Our Approach

Whether you want to save money, automate document workflows or enable mobile printing, our Managed Print Services (MPS) expertise can help. Customers gain control of their document processes through our proven, four-step approach, which is based on helping organisations get more out of their print infrastructure investment.

Here’s your roadmap to document management freedom:

1. ASSESS

Take our free Xerox print assessment as an example of our commitment to increasing efficiency and saving you money.

We’ll expertly identify the good, the bad and the indifferent within your printing environment. Anything that might have an impact in your document management and print environment.
The best solutions for customers come from expending the most effort during assessment. The ZenOffice MPS assessment includes the following:

    • User analysis

Understand end user, departmental and organisational requirements by collating feedback and opinions on current print environment and their needs

  • Procedures analysis
    Highlight any areas of inefficiencies in toner replacement procedures, servicing and training
  • Devices
    Verify the number of print, copy, scan and fax devices along with device information such as make, model, serial numbers, install dates, age, location and floor plans and meter readings
  • Set up and maintenance costs
    Identify lease commitments, depreciation costs, parts and labour costs and toners. Additionally we will look at any outsourced print, copy or scanning and any third party fees such as helpdesk or service costs
  • Usage rates
    Establish the ratio of black and white versus colour print jobs, jobs printed internally and externally, the number of pages per job, ratio of devices to users etc.
  • Energy consumption
    Ascertain the current energy consumption of each device and provide further consumption details at department, location and organisational level

 

2. DESIGN

The design of your business ‘Future State’ is very much a collaborative process. Every feature of your print environment is tested before agreement is reached, even important but often overlooked aspects such as bills or review formatting.

A detailed plain English roadmap delivers expert advice on how you can get from where you are now (wishing you could cut costs and boost efficiency) to that slick, cost effective and environmentally friendly place you want to be.

We might recommend a ‘transitional’ journey where we manage your existing fleet. It might be ‘transformational’ recommendation where we suggest new hardware and/or software. Either way you can focus on doing what you do best – running your business, safe in the knowledge that your printing fleet will be operating at maximum efficiency and supported by experts.

3. IMPLEMENT

When it comes to implementation including removals, networking and training, you can rely on our many years of experience and expertise to provide you with unbeatable business support and a managed print service.

4. MANAGE

Your print management is automated and will include:

  • Trouble shooting and repair
  • Supplies tracking and ordering
  • Ordering and usage monitoring
  • Head of Customer Services
  • Provide remote monitoring and service desk
  • Proactive incident management and supplies replenishment
