Managed print services
The right information in the right place in the right format
If you need high quality document production but printing is not your core business, our managed print services (MPS) provide customised solutions.
Managed print services (MPS) is a specialist approach that analyses your organisation's processes and workflows for handling documents. Transform how you manage information to increase productivity, unlock the value in your information and reduce costs.
MPS customised to you
Every MPS programme is individually designed to meet your unique requirements. Regular evaluation and measurement ensures continuous improvement.
Stay in control and be responsive
MPS controls costs throughout the document lifecycle, avoiding more capital-intensive investments, and evolving static infrastructure to more responsive solutions.

Throughout the process, we work closely with you to ensure we understand your business, your trajectory and your goals. We learn how your organisation works, collaborates and shares information, as well as how you work with your customers and business partners.
We focus on getting to know your managers and employees, as the ongoing success of any programme lies with them. And we'll work closely with your teams to establish the tools and information to benefit them.
Our partnership approach means we:
- Gain an understanding of your business processes and how you work
- Get to know your workforce to understand their day-to-day information challenges
- Ensure solutions we design and implement are tailored to meet employee needs and business goals

Ricoh’s service management methodology is based on the ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) standard, which focuses on aligning IT services with business needs.
Once your solution is implemented, our Service Managers can assume day-to-day responsibility of your programme. They will work closely with your internal teams to govern, measure and optimise your solution to ensure that the focus remains on achieving your business goals.
Our service managers will:
- Provide a single point of contact for country, regional or global reporting
- Follow a central governance process, so that you and your stakeholders always know what to expect
- Ensure that Service Level Agreements are adhered to at all times
