You buy a copier, you feed it paper and toner, and it just works, right? Well, believe it or not, printing is one of the most misunderstood parts of business. Every company prints, but only a few have total visibility into what, how and the cost of what they’re printing is. Below are some statistics that may shock you.

A managed print service (MPS) partner will be able to help you gain visibility into your printing infrastructure, tighten up security and compliance protocols, reduce your printing volume, and make sure you know what you are spending on print.  These are scary statistics to brush under the rug; at the very least, you should have a print and workflow assessment performed on your company to begin getting an idea on your business’s printing situation.
