BDO LLP’s relocation of its three London locations into a purpose built 90,000 Sq ft office in Baker Street was a catalyst for more efficient working. The company had a wide range of inefficient desktop printers and standalone copiers, which were regularly failing. Not only were the devices unreliable, but BDO also found itself wasting large volumes of paper through paper jams, and suffering from high consumable costs as there was no centralised device management or reporting. Document security was also a major concern for BDO.
BDO was keen to ensure that any new solution would be problem free. Following a thorough requirements audit, Apogee set up a ‘proof of concept’ trial at the new London office. Testing was carried out by BDO’s in-house IT Department and a number of key users for one month. Taking a phased approach, the solution was implemented to all 1,800 users within the London office. Nine months later results and feedback were analysed to calculate the cost and efficiency savings achieved. The solution was then rolled out to the remaining 13 offices in England and Scotland.
