Manage your printing fleet, don’t let it manage you.

Across the industry, studies have shown that organizations spend 3-6% of their revenue on printing. That means a $5 million organization will spend between $150,000 and $300,000 on printing each year. Even spending this much, nearly 90% of companies don’t know how much they spend on office printing annually without some form of Managed Print Services plan.

Expenditures on consumables are up to 17% of operating costs. As employees return to the office and costs continue to rise, having a real expert on your side can give your company just the edge you need.

The answer to this is deploying a Managed Print Services (MPS) plan for your organization. Metro Sales provides turn-key outsourcing services designed to optimize and manage your entire printing fleet. We can help you consolidate your printing vendors by bringing it all under one umbrella. We provide service and supplies to your fleet and actively monitor it while continuing to offer the industry leading service Metro Sales is known for.

Below, we’ve outlined the major benefits of Managed Print Services, as well as the process Metro Sales follows to implement this solution. To find out if a managed print solution from Metro is right for your organization please reach out to our team at mps@metrosales.com.

Metro Sales Managed Print Service Process

Assess

We come into your office and document how many imaging units you have, precisely map where they are in your building(s), and measure the print volumes for each. With that data, we create a customized snapshot of your office printing environment.

Analyze

Using the information we’ve gathered, we create a custom Managed Print Solution for you based on your needs. We present our findings from the assessment and offer the best available options

Monitor

We help keep constant tabs on your costs. In many cases, toner requests can be handled automatically. However, our staff is ready to meet with you as often as you like to reassess the program and ensure it is still the best fit for your company.
