Modern MPDS

It’s a fascinating time for managed print and document services. In today’s data-led world, hard copy and electronic documents (and the information contained within them) are integral to effective business operations. But with data volumes rising rapidly, the cost of efficiently managing and maintaining modern information sets is a real challenge. What’s more, there is an expectation today that the data held by businesses should be informing smarter and more efficient ways of working, powering greater customer insights or helping drive future innovation.

In the ever-changing world of document and information management, Canon is continuing to develop its consistent Managed Print Services offerings to meet the growing demands of offices and Central Reprographic Departments, including multi-site, multi-national, multi-regional and Global environments regionally and across the globe.

Working with the experts

With digital transformation climbing up the corporate agenda, effective information management has never been more important. The digitisation of print management, alongside the use of scanning and capture, represents a real opportunity to reduce costs, increase security and free up the workforce to focus on more profitable or valuable tasks by enabling rapid access to timely, relevant information.

Managing a complex print service across multiple office and print room sites, countries and brands can be a real drain on internal resources, costing a business unnecessary time and money. Working with an expert partner in this department is essential. With a customer-centric approach coupled with an expanded workflow solution offering, Canon is well-placed to help business optimise processes and deliver continuous improvement and provide solutions and service delivery to businesses across Europe and beyond utilising MPDS.

As businesses seek to return a greater level of profit to its employees and shareholders, more organisations are realising that the introduction of MPDS enables them to refocus on what they do best. While information management has traditionally been run by in-house teams, print, and in particular print management, still represents one of the last great areas of uncontrolled costs. MPDS is a huge opportunity for businesses of all shapes and sizes to introduce automation in a way that will release immediate productivity, cost and security gains.
