Getting Started with MPS
MPS is not a one-size-fits-all solution; the best provider for your business will be one that understands your specific needs and can tailor a solution accordingly, while also providing support during every stage of a best practice MPS program:
1) Assess: Start with an assessment of your existing printer fleet, which includes surveying makes and models as well as the number and type of print devices.
2) Design: Work with an MPS consultant to establish goals and agree on a level of service for maintaining the print environment.
3) Implement: Deploy the MPS software and automate alerts for functions like consumables replenishment.
4) Manage: Software solutions proactively track and order supplies, monitor usage, and provide troubleshooting and repairs.
5) Optimize: To help optimize your printing infrastructure and environment, MPS consultants will work to deliver ongoing analysis, reporting, and reviews, including calibrating device setup and advising on the condition of the devices.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are Managed Print Services (MPS)?
According to Gartner, “Managed Print Services (MPS) are services offered by an external provider to optimize or manage a company’s document output. The main components provided are needs assessment, selective or general replacement of hardware, and the service, parts and supplies needed to operate the new and/or existing hardware. The provider also tracks how the printer, fax, copier and MFP fleet is being used, the problems, and the user’s satisfaction”.
How does MPS help with security?
Managed Print Service providers offer a vast improvement to your business’ security by ensuring your company complies with federal regulations and mandates. MPS also offers device authentication and encryption, which prevents unauthorized access to documents and networks. Advanced features such as authorized document release help ensure that confidential information won’t end up in the wrong hands — whether a cyber criminal or an internal threat.
How do I choose the right managed print services program?
Finding the right MPS provider can be difficult with so many solutions and partners to choose from.
