It’s no secret that Managed Print Services have a lot of benefits to offer businesses, particularly in the new era of work. With an integrated, company-wide print solution tailored to your specific needs, you can expect better security, improved mobility and more flexible usability to enable your hybrid workforce.

But with so many providers vying for your attention, how do you ensure that you’re choosing the best Managed Print Services for your business?

We’ve identified five features that the best MPS solutions all have – what we call the 5 S’s of MPS. Savings, security, scalability, service and sustainability. With these in mind, you’ll be able to quickly sort the good from the bad to identify which Managed Print Services solution will offer your business the most benefits.

5 features of the best Managed Print Services.

1. Savings

One of the first things to look for in an MPS solution is cost-savings. Printing is typically the third highest cost to businesses after payroll and rent. Reducing this financial burden has been a central goal of MPS since its inception, alongside improved visibility and also reducing the workload of IT teams.

Before developing a tailored solution for your business, your MPS provider should conduct an audit of your print and document environment to identify where they can help you streamline processes, reduce waste and consolidate your resources to reduce costs. This will also help you determine approximately how much you are currently spending on printing, if you’re not already aware, allowing you to compare the benefits of MPS with your current print solution.

Kyocera was able to help TNT Express reduce their monthly printing costs by 38 percent by consolidating their print fleet and providing a simple cost-per-copy MPS solution. With the right provider, you could also achieve savings like this too.

2. Security

Printers are one of the most overlooked security risks in the workplace, especially with the increase in remote working. When managing numerous devices across a wide range of locations, as in hybrid workplaces, IT teams may find it challenging to ensure that each device has an appropriate level of security, and that employees are also using secure practices.

An MPS solution will reduce your business risk substantially, offering complete visibility over every device in your fleet, no matter its location. In the initial audit, your provider should identify any security vulnerabilities that you have and how they will address them. This usually includes initiatives such as implementing anti-malware software and security features across your fleet, real-time threat monitoring of device networks, or user authentication and authorisation.

3. Scalability

As well as being secure, the best Managed Print Services are rapidly scalable, enabling your infrastructure to easily grow, shrink or transform as your business needs change. With a single provider and an MPS network designed for growth, increasing your devices, print volume or service requirements will no longer be a convoluted or lengthy process.

Your MPS provider will already have an in-depth understanding of your print environment and be able to make appropriate recommendations, as well as respond quickly to your needs. Additionally, you shouldn’t have to worry about complex set-up, integration or training requirements for your new devices – a good provider will also be able to add new printers to your existing network with minimal disruption.

4. Service

One of the many benefits of MPS is that it consolidates all your providers into one point of contact for all your printing needs – devices, consumables, maintenance, repairs. This ensures you receive the same quality of service from someone who knows your business and print solution, each and every time.

Additionally, MPS also improves productivity by reducing how much time your staff need to spend on managing your devices. With Managed Print Services, you can expect your provider to automate consumable orders, upgrade old hardware, install the latest software, and also conduct staff training on how to use and troubleshoot devices as part of their normal service. With the time saved from the hassle of print problems and delays, your staff will be free to focus on work that actually contributes to your business goals.

5. Sustainability

A commitment to sustainable business practices is increasingly the minimum expected by consumers, rather than an optional extra for companies. So it’s good news that MPS can not only improve your bottom line, but also reduce your environmental footprint.

The best Managed Print Services help businesses to use their resources more effectively, minimising waste and enabling greater control over print usage. This also includes reducing or eliminating inefficient toner usage, single-sided printing, paper wastage due to poor print jobs and other inefficiencies you may not be aware of. Optimising and streamlining your processes will also minimise any unnecessary printing, saving consumables and power consumption. And with true oversight of your print environment, you and your MPS provider will be able to identify where your biggest areas of print usage are and develop new strategies to minimise your environmental impact.

With these five features of the best Managed Print Services in mind, you can identify which providers are offering solutions that will truly lead to improvements in savings, security, scalability, service and sustainability for your business. And with the right MPS solution, you’ll be ready to maximise your business’ productivity, mobility and efficiency in the new era of work.

Kyocera Printer Reviews

Kyocera Printer Reviews.

Kyocera Printer Reviews. When you start researching Kyocera copiers and printers, you can quickly see a few recurring themes. They’re proven to be highly reliable, exceptionally cost-efficient and ahead of the pack when it comes to sustainability.  This review is going to cover what you need to know about Kyocera as an organization, their line of copiers and printers, as well as a few expert opinions on how well Kyocera devices perform.

