Top 3 Objectives of an Assessment:

We find opportunities to consolidate.

sample mps assessment findings screen captureEmployees like the convenience of desktop printers, but it's often at the expense of the bottom line. Generally, a lower recommended volume on a device equates to a larger the cost to operate.

By reducing the number of desktop devices, the reduction in device management and consolidated volumes will show significant savings.

We make recommendations to standardize.

As organizations grow, new devices are often introduced to the old device environment. In a mixed environment, the management of each of those devices varies, from the different parts and supplies they require, to the types of solutions you can use for visibility of and reporting on your fleet usage. By standardizing device platforms, management is simplified. 

We evaluate space & location.

Since strategically placed, departmental devices are less expensive to operate, right-sizing systems throughout your office will increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Understanding the total cost of operation is the key to developing the strongest print management plan. To learn more about how your business could benefit from our Managed Print Services, contact us today or request a meeting here.

Meridian's Managed Print Services are flexible in that we can include either your existing devices or brand new, state of the art output devices, or a mix of new and old. The mix can be black & white or color devices.

Once our analysis is completed, we'll provide you with one cost-per-print amount that includes:

  • All consumable supplies, including toners, drums and maintenance kits
  • All repair and preventive maintenance labor
  • All parts — from fuser units, transfer kits, waste toner bottles, rollers, paper guides — everything
  • Guaranteed response times and uptime guarantees

You define the number of prints per month, resulting in a monthly flat fee. Under this plan, devices are network enabled and will automatically submit meters to our invoicing system. Invoices are itemized per device, and you receive no additional charges for the number of prints you have defined. There are no hidden costs and tracking print-related expenses becomes much easier.

The difference between the available Managed Print Services options (new equipment vs. existing equipment) is brand new devices generally have increased functionality, better reliability and lower operating costs.

The Benefits of In-House Production Printing vs Outsourced Printing

Modern print technology has made it possible to produce large volumes of high-quality printed material right in the office. Depending on the size of your office, and your organization’s needs, print solutions are available in-house that in the past were only found at professional print facilities. In fact, print technology is so good now, particularly the multifunction printer (MFP), that many commercial print shops use the same machines found in many offices.

So, aside from the availability of professional equipment, why are many businesses now considering bringing production printing capabilities in-house?

Read on to learn more about the factors involved when considering in-house production printing vs. outsourced commercial printing, including:

  • Cost savings
  • Security
  • Control
  • Convenience and timing
