What’s included with a Managed Print Service?
Evaluate company print requirements
We evaluate aspects of the client’s requirements, including printing, copying, faxing and scanning. We do this to help businesses understand what is being printed from where, and if you have any unnecessary or overworked devices. It can also identify what is being printed and whether it is a necessity to print.
Aiding with desktop printers
An important beginning step to MPS is identifying the use of local or desktop printers, as they can be costly compared to multifunctional print devices. These printers are rarely networked, making them inadequate for a typical business environment. They also often take ink toner cartridges that are costly – causing purchasing issues.
Combining printing devices for businesses
Evaluating company print management can also showcase where businesses may have too many multifunctional devices. We can identify where companies are not using devices efficiently, saving costs by reducing the amount of devices to be maintained.
Placement and efficiency of print devices
This can have a significant impact on what is being printed. We help organise your devices by making them accessible for an appropriate amount of employees – reducing the amount of employees to one device as a workflow solution. We also identify which devices need replacing with a more efficient solution.
Through MPS, automating toner supplies has never been easier. Aurora Managed Services monitor all print devices and will ship new toner when devices are running low. This frees up time from ordering and ensures devices do not run out of ink. You can order toner with us here.
Mobile printing environments
Providing mobile printing allows employees to access devices, even out of the office. With hybrid working, cloud-based printing and mobile printing services are more necessary than ever.
