From the Printware Blog on 16th June 2017 in Managed Print, News

New Print Managed Service from Epson

From the Printware Blog on 15th May 2009 in News, New Products, Managed Print

Epson have launched their Managed Print Service, aimed at medium to large organisations who wish to improve the efficiency of their printer fleet and reduce printing costs. Managed Print Service is a bespoke solution with pricing tailored to match the business needs and includes a click charge service so that customers only pay for what they print.
