Xerox Corporation and Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. are pioneers in the MPS business. In IDC’S 2011 MarketScape report for Managed Print Services (MPS), Fuji Xerox was positioned as the market leader. The report, which analyzes MPS vendors and delivers an overview of competitive fitness, highlights both companies’ ability to serve companies of all sizes through their continuum of MPS services.
According to the 2011 Photizo Group report, the worldwide MPS market reached US$31.2 billion in revenue in 2010, up from US$25 billion in 2009 and the Asia Pacific region saw significant growth of 39% to US$2.2 billion. Xerox topped this worldwide market share and maintained a strong lead in the Asia Pacific with Fuji Xerox. Thus far, the focus of MPS has been on MNCs.
PagePack is highly targeted at the needs of SMEs, including its adaptability to the frequent upgrades and relocations carried out by SMEs, thus catering to their fast changing nature. It is perfect for SMEs (10 to 30 employees or more) and with smaller print volumes of about 2,000 a month and with A4 colour and monochrome printing needs.
PagePack enables SMEs to capture significant, cumulative savings in printing in more ways than one and achieve effective budget control for printing. By including all consumables, break-fix service and hardware in a cost-per-print program, PagePack eliminates high initial acquisition cost for printers – a key concern for SMEs. Moreover, with PagePack SMEs can access high quality colour printing without having to make costly investments. They can also now make highly accurate office printing budget forecast as PagePack provides regularly-scheduled invoices that gives clear visibility of printing costs.
With PagePack, SMEs are also able to attain high productivity. The do-it-all solution frees up IT resources for more business-critical tasks rather than managing printing devices and also frees up procurement resources by simplifying vendor management for supplies and service to one contact. Furthermore, PagePack also helps SMEs to monitor the printing fleet easily by making it possible to order supplies or services conveniently online. Overall, PagePack aims to instil ease of use of its platform and creates peace of mind with its daily operations.
PagePack opens the door for SMEs to enjoy high quality printing in full colour at lowered costs. By leveraging on PagePack’s unique cost-per-page, tiered colour printing, SMEs can, for the first time, boldly and extensively adopt colour in all aspects of their business to capture greater attention, increase efficiency and even boost profits.
