Most MPS providers will centre the conversation around equipment—removing devices, redeploying units, or redirecting print jobs to centralised reprographic centres.

Lexmark Global Services Lexmark Managed Print Services | Lexmark Named as a Leader in the 2012 MPS Magic Quadrant "Under MPS, a service provider takes primary responsibility for meeting the customer's office printing needs, including the printing equipment, the supplies, the service and the overall management of the printer fleet... Large organisations, in particular, tend to have the most complex and least efficient office printing practices to begin with, and thus stand to benefit the most from optimising them." -Gartner, Inc.

Lexmark W TM Is your global print and imaging technology ready for the challenges ahead? Any managed print services strategy can help you standardise and consolidate your print and imaging devices to deliver a one-off cost saving, but a managed print services strategy from Lexmark can take you much further. Most MPS providers will centre the conversation around equipment—removing devices, redeploying units, or redirecting print jobs to centralised reprographic centres. At Lexmark, our focus is on pages, or more accurately, the pages that drive your daily business processes. While reducing the number of devices in your fleet and increasing user-to-device ratios can deliver one-time savings, they won't establish a foundation for ongoing productivity gains and cost savings. To do that, you have to print less—reduce your dependence on the printed page—and then go further by addressing the broader challenges of efficiently capturing, managing and accessing paper and digital documents across your enterprise. Unlike other providers, we don't force you to settle for an off-the-shelf solution. Lexmark solutions are custom-tailored to meet each client's unique needs.

Continuous Process Improvement » Lean Six Sigma Industry-Specific Workflow Solutions Back Office Solutions » Enterprise Content Management » Cloud Services » Mobility Solutions Shift Assumptions With the right partner, you can transform your enterprise. If you are seriously considering a managed print solution for your organisation, you probably already suspect that you are spending more than you should to operate your output fleet. Enlisting the help of a professional to help you get your hardcopy costs under control is a smart move. Even more important is finding the partner that's right for you. MPS solutions and the project management skills to implement them are complex. The most successful outcomes are achieved when the MPS provider demonstrates a clear understanding of your goals and objectives, is willing to conduct a thorough assessment of your output environment, and most importantly, can clearly show a track record of success. Lexmark's first multi-country services engagement was in the late 1990s, establishing us as a forerunner in the MPS market. Through the ensuing years, we have grown our team of experts, codified best practices, and built the global infrastructure needed to provide the highest level of service to our customers. The strategy we will recommend for you depends on your specific environment, goals and management commitment. Our aim, however, is straightforward: execution and results. We believe in planning, communications and visibility. No magic is involved in our success. It's based on the sound management principles of establishing well-defined goals, developing detailed plans for achieving those goals, and providing ongoing evaluations of results within the context of your business or mission. Running On All Cylinders Cummins, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of service engines and related technologies, has chosen Lexmark to manage, monitor and maintain its entire global fleet of output devices, which support 40,000 employees and operations in 190 countries and territories. SPEED 30 Countries in 30 Days Coordination, logistics and planning enable a fast start. During the first phase of Cummins' project, Lexmark's project team deployed in record time, installing all sites in a 30-country implementation in just one month. VISIBILITY Diamond Clarity With a fleet-wide view of all of its output devices, Cummins knows how many devices it operates, where they are located, what those devices are printing, and whether a device is over-utilised or under-utilised. In addition, the entire fleet is linked directly to the service desk to remedy issues before they impact user productivity. ACCURACY Inside View Cummins' IT staff is responsible for charging internal departments for print consumption. With a complete view of its entire network of devices, Lexmark is able to provide monthly reports on usage, by device and by location, so that the information can be fed directly into the billing system. RELEVANT Getting It Right By implementing Lexmark Print Release, print jobs at Cummins are no longer pushed to the printer. The solution strengthens document security, eliminates forgotten print jobs from piling up, and reduces paper and toner waste. RESULTS Running Lean In the first-year, Cummins saw monthly expenses drop by 62 percent, pages cut by 36 million and achieved annual savings of approximately $2 million. 4 MPS Essentials: Managing change and measuring progress. Ultimately, a managed print services engagement is an equal balance of products, processes and people. Changing the physical print devices that people use is one thing, but changing their print practices and behaviours is quite another. Lexmark MPS places emphasis on both sides of the equation—change management and governance—to deliver successful outcomes and continuous improvement. Change Management Lexmark MPS project team leaders are certified in research- based change management methodology. We align the three foundational elements of sponsorship, project management and change management to ensure your project achieves your target ROI and objectives. Our change management approach encompasses all phases and aspects of the project. More than just a communication plan, it is a structured methodology that we have developed after more than 3,500 MPS engagements and through the adoption of best practices. Governance and Reporting When implemented correctly, managed print services can lead to significant and ongoing improvement in the way your organisation manages documents and information. Having a solid framework for governance, along with a well-defined set of performance metrics, will provide the essential links between strategy, execution and value creation. At Lexmark, we use a multi-tiered global governance model to deliver transparency and value to our clients. The first and middle tiers consist of weekly and monthly operations reviews. These tactical sessions are used for reviewing performance data and project milestones. At the next level are strategic executive reviews, which are held on a quarterly cycle. The purpose of these meetings is not only to review how well the MPS strategy is delivering to expectations, but also to explore opportunities for ongoing cost reductions and greater efficiency through continuous improvement initiatives.

What does Gartner say? According to Gartner, MPS may also include enterprise content management services and workflow optimisation components, such as developing custom applications for smart multifunction products (MFPs) that automate paper- intensive document workflows and route scanned pages to document management systems. It can also be extended to include the restructuring of document workflows. Gartner, Inc. placed Lexmark in the Leaders quadrant in its 2012 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services, Worldwide. Gartner analysts evaluate MPS providers on the quality and efficacy of the processes, systems, methods or procedures that enable their performance to be competitive, efficient and effective, and to positively affect revenue, retention and reputation. Ultimately, MPS providers are judged on their capability and success in capitalising on their vision. According to the Gartner report, "Leaders provide MPS to a wide range of customers, including the largest and most geographically dispersed, so they must demonstrate a truly global reach. They must demonstrate not only the skills to deliver today's MPS, but also the understanding, initiative and resources to prepare for tomorrow's MPS. Leaders characteristically augment the full scope of MPS with a wide range of added-value services. As a result, they are frequently shortlisted by large and midsize customers." 1 Source: Gartner, Inc. "Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services, Worldwide" by Ken Weilerstein etai, October 24, 2012.
