CPC and Managed Print—Is There a Difference?

Occasionally clients mistake their device maintenance CPC (Cost Per Page) agreement with a Managed Print agreement. While some segments of these services may overlap at times, the two are not the same.

Your Managed Print Services Agreement

Managed Print Services differs from a simple CPC agreement in several key areas. Here's our top 4 differences you'll find in the service agreements. 

1. Get More From Your Equipment

Device mismanagement can be a costly error, particularly regarding workflow strategy. For example, moving a robust multifunction printer closer to the departments that print the highest volume delivers a higher return on investment. And if your fleet is heavy on personal inkjet printers, replacing them with a centralized MFP that provides more features and costs less to operate is a step in the right direction. Managed Print can help your organization identify and correct these fleet placement errors.

2. Stop Spending Too Much on Supplies

Managed Print Services can rescue your staff from the hassles associated with consumables. A low supply warning from your device signals your Managed Print specialists to send what you need in advance of an emergency. You'll get the right supplies in the right quantities as a part of your Managed Print Services agreement.

3. Reduce Costly Equipment Downtimes

Managed Print can be a game-changer when it comes to equipment downtimes. By monitoring your devices and providing routine maintenance, most issues can be resolved long before they have a chance to impact your workflows.

4. Prepare for the Future

It can be difficult to determine when it's in your best interest to replace your printing assets. Managed Print experts can assist you in planning for the future, outlining a strategy for replacing aging equipment in a way that best meets your requirements.
