Brother UK analysis finds five-figure saving for business that switch to MPS


Switching to managed print services (MPS) could represent a five-figure saving over three years, when compared with traditional printer ownership, according to new analysis from Brother UK.

The business technology solutions provider’s new total cost of ownership calculator reveals how an organisation using five Brother MFC-L9570CDW professional all-in-one colour laser printers, as part of an MPS agreement, could save £16,535* over a three-year period. Customers would also benefit from additional services including automatic ink and toner ordering and installation and maintenance support.

The calculator finds that a typical small business using Brother’s popular MFC-L8690CDW multifunction printer could save £1,569* over 36 months. The calculations compare the cost of owning and running the printers over a 36-month period with using an MPS deal for the same duration and volume of printing.

The analysis follows the launch of the technology company’s new MPS proposition. Last year, it launched three different managed print solutions – MPS Essential, MPS Professional, and MPS Enterprise – designed for the needs of different businesses, from small organisations with a single office through to complex multi-site corporations. Brother has made it simpler for reseller partners to sell contract printing by tailoring the offers to the typical needs of these distinct customer groups.

Greig Millar, Chief Revenue Officer at Brother UK, said: “MPS offers the opportunity for channel partners to help their customers to save significant sums of money. Along with the financial savings, users get the benefit of extra support including automatic re-ordering of supplies and technical support both during the initial setup and ongoing. Plus, at the end of the deal, users have the option to upgrade their printer instead of being committed to the model they have purchased.”

Brother UK has seen rising demand for MPS as businesses seek cost-efficient printing. Pages printed via the vendor’s MPS agreements and its devices on contract rose by 23% and 32% respectively over the financial year ending 31st March 2023.

*Cost saving based on a monthly print volume of 2,000 pages or more per printer – roughly 100 pages per working day. Prices and savings quoted on selecting an MPS Essential plan are based on the Suggested Retail Price (SRP) as of October 2023, over a 36-month period and are indicative only. Actual pricing and savings may vary.
