Disaster recovery plans are a cornerstone of business resilience, safeguarding vital IT systems and data. However, the often-overlooked print infrastructure plays a critical role in ensuring business continuity during crises. Managed Print Services (MPS) emerge as a valuable ally, offering multiple advantages to fortify your disaster recovery strategies.

Mitigating Print-Related Risks

MPS excels in minimizing threats to your print environment. From data breaches to device failures, human errors, or natural disasters, MPS providers implement robust security measures. Features like encryption, authentication, and access control safeguard your print data and devices, thwarting unauthorized access or tampering. Remote monitoring and management ensure devices are up-to-date and well-maintained, and backup and recovery solutions, including cloud storage and failover, preserve your print data and settings, ready for access in the face of disruptions.

Ensuring Print Availability and Performance

In a disaster, print infrastructure must remain reliable. MPS steps in with solutions like cloud printing, mobile printing, and virtual printing, allowing printing from anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Redundant and resilient print servers, networks, and devices handle high volumes and complex workflows without compromising quality or speed. With proactive and reactive support, including alerts, diagnostics, troubleshooting, and repairs, MPS swiftly resolves any print issues, ensuring uninterrupted operations.

Reducing Costs and Complexity

Disasters often come with financial burdens, but MPS can help alleviate them. By optimizing your print environment, consolidating devices, reducing waste, and automating processes, MPS drives savings in hardware, consumables, energy, and labor. Simplifying print administration through centralization, streamlined billing, reporting, and standardized policies and procedures, MPS saves time and minimizes complexity. Moreover, MPS aligns your print strategy with your business and disaster recovery objectives, ensuring your print infrastructure supports continuity and resilience.

Incorporating Managed Print Services into your disaster recovery plans equips your organization to tackle challenges effectively. With reduced print-related risks, enhanced print availability and performance, and lower costs and complexity, MPS emerges as a strategic partner in safeguarding your business's continuity and security.
