This comes with various implications for the various stakeholders:

Buy cartridges where it is ‘easy’ — costs $$$$
Hassle of figuring out when to buy, what to buy and where to buy from
Hassle of getting reimbursed
Must manage reimbursements
Lose control of cost of printing – costs $$$$
Lose control of print flow security
Cannot control nonwork-related print
Managed Print Service Providers, Dealers & Resellers
Pay for use programs built for offices
Lose page volumes and revenue
Cannot build programs to reach multitudes of home workers
Printer OEMs & Supplies Manufacturers
Current MPS offerings don’t extend into the home environment
Must build from scratch systems focused on home office pay for use vs. existing corporate office pay for use programs
