Despite digital innovation, many small to medium size businesses still rely on paper-intensive processes. In fact, a recent survey states that on average, 46% of all small businesses report that time is wasted every day on these paper-driven workflows. These same businesses seek cost and paper reductions and improved and digitized document workflows.


Print assessments from a Xerox partner


Very few small businesses have the resources to conduct their own Managed Print Services (MPS) assessments and why would they when they can ask an expert? Xerox partners, like Document Solutions, can be your consultant and trusted advisor through print network assessments and highlight the fastest routes to cost reduction and productivity increases.


Conducting an MPS assessment that’s unique to each business allows us to find solutions that meet the financial, risk, and productivity needs of our customers. This assessment provides a true overarching view of each small business’s entire print infrastructure. Assessments also highlight cost-saving opportunities through workflows, apps, and processes. 


Workflows move to the digital age


Despite efforts to reduce paper, businesses remain heavily reliant on hard copy documents that later need to be digitized for easier distribution. With an assessment, we can show you how to integrate digital and hard copy processes so that information flows smoothly, predictably, and efficiently throughout the organization.


An MPS assessment can help small businesses:


·     Create automated workflows


·     Improve collaboration and communication among employees


·     Deploy data capture solutions


·     Reduce reliance on paper


·     Integrate printing and scanning workflows with other technology


·     Mitigate risk


·     Address compliance requirements


Mobile print initiatives drive innovation and security concerns


66% of small to medium size businesses include print in their mobility initiatives and another 27% plan to within the next year. Network and data security are top concerns for IT departments, making security important in mobile printing. We can help you introduce cloud, mobile, and software as a service (SaaS) based solutions as they become available.
