The Sovereign Housing Group is one of the UK’s largest housing associations with more than 1000 staff operating from 13 regional offices. Sovereign provides and manages an estate of over 38,000 homes across the South and South West of England.
The fleet was a mix of different makes, models and ages, which would not only limit the ability to integrate it fully with a new system but was also a cause of frustration for users with inconsistent functionality, different toners and a lack of confidentiality some of the issues highlighted.
Apogee rationalised the fleet into a single, unified brand of networked MFDs and integrated this entire fleet into a new print management system.
Having a unified fleet delivered Sovereign Housing Group improved functionality, while integrating the print management system enabled them to have controlled access by users, linked to staff ID cards already used for parking and door access. All actions could be monitored and reported on to show the costs and volumes of each user, and automatically comply management information (MI) reports.
