The Independent
Managed Print



we are

We get it. 

You currently have copiers and printers and as far as you understand, they seem to work fairly well. 

Your contract and service plans are reviewed every few years and when it’s time to upgrade, you will most likely stay with the same copier and printer brand you’re using now. 

You don’t even think about this critical business process infrastructure until you find out there’s an issue at the office or, the printer sales guy offers an upgrade sometime during your contract………at about what you’re paying today.

Sound familiar? 

Well, you’re not alone as 92% of businesses stay with their current provider at upgrade time and pay a significant premium for the experience.

Channel IP is a team of expert independent consultants in the Managed Print industry.

Our consultants work for you, our clients and not for any supplier, reseller, dealer or manufacturer of printers and software.

Our focus is to significantly drive down your print, scan and document management costs by unveiling both the good and bad aspects of your current state and advising how to leverage your businesses strengths to lower costs, without operational compromise.

Our Clients

The MPS Industry Challenge.....

Currently, there’s a dozen different manufacturers and hundreds of dealers, resellers and agents within the ANZ marketplace.

Each supplier has wildly different offerings and capabilities to attract, win, integrate, service, retain and maximise profitability on your businesses contract.

In a growing, prosperous, profitable marketplace, supplier services should only improve but as this technology sector declines, most suppliers are severely laboured by large overheads resulting in a high cost of sales for you, the client. The market is in a constant battle to shed cost whilst struggling to deliver service obligations on long term contracts.

You can guarantee that each supplier is scrambling to create and validate complementary and alternative profitable offerings, usually in the form of managed IT and digital transformation technologies.

Your only problem here, is not understanding and controlling the risk.

  • Daily, our team observes how each client manages their printer fleets, contracts and cost points so differently to the next business.
  • Daily, our team observes examples of how each client business manages their printer fleets, contracts and cost points so differently, to the next business.
  • Seasonal and irregular reviews of this critical business process infrastructure is not enough. Does all hell break lose when a copier or printer in your office starts to falter?
  • The suppliers contractual obligation can be improved and cost points can be reduced, always.
  • This technology, as commoditised as it is today, can be better understood, customised and streamlined to suit your actual business needs.
  • Do you understand the operational risk in advance of contractually committing long term to a supplier?
  • The suppliers contractual obligation can be improved and cost points can be reduced, always.
  • We look forward to doing smart business together.
