Print Journey

“It is information organisation that has attracted the most focus as we take our clients on the ‘journey', utilising a mix of resilient hardware and intelligent software options to offer security, digitalisation, and bespoke workflows, and taking the necessary control and shared responsibility in this area”

Our clients’ requirements have evolved over the years. We have had to become more agile and flexible in our offerings. The barriers to managed print services have long since receded. Economies of scale and enhanced expertise have seen our solutions become more cost-effective and embraced on wider platforms within our enterprise client base. How far can the journey go?

A few years ago, we started the journey in edging closer to a more intuitive way of processing, dealing and handling what was once a paper-driven request within an organisation. It’s part of a wider group of offerings within our current managed services portfolio where MPS provides an ergonomic and innovative platform to finally help bridge the gap to a ‘less paper’ office. The millennial generation are used to moving data through workflows and various mobile solutions without ever seeing a hard copy. They will hold the key in enabling innovation enhancements become the key component of MPS.

This is further backed up by IDC’s recent Western European Hardcopy Survey, with 56% of CIOs looking to downsize the number of vendors they have, and demanding more value-added capabilities from that select group, such as integrating into an organisation’s existing workflow or providing business process re-engineering. IT leaders are looking for a vendor to be more than just a print supplier.

Where are you on the journey?

Today, we provide a more rounded managed service offering. Our value proposition seeks to:
• Economise your print
• Rationalise your workflow
• Organise your information

It is this latter point that has attracted the most focus as we take our clients on the ‘journey’, utilising a mix of resilient hardware and intelligent software options to offer security, digitalisation, and bespoke workflows, and taking the necessary control and shared responsibility in this area. Indeed, one only has to look at the MPS landscape and trend in Ireland, where clients are keen to “outsource” these services in their entirety with a single vendor.
We support this through a robust business methodology, SeRVO, which has underpinned our enterprise client base for more than a decade. SeRVO brings real value to our clients and project teams. In mid-2016, this was further enhanced in our collaboration with MAPS, a business process specialist. Together, we are identifying and designing solutions specific to our clients’ key requirements.

Key amongst these requirements is the security and protection of company data. Our solutions comply with all data protection legislation. Data Loss Prevention protocols have been an integral part of our Solution design for the last five years. The forthcoming EU GDPR will continue to bring this issue sharply into focus over the next 18 months, and Bryan S Ryan is strategically placed to meet this need.

However, we regularly see many organisations overlook this increasingly critical area. It remains one of our key project goals.

The journey continues…
