The Managed Print Services Association (MPSA), a global organization comprised of managed print customers and managed print providers define Managed Print Services as, “The active management and optimization of document output devices and related business processes.”

You cannot manage what you cannot measure. For most organizations, office printing is commonly still an unmanaged expense. Printers are purchased as needed without considering the total cost of ownership. Toner cartridges are ordered and stocked in supply closets, tying up operational capital. Valuable IT staff spend (waste) time chasing printer issues instead of focusing on more important projects. Office printing is an infrastructure just as important as facilities, telecommunications, and IT networks, yet it is often overlooked, and very rarely structured.
A Managed Print Services (MPS) program is a defined and proven business strategy designed to help manage the volume of documents flowing through your organization, and minimize the costs associated with printing, sharing, and updating these documents.
Rothwell helps alleviate the printer burden so you can focus on what you do best – your business. We provide control over the cost of printing, allowing you to make more informed, better business decisions. Service components of our MPS program include, but are not limited to:
Reduce costs while increasing productivity through print management services.
Inconsistencies in hardware, supplies and service make it nearly impossible to determine the actual cost of printing, let alone control it. Rothwell gives you control over the cost of printing, allowing you to make good management decisions.
In many cases, when we begin working with a company, it will have many different brands and models of printers. This makes it nearly impossible to stock all of the supplies and coordinate service with several vendors. Rothwell will help you develop printer standards, reducing downtime, and improving end user productivity.
The CEO will be happy to see cost reductions, increased productivity, higher efficiencies.
Print costs can be accurately measured and current printer assets can be maintained to avoid additional expenses. Consolidating into one vendor can reduce the hassle of managing multiple payable accounts.
Eliminate fleet management hassles and allow the IT manager do what he or she does best.
Automatic supply shipments ensure that employees will always have the tools they need to be productive and Rothwell’s proactive service reduces downtime.
