A Brief Introduction to Managed Print Services

Is your business was wasting money on unnecessary expenses? If you are, you probably don’t know it because otherwise you’d take immediate action to keep more of your cash. The problem is, many businesses are spending 30-40 percent more than they should be on one key business expense, printing and can be resolved through managed print services.

“Printing” is an often overlooked and unmanaged area of business, but it encompasses much more than many people think. There are many costs associated with business printing, and they can add up if you’re not careful. Printing-related expenses equal the total cost of managing, optimizing, and maintaining your printers, their output, and the staff, supplies, and processes that support these devices. This includes:

  • Capital costs for all desktop printers, multifunction printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines
  • Cost per page for all printing devices
  • Parts, supplies, and consumables (including ink and toner, etc.)
  • Outsourced printed materials (flyers, posters, banners, mailings, etc.)
  • Service and maintenance, including help desk support, technical service, and maintenance
  • In-house IT staff that manages, repairs, and orders supplies for imaging devices


When you add up the total cost associated with business printing, you might be shocked to learn printing expenses can account for up to 6 percent of your total revenue. Whether you’re a small, family-owned business or a burgeoning enterprise—that’s a lot of money! Adding to the problem, many companies utilize several desktop printers for convenience and never keep record of the costs associated with these smaller devices.

But, there’s a simple solution designed to help your business monitor your printing activities while saving you time and (more importantly) money. It’s called Managed Print Services (MPS), and it will help you gain visibility and control of your printing.

What is Managed Print Services (MPS)?

MPS is a managed services program designed to streamline and optimize a company’s print environment by shifting the management and responsibility of device monitoring, maintenance, and supplies to a trusted solutions partner, like Monster Technology. After an initial assessment to determine where inefficiencies exist, recommendations will be made and changes will be implemented to improve the efficiency of your printer fleet and the productivity of your staff.

MPS provides real results so your business can save money, and your employees can focus on critical tasks, instead of printers. It’s an easy way to reduce frustration and administrative costs while increasing the productivity of your valuable IT staff—that often spend up to 25 percent of their time managing and maintaining your company’s output devices.

Functions and Benefits MPS clients receive:

  • Proactive monitoring of all print devices

  • Regular maintenance and on-site service

  • Automatic fulfillment of printer supplies (including ink and toner)

  • Detailed reports outlining print usage and device efficiency

  • Improved document workflows

  • One consolidated monthly invoice covering all printing expenses

MPS not only helps control printing expenses, but actually ends up saving the average client up to 30 percent on their total printing costs. Isn’t it time you stopped wasting money and made a smarter choice for your business by switching to MPS?
