How to Choose The Perfect Managed Print Provider


How do you choose the perfect managed print provider? It's not always easy, especially when there are so many variables to consider--but luckily, there are a few tips that can make the process a whole lot easier. Let's take a look!

Getting Started

The first and most important step in choosing a managed print provider is understanding your own needs and goals. Your business is unique, and you're the one who knows it best--so, before you can decide which provider is right for you, you'll need to be able to communicate exactly what you're looking for (and what you're hoping for, too).

Once you've done a little self-reflection, it's time to get started. Here's how to choose the perfect managed print provider!

Step 1: Let them assess your print environment.

A managed print assessment can tell you a lot about what's going on in your workflows and printer fleet, but it can tell you more about the managed print provider. What are their values? How interested are they in learning the specifics about your unique company? This is a good way to get a feel for each provider's style.

Step 2: Do your homework.

Understand what you're expecting from your perfect provider match, and then ask those questions. Do they offer remote monitoring? How quickly do they answer calls? What are their security procedures, and how do they plan on protecting your printers and data?

Step 3: Make sure they can keep up.

A managed print provider who understands where you are now also needs to be able to keep up with where you'll be later. If they don't offer solutions that can scale up or down as necessary, they're not the right fit for your business.
