The cost of running office printers is not just the purchase price of the machine. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) depends on the price of its ink or toner as well as a host of other hidden costs (including IT management and invoice processing). Often maintenance costs, including fitting replacement parts, such as the drums in a laser printer or maintenance kits can prove expensive.
When you consider these extra costs, a printer with a low headline purchase price may turn out to be a more expensive option overall. FleetMPS has a TCO calculator, which compares our own solution to your current practises for printing.

Migrating customers to higher levels of print automation and document management maturity, including converting paper-based workflows to digital and re-engineering processes for greater efficiencies, is the third stage of next-generation Managed Print Services (MPS). We call this stage “Automate and Simplify,” and this is where it gets interesting. With the right technology now in place and securely integrated into your IT environment, we look at what it takes to improve productivity in your document-related workflows. We offer services and technology that take workflow automation beyond just scanning and digitizing paper documents into real business transformation. We start by capturing quantitative data to analyse your current document workflow.
We also provide information about why documents are printed, shared and moved through your business. This dual approach is unique to our methodology.
The result is data-driven analysis specific to your document use and processes. After your workflow analysis, Fleet MPS delivers a Process Optimisation Report. It provides actionable insights and recommendations to automate and simplify your document workflows.
- We carefully execute workflow integration, because we know you can’t afford any disruptions or risks when you introduce change.
- Once we optimise your workflow, we stay engaged with services, dashboards, content management and other innovations to keep your workflow efficient and secure.
Fleet MPS deliver real benefits and allow you to focus on your core objectives while we manage all aspects of your print and document management strategy.
