We know you game the system when it comes to your MPS tools. We know you buy one license and share it with multiple people. And we know why — to save money. But there is a clear disadvantage to the seat-based pricing system — you must sub-optimize. When everyone’s work must go through the person currently in possession of the license, it turns into a bottleneck. With seat-based pricing, you also often find yourself playing rotating license key — chasing down the license key and coordinating login times. Questions frequently arising from people using seat-based are, “Who is using the license key now?” or “Who is logged into the account?”
I used to think that using classes in my code meant that I was using an Object-Oriented approach. After some time, I realized I was mistaken.
While I was reading the book "Clean Code" by Robert C. Martin, some examples took me by surprise. There were some examples used for demonstrating the procedural coding style and OO coding style that were using classes and methods. This article will share the insights that I have learned since then.

Charlie is an account manager for a Managed Print Service (MPS) company in the Pacific Northwest and she is having a rough year. 2020 was supposed to be record shattering. It’s been more of a roller coaster than she could have ever imagined. She is facing new and increasing pressure to deliver value, and save money for both existing and new customers. Adding to this challenge, many businesses are operating with remote employees now, resulting in an alarming drop of consumables. So how can Charlie effectively show her customers how to save money and optimize their print fleet, while also winning new deals and growing MPS for her company that so desperately needs new sales? An accurate Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) engine could give Charlie the edge she needs to keep current accounts satisfied, and win new deals.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) can be a powerful sales tool. In contrast to simple cost-per-page comparisons, utilizing detailed TCO calculations for a potential customer’s current fleet can help MPS providers convey the comprehensive cost savings and value generated by the MPS solution they are selling. However, TCO is only useful if it is good TCO.
