Is Your Printer a Time Saver or a Money Waster?

Most small business owners don’t pay much attention to their printers until it’s time for a replacement – and as often as not, that replacement will be bought in haste due to a time crunch, not because it’s the best machine for long-term cost savings.

Certainly, printers purchased at big-box stores will do the job of pushing paper from desk to desk, but what about in the long-term? Printing is an essential part of the daily routine for virtually every office. If you’re relying on your multifunction printer (MFP) to move information throughout your organization why not spend smarter and choose the MFP that’s right for you?

Managed Print Services (MPS) Can Ensure Savings

·     Start with simple tweaks such as cutting down the number of documents you print. A knowledgeable MPS provider can show you if you’re spending unnecessarily and help you adjust your print environment to be leaner and more efficient.

Select Partners that Understand Your Specific Business Needs

Getting the full value of your investment means working with the right partner. One who will take the time to:
