This is the benefit
With an ASL Managed Print Service you have more predictable hardware and consumable costs, leading to further opportunities for efficiencies and cost reduction.
The ASL portal provides analytics reporting allowing a view of print usage, and workers can be provided with set limits on how much printing they can perform per day or week.
Via your ASL Portal, you can view live information on your fleet including machine uptime, usage, automatic meter readings, view actual toner levels, track toner deliveries and even request service calls.
If required ASL can implement software which provides greater security via the use of print release from your existing ID cards, limits on how a user can print and will also give you the ability to cross charge other departments or clients if appropriate.
All this close management of your fleet throughout your contract helps reduced paper usage, continue to reduce costs and support green initiatives.
Overall implementing an MPS services strategy can reduce the amount of time your IT team need to spend on printer related issues freeing them up to concentrate on more business-critical projects. Additionally, MPS solutions can help a company move from a paper to a digital document-based strategy, as part of process automation or other advances. ASL have specialised consultants to help you with this if required.
