Saving them £50,000 a year by improving efficiency and reducing printing volumes

In order to achieve the best value, Bio Products Laboratory decided to use the national public sector Multifunctional Devices and Services, Managed Print Services and Print Audit Services framework agreement (RM1599). Developed collaboratively by Crown Commercial Service (CCS), Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) and Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO), the framework offers a range of products, services, and suppliers to cater for the varying needs of different public sector establishments.

Challenge

Bio Products Laboratory appointed Konica Minolta to provide an extended print service under lot 2 of the framework agreement which offers a full catalogue of multi functional devices and services, including Print Room services from four suppliers. “We wanted a single supplier to provide managed, costeffective services and provide us with options for the future,” said Andrew Paynton, Head of IT at BPL. “The Konica Minolta approach was different and they responded to all our requirements in a professional and structured way. Our initial objective was a limited rollout, without additional security and other software upgrades. They listened carefully, in contrast to other suppliers who seemed fixed on selling us what they thought we needed. Konica Minolta’s solution was based on the brief – they showed a good attitude.”

Solution

Konica Minolta’s detailed analysis, which also covered environmental impacts such as electricity, toner use and CO2 emissions, has enabled BPL to benefit from a series of initiatives, including installing 62 multi-functional networked devices – less than half the previous total – to save around £50,000 a year in print running costs as well as reducing print volumes by around 30%. Simple steps have also been introduced, such as double-sided printing.
