Managed Print Solutions: The Best Business Decision You’re Not Making

Managed Print Solutions, Printech Solutions
In the vast sea of opportunity, searching for the deal of a lifetime can become quite daunting. So how do you find an optimum printing solution without overwhelming yourself? We will tell you how to upgrade your printing technology without the angst that 95% of businesses suffer post-commitment.

We’re all familiar with the concept of “Opportunity Cost”. It’s a profit lost when one alternative is selected over another. So how do you ensure you save on your two most valuable resources: money and time? If you are wasting countless hours researching and dealing with deadbeat salespeople in an attempt to upgrade or acquire new printing solutions, you’re truly doing it wrong! See, the opportunity cost here is you could be spending valuable time on your business, adding value where it matters. Furthermore, there are hundreds of technology providers claiming to be able to provide you with the golden ticket, a technology solution. Truth is, most of them don’t know what they’re doing, or are in this business for the wrong reasons (to rip you off).

How to avoid being conned

Rewind to 2010 when acquiring a new printing technology solution was a lot more straightforward. From 2020, the printing industry has been revolutionised by managed service printing and customisable, solution selling. You (the consumer) now hold all of the power and the cards are yours to play. We mean that you can build a solution around your business that works for your business without being pressured into buying an off-the-shelf, outdated solution.

So, what part of a solution is customisable and adaptable you ask?

  • Cost – Most importantly, you can tailor a solution to fit your budget. To achieve this, you need to get a quote from a reputable company that is flexible.
  • Service – Having a reliable partner work around your needs is paramount and without it, you may find yourself in a vulnerable position (Not recommended).
  • Maintenance – You can select a preventative maintenance plan to ease your concern about malfunction and upkeep (Highly recommended).

When engaging a printing technology provider, you must carefully articulate the value that each of them provides on each of these core competencies. You can then select the most honest, reliable, and adaptable partner who will serve you best.

Reducing your Print technolgy costs

With a global pandemic lingering, how do you establish sustainability within your business? Unfortunately, when business is slow, the first two major cuts that most business owners make are in staff and marketing. That’s a tough position to be in, but one all too common in the modern world. What if we told you there are several alternative steps you could take to avoid the first two options? Below we will share with you three avoidable traps.

Printing Set-Up:

Are you currently, or have you ever been, hardened into an agreement with a printing company that has stung you on the set-up costs of your printing solutions? Be wary of the fine print in these agreements as the exit cost or hidden fee can normally surmount thousands of dollars of lost money.

Printing Consumables:

Businesses are forever changing, and technology is becoming more and more dynamic as the year’s pass. Why burden yourself with the hassle of having to worry about whether your printing technology is working at 100%. You should look into a ‘Managed Printing Service’ plan with all of this taken care for you. Some printing companies will avoid telling you about this service as they make more money from you paying for ink, paper, maintenance etc as you go with no ongoing support provided to you unless you pay an exorbitant amount for it.

Being Practical & Well Informed:

Finally, you must choose a Managed Printing Service (MPS) partner who will represent your company as if they were your personalised cost controller. MPS companies like Printech should analyse your company’s costs, consider your current and future requirements and make cost-effective and efficient recommendations on these facts. If you’re a kinaesthetic learner and need to see and be demonstrated things firsthand, ensure you deal with a company that is locally based and has a showroom. There is no such thing as too much information so jump right in and educate yourself before making the final decision.
