All companies have office equipment. Periodically that equipment stops working and when it does… office efficiency plummets. There are four basic ways of dealing with repairing printers or copiers when they break down:
- Have your internal IT staff attempt the repair.
- Replace the device… if it is very old or was so cheap, in price, that repair is more expensive than replacement.
- Break / Fix Service on-site or in-depot.
- Managed Print Services or Print As A Service.
WHY WE BELIEVE MANAGED PRINT SERVICES OR PRINT AS A SERVICE IS YOUR BEST OPTION
Today, most companies choose a more managed approach to service. One that provides predictability of expense, a higher level of service reliability, reduction in previous costs, increased end-user satisfaction and enhanced productivity. It is a proactive / preventive model and it allows the service to evolve with your company’s needs.
With MANAGED PRINT SERVICES (MPS) or PRINT AS A SERVICE (PAAS) , Verity Group will assume primary responsibility for meeting your office printing needs. We offer custom services so our customers can focus on their core business. We monitor equipment, collect data, and streamline document management for both small businesses and large organizations with thousands of printers, copiers, scanners and fax machines across multiple locations. Our print track and control solutions will allow your staff to focus on their tasks and responsibilities, while also reducing their environmental impact.
With Managed Print Services we will provide a thorough workflow analysis and needs assessment matched with a strategic hardware and software optimization plan to insure a balanced and right-sized infrastructure, supported by proactive management of service and supplies. We will provide you with remote monitoring of your entire output fleet, in addition to monthly management reports containing volume and utilization analytics. Our optimization tools and strategies will allow you to print less and print smarter. All print service, maintenance and supplies are provided at a simple, set cost-per-page, with one monthly invoice.
Print As A Service differs from Managed Print Services, by including the printer or multi-function device as a part of the cost per page price. You can now get a print device, the required consumable supplies and maintenance service for one set cost per page. You have no upfront purchase cost for the device. In simple words, it is a frictionless concept that does not require an initial cash outlay or lease for the equipment and then the purchase of supplies and need for often costly service… you simply pay one set cost per page for everything. With PAAS is that all assets (printers, copiers and supplies) sit on our balance sheet and not on yours. And all print service, maintenance, supplies and the device itself are provided at a simple, set cost-per-page, with one monthly invoice.
