What is Managed Print Services?

Managed print services, also known as print management, is a service offered by an external print provider (such as Axia Office) to manage your organisation’s document output.

Through our managed print services, we help you manage all aspects of your company’s printing, including the printing equipment, toner replacements, consumables, and routine services. Our print management plan is tailored to specific requirements, to ensure that you get the exact solution that fits your needs. This allows you to maximise productivity, minimise costs, and focus on what is most important: your business.

Benefits of Managed Print Services

Improved cost efficiencies An agreed cost per mono and colour page across all print devices that delivers cost savings ranging from 10 to 40%, assisting in budgeting and allocation of costs to the appropriate business unit. This eliminates the need to deal with multiple vendors, as a single point of contact improves communication and accountability. Most importantly, it removes the responsibility of managing your print platform, leaving you free to concentrate on your business.

Equipment to suit your exact needs Our choice of brands, including Canon, Sharp and Epson, ensures you get new multifunction photocopiers and desktop laser printers in the right places, increasing productivity and user satisfaction.

Australian owned & operated Axia Office is Australian owned and has operated since 1996. All our profits remain local, allowing us to support the local community, such as the sponsorship of local sporting teams and through our make a difference program, giving back to our partner charities Foodbank NSW & ACT and Rural Aid Australia.

Payout Existing Contracts When reviewing a business’s current printing agreements an account manager will analyse your current invoices and contract, to calculate calculate how much you have left owing and include the pay out figure in your quotation.

Preventative maintenance and fast breakdown servicing Axia’s service model is based on a preventative maintenance schedule for each of your devices. Just like a car needing servicing intervals, your multifunction photocopier or printer will be serviced based on how much usage it has done. This leads to fewer breakdowns and more time for our technicians to respond to breakdown calls, giving us a very fast service completion time of 4 hours or less.

Our Managed Print Services Process

Axia Office is committed to offering you the best managed print solution to benefit your business. Once we have received your enquiry, our process is simple

1. REVIEW

An account manager will contact you to find out more about your print and business requirements, as well as review your current equipment, usage, and costs.

2. ANALYSIS

We’ll calculate the true operating cost of printing to your business, what finance options would work best, and any payouts that we need to include.

3. SOLUTION

You’ll be presented with a customised and complete proposal, including finance options, equipment and service – all compared to your current operational costs.

4. IMPLEMENTATION

Once the plan has been agreed upon, we will set up all devices and users, and you’ll receive fast, ongoing support, reliable toner delivery, and scheduled preventative maintenance throughout the duration of the agreement.

5. DONATION

Our clients enable us to support the local community. Each donation Axia makes is tailored to give as much as possible, with a minimum of 2,000 meals or 9,200L of water being funded from each deal signed.

6. MONITORING

Your account manager will continue to review your account and work with you to reduce costs and identify more ways to add value to your business.

Axia’s Preventative Maintenance Approach

In Axia’s 20+ years of experience maintaining and servicing machines, we have seen that a preventative maintenance approach is far more efficient in reducing both costs and equipment downtime.

We want to ensure minimal interruptions and a consistently high standard of quality when it comes to your machines, so as an Axia client, your machines are serviced on a volume schedule in order to prevent breakdowns or emergency servicing.

The Importance of Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance for your machines work similarly to car servicing: if you take your car in to get its brakes fixed, the mechanic is only going to fix your brakes, and you may be back a month later to fix something else. However, if you take your car in for regular services, i.e. 100,000km service, the mechanic is going to look over everything and preventatively maintain your vehicle to prevent your car needing another or more major service sooner.

How Our Ongoing Service Works

At each maintenance interval, our service technicians complete all checks and replace all parts in accordance with the manufacturer’s service manual, thereby addressing problems before they occur. And, unlike your car service, the cost is included in your contract. It also allows us to prioritise you if your equipment breaks down. Clients A, B & C may have preventative services already booked; however, as those are not urgent, if you have a breakdown, you are prioritised, and from the time of your call, you’ll receive complete services in less than four hours.
