Here's the truth
This is a great example of how the consumer is ripped off by manage print services. you only pay for the parts - and the price of those parts are more than what you should be paying. Your per page cost is also more. I've had customers brag that they only pay 1 cent per page and the labor is free. For starters that's a 200% markup for your supplies and the truth is you don't really know what you're paying per page. Here's how it works. You make the deal for one cent per page but that based on a 5% coverage. So when you print more than 5% coverage you billed as if it is 2 or 3 times the agreed price. But what if you print at less than 5% - do then charge you less? NO. Also will your per page cost decrease with time? After all toner cartridges always decrease with time. The answer - NO. So you decreased your printers which decreases the production of the company, you really don't know what you're paying per page, you don't benefit if your printing is less than 5% coverage, and your locked in to a service provider - but you don't pay for labor. Why do you think so many companies are promoting Manage Print Service? They make more money from the customer while the customer thinks they're getting a great deal.
