Prosource Tech Show Spotlight on Managed Print Services

In many businesses, document-related expenses are one of the largest unmanaged expenses. Studies show that 90% of business owners are unaware of their total printing spend[1], which totals an estimated 1 to 3% of their annual revenue.[2] Managed print services (MPS) gives you visibility and control over your business’s printing which contributes to a healthier bottom line.

A MPS strategy allows you to control printing expenses by having a provider manage your fleet of printers. Benefits of a MPS strategy include:

  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced costs
