Evaluation of managed print service suppilers

With increased awareness of MPS amongst large enterprises, Quocirca believes that innovation will shape the success of larger MPS engagements, requiring  a  broader use of document workflow solutions  for business process improvement.  As the core components of MPS become more commoditised, it will be innovation and service delivery that  will differentiate  the strongest players in the market.

  • CW+: Quocirca report: Managed print services programmes for SMBs

    Quocirca believes that the use of managed print services (MPS) in the midmarket will increase significantly as more printer and copier manufacturers launch packaged services for channel partners that enable them to capture on-going revenue opportunities. Midmarket businesses are just as likely as their larger counterparts to struggle with escalating print costs, along with loss of productivity as a result of time spent on dealing with printer downtime and manual ordering processes for supplies. Fortunately, there are a wide range of simple and flexible managed print services offerings that midmarket businesses can take advantage of, depending on the scope of their printing needs.

  • CW+ Quocirca report: The evolving MPS landscape

    Quocirca believes that the use of managed print services (MPS) will increase significantly over the next two years as organisations of all sizes focus on reducing the cost, complexity and risk associated with an unmanaged print environment. MPS is growing in adoption, particularly in larger organisations, and is increasingly characterised by out-tasked engagements where flexible services are tailored to business needs. Yet there is no one-size-fits-all approach, and for any organisation tackling spiralling print costs a multitude of considerations must be borne in mind before committing to, and developing, an MPS strategy.
