Transform your view with managed document services from Lexmark

Do you have a clear picture of your document output environment? Chances are you’re lacking this clarity since analysts estimate that 80 percent of business content is unstructured or unmanaged, and of that, nearly half is paper1.

What is managed document services? 

Managed document services (MDS) are services provided by external parties to optimise and manage an organisation’s document infrastructure and workflow for both printed and electronic documents.

MDS is closely related to managed print services (MPS) and the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Typically, “managed document services” carries the broader meaning of referring to both print and electronic documents. However, as MPS has evolved over the years, it also includes electronic information and workflows. This is why MPS and MDS are so closely linked.

Analyst firm IDC refers to the market as “managed print and document services” rather than “managed print services” to reflect the growing trend towards services that manage electronic as well as printed documents.

See tomorrow differently

With managed document services (MDS), you can gain visibility and control of the entire document and print environment for your business. This goes way beyond reducing printing and paper usage. Just as your business is always evolving, managed print services and managed document services continue to evolve to help organisations meet the information challenges of today and tomorrow.
