Are you struggling with the pros and cons of in-house vs. outsourcing print management? The decision to outsource any aspect of your business is serious, and you should be convinced the investment will pay off in the long run. Here's a look at the considerations of keeping print management in-house vs. outsourcing your strategy.
- Are you spending more than you think? The cost of printing may seem inconsequential, but it's time to face reality. Your print spend may come in a strong third behind office rent and utilities. Considering that print is a manageable expense, leaving things in their current state isn't the best option. Managed print companies provide assessments to uncover your fleet's total cost of operation, so you'll know exactly where you stand.
- Do you have time to manage your fleet? Unregulated printer fleets can appear to operate without a lot of oversight. Typically, business leaders make quick decisions to replace problematic equipment. The only goal is to get back to work, and there's not a lot of time to consider TCO. Managed print companies take a different approach, proactively monitoring equipment and supplies to avoid waste and help you get the most value from your investment. The benefits include a leaner fleet that truly meets your needs and more time to run your business.
- Are you happy with your current equipment? Unless you're an expert in imaging equipment, there's a good chance your copiers and printers aren't the best fit for your requirements. A managed print partnership that gives you access to better equipment at no extra cost could revolutionize your office workflows.
