This type of Managed Print Services solution includes not only supplies replenishment, but also preventive and break/fix maintenance services as well as measuring and managing print volumes on each device. In either case, the objectives for implementing an MPS solution typically include reducing costs and improving efficiencies. You maintain control, we take on the risk.
