Education

The education sector is governed by budgets and often delay investing in new technologies as a result of budget limitations.  The high costs of a non-managed print environment is often a strong contributing factor to existing budget limitations.

As with most organisations, the print environment within schools, colleges and universities has normally grown organically.  This means there was no specific print strategy in place for the purchase of new printers and copiers.  As a result, most educational establishments have multiple printer brands and multiple suppliers of service and supplies for these.

Managing a fleet of multi-brand printers and copiers is not only difficult, it is also much more expensive and far less environmentally friendly than operating a fully managed print infrastructure.

The Apogee Difference 

Apogee has been helping schools, colleges and universities streamline their printing and save thousands on print costs for many years.  Our experience in providing education organisations with a Managed Service solution gives us the knowledge and skills needed to recommend and implement the right solution for you.

Apogee can support educational institutes by providing a range of services: from the printing and collation of course materials and security for confidential papers and research, to support of BYOD (bring your own device) strategies.

Our change management support ensures that with any technology implementation, processes regarding how people use it are developed in-line.

NEPA Framework

Apogee has been awarded supplier status to the National Education Printer Agreement (NEPA) Framework. This National Framework Agreement is for the provision of Print Equipment and Managed Print Services, initially for two years but with two potential extensions taking this agreement up to 2020. Read more here.

Our print solution has given us the tools to manage print spend in a variety of ways.  With the new software and the control it gives us, I’m confident that the school is not overusing colour.  If we are, I can identify those responsible and restrict individual usage.
