Selecting a print supplier: advice to commercial businesses

Finding a print supplier who can optimise a company's print output while meeting an agreed set of objectives (which will almost certainly include cost reduction and improved efficiency) can be challenging.

From the print supplier's point of view, clients in the commercial sector represent a very diverse set of challenges. This business sector encompasses non-manufacturing businesses, from hotels and restaurants, to retail stores and warehouses, as well as health and social institutions, so the scope is very broad indeed.

A word about print solutions

A managed print service means an all-encompassing package of equipment, consumables and provision of service. Managed print solutions allow visibility and management of print processes, which enhance productivity, ensure security and data compliance and achieve cost savings for the business.

Managed print solution challenges in the commercial sector

Businesses in the commercial sector are always seeking to maintain a competitive advantage and at the same time their customer expectations are constantly shifting. Factor in employee flexibility and mobility and it's easy to see that any business's managed print solutions provider must be proactive in this changing landscape.

A partnership: choosing a print supplier

The right supplier can transform you business and positively impact your print infrastructure, however, outsourcing your managed print solutions doesn't mean losing visibility of this core business activity. Your managed print supplier should be working in partnership with you, assessing, analysing and monitoring your printing environment after conducting an initial in-depth survey of your business needs.

Advice from your print supplier

Your print supplier should offer you impartial advice on a variety of reputable printer manufacturers, ensuring that your specific print requirements can be met and managed.

Choosing a print supplier who can advise on other office-based technologies, for example business telephone systems and software to improve workflow, means that their expertise is on hand when you need it.

Will your print supplier offer ongoing support?

An ongoing support service from your print supplier is invaluable. An IT helpdesk manned by experienced engineers who can offer advice remotely or arrange for a local engineer to solve your problems will save money and enhance efficiency.

Security for your print needs

There is an increasing number of managed print suppliers in today's marketplace and choosing one that is well-established will inspire confidence in their reliability and longevity.
