What is Facilities Management?

You may have heard us talk about “facilities management” before. At LRI, facilities management is one of the services we offer our customers. Through our facilities management program, we provide professional print experts to manage a customer’s print shop full-time. Get it? We literally manage their facility…cool. Our employee stays on-site at the print shop every day, printing jobs, maintaining the equipment, and making sure our customer gets the most out of their investment. Our expert also monitors supplies and black/white and color performance, taking all of these responsibilities off the hands of our customer so they can focus on their business. Currently, LRI managed print facilities for West Des Moines Community Schools, Heartland AEA, Midland Information Resources, and Pioneer Hi-Bred International.


Why does any of this matter? Well, if you don’t print to the level where your organization requires a dedicated print shop, then it might not. But if you do (or if you think you might grow into that in the future), then facilities management can be a real asset to your organization. Instead of worrying about maintaining machines, monitoring their performance, and printing documents from all over your organization, you can leave that all to LRI and their experts with industry experience. You also don’t have to worry about hiring and integrating someone with the appropriate credentials, because we take care of that on our end. You can focus on your daily operations with no fear of disruption, since we provide 24/7 service for your equipment.


Our experts will save you money as well, since they can provide preventative maintenance to keep your equipment running efficiently, as well as ordering in bulk from our suppliers to get cost savings. Our managed print facilities print millions of images per month with machines from Konica Minolta, Xerox, and Oce.  We can also implement software programs to make it easier for your entire staff to upload documents and print them remotely from anywhere. We even developed a custom application with Konica Minolta Printgroove for West Des Moines Schools. So if you are looking to save money, time, and stress on your high-volume print needs, give us a call and we can talk about a facilities management solution!
