Managed Print Solutions
Outsourcing your print output (and potentially the entire document workflow processes) and consolidating all costs
associated with this into one single agreement will free up your time to focus your resources on your core business.
Cloudware in association with Concorde can offer you the complete Managed Print Solution.
Why do I need a Managed Print Solution?
WHAT ARE MANAGED PRINT SERVICES (MPS)?
Managed Print Services is the outsourcing of the management of all of your hardcopy output devices, eg. multifunctional devices, printers, copiers and fax machines. In addition, Concorde’s MPS can also help you meet the challenges of printing from the Cloud. Managed Document Services (MDS) take in a wider scope of services including document workflow and electronic document management.
Typical MPS and/or MDS arrangements consolidate existing hardcopy output devices with new devices and software solutions into a single and easily manageable agreement. This agreement can be represented as a single or multiple ‘Cost per Page’ and based on an overall volume of impressions rather than the typical time bound agreements.
You can expect.
• Customised service levels suited to your individual needs
• Comprehensive set of management information with consolidated billing
• Agile document control and routing workflow systems
• Continual optimisation of your print environment throughout the agreement life
• Additional services and software applications that can be added to your core feature set as your business grows
Concorde’s MPS solutions are underpinned by our key software applications:
Discovery and Design software helps us analyse and plan for the changes required in implementing your MPS
Print Management software manages the volume and nature of print and lets you authenticate users
Device Management software monitors and manages your print devices in an environment
Scan Routing software routes scans to your chosen destinations including network folders, email, workflows or fax servers
Printing from the Cloud
The Cloud brings a huge range of benefits to businesses but printing from the Cloud can be challenging for many existing print set ups. Concorde’s lengthy heritage in delivering effective print solutions makes us uniquely placed to help your organisation meet this challenge.
Better print management and cost control
Concorde will back up your Cloud printing services with a fully managed print auditing engine. Our managed print services will monitor your print output and give you the necessary information to manage and potentially reduce print costs in your company.
Fully flexible print system
It is essential to be sure that your printing is quick and effective while giving users the functionality that they are used to when putting your corporate network in the Cloud. Whether you want a simple user controlled print set up or a full rules based ‘follow me’ print solution with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) support, Concorde can specify and deliver an appropriate and robust Cloud based printing solution
Safe and secure printing
Concorde will make sure your print system remains safe and secure. We offer a range of options to control your print, from swipe/proximity card/ PIN or username to password access controls linked directly to your active directory (AD). Integrated USB card readers can turn your device into an access control system which may help you in reducing admin and potential hardware issues.
Print from any device
There is a multitude of ways to integrate your devices which makes printing from your phone or tablet as easy as possible.
All major manufacturers supported
At Concorde we have long established relationships with all major manufacturers including Sharp, Canon, Konica Minolta and Kyocera. We supply and support embedded 'follow me' print solutions from all of these suppliers as well as many other manufacturers.
