New Photizo E-book Guides CXOs to Successful MPS Implementation
Wednesday, June 15, 2011
Midway, KY - A CXO's Guide to MPS, the new e-book from leading managed print services (MPS) research and consulting firm, Photizo Group, brings C-level executives a wealth of information on managed print services and how to implement them successfully. Part of the premium content offered through MPSInsightsPRO.com, this e-book will be available only until July 1 to non-members as part of a preview special.
Among the topics the e-book explores are MPS concepts, MPS best practices, challenges companies may encounter in implementing an MPS project and the benefits they can expect to achieve.
Subtitled, "How to Achieve the Trifecta of Corporate Benefits: Saving Money, Saving Time, Saving the Environment," A CXO's Guide to MPS delivers on the promise of meaningful results via MPS with research-backed facts:
- The average cost of a hardcopy fleet supporting a firm of 750 employees is $700,000
- Companies that implement an MPS program reduce their printing costs by an average of 30 percent
- A firm with 750 employees will require an average of 3,700 IT support hours for its hardcopy fleet
- Carbon emissions are reduced by an average of 60 percent after implementing MPS
Drilling deeper into the financial aspects of MPS, the e-book explains that hardware costs only account for five percent of total ownership. Operating costs and support account for the other 95 percent. The average company is spending about $725 per employee in annual out-of-pocket printing expenses. This does not include the enormous costs associated with IT support.
A CXO's Guide to MPS delves into the benefits of MPS and the steps involved in implementation with precise text and charts and diagrams. Graphic representations such as a Photizo's detailed four-stage model mapping the MPS adoption process and the complementary four-stage key questions for MPS decision makers add to the book's readability and usefulness.
According to Ed Crowley, Photizo Group CEO, "In the course of our research, consulting and real-world experience, we have gathered a great deal of information on how businesses in virtually any industry can benefit both operationally and financially from MPS. A CXO's Guide to MPS is filled with practical, useful information and data gleaned from Photizo Groups' extensive experience with successful MPS implementations. We believe that executives seeking a better understanding of the potential financial and operational impacts of MPS in their organizations will find the book to be an extremely valuable resource."
