Marshall Construction Group
Marshall Construction Group is a commercial development and construction company based in Elland, West Yorkshire.
Their work includes major urban regeneration schemes, fit-outs and refurbishments. The company employs 187 people, who between them previously worked across 39 different devices, printing out close to 17,000 colour images a month, costing more than £2,500.
Marshall appointed us to examine their current printing systems and boost overall print efficiency. The ultimate goal was to reduce print expenditure through-out the business and to reduce the amount of time taken to order consumables for over 30 printers scattered across their site in Elland.
A Better Way
We recommended and oversaw the implementation of almost 20 printing devices across the Group, including maintenance structures, which has helped Marshall significantly slash ink, toner and repair costs at its head office previously estimated at £50,000 a year.
The systems we put in place ensures that 80% of all output is now printed in black and white, with 150,000 email print-outs automatically converted from colour, and 5,000 duplicate print-outs denied, saving significantly on waste. Overall, an estimated 50% of print costs have been saved.
Since introducing a managed print solution the company has adapted well and have modified their behaviour to think before they print thus saving money and reducing the environmental impact of printing and their business. This has resulted in savings close to £13,000 saved in the first six months.
“Moving to a managed-print solution service has not only helped us financially, but has also brought time and user-friendly benefits. All of our devices now come from the same supplier, which helps alleviate redundant inks and toners when a machine breaks down. The ordering of toners is done automatically by ABS, so there is no need for different parts of the group to order their own inks and toners. The same applies if a machine is faulty.”
“We took a great deal of time to assess the market before making a decision and we very much hope our partnership with ABS continues.”
