We Provide Managed Print Services

Printing and copying costs are a significant regular outlay, for all businesses, and very often overlooked.

The Real Cost of Printing

Print supplies and maintenance account for a whopping 90-95% of the total cost of Printer/fax ownership. This is where the real savings can be made.

Here at DataTrust, we provide Managed Print Services, which can reduce your printing costs by up to 50%. 

Pay per Copy

We use a pay per copy system that will reduce your costs significantly and also increase your productivity.  In addition, we go further in reducing costs than other providers.  Toner is one of the most costly aspects of printing, with colour toner said to be more expensive than the finest champagne.

Intelligent Billing

At DataTrust, we use an “Intelligent Billing” system that automatically calculates the colour toner you use to produce each page and varies the billing accordingly.

Instead of being charged per page for colour print, our "Intelligent Billing" system analyses how much colour was actually utilised in a particular colour print and applies discount where lesser amounts of colour toner were used. 

It makes sense that there should be a difference in cost between a colour print that uses only 5% colour on the page and a colour print that uses over 80% colour on the page.

The difference in cost can amount to substantial savings for you.

DataTrust Managed Print Services - Free Print Audit

We can carry out a Free Print Audit of your current printing set up, in order to determine, what you are paying for print at the moment.  We can then advise you on the amount of savings you can make, if you choose to engage DataTrust, to manage your print services for you.

Most organisations that we encounter are happily buying toners on an ongoing basis, calling out the service engineer as required etc. without any idea of how much they actually spend on their print. They are often surprised when we carry out a print audit and present these costs to them.

In DataTrust, we have actually come across organisations that didn't even know how many printers they had, never mind what printing was costing them!

The real cost of printing:

  • On average, 1-3% of annual revenue is spent on document output - Print and Fax
  • For some sites, as much as 40% of the calls can be print orientated
  • The actual purchase generally represents 5-10% of the total ownership cost of the printer / fax machine
  • That means that supplies and maintenance account for a whopping 90-95% of the total cost of ownership. This is where the real savings can be made
  • Toner alone, over the life of the printer, costs more than maintenance and the initial cost of the printer. It is the single greatest cost related to the ownership of the printer


DataTrust Managed Print Services can reduce your printing costs by up to 50%

Managed Print Services work on the basis that, more often than not, the customer purchases their own printer either outright or via leasing. It is actually possible to include the purchase price of the printer in a per copy model but, in general, we advise against this - we feel that it does not deliver real value to the customer.

Once the printer is in place, now the issue of the Cost of Consumables and service has to be considered. It is generally accepted, that the "Per Copy Billing" delivers the best savings for the customer. When you think about it, most workgroup laser printers / MFPs are costing about 12c per page for colour and 2c per black page. "Per Copy Billing" can deliver the same service, from DataTrust, for less than half that!
