Non-Profits: Get Your Print Expenses Under Control with MPS

Posted by Tim Stanley on Mon, Aug 29, 2016 @ 10:08 AM


Non-profit organizations face a number of unique challenges with regards to budgeting, accountability and even printing. In an environment where every penny counts and the demand for printing for both internal and public use can be a delicate balancing act—Managed Print Services (MPS) can help. 

Non-Profits and Print 

Due to their complex nature, the print infrastructure of a typical non-profit usually consists of a multitude of devices, from a variety of vendors, spread out over a number of departments. And while it's easy to see how this type of environment makes it hard to control costs, there are a number of other challenges to contend with, including:

  • Technology. Lack of funding for up to date equipment can hamper the quality, efficiency, and productivity of your print environment. 
  • Security. Information may be at risk in the absence of adequate security measures, including lack of IT support, updates, and software found on newer printers and copiers. 
  • Funding. Government or private funding cutbacks are common, leading to budget unpredictability.
