Before You Choose a Managed Print Provider

Are you looking for a managed print provider? Wondering how to tell if you’ve chosen the right company–a company who’s interested in seeing you succeed, learning the ins and outs of your business, and putting in as much work as necessary to help you meet your goals? Before you make your choice, ask these important questions!

The Perfect Provider

The perfect managed print provider will want to work with you to understand your print environment. They’ll ask all sorts of questions, do in-depth analysis, and rely on your input to create a comprehensive picture of where you are now and where you want to be in the future–and, of course, they’ll pay utmost attention to your printer fleet and workflows. However, before you can find a provider like this, it’s important to ask these big questions:

What are your values?

It’s crucial that your provider’s values match up with your own. For example, if you want to focus on cutting costs but they’re more focused on something else, you aren’t going to agree with their methods and you won’t feel comfortable with the changes they enact.

Will your support grow with us?

If a managed print provider is only capable of helping you out until you start seeing real growth, then it’s time to move on. The ideal provider can grow with you, changing their suggestions and focus depending on your new goals.

How do you handle security?

Security is just one thing you can expect from managed print services, but seeing how a provider handles security is a good way to measure whether they’ll be a great fit. For example, if they know how to protect all of the machines in your workflow, including mobile devices, without interrupting your efficiency, you might have found a keeper.
