MANAGED PRINT SERVICES (MPS)

TRUEPRINT – MANAGED PRINT SERVICES

What is “managed print services” (MPS)? The managed print services definition is broad, but the end result is simple: gaining visibility and control of your printing, which helps you save money and boost productivity. Managed print also helps you improve environmental sustainability and document security.

By “printing,” we mean the total cost of managing and optimizing your printers, their output, and the people and processes that support these devices. Add up the costs of “printing” and it accounts for a large chunk — as much as 15% of a business’s annual spending. Through managed print services, you can outsource print management and cut costs by as much as 30%.

Verity Group’s TruePrint MPS program resolves these issues.
