What are Managed Print Services?
When it comes to cost savings initiatives, office printing has largely been ignored. At the same time, office printing consumes 1-3% of a company’s annual revenue. Organizations that actively manage their printing can reduce costs by an average of 20% while increasing productivity.
The Topp Managed Print Services (MPS) strategy empowers you with the ability to manage your costs. Below, you will find the main reasons companies choose to partner with Topp to manage their print output.
Are you looking for meaningful strategies to reduce costs? Studies predict that office print usage will grow by 5.5% this year. The astonishing number behind this statistic is that color printing is forecast to grow at 18.5%. Color prints cost 5-10 times the cost of black and white. The Topp-MPS strategy gives you the ability to manage and reduce office printing expenses.
Do you have control over your printing costs? You cannot manage that you cannot measure. Many of our clients had no idea what they were spending on printing. Fragmented decision making and purchasing patterns for hardware, supplies and service made it nearly impossible to determine the actual cost of printing, let alone controlling it. Topp-MPS gives you central control over the cost of printing, allowing you to make good management decisions.

Do you have a system to ensure continuous productivity? Very few things inhibit office productivity more than a printer that is out of service. Many of the companies we serve initially had many different brands and models of printers. That meant that it was nearly impossible to stock all of the required toner, manage all of the print drivers and coordinate service with multiple ven
dors. Topp-MPS helps you develop printer standards, reducing downtime and improving end user productivity.
Key Components to TBS-MPS System
If you are like most companies, you probably have printing devices from many popular manufacturers like HP, Lexmark, Xerox or Dell. This means multiple supply vendors and multiple support contracts. The challenge is finding a company that can manage a fragmented environment.
Topp Managed Print Services is a comprehensive program to help you control and reduce office printing costs. Unlike other incomplete Managed Print Programs that only include printer cartridges and emergency service, Topp-MPS includes a comprehensive suite of services that deliver a proactive approach to keeping you productive and lowering your costs.
We monitor your printer fleet with innovative software that enables us to respond proactively to restock supplies or provide service. It provides a real-time status of your entire printer fleet, through an intuitive web-based management console. Rich usage reporting provides useful information to make effective management decisions to optimize and update the fleet on an ongoing basis.
We can provide “Cost-Per-Page” programs that include cartridge replacement and/or Break/Fix service for less than you are spending on cartridges—today!
When a device is down, we are able to handle the problem through our help desk. If onsite support is needed, we respond within 8 hours through a network of authorized printer service agents. Your printers stay online keeping your office productive. Ongoing service ensures that your printers will last longer, extending the lifecycle of your assets.
TBS software monitors the supply levels in each of your devices and automatically ships out a cartridge to a printer when it is running low. This ensures that your printers do not run out of supplies and reduces the cost of having a large inventory of cartridges in your facilities.
Realize the benefits of continuous improvement. The TBS program can provide regular reviews of your usage. Leveraging data from the continuous monitoring system, we work with you to identify usage trends, problem areas and potential cost savings. You benefit from continuous improvement to reduce costs and increase productivity.
With the TBS-MPS program, you can be assured that one single point of contact will manage and oversee your unique print management needs. Each TBS program is custom designed to address each end-user environment.
