  12. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? 3rd HIGHEST OFFICE EXPENSE Most companies can cut printing costs by 10 – 30% … * Print * Source – Analyst firm Gartner Group

  13. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … So What can Businesses Do? First and foremost … Learn how your company processes print, print copy, copy scan scan, fax fax & invoicing invoicing activities • Comprehend the print process • Visualize document movement • Chart departments that distribute paper • Include payables, receivables and services • Understand process challenges • Define how paper impacts business costs THEN … Plan to manage the print process

  14. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … Defining “Managed Print Services” The MPSA < http://yourmpsa.org/> defines Managed Print Services as: "...the ACTIVE management and optimization of document output devices and related business processes..." Know these components to determine your MPS program • The MPSA defines four common MPS Business Components: • Supply Fulfillment only • Supply Fulfillment PLUS Break/Fix Service • Supply Fulfillment, Break/Fix PLUS Equipment Management • Supply Fulfillment, Break/Fix, Equipment, PLUS …

  15. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … So What’s Under the Bed? --- --- --- the “Dust–bunnies”: … So What’s Under the Bed? --- --- --- “Dust–bunnies”: Monthly page output Monthly page output Imaging device inventory Imaging device inventory Device placement Device placement Machine usage (efficiency) Machine usage (efficiency) Unnecessary equipment Unnecessary equipment Non-manageable machines Non-manageable machines Imaging fleet operating costs Imaging fleet operating costs Where can the answers be found?

  16. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? Remember – You get what you pay for! … Assessment and Evaluation Assessment Identifies Challenges Assessment Identifies Challenges • Gathers a machine inventory That helps LOCATE ALL equipment! • Defines average page output per month • Shows machine usage • Identifies management capability • Suggests efficient device placement • Can help determine operating cost of the fleet … leading to fleet reduction and lower printed output • A proper assessment (done over a specified time), • allows for a sound print management strategy. • An MPS strategy is NOT possible • when real-time data cannot be gathered.

  17. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … The Assessment • Data collection: • Collection software is efficient • Two primary collection methods • “Quick” assessments – NO deployment • Calls for two or more capture attempts • Some devices may not report during capture • Reporting challenges / device status is difficult to determine • Software deployment • Baseline reporting / device inventories are established • Missing devices can be found and noted • Offers continuous reporting • Continuous reporting spots challenges / gives device status Data collection: Good “Quick” assessments – NO deployment Better Software deployment

  18. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … A Typical Meter Gathering Process • Initiate software deployment from: • Website link • USB thumb drive • An executable link sent via email Initiate software deployment from: IP search ranges can be defined during searches IP search ranges can be defined during searches Server installations may not be required Server installations may not be required • Once deployed, the revealed device list can be reviewed • Activate Off-line devices • Add “missing” devices • Research SNMP challenges • Update community strings (as needed) • Find / add locally connected devices Once deployed, the revealed device list can be reviewed Devices can have connectivity challenges identified • Devices can have connectivity challenges identified • Note Limited reporting ability • (Identify “non-manageable” machines)

  19. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … Collected Information • Meter collection tools gather a lot of information: • For networked devices (gathered via SNMP): • Network name • MAC address • Model • Serial number • IP addresses • Print server • Total engine counter • Total color counter • Total copies • Color copies • For locally connected devices (monitored through the Windows spooler): • Model and a page tally through the spooler • Printer driver • Serial number • Total engine counter • Total color counter (some models) • Toner level (some models may report black, cyan, magenta, yellow) For networked devices (gathered via SNMP): Total prints Color prints Faxes Scans Toner level (black, cyan, magenta, yellow) Maintenance Kit level (transfer, fuser, drum) Document feeder throughput Custom meters Location of device (if configured) For locally connected devices (monitored through the Windows spooler):

  20. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … Meter Reports Collected data is provided in detailed reports Collection software may also gather: Day and time report was updated Name/Network ID IP addresses Machine where software is installed Ending meter  Beginning meter  Volume within the date range is recorded

  21. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … Now, While the Software is Doing “Its Thing”, the assessment Really begins… • Assessments gather useful data • Determine assessment period • … Weeks, a month, quarter or longer • Longer assessments yield accurate data(but may have a cost) • Plan additional time to analyze data, prepare and present the MPS plan • During the assessment, assemble the following • Determine document flow(where people are doing their printing) • Gather a device inventory • Monitor devices for intermittent reporting • Inventory on-hand supplies • Gather supply sourcing documentation (including cost detail) • Tell people “changes are coming” (to reduce surprises) Assessments gather useful data Typical assessments are done over 30 to 60 days During the assessment, assemble the following:

  22. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … During the assessment, devices are reporting status detail: • Toner levels • Reports in percentage remaining • Set at multiple levels • May report in days remaining • Premature Cartridge Replacement • Reports when toner is replaced early • Service need • Reports when device indicates a service need • May report toner condition for devices • Volume alerting • For devices that do not report accurate status data Toner levels Premature Cartridge Replacement Service need Volume alerting

  23. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … Sites are reporting status detail as well: • Missed meter reporting • For installations that stop reporting • Missed installation check-ins • For installations that stop checking in • Alerting for devices that stop reporting • For devices that stop reporting • Alerting for devices that stop reporting toner levels • When replacement cartridge does not report toner level Missed meter reporting Missed installation check-ins Alerting for devices that stop reporting Alerting for devices that stop reporting toner levels

  24. What’s Under Your Bed That Will Get You? … Alert Reports / Supply and Service Fulfillment • Site Status indicates … • Toner need • Service need • Late reporting / non-reporting devices
