from supplies to printer maintenance to security concerns--and then, once the analysis is complete, you'll have all the information necessary to make great decisions for your business.
Benefits of a Print Analysis
So, what does this first step do for your budget, your workflows, and your future? Let's find out!
- Cost savings
When you have all the data right in front of you, it's much easier to see where you're wasting money--and, of course, what you can do to fix it. Managed print identifies problems in your workflows and supply management and helps you implement solutions designed to fit your unique needs.
- Security improvements
A print analysis gathers information about all your machines and networks as well as how they're being used, which means you can catch security vulnerabilities before they become huge problems. Even better, managed print can provide solutions that keep you safe without slowing you down.
- Increased transparency
It's not always easy to reflect on your own habits. A print analysis provides valuable transparency that can help you understand what you do and why you do it--and, if anything seems wrong, you'll be able to track problems right to the source.
