Felsted School is an English co-educational day and boarding independent school in Felsted, Essex which offers boys and girls aged 14-18 a first class education, based on a rural 80 acre village campus. The school provides a modern, global approach to learning, with a depth of heritage boasting 454 years as one of the oldest and finest schools in England.
Felsted School recognised the need to organise and consolidate their print infrastructure, and required a supplier with the capability to supply and install a standardised fleet of devices each at different locations across their 80 acre campus.
In addition to a new, standardised fleet, Felsted School wanted to put in place an effective and efficient print and document strategy to reap rewards including greater print visibility and improved experience for staff and pupils.
After going to tender with four different companies, Felsted School decided on Apogee as their supplier of choice. As Europe’s largest provider of print, document and process technology and outsource services, Apogee ticked all the boxes.
Apogee’s project management team, experienced in dealing with complex, multi-site implementations, conducted a plan which included the supply and installation of 66 Ricoh devices across Felsted’s 80 acre campus.
Along with the new devices, Apogee’s Professional Services team put forward a bespoke solution based on their assessments which consisted of best-of-breed print management software to deliver a new level of innovation and print efficiency.
The installation ran smoothly with minimal disruption to the school’s staff and pupils. Felsted applauded Apogee’s project management and engineering team for their high attention to detail and professional service.
Following Apogee’s Professional Services team’s assessment, the installation of print management software has further driven efficiencies and modernised operations by allowing pupils and staff to release print jobs from any enabled output device.
What’s more, Apogee’s provision of print management software also delivers complete visibility of throughput across all networked devices by user level, strengthening governance and control of printing across the entire campus.
