Brother UK introduces new subscription service trial

Brother UK has launched a pilot of a new print subscription service for small firms, PrintSmart Essential, following a successful year for the company providing managed print services (MPS).

The solution will enable businesses to pay a small monthly fee for their supplies, device installation, supplies recycling, and maintenance services while benefitting from a three-month notice period. 

Brother UK says that this will provide resellers with a more accessible MPS offering for their customers, which requires no credit agreement and can be cancelled at any time. 

PrintSmart Essential is available on a range of Brother inkjet and laser devices, including the MFC-L8690CDW colour laser printer and the MFC-J5945DW colour inkjet device. 

Greig Millar, General Manager for Sales at Brother UK said, “MPS represents a key area of growth for the print industry in general as more businesses recognise the benefits of greater simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and productivity through having their devices managed. 

“PrintSmart Essential meets the growing demand from smaller firms for non-committal subscription services that we know reseller partners in the market are looking for. Unlike the offerings from competitors, there is no credit agreement, no contract, and no long-term financial commitment. 

“This solution completes our MPS range, which spans from the complex, multi-service offering for large, networked businesses, through to PrintSmart Essential, our new, low-cost print subscription service. 

“Brother is committed to supporting firms to deliver great work – no matter their location. This solution represents a significant milestone in making print simpler and more effective for small businesses, and we look forward to working with our reseller partners to continue providing more accessible services.”

PrintSmart Essential packages range from £17 to £62 per month depending on page allowance and the model of printer.
