Managed Print Services

Managed print, or MPS (Managed Print Services) is the new buzz phrase of the industry and everybody’s talking about it. If you are new to the concept, it simply means managing your organisations printing to give you the lowest cost per copy possible, while automating your supplies, reducing your wastage and maintaining your fleet of equipment to the highest standard.

As part of a Managed Print Service, we can also introduce clever software to monitor, teach or even restrict certain types of printing.

A managed solution can also offer higher security for your confidential documents, give you the ability to become more mobile with your printing, and can even greatly reduce your organisations carbon footprint.

Temple Knight have a highly trained managed print specialist team who can help you assess your current fleet, advise on key changes and then implement a bespoke managed solution for your organisation.

But don’t take our word for it, check out the video and case study that was written about Temple Knight by Utax in 2016. The study shows how we took a household name business with over 70 assorted devices, with an average colour cost per copy of 10.94 pence, and then reduced them down to 44 devices with a significantly lower cost per copy.

The results, “In the first two months alone 18% less physical printing took place and nearly £10K was saved. Colour output has been reduced from 63% towards 50%”

Document security

If security is key to your organisation, a managed print solution could be what you need for your printing fleet. We can offer different levels of security as part of an MPS, including pin code clearance and swipe ID cards that will only release your documents when you are at the printer. Software can even be used to block printing at certain times, which would allow you to disable printing outside of your usual office hours. To find out more about document security, please call 01732 860 900 or click here to email us.

Printing that follows you

Sometimes referred to as follow me print, is a great feature that we can introduce through an MPS to allow you print your documents at any printer within your building connected to the mobile print system, regardless if they are even on the same floor. Simply go up to any printer and enter your pin or swipe your card to release your print job. This is a great feature if your usual printer is busy, not available, or even if you are in a different department and want to use their printer. It also allows you to route large print jobs to high volume printers for a faster printing speed.

Environmental impact

A managed print solution can greatly reduce your environmental impact and carbon footprint, by controlling how you print and cutting down on your paper and toner wastage. Intelligent software can be customised with countless rules to ensure your users print double sided where possible, or only print in black and white to cut down on your colour toner use etc. It can also be set to delete jobs that have been duplicated in error, or delete them if they have not been claimed by the user within a set amount of time.

Wirelessly printing from a smart phone or tablet is a great feature that allows you to print emails, documents or even pictures when you’re on the move.

Print audits

A print audit is a great way for us monitor your current requirements, and then advise you on the best way to achieve this at a lower cost. Using our remote software, we can take a snapshot of you fleet to see key information like the equipment make, model and current meter readings. We then do the same again at a later date and compare the results. Using this data, we can analyse your current printing structure and estimate your printing over a month, quarter or even a year. We can then advise you if you are using the correct equipment, or if it would be more cost effective for you to upgrade your fleet to equipment with a lower cost per copy. At this point we can also advise you if a software solution would be beneficial for your organisation. For more information on print audits, please call 01732 860 900 or click here to email us.
