Channelling the benefits of Managed Print Services for SMEs

An intriguing article by examines the pros and cons of channelling the benefits of Managed Print Services for SMEs.


The managed print services (MPS) market is seeing unparalleled growth – and it is still maturing. Perhaps this is no huge surprise – it allows companies to save two of the most precious business assets: time and money.

Recent research by IT analysis firm Quocirca revealed that around half of large enterprises are now using some form of MPS, with strong pick-up among larger enterprises. Smaller organisations, to date, however, have been slightly slower in adoption rates – this is surprising, given the obvious benefits.

Quocirca estimated that around 20 per cent of small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe were still using basic print services in 2014. Perhaps this is in part due to a lack of knowledge about the benefits? Industry reports show that 75 per cent of SMEs rely on printing to support their most important business activities – therefore, managing printing costs and improving functionality should be a core concern.

By completely outsourcing the management of printing infrastructures to a managed print specialist, companies of any size can reduce over-expenditure on time and money, in addition to eradicating ongoing problems such as maintenance issues and concerns about downtime.
