Managed Print Services (MPS) is an ever-accelerating trend in the document solutions industry and for good reason. Managed Print Services looks at per-page cost as the “bottom line” in contrast to the final price point of office equipment. The key is that all costs associated with leasing/owning and using printing and imaging equipment, including maintenance and ongoing support are taken into account. If you are a business owner, you need to know what MPS is and how it can save you money. But what should you be looking for?

The General Data Protection Regulation deadline is fast approaching! The GDPR is intended to harmonise existing Data Protection laws across the EU. Firstly it will strengthen the rights of citizens around the use of their personal data. It will also increase the responsibility on data processors and controllers when undertaking the lawful processing of personal data of EU citizens. The foundation of a GDPR compliant system is a well designed and secure information system. An unsecure print system can leave your organisation vulnerable for two reasons: it is a point of entry for an attacker, and printed documents themselves can be a source of data loss.
Below are 5 practical steps you should take to have your printing system comply with GDPR requirements:
In today’s competitive market, the ability to efficiently access and disseminate information is fundamental to business success. Digicom partners with Ricoh Managed Document Services to offer tailored solutions to optimise your document processes so that accurate information is securely available when it is needed.
Our service addresses the three essential elements of document management:
– The creation of information

– The processing of information so that it delivers business value
Each Managed Document Services solution is designed around your needs, both in terms of your goals and how your business works.
The way we work today is changing and our workplaces are having to adapt to the ever increasing demand for mobility. Mobile devices and cloud based productivity apps mean that employees are connected to their tasks and colleagues no matter where they are or what time of day it is. At the same time, businesses are embracing big data, and trying to figure out how they can integrate the Internet of Things into the workplace in order to improve productivity,
performance, customer interactions, critical decisions and revenue generation.
Eurofound, an EU research body, had a traditional desktop print function that was costing too much time and money. But since deploying a Digicom and Ricoh Managed Print Service, the organisation has transformed its print service. Costs have been cut by 30 percent and device numbers by over 80 percent, while efficiency, speed and quality have been improved. Staff productivity has increased and IT staff have realised a significant fall in support time and effort.
Managed Print Services (MPS) is no longer about managing print output but about managing information.
In today’s business climate, reducing and controlling costs is more important than ever. When a business is preparing its strategies to increase revenues or improve business processes, it may not integrate its document management costs.
Companies that embrace a Managed Print Services (MPS) approach and implement a comprehensive output management strategy can realise substantial benefits

Samsung Smart MultiXpress Wins 2 Editor’s Choice Awards
The critical acclaimed Samsung Smart Print range – Samsung has brought smartphone-like ease of use and expandability to its new MFPs.
Samsung is shaping its print offering to meet the challenges of the office of the future
Launched at September’s IFA 2014 consumer electronics exhibition in Berlin, the ten new MFPs are the first of their kind to be equipped with an Android operating system. The combination of Android OS and Samsung’s Smart UX Center, the same touch technology used in Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets, provides a familiar user interface and a scalable platform for individual printer apps – just like a smartphone. It also allows the printers to operate independently of a PC with on-the-go connectivity through Samsung Cloud Print.
This, says Mark Ash, General Manager of Samsung Electronics’ Print Division in the UK and Ireland, makes the Smart MultiXpress series ideal for the flexible working practices employed by businesses today.
