Cost savings still main driver for MPS

Cost savings and reductions in paper use – sometimes characterised as the ‘low hanging fruit’ of managed print services (MPS) – are still there to be harvested, claims the new Managed Print Services Landscape report from Quocirca.

The research company’s survey of 300 IT managers in the UK, France, Germany and US highlights growing demand for MPS as IT managers continue to address the inefficiencies and cost of document workflows:

*79% anticipate increasing MPS spend in the next 12 months, with 27% planning a significant increase;
*50% say printing is still very important to their business;
*72% have not fully achieved consumables cost reduction objectives;
*71% have not fully realised environmental impact reduction objectives;
*63% say they are in the optimisation phase of MPS deployment, focused on delivering workflow tools to improve business processes;
*37% say MPS is very important to digital transformation – up from 23% in 2018; and
*84% say embedded MFP apps are useful for integrating paperdigital workflows. Quocirca Research Director Louella Fernandes said: “The fundamental driver of MPS is cost reduction and this has still not been fully realised by the majority of organisations due to their enduring reliance on print.”
