Granard Primary School had mono printers in every classroom, and a small number of colour devices that were operating at a very high cost. The school was losing control over printing, consumables and stationery. Toner and paper was being purchased as and when required, with the usage increasing as the school was expanding. The school was spending too much on print.
By evaluating the existing fleet and the capabilties of every device, it became clear that the school was using a number of donated second hand printers, which had very high consumable costs. A large proportion of the desktop printers were also deemed to be not fit for purpose.
A full document print assessment was conducted, closely analysing print volumes, paper usage, colour usage, and the infrastructure. This helped Apogee to identify the most suitable software, and a floorplan was used to strategically place devices in the most suitable locations.
