As one of the leading independent boys’ schools in South London, Trinity demanded a print strategy that would meet their specific needs.
After receiving a quote from their current photocopier supplier, Trinity explored alternatives and were impressed with DMC Canotec’s record of providing expert solutions to the education sector. DMC Canotec offered the school a print audit that would be carried out on site.
Drivers for Change
Prior to supplying a proposal, DMC Canotec carefully audited the school’s current operations. In doing so, DMC Canotec determined the most appropriate solution. This unique approach to the project ensured that the solution was the correct one for Trinity School at the time and in the future. The school’s needs and desires were fully assessed, with key staff members involved in the process to ensure all bases were covered.
DMC Canotec undertook a Print Audit to obtain an accurate picture of the state of Trinity’s printing and photocopying infrastructure. This tracts print activity and identifies areas of waste and the potential savings that can be made. This resulted in a number of recommendations.
uniFLOW software is a print management software that monitors all print activity, giving a clear audited history that allows print and photocopy costs to be attributed to both the departments and students alike. This can be used to track departmental budgets and students’ print costs. These costs can then be deducted from individually assigned pre-pay accounts.
Secure print; the uniFLOW software can be used by students to send an item to print, they can then release this at any machine in the school. This brings greater efficiency as students do not need to print exclusively in the print room.
Replacing printers and photocopiers with multi-functional devices has resulted in greater functionality, improved performance and real cost savings. Trinity School can expect to see up to £150,000 saved over the course of five years.
The School now has secure print and cost recovery facilities. These ensure that accountability is introduced, waste is minimised and confidential documents are only handled by those that printed them.
Trinity School also has an effective managed solution. A mix of machines and software has given the School a successful fix to their print problems. DMC Canotec’s unique approach of examining current facilities and requirements has resulted in devices and software that give Trinity School the best print and photocopy facilities.
