Market Overview:
Managed print services (MPS) are third-party-managed print and document solutions that help organizations reduce costs, improve efficiency and mitigate risks associated with print infrastructure and document management. MPS programs offer assessment of existing printer infrastructure, streamlining and rightsizing of the fleet, installation of multi-function printers and provisioning of supplies, parts and service. This reduces capital expenditures and shifts printing from a cost center to a managed service. MPS plans cover end-user support, supplies management and proactive monitoring to ensure optimal performance of the print environment. MPS helps organizations reduce paper consumption and better manage document workflows through digitization and process automation.

The rise of digital transformation initiatives across industries is accelerating MPS adoption. Growing remote and hybrid work trends have made print management challenging, driving demand for managed services. Furthermore, as-a-service business models are gaining traction as organizations look for operational expenditure-based subscriptions over expensive capital investments. Sustainability has also become an important factor, with MPS helping reduce paper wastage and carbon footprint through improved optimization and controls. MPS providers are expanding service offerings such as cloud-based fleet management, software-based solutions and digital mailroom services to meet evolving needs.
