Managed Print Services

Print Management has been the mantra of the document management industry for the last decade, but what does it mean?

MANAGEMENT: The act or skill of CONTROLLING and making decisions about a business…

As every equipment manufacturer has jumped on the bandwagon, they have formulated their own definition, largely based on the same business model used for multifunction devices. A simple program which monitors volumes and includes toner replenishment. For manufacturers wanting to enter this evolving business, this was a homerun. There would be very little investment as they were already collecting meter reads. The question is, however, besides a small reduction in toner cost, can print management provide any other benefit?
