  3. 3. To understand Printing as a Service (PaaS) it is important to know managed print services (MPS). In a typical MPS agreement you have a provider that will sell or lease you a printing device and then service those devices on a maintenance agreement based on a cost per page that varies depending on the printing device. With MPS you get supplies (toner, ink), parts (rollers, fusers) and labor (technician that can work on your device). MPS normally has two transaction types: the maintenance agreement and a purchase or lease of the printing hardware.
