In my 31 years of working with strategic partners, I have not found another company that is as trusting and does what they say they are going to do (or is transparent as to why a goal can’t be met). They are more than consultants who make recommendations and walk away. They actually have print experts on staff that will help you with developing a strategy, implementing the strategy, reporting on findings, tracking savings and sustainability metrics, helping with RFPs, etc. They are a key member of my print team and I wouldn’t have achieved the results I have without them.

enterprise print conundrum

The Enterprise Print Conundrum

Whether it is process-based or rooted in personal habits, print happens.

And it does so in three environments: in the office (or in a student’s dorm, or mobile or hybrid worker or work-from-home worker), in an internal production facility (be it a copy center, a print shop, or in a data, print, and mail operation), and externally sourced.

The price an organization pays for not managing print holistically is millions of dollars every year.

My organization thrust me into rolling managed print out across campus, a task I had very little relevant experience for. Thankfully my path crossed with Keith’s and I soon found myself being guided through a crash course in managed print, emerging best practices, among the myriad details one has to master to successfully administer a managed print contract. Keith not only quickly brought me up to speed, but also prepared me to think critically as numerous vendors issued sweeping statements without delving into the details, and the devils that lived among them.

Under Keith’s guidance my institution saved close to seven figures a year over previous spend, improved and expanded service, increased uptime to better than 99 percent, all while improving the customer experience. His tutelage has well prepared me to draft our next print RFP, with lessons learned last time around sure to increase savings further. Keith’s frank habits and willingness to speak directly to how the print industry works has been a breath of fresh air in an area where the cost centers are often buried in the details while expenses accumulate a decision, a click, and a penny at a time. My school has been well served by his patience and willingness to share his encyclopedic understanding of the print industry.
