MPS Monitor announced that Weaver & Bomfords, the office supplies business, has standardised on MPS Monitor 2.0, to enable its clients to drive greater efficiencies from their print, while enjoying greater insights into their print volumes and costs.
The Cheshire-based business, which can trace its roots back almost a century to 1922, offers its clients solutions and services ranging from photocopiers and network printers to Managed Print Services (MPS) and Document Solutions.
Sue Lenton, Managing Director of Weaver & Bomfords, explains why MPS Monitor 2.0 was chosen for its needs. “We’re always looking at how we can offer our clients value, and by providing an outsourced print management solution from MPS Monitor we can remove their print burden so they can get on with running their business. From a customer’s point of view, they haven’t got to maintain or manage toner supplies as it simply gets delivered and marked up for the right machine, so they know that it will be there as they need it.”
MPS Monitor makes data and information easily accessible, without the need for detailed technical knowledge in order to be able to access the information and reporting data. MPS Monitor makes it easy to get a proper snapshot of a fleet’s status. “It’s really easy to find the information that you need. Overall, MPS monitor offers us much more by giving you a business management tool that can be used easily,” Sue added.
An additional benefit of MPS Monitor is that it offers customers multi-connector availability so it can run on more than one device. As long as the connector is installed, users can see devices and the network hierarchies.
Furthermore, integration with third party applications ,like CRM systems, is another MPS Monitor strength, as Sue established. “We were quite an early adopter of MPS Monitor and we were using it with Asolvi Vantage. At the time, there wasn’t actually an official connector for us. But MPS Monitor listened to us and developed one pretty quickly and then helped us to get it set up. The integration with MPS Monitor made the complex process of changing from another provider straightforward. They also helped us to perform a bulk update to minimise the tasks involved.”
Commenting on the deployment, Nicola De Blasi, CEO of MPS Monitor, said “Many businesses are recognising that the pandemic has changed how we print and how we view print, especially given the hybrid working model that many businesses have adopted. This calls for a new, flexible approach to print monitoring if print is going to be secure, accountable and under control. Weaver & Bomfords is a shining example of how a company can accomplish that using MPS Monitor, even under the challenges and uncertainty of a pandemic. We’re very excited about our relationship with Weaver & Bomfords, and how it will flourish in the future.”
With its cloud-based architecture, vendor-agnostic approach, security focus, and direct integration with HP Inc.’s Smart Device Services (SDS) and Microsoft Universal Print (UP), MPS Monitor is ideally suited to meet the evolving needs of the hybrid workforce.
