Konica Minolta provides Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Foundation Trust with fully managed print and workflow support

London, UK | 22 June 2023

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd has supplied Ashford and St. Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Surrey with a managed print solution, which provides full visibility of the print function and saves the Trust an estimated £82,000 a year, along with considerable time.

Ashford and St. Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust now has a modern print solution which has dramatically reduced the complexity and cost burdens of a previously disparate print fleet, whilst ensuring each department has exactly the print and document capture facilities needed to ensure the smooth running of hospital operations.
Konica Minolta has so far supplied 320 of its bizhub multifunction devices (MFDs) and installed the YSoft SafeQ Workflow Suite software. This provides the capability to implement document capture solutions via the MFDs, ensuring information is widely available for any operational purpose, whilst ensuring security, transparency, and compliance of data.
Highly efficient, the fully managed print solution provides much greater transparency of usage and costs and removes the considerable capital expenditure of adding new printers, thus enabling the Trust to fully control its resources and spend with full accuracy. With an all-inclusive cost per copy, the managed print solution is estimated to save the Trust around £82,000 a year.

The savings have been considerable in terms of the direct print costs as the managed print contract has brought these into line, consolidating everything into one supplier and a fully transparent cost. The customer service from Konica Minolta has also been very good. It understands that we need the right support, and doesn’t just install the devices, there is the essential follow-up support and development work that ensures our print solution continues to deliver for our needs.
