Managed Print Services

Outsource your print output (and possibly the entire document workflow processes) and consolidate all of the costs associated with this into one single agreement. Relinquishing responsibility for print and document workflow will give you back the time to concentrate your resources on your core business.

Managed Print Services (MPS) - What does it mean?
Managed Print Services means outsourcing the management of all hardcopy output devices, i.e. copiers, printers, multifunctional devices and fax machines within an organisation. Principal's MPS can also help you meet the challenges of printing from the CloudManaged Document Services (MDS) considers a wider scope of services such as electronic document management and document workflow. 
A typical MPS/MDS arrangement would include the following core features:
Consolidation of all existing hardcopy output devices and any new devices and solutions into one single and easy to manage maintenance agreement. This can be represented as a single or multiple 'Cost per Page' and can be based on a volume of impressions rather than the usual time bound agreement.
You will receive: 
Service levels tailored to your specific needs
Comprehensive management information with consolidated billing
Ability to deploy complete document control and routing workflows
On-going optimisation of the environment throughout the agreement life
A wide variety of other services and software applications that can be added to this core feature set as your business grows
MPS solutions are underpinned by key software applications that fall into one of four categories:
Discovery and Design software to analyse and plan for the change required in implementing a MPS
Print Management software to manage the volume and nature of print and authenticate users
Device Management software to monitor and manage the print devices in an environment
Scan Routing software to route scans to various destinations including fax servers, network folders, email or workflows
In summary MPS/MDS involves the complete outsourcing of print output (and possibly the entire document workflow processes) and the consolidation of all of the costs associated with this into one single agreement enabling you to relinquish responsibility for print and document workflow and concentrate your resources on its core business.
