What do you know that you know? FACT: In most establishments, the true cost of office printing is unknown.
Printing at Penn: Current State
Known Annual Cash Outlays for Print Support $7,200,000
The True Costs? FACT: In an unmanaged print environment, the true costs of office printing are typically 2-3X the known costs. FACT: In an unmanaged print environment, the true costs of office printing are typically 2-3X the known costs.

Additional Data Points 90+ instances of MPS on campus; wildly variable rate structures B&W: $ $0.25 COLOR: $ $0.14 Ratio of ~ local printers for every networked print device Ratio of ~1.50 print devices per employee 2,000+ staff hours to manage supplier contracts and order/maintain consumables $1,400,000+ spent annually on ink & toner $400,000 savings if Penn used compatible and remanufactured toner cartridges $2,000,000+ in carried ink & toner inventory on campus Costs $ thousands per year in lost opportunity costs and cash flow restrictions Average institutional cost per page: $ $0.25 (conservative)
Managed Print Services (MPS)
What is Managed Print Services? MPS typically includes: multi-function printers (MFP’s), copiers, scanners and fax machines ink/toner supplies preventive maintenance parts and break/fix service equipment up-scaling and down-scaling flexibility guaranteed service level response times single contract for increased buying process efficiency and buying power usage reporting and analytics Managed Print Services (MPS) is a service that analyzes and manages document input/output devices to: improve efficiency and productivity reduce electronic, paper, and plastic (ink/toner) waste reduce the total cost of office printing reduce support burden to IT staff manage the printer fleet with greater visibility and control Managed print ≠ networked printers.
MPS: How does it work? Print Assessment Optimized Print Environment A print assessment process typically includes: 1.Physical walk-through of print environment; floor plan mapping of devices 2.Data Collection via software tools (“DCA” – Data Collection Agent) 3.Business process evaluation and key end-user interviews 4.Optimization recommendation to client, tailored to precise client requirements Unmanaged Print Environment Networked Print Environment RIGHT-SIZED BEST PRACTICE FINANCIALLY SMARTER SUSTAINABILITY-FOCUSED Optimized Managed Print Environment Large Workgroup Printer Local Standalone Printer
MPS Program Benefits Waste reduced Increased service levels Better sustainability posture Free-up staff time Reduce costs High toner usage on documents can be costly, especially color (or same-day, if required) Costs unaffected by high toner usage
12 Ways Managed Print Services Can Reduce Costs Implementation of a robust MPS environment typically reduces print costs by 25-40%. 1.Optimization of the print fleet: right size & location for the volumes generated 2.Implementation of duplex printing 3.Reduction of printed pages 4.Optimization consumables/toner usage 5.On-demand consumables supplies – no need to keep inventory 6.Proactive support and maintenance 7.Consolidation of parts and service expertise requirements 8.Fewer devices, fewer device types 9.Increased product reliability 10.Energy efficient print devices 11.Consolidation of supplier relationships 12.Enhanced leverage through campus-wide print volume

Strategy Summary & Proposal for Improvement TARGET: Develop a highly flexible, scalable managed print framework that can be leveraged by anyone at Penn Set the standard for office printing across campus. PROPOSAL: Constitute a cross-functional core team than can: identify school/center/department/building(s) with a desire to implement a Managed Print program assess the marketplace (including incumbents) for capabilities execute a formalized RFP, selecting a preferred supplier partner through a weighted scorecard approach implement, measure improvements, broadly communicate success, and enroll more participants BENEFIT: Best pricing/value on campus Enhance Penn’s campus sustainability posture Impact local job market & economic inclusion efforts Implement best-in-class business practices for office printing Free up staff time currently spent managing/supporting print devices, supplies, and supplier relationships Reduce cost, on-campus supplies inventory, direct & indirect waste, while improving Penn’s overall cash flow SITUATION: >20,000 print devices on campus; net add several hundred year-on-year. Penn acquiring over 1,000 new print devices per year; net add “hundreds” annually 3 suppliers providing some form of Managed Print Services; inconsistent fees charged Inconsistent buying practices for supplies; inconsistent pricing schemes among suppliers Penn pays up to 10x more for office printing than what it could cost Current practices are financially unsustainable, notwithstanding the environmental impact >$7.2M (that we know )
The Approach to Building a Strategic MPS Framework 1. Identify business areas seeking an MPS solution; validate interest 2. Inform incumbent suppliers of intent to go to market 3. Gather internal requirements and volumes 4. Draft a formalized Request for Proposal (RFP) Document 5. Finalize internal sponsorship, alignment, and requirements 6. Send RFP to market (proposals received October 12) 7. Evaluate proposals, short-list suppliers 8. Conduct parallel, competitive print environment assessments with short-list 9. Evaluate finalists’ print optimization recommendations 10. Award contract; define the overall MPS framework 11. MPS Program Launch 12. Continuous Improvement, Ongoing Evaluation

Volume leverage: Best-in-class service levels and overall value for business areas that opt-in Unified reporting of print data against established measures Access to printing subject matter expertise and superior print technologies Highly attractive MPS account in a very competitive market Minimally effective implementation provides significant and irrefutable cost savings and environmental benefits SUMMARY: Why do this, and why now? A robust, flexible MPS strategy: –complements Penn’s Climate Action Plan –further supports the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment –saves money, drives sustainable behaviors, and is a best-practice –is increasingly in demand across Penn’s campus It is the right thing to do.
Scoring Methodology for RFP Responses Method Employed: Since all suppliers fundamentally meet the basic requirements for MPS, we will score each RFP question response relative to the competition. RFP sections will be prioritized and weighted. Scoring Key: 5 – “Best answer, most desired response” 4 – “fourth best” 3 – “third best” 2 – “second best” 1 – “Least desired response” 0 – Unable to Score; Not Applicable; Completely Fails Penn Requirement Evaluator Comments: All evaluators are encouraged to use the ‘Comments’ section with each RFP question to help support future evaluation team discussions. Special Circumstances: If you do not possess adequate expertise or information to make an informed ranking on a particular RFP question, input “0” for all responses on that question. This will force a “wash” on that question and not affect the overall ranking in your individual scorecard. Purchasing will account for this in the overall tabulations.
Commercial & Financial Risk Evaluation Commercial analysis focuses on: –ability to meet Penn’s diverse customer and delivery requirements –collection of incumbent supplier performance feedback –financial solvency to continuously grow the company and adequately fund operations –known and potential litigation risks –ability of Penn to influence the product offering and marketplace –(typically) understanding Penn’s negotiation position; ability to achieve a high value cost structure –(typically) contract legal terms and conditions When reviewing a company’s financials, we analyze: –overall financial solvency of the firm –ability to support continued operations for anticipated contract term –ability to support current indebtedness and simultaneously continue internal investment for growth –financial assets to support upswing/downswing in business during term
Other Considerations Scalability OEM agnosticism Holistic document management capabilities Ability to maintain leading edge on industry trends, technology Ability to implement a unified program across a single campus with highly diverse customers Local economic inclusion Ability to benefit the most people at Penn Ongoing process improvement and continuous cost savings
