Managed Print Services and being in control

Managed print services take many shapes and forms, with different Irish print companies all suggesting different approaches to the subject. In reality the only honest way to keep control of your printing is:

1. Finance your multifunction printer whatever way you like, ie:

  • Outright purchase
  • Lease over three years or over five years

2. Agree a fair cost per page with your supplier. The total maintenance cost of the multifunction printer will include:

  • Inks
  • Parts
  • Labour
  • Initial setup
  • Support along the way

3 Pitfalls in Managed Print Services

1. Convoluted contracts which not only tie in clients’ finance of the machine, but also commit clients to a set amount of “service charges” years in advance.

2. Being prescribed to a set amount of colour and black and white prints to be ‘included’ in the price of the machine. This one is difficult because a ‘uniform monthly amount to be paid’ is an accountants dream, but clients will always end up paying for something they do not use.

3. Not demanding a warranty of 3-5 years, depending on machine size. If this is not in writing anywhere, it is highly probable that the multifunction printer which clients are being prescribed will not have the suitable capabilities for what they need.

What our Managed Print Services mean for your business

In an ideal world, the best thing a printer or multifunction device can do is sit in the corner and work properly all day, every day. Unfortunately, we do not live in an ideal world and this is where our managed print services comes in. It is designed to save you time, money and heartache.

Agreed cost per page
It is based upon you paying an agreed cost per page (which we will commit to not changing after a few years – more than we can say for what is regular in the market). This cost per page will include: – all inks, – all parts, – all labour, – all set up and – all support as required.

Printer(s) running smooth
Somewhat at odds with most other suppliers in the market, we will only ever use Ricoh brand inks and parts (no generic inks!). Our one of a kind service package means that your printer will always run as smoothly as a printer possibly can.

Managed Print services, the personal way

Our first step in a managed print services consultation is to discern whether we would be a good fit for your company or not, so as not to delve excessively into product. When we quote it is because we have found out straight from the horse’s mouth what is needed. Depending on what a client’s existing set-up entails, we can either handle the entire IT set up process or liaise with the existing suppliers to ensure a swift transition. We then meet as often as necessary with our partners to ensure that our system is working the way it should.

Our promise to you and your business

We pride ourselves on providing the best managed print service in Ireland, and our key promises to you and your company include:

  • When you call our office you are greeted by a human, not an answering machine
  • We will only ever bill you in arrears on exactly what you have done. It is the fairest way – you cannot predict how your company will look in 5 years, so we sure can’t.
  • We will always endeavour to get to you as quick as possible when you call for a service (our average Dublin call-out time is below 3 hours).

Printer Leasing Terms

We can cater for various lease durations with the most common being 13 quarters or 21 quarters in length. We do not use balloon payments or convoluted terms and conditions, preferring to make transparency in finance our priority.

At the end of your lease term
We try to keep things as mercurial as possible, so at the end of your lease you will have 3 options:

  • Upgrade the machine for the newest version and ensure you are up to date with the greatest and most reliable machines.
  • “Buyout” your lease for an agreed percentage of the original lease value, leaving you with ownership of the printer/copier.
  • Return the printer back to the leasing company.
    (Nobody tends to choose option 3!)

After 3, 4 or 5 years you will (theoretically!) trust our judgment on which plan suits you best for the future.
