If you carefully calculate per page printing cost for your company, the high number will definitely surprise you. This high per page cost is primarily because of i) the high cost of expensive overpowered printers, ii) the servicing, spares, electrical power cost of maintaining these overpowered printers and iii) because all users have unrestricted access and unlimited printing rights.
With Elpee’s Managed Print Solution you get total print fleet management along with the best printing practices like not using the cheapest printer to run, but using the most cost effective printer for the print load, at that node. We also deploy Managed Print Software to restrict user access and implement quotas. The fine tuned best print process significantly reduces printing cost, even as you pay per print.
Hence, the main Managed Print Solution benefits are:
By fleet rationalisation, Elpee uses few right-powered printer models, at the right nodes.

Elpee also passes on it’s expertise and economies of scale in buying of printers, paper and consumables, to reduce printing costs significantly.
