The Problem

As part of The Kennel Club office relocation, the existing print infrastructure needed updating, but specific requirements had to be achieved before a technology overhaul would be undertaken. The Kennel Club issued a tender to invite potential providers to present their recommended solutions and understand what the whole of the market could offer.

“Apogee have totally delivered on every promise formed within our Tendering process. Follow me print has allowed The Kennel Club to reduce cost and make us greener. It has also allowed our staff to adapt easily to our new open office plan without any interruption to our day to day business activities, especially how we output printed documents.”

The Solution
