MPS is beginning to dominate the Print Industry

MPS has been adopted as a sales tool by most printer and MFP manufacturers and larger resellers as the modern way of shifting boxes with improved profit margins.PURO Academy Logo

Many large clients are handing over ownership of their printer and photocopier fleets with the expectations of saving money without first baselining their costs.

Organisations will find out the hard way once they realise the new MPS costs, unless a tight control is maintained internally.

I have seen large Councils enter into MPS contracts without even the true knowledge of the fleet numbers never mind the the volumes.

Many of the MPS deals remind me of the return of the Copyplan era of the 80’s and the eventual investigations by the MMC commission.

It will be interesting to see the full impact on the market in years to come.

Where has 2010 Gone???

PUROSolutions have had a very busy start to 2010 and before we know it, February has been and gone. More Clients are looking for transparency and independence and we have secured an audit contract that will keep some of us busy throughout March and April.PURO Academy Logo

A Print Audit at a London company introduced us to a totally new industry sector and the security clearance we obtained back in November enabled us to convince the client on our security credentials prior to undertaking the audit.

The current project is progressing well and after a week on site we are pleased with our progress.

More and more Public Sector Organisations are looking to us for advice prior to engaging our services and we have a number of interesting clients in the pipeline.

Print Management Software continues to be a challenge for some organisations to implement due to the high levels of security and risk policies now in place. Our Manual Print Audit processes allows us to ensure we are able to acquire the necessary data from multiple sources.

We are keen to hear from any other organisation wanting to discuss Independent Print Audits.

December has finished on a real high….

December has finished on a real high with the completion of a manual print audit at a prestigious multi-site client in London. PURO Academy Logo

The demand on Independent Print Audits has continued to increase as all hardware suppliers are promoting audits and using audit results as a sales tool. As a result PUROSolutions are sense checking an increasing number of supplier led audits with some intriguing results.

2010 promises to be an exciting year and the team are looking forward to more challenges.

Finally we would like to thank all our clients for their support over 2009 and wish them continued success in 2010.

It’s been a few weeks….

It’s been a few weeks since the last post. It’s been a challenging few weeks with a PURO Academy Logo of audits over different industry sectors. Nevertheless we have managed to deliver on a number of key milestones.

Independent Print Audit companies like ourselves have become increasingly busy since Print Audit awareness has been increased by many non-independent companies promoting and using print audits purely as a sales tool for their own equipment.

Our web activity continues to increase and our pipeline is strong approaching the final month of 2009.

A number of Print Audit Academy seminars will commence in the North from mid January and our marketing team will be looking to arrange seminars throughout 2010 as a way of generating awareness of spiralling print costs and as a method of promoting our services and good work.

Interesting talks continue this week a on a number of fronts.

If you you like to talk about independent print assessments then please give me a call.

PUROSolutions increase their print assessment activity.

The last week has proved to be an eventful week. Whilst waiting PURO Academy Logo for confirmation on a couple of substantial pieces of work, a couple more print assessments at prestigious companies arrived unexpectedly. The added bonus was that both clients are in different sectors, and therefore the success at each of them will lead to further work in those sectors.

The two Print Assessments will be undertaken as soon as possible so as to keep as many days as possible clear over the next 8 weeks. The couple of days spent in the south this week proved to be very productive and business relationships were further extended.

The art work for the full page advertisement in the Chamber Directory was completed on Friday and although the item was rushed to achieve the closing deadline, we are pleased with the results and look forward to receiving more business as a consequence.

Careful monitoring of website activity shows that work patterns appear to have changed over the last year with fewer Friday visitors to our websites. We not too worried about the Friday figures dropping providing the the overall weekly figure continues to rise at its current rate.

The Google ad campaign gathers momentum with increasing visitors month on month. That does mean that advertising costs also rise!!! Just hope revenue continues to rise in line.

The momentum continues for PUROSolutions

Despite all manufacturers and resellers promoting Managed Print Services we are finding PURO Academy Logo the PUROSolutions name and reputation is widening across the country. The website activity continues to grow and the quality of visits continues to increase at the same time. All the global giants are visiting the www.printaudit.co.uk site. The Academy is also attracting some interesting visits.

The pipeline looks good for the 2nd half of the year and we are looking to commence with a couple of new clients in the next couple of weeks.

The associate network has strengthened providing new leads and assistance on current activity.

We have evaluated a new product this week with a view to entering some varied but lucrative markets.

The discussions on the NHS project continued with a further meeting in the Midlands. We need to apply a little time to this project within the next few weeks.

Productive Week for PUROSolutions

It’s been a busy and varied week with performance review meetings, with clients andPURO Academy Logo suppliers in the south, new technology meetings today in Sheffield and 2 new routes to market developed this week already.

A further visit to site at one of our North West clients provides the final jigsaw piece to complete the Print Audit report.

The website stats look like hitting an all time high this week and the Google Ads costs are creeping up with some potential business off the back of it. The PUROSolutions Web presence is developing at such a rate that it may be worthwhile investing in some website improvements to reflect the overall professionalism of the organisation.

Usage analysis from the Print Management Software at one client has identified some interesting discrepancies. It will be interesting to undertake similar analysis at other client sites to check if any trends are apparent.

A busy time is now envisaged in completing a number of Print Audit reports.

PUROSolutions enter their fourth year of Independent Print Audits

PURO Academy LogoPUROSolutions are now into their fourth year as Independent Print Audit Specialists.

We are looking to take the Company and our Services to a new level of development based on our success to date with a number of the top Councils and Corporate companies.

Our reputation is now firmly established and our knowledge of the Industry coupled with our Totally Independent Status bodes well for the future.

We are still one of the very few truly Independent Print Audit Companies and more and more organisations are now realising the true benefit that our transparency brings to their organisation. Many companies are also recognising from experience that there is no such thing as a ‘free print audit’.
