Does Managed Print Services really save businesses money?
Let’s take a look at two businesses. One is on an MPS (Managed Print Services) plan and the other is not. The company without MPS purchases re-manufactured* toner cartridges to save money. Let’s say this toner costs $100, yields 2,500 pages, and the toner on each black & white print covers 5% of the page; they pay 4 cents per page. A black & white print with 20% toner coverage costs them 16 cents! Any maintenance or service required is an additional cost.
Meanwhile, the company on the MPS plan doesn’t worry about yields or toner coverage, instead, they pay a flat rate of 2 cents** per black & white page with maintenance and repairs covered at no additional cost.
