Print downtime is commonplace in any business. We’ve all experienced print server downtime at some point, and we’ve all witnessed the effects it can have on day to day production. One of the easiest ways to prevent downtime is to have a backup print server. This way, you can ensure that business printing can continue even when something goes wrong.
But a backup server comes at a cost, and quite often this can cancel out any savings you potentially make by keeping the show running. Extra server hardware will need to be powered and maintained, whilst server software will have to be licensed. All adding up to be a big overhead, with no guarantee that it will successfully back up the primary server when it crashes. In some cases, it can even be advised to have double server redundancy which can be even more costly. For small or growing businesses, this can have a detrimental effect on cash flow.
This is why it can be extremely beneficial to have all your printing needs outsourced to another company. A managed printing service not only saves you money on printers and lets your in-house IT managers focus on other important problems, but it can help you reduce paper waste and increase efficiency in the work space.
