The OEM stated that the service can “optimise your print fleet and cut down your cost through smarter print management”, noting that “identifying your hidden costs can be a difficult task in complex organisations”, and claiming that its MPS services can “significantly” reduce costs, with the aim of driving “down your short, medium and long term costs from an investment and operational perspective, increasing the efficiency of your devices, whilst also reducing your printing and impact on the environment”.
The OEM’s “wide portfolio” of products can help “address the needs of workgroups of different sizes by installing the right device in the right place, ultimately reducing the amount of time spent on print retrieval and wasted output and improving staff productivity”. This is done by providing “the correct balance of desktop printers, workgroup devices and large centralised units based on the needs of your organisation, eliminating any negative impact on productivity”.
It highlighted “how much time can be wasted and the potential cost impact to a business”, including that the average time spent “on print retrieval per person, per month” is 44 minutes, while the average cost of this is €20.82 ($22.12) per person per month. In turn, when this is taken up to 500 workers a month, it becomes €10,411.50 ($11,061.94), and over five years mounts up to €624,690 ($663,716).
OKI’s perspective is that you are “benefiting your business” through using its MPS, as “the optimisation of your printer fleet can provide considerable savings across your business”, and “ensuring that your printers are being put to best use and located in optimal positions within the workplace, will help to improve your employee productivity, so less time is spent on print retrieval and wasted output”.
The service also includes Smart Support as “an integral part”, offering “peace of mind” and a “complete service […] through continuous monitoring”. The OEM can address “any maintenance issues and faults, notifying you immediately, and also provides consumables when needed”, with “regular detailed reports” available for “real-time information on the status of your devices”.
Additionally, its “dedicated account managers are available throughout the whole process and ensure your staff are adequately trained and confident using our easy-to-use software”, concluding that the Smart MPS programme “not only facilitates the management of your devices and consumables” but also advises “on the right mix of devices and where they should be located to increase productivity”.
