Do you have a clear picture of your retail company's printing costs? Do you know how many printers and copiers make up your fleet and how they're being used? Do you know how many prints each retail location generates in a month's time? Each of your retail locations depends on their printing equipment for daily operations, but lack of oversight may mean you're missing out on a long list of savings opportunities.
Why It's Important to Know
Managed Print Services providers routinely conduct print environment assessments for retailers, collecting valuable statistics. Read on to find out why it's so important to know what's going on in your print environment.
- Opportunities for savings —Printing is often overlooked in budget assessments, falling into miscellaneous categories due to a lack of supervision. Managed Print Services companies investigate ways to deliver savings by eliminating waste, deploying tracking software, and helping retailers use their print resources more efficiently.
- New efficiencies —Retail printing requirements vary from product labels and shipping manifests to full-color wide format signage. Your print-related workflows require a high level of professional oversight; decisions like which equipment is best-suited for the job to when to use paperless document management can all impact your workflows. Managed Print providers can help optimize your print-related processes, getting added value from your printers and multifunction systems.
- Equipment and supply management — Printer fleets require hands-on management and Managed Print companies have the expertise and tools to bring them under control. Proactive equipment maintenance and automated supply procurement are just two MPS solutions that deliver improved productivity and increased savings.
