Cost Analysis Example

Your department currently has 5 printers. Monthly print volume is 1,000 pages for black & white printers and 400 pages for color printers.

Your department is currently paying $.0840 per page for black & white copies and $.1330 for color copies. On the MOS Print Management plan, your department would pay $.012 for black & white copies and $.10 for color copies.

Cost Analysis Table

If nothing changes, your department will continue to pay $137.20 per month for printing. This includes purchasing toner and paper and paying separately for any service performed and parts required.

If your department chooses to join the MOS Print Management Program, monthly printing costs would be reduced to $52.00. Labor, parts, preventative maintenance, and emergency calls are included in this cost. Paper is the only additional cost that your department would incur if they joined the program.

The cost savings of your department joining the MOS Print Management Program is over62%. If you try the program and decide your department is not seeing the benefit you can terminate your membership with 30 days written notice.
