Why Do You Need a Print Assessment?

Why Do You Need a Print Assessment?

How much do you spend on printing? Would you be surprised to learn that most businesses, including yours, spend up to 15 percent of their overall budget on printing? If you’re looking for ways to reduce expenses, take a closer look at this budget item and how managed print services can help.

What Does Printing Include?

“Printing” is a broad term, but its obvious costs include ink, toner and paper, along with the purchase or lease of all multifunction and personal desktop laser printers, copiers, fax machines and scanners. Others that don’t come to mind so quickly but still impact printing include:

  • All pages printed by office and home-based workers, satellite offices and production processes
  • All materials “sent out” for print, including offset and quick printing, mailing and distribution
  • IT resources used to manage printers, including maintenance and technical services

Managed Print Services

A print assessment looks at these uses to understand your business needs and suggest changes that can increase workflow and save money. Managed print services make it easy to monitor these costs on an ongoing basis as well. You pay a monthly service fee and pay-for-use printing and managed print services does the rest, including maintenance of office equipment and supplies. That makes it easier to get your arms around this printing category and realize a more efficient process that saves both time and money.


Our team would like to thank SVOE for the great service you have provided since we received our new printer/scanner/copier. You suggested the right printer to suit our needs and budget.
