By Wendi Hopewell, Sharp – Despite all the talk of the paperless office, over the past decade even more businesses have become aware of the benefits a managed print services (MPS) program can deliver. Printing remains essential, with almost half of companies surveyed telling Quocirca print will continue to be important through at least 2025. However, due to the COVID-19-induced acceleration of the hybrid workplace combining in-office and work-from-home employees, print deployments are being reevaluated.
In the hybrid work environment the proper execution of MPS is more important than ever, as organizations need workers to focus on the real business of the company rather than worry about the management of printers and copiers. It also becomes necessary to reexamine the floor plan of printers and copiers to identify underused/overworked machines, and determine if more printers are needed than copiers to promote social distancing.
Let’s take a look at the essential points of MPS.
