Our Managed Print Services encompass a variety of print services and products available to our clients. Whether it's offset printing, embroidered or screen printed apparel, promotional products, or large format graphics, they're all available to our clients at cost plus 10%.
Our services can be as simple as being a preferred vendor, to being more involved in guiding client purchases, to being highly involved and serving as advisors/decision makers.
The level of services is dictated by each client and priced according to our level of involvement
For clients who simply want to purchase at our cost plus 10% pricing, membership starts at just $300 annually. That's less than the cost of an entry level employee for a week!
Like anything, Managed Print Services aren't for everyone. However, if your company or organization is spending upwards of $1000 on print, apparel and promotional products, then it's a good idea to at least get a few quotes to see the savings.
Generally, we save clients an average of 30%. Take a look at your spend from last year, or what you have budgeted currently. If 30% of that figure is more than $300 then you'll save money and have a highly experienced professional on your side, working for you.
One of the key benefits to our Managed Print Services is the cost savings on employee salaries and benefits. No one would entrust an entry level employee with purchasing, but using an Entry level salary of just $24,000, THE SAVINGS ARE SUBSTANTIAL.
This is a simple comparison that shows the savings over that entry level salary and benefits using the BLS costs of benefits as 30% of salary.
An entry level employee can't buy at cost and doesn't have our experience and expertise, AND, even if you paid us $1,000 per month, you would still save $19,200.
We don't require a salary, benefits, days off, vacations, sick days, taxes, AND we can purchase for you at cost. The math proves the savings.
The cost of our services is far less than your savings.
That's how we can guarantee to save you money.
It's that simple.
Because our client base is so diverse, we can't tell you exactly what your cost will be without knowing more about your purchasing habits, frequency, and total spend.
Most clients order products 1-2 times monthly, some less.
That means we aren't spending a lot of time on any single client. Other clients order frequently and requiring more of our time. Should they pay the same membership fee?
No, of course not. That wouldn't be fair.
Some clients pay us just $25 per month, while others who require more of our time, pay $500 or more per month.
In every single case the fees are less than the client savings, which is how we guarantee net savings for every client.
Our clients pay cost or wholesale prices, have an expert working for them that handles all the details of purchasing, and they are guaranteed an overall cost reduction. Period.
We manage purchasing, reduce costs, clients pay us a portion of their savings. That's how truly simple our business model is.
No games, no gimmicks. Just facts.
Honestly, the standard business model is adversarial. It pits buyer against seller, and is fraught with bribery and unsavory business practices. If you're interested, read along and you'll soon realize your vendor is your adversary, NOT your ally.
The entire premise of buyer versus seller is adversarial, and it starts with price.
THAT IS CLEARLY an ADVERSARIAL RELATIONSHIP.
You pay for it all. Every bit of it. It's built into the cost of the products you or your buyer purchase. And guess what, every year around the holidays, sales people and sales managers evaluate each client to determine how big of a bribe, um, "holiday gift basket" they get this year. That's a fact.
All those nice little "gifts" are designed to influence the buyer. Period. It's great for the buyer who gets all the goodies, but it's bad for the company. Over time the buyer directs more purchases to their "favorite" briber, um vendor. The one who gives them the best bribes... um, I mean, the best doughnuts and bagels. Maybe the best lunches-dinners and event tickets?
Once a vendor has adequately bribed the buyer, they will increase prices and the buyer will accept the increases. The unspoken relationship has been established. The buyer will begin to accept miscellaneous charges or "up sells" that increase vendor profit but do little for your company. This is standard operating procedure for the standard business model, which is why some companies actually have set limits on gifts, etc. It doesn't matter, it just goes under the table at that point.
Our business models are designed to empower the buyers. We did our time working the "Standard" business model, and frankly, it's an ugly, corrupt game that we refuse to play any longer.
Our Managed Print Services Membership puts our clients first. We've removed the profit motive from the equation so we don't "up-sell" or offer "add-ons" that provide little to no value, but increase your cost. We simply don't do it.
As our client we'll give you the truth about pricing, products, and we'll look out for your best interests. That's what our clients pay us to do.
Our clients pay us our management fee to look out for their best interests, and that's what we do.
