While not specifically related to Production Printing, here is an interesting Infographic from Konica Minolta about some of the ramifications of not using Managed Print Services in an organisation.
The interesting thing from a production print perspective is that MPS offers print providers with a fixed and more importantly, known pricing for print. Having a known fixed cost of production means that you are always in a position to price customer jobs that are profitable.
You also have the ability to reduce the term of your agreement when you have busy periods, allowing you to refresh your technology earlier.
Why not get in touch with me to discuss if this could work in your business.
