get to know the cloud

You can’t read a business article or blog these days without seeing mention of cloud technology and how this newish advancement can be a silver bullet for boosting productivity and a the bottom line.

Cloud jobs are growing as the technology continues to emerge, and recent findings have indicated that more and more CIOs worldwide are committing significant amounts of their annual budget on investing in cloud technology in order to reduce costs and improve efficiency.

As the cloud plays into more and more aspects of office life, it should be no surprise that it also can enhance Managed Print Services (MPS) in several significant ways. And not just for large corporations. Even small businesses can see huge advantages in using cloud-based MPS services, including:

  • Enhanced Productivity
  • Better Document Storage
  • Increased Cost Savings
  • More Eco-friendly Practices
  • Mobile printing and more

Boosting MPS benefits with the Cloud

Let’s take a closer look at how the cloud can better print and manage documents. Xerox has been a player in the cloud for several years, and has proven how integrating the latest cloud technology into document management can improve the process.

First, the unification of all MPS services under the cloud can help you streamline your infrastructure, give you a lower cost structure and boost your productivity at the same time. More productivity leads to lower costs and higher profits.

Secondly (and maybe one of the biggest advantages), the cloud can reduce your need for internal document storage. By keeping your documents digital and securely stored in the cloud you save physical space in your office as well as increase convenience. Digital documents can be easily retrieved from the cloud from virtually anywhere—from any device.

Storing documents securely in the cloud also makes your company more eco-friendly. And we all want to be a little greener, right?

Mobile printing too. From anywhere, with any device

When Managed Print Services and the cloud work together, it can bring to the invaluable ability for you and your workers to print while even out of the office. With the cloud, you can upload documents into the server and keep them there until your reach a destination where you want to print them. This eliminates third parties and keeps private documents more private. Pretty convenient, right? And all you need is the Internet to make it happen.

A very cloudy (and bright) future

In short, the cloud is here to stay. It is an integral piece of simplifying the way your office works, offers many advantages in security and convenience and is scalable to work with businesses both large and small alike.