In 2018, Kyocera was named the Most Reliable Colour Copier MFP Brand 2018 – 2021 by Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab, the leading source of document imaging industry data and test results. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at what the company offers and what people say about Kyocera copiers and printers.

A Brief History of Kyocera

Kyocera is an award-winning printer manufacturer. 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of its beginning in a small factory in Kyoto, Japan. In its early days, the company focused solely on producing industrial ceramics products.

Today, Kyocera Group is a multinational manufacturer of ceramics, electronics and office technology and has nearly 77,000 employees worldwide. Kyocera got into the printer business in 2000 with the acquisition of Mita Industrial Company, which later became Kyocera Document Solutions.

Kyocera Printers and Copiers

Like most top brands, Kyocera manufactures a wide range of laser and inkjet printers and multifunctional devices that incorporate faxing, scanning, copying and printing. Overall, the printers have a reputation for being extremely reliable, economical to run, easy-to-use and capable of producing high-quality prints in large volumes.

When it comes to operating costs, Kyocera products have a unique advantage over the competition. Using their expertise in ceramics, the company manufactures its printing devices with unique long-life ceramic drums, which use less energy and heat. Kyocera’s Ceramic particles are also added to the toner to clean the drums while they’re working. This means Kyocera devices need far less servicing and have much lower operating costs than many other brands.

Why Choose Kyocera?

Here are three areas where Kyocera copiers and printers get exceptionally high marks:

Reliability

The Buyers Lab Reliability award that Kyocera won back in 2018, was for its ECOSYS® A3 line of colour MFPs. Reviewers looked at the entire line, calculating misfeeds, reviewing service calls and testing total impressions. It gave each model a 10 out of 10 and concluded that downtime would rarely be an issue with any of the Kyocera devices.

Kyocera’s TASKalfa line of  colour printers are also known for its above-average performance in image quality, speed and multitasking capabilities.

Several models were among six Kyocera MFPs included in the BLI Summer 2019 Pick Awards. BLI experts praised the devices for their reliability, performance and also value, calling them “true workhorses with exceptional reliability.”

Cost efficiency

Kyocera offers low overall cost of ownership compared to other brands. This is because of the way Kyocera  products are designed. Most laser printers have imaging cartridges that integrate a drum, developer and toner into one unit. This means that the cartridge has to be replaced each time the toner runs out.  Instead, the Kyocera printer’s ceramic drum is separate from the toner cartridge and is designed to last 100,000 pages. (up to 600,000 pages, depending on model)

On the software side, Kyocera has a sophisticated application platform called HyPAS™ (Hybrid Platform for Advanced Solutions) that can expand the capabilities of your MFP to streamline business processes and improve digital workflow.

Sustainability

The Kyocera ECOSYS line of printers are designed to reduce environmental impact and minimize running costs. Kyocera’s are built to use as few consumables as possible. This means less maintenance, lower operating costs and easier recycling of used components. Kyocera is also recognized for its climate change initiatives. The company has set a target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 30 percent by the year 2030. This goal is officially endorsed by the Science-Based Targets initiative.

The Bottom Line

Once you decide on the kind of device you need and the specific features and capabilities it must have, you’ll have little trouble finding a Kyocera model to suit your needs. And, it’s clear from the many positive reviews that Kyocera is a brand with a diverse line of products in which you can feel confident in investing.

But we understand the choices can be overwhelming. So, if you need more help, please contact one of our office equipment experts, and we will be happy to answer any questions.

The Benefits of Upgrading Your Office Copier

Upgrading your Photocopier? Your office copier is an essential piece of office machinery. If your office copier is constantly giving you issues and frequently requires maintenance, it can really slow down productivity in the office. However, that’s not the only reason to upgrade your office copier. With the right office equipment, you can upgrade your office for maximum efficiency. Here are the benefits of upgrading your office copier.

Improved Print Quality

For older printers, it’s possible to see a depreciation in the quality of your prints over time. Low print quality can also make reports and spreadsheets blurry and difficult to read. When dealing with important information, you want to make sure your prints are of the highest quality. Upgrade your office copier for print quality and you’ll see that the difference is night and day.

Better Productivity

Decease Maintenance Needs

An old office copier can cost you a fortune in maintenance fees. A major benefit of upgrading your office printer is that you’ll have little need for maintenance for the first few years you own the printer. If the monthly cost of maintenance on your copier is burning a hole in your office budget, then you should heavily consider a copier upgrade complete with a maintenance agreement.
