paper copies, and it might be time for you to partner with a managed print services (MPS) provider.
An MPS provider is a third-party that handles document printing with more efficiency. They manage printing services to find savings, maximize productivity, and ensure security. You get expert help with your business printer technology and usage. Let’s consider the benefits of partnering with an MPS provider.
#1 Matches your printer equipment to your business needs
You might have a highly capable printer, with the operating costs to match, that your business doesn’t need. An accounting firm needs a different printer from a graphic design outfit. The numbers folks might get away with a desktop office printer, whereas those working with fuchsia, salmon, and coral pinks need a high-quality color printer. The MPS provider can identify the best copier for every budget and different needs.
#2 Identifies cost-saving opportunities
You know your business, and you know it well. An MPS has insight into the value of different printer features for your environment. They make recommendations to increase productivity and reduce costs related to printers.
As an example, you might have two printers on each floor of your business. One is in constant use, while the other is seldom touched and in great condition. Instead of overworking a costly printer, the MPS knows when to rotate your equipment. This can avoid downtime and extend the equipment lifecycle.
Or you may be overburdening your office printer. Some jobs are less expensive and faster using an off-site business printing company.
An MPS provider can also negotiate printing supply contracts to reduce operating costs.
#3 Positions you for greater printer efficiency
This involves replacing legacy equipment, upgrading printers, or moving them within the office. An MPS provider starts out by getting to know your business and taking a careful look at your printing output.
Using the tools in printer technology today, the MPS will be able to customize reports for you to review:
what printers are used most;
who is using printers most;
what departments are using more paper;
which teams often send in print jobs at the same time;
which teams are printing in color, not black and white;
who needs high-quality printing for external audiences;
who needs fast, high-quantity printing;
which high-traffic machines are at risk of maintenance issues;
Which printer/copiers are underutilized.
Armed with this data, they can streamline printer placement and make workflow recommendations.
#4 Frees up your team’s time and energy
With an MPS provider involved, you have one point of contact for all printer/copier concerns:
If you’re an office with more than one brand of printer, you don’t have to deal with different manufacturers.
The MPS provider makes sure toner, paper, and other supplies are available.
The IT team no longer has to spend time dealing with printer devices the MPS provider manages.
#5 Optimizes your printer technology
When printing, you know how to navigate the print screen and push the button to start your job. An MPS also manages print issues and introduces preventative maintenance to avoid costly downtime. The MPS provider knows so much more about printer capabilities, plus, they can configure remote printers for staff mobile devices or off-site.
You want a healthy business. An MPS provider can help keep your printers healthy, and productivity high.

We found it very easy to work with Underdog. He gave a very clear and professional quote, he has been promptly responsive in all communications, and the network is working great. I feel very good about using his company for any future IT needs for our business.
Pam Watkins, Forks Bistro
Barton Heights had a very successful computer upgrade due to Underdog. I met with him 2-3 months before the project and he gave us an estimate of the entire upgrade process involving 31 computers and a server. He advised us and placed the order. He also worked with us and ended up revising the estimate twice to completely satisfy our computer upgrade needs. He added true value to his service as he was willing to perform the upgrade in the evening when we were closed to minimize our down time as we are a paperless business and rely 100% on our computers. Carmine stepped up and took care of those problems as well, even though that was not his responsibility. He always responds quickly to any issue that occurs. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

12 years in business and I have been there and done that with other IT / Computer biz, and finally found one that listens, asks questions, and comes up with a plan.
If you are having issues or just want to see if there are options for and avenues of improvement for your computer / networking needs, checkout Underdog Computer and Network Support LLC.
There are some others that are good, but I cannot express the difference enough - they actually get it! Every business IS different with different needs and processes, and they take the time to find what is best for you instead of what they think is best for you!
Thank you, Carmine J. Corridore, for allowing me to have a stress free vacation this year! I look forward to working with you in the near future for some serious upgrades!
