MPS: An Introduction

Managed Print Services (more commonly referred to as MPS) is a tried and proven approach to reduce financial and environmental costs and improve productivity.

What does 'MPS' mean?

The name 'MPS' has become a popular business term, used frequently in the print management industry. Like many industry terms or 'buzzwords', the true meaning of 'MPS' can sometimes seem vague and potentially misleading. Many companies around the world offer their own form of managed print services under the label of 'MPS' but may only sell a contract that includes the hardware, minimal repair-only breakfix servicing in some cases, the supply of consumables (toner, inks, etc.). While their efforts are a step in the right direction for providing a complete packaged service, Online only sees it as part of the solution.

Online Business eSystems believes MPS is so more than a simple service contract

- at its best it is an innovative business and service delivery model which is focused on ensuring that you - the customer - gets the best service possible across your entire fleet of devices and managed solutions. Rather than providing a generic 'one-size-fits-all' package, our team at Online work 1-on-1 with your business to develop a truly proactive MPS that can greatly increase the efficiency and reliability of your printing environment while providing the best value of services throughout the contract. We actively work with your business throughout the term of the MPS plan to continually improve the optimisation of your print infrastructure and processes.

Why chose an MPS agreement?

Businesses are under ever-increasing pressure to transform their print infrastructure in order to lower costs, reduce their environmental impact and manage risk more efficiently. Optimised sustainability is a strong focal point of an MPS agreement. With device consolidation and the use of newer, energy efficient equipment, a business joining an MPS agreement could reduce energy consumption by anywhere up to 45% at the end of the first year and a total cost saving of up to 30% for the term of the agreement. How much savings and productivity you can achieve depends entirely on your business' current configuration and your printing requirements.
