When COBRA realised paper-consumption was costing the London office threefold – for storage, consumables and secure disposal – a move to greater paper-less working was instigated. With paper an inevitable part of the business, COBRA’s main drivers for digital-change were to gain greater control of all associated print costs and to improve information security, reducing the risk of sensitive information being left unattended on printers.
Reducing the number of printers from five to three uniFLOW devices, DMC Canotec has enabled COBRA to put an end to unnecessary printing and improve security, as employees use pin numbers to activate the printers.
The DMC Canotec team also helped COBRA to tackle some initial employee resistance to change, by explaining the benefits of the quick and secure system which enables users to print at any device without delay.
In the seven months since DMC Canotec’s uniFLOW has been introduced, print behaviours have changed dramatically, and paper-usage has halved.
Giving COBRA greater control of the volume and cost of its printing, the changes mark important strides towards a paper-less work environment. The uniFLOW system also provides an audit trail of which documents have been printed, by whom and when, which helps COBRA to meet compliance obligations and ensure information security.
