Armor Office Printing is broadening its business activities with a new range of services: OWA Print Services (OPS) – a complete digitalised printer fleet management system for small and medium-sized businesses. This solution guarantees ease of management and savings for businesses. By choosing OPS, businesses also join a sustainable development logic thanks to OWA's 100% remanufactured cartridges.
OWA Print services responds to the following observation: 90% of SMEs are not fully aware of their printing-related spending. However, it is the 3rd non-production expenditure item after salaries and rent and can account for up to 3% of the overall turnover (1). Printing is a daily task for IT teams as it makes up 40% of support requests. Armor Office Printing has therefore chosen to offer a turnkey print management system to free SMEs from these constraints.
Thanks to an application which can be set up within 10 minutes at the client's premises, Armor can track the level of consumables in real time to ensure automatic restocking. This system allows the business to save on stock and limit its expenditure to the reality of its consumption. The OPS offer simplifies print management by making Armor the company's only contact point, and by delivering one quarterly invoice for the entire fleet. The company gains budget visibility thanks to cost per page invoicing and competitive prices which are fixed throughout the duration of the contract. The solution includes full printer maintenance throughout France and allows the fleet to grow naturally.
Unlike the MPS offered by printer manufacturers which require clients to replace their entire fleet of printers, OWA Print Services adapts to the existing fleet and takes over the optimisation of the life span of the machines which are in good condition, while giving advice about the development of the printer fleet. Moreover, OPS includes OWA's collection service so that all the consumables are collected and fully recycled. To demonstrate this ecological commitment, OPS clients are supplied with a personalised materials assessment which they can use in their CSR reports.
