What is Managed Print Services?
Managed Print Services (MPS) involve managing hardcopy device fleets (copiers, printers, multifunction devices, and fax machines in a unified fashion.)
Money is wasted in all sorts of ways you don’t see: Unnecessary devices, wasted resources and inefficient hardware. High-paid staff spending precious time on simple printer issues and endless hours are lost dealing with different suppliers and vendors. With MBE’s Managed Print Service (MPS), you can optimise your entire output set-up.
