In-plants Should Offer Managed Print Services
In his new blog, Ray Chambers, of Chambers Management Group, notes that a lot of organizations are focusing on right-sizing their copier/MFD fleets. They are turning to equipment vendors who offer "managed print services" and promise savings of 30 percent by reducing the number of printers, copiers and fax machines they have and purchasing competitively.
This fleet analysis service, Chambers argues, is something that in-plant managers can offer their organizations. They just have to let them know they can do it.
"Chances are you have the KSAs (knowledge, skills and abilities) to analyze the current situation and make recommendations on ways to optimize the fleet," Chambers writes. "The problem is, your expertise may not be recognized, and that’s where you need to be proactive."
Ray Chambers' blog appears on the IPG Web site, along with a new blog from Tom Tozier, president of TNT Sustainable Business Solutions, called "Keeping it Green." Both Tozier and Chambers are former in-plant managers.
