“It has been an excellent relationship and both HP and Stacked have delivered on everything they promised. We are now moving on to the second phase, which will look at secure print solutions, such as HP Access Control.”

Pages Printed

With over 10 million expected prints over the lifetime of the contract – that boils down to over 225,000 prints per month.


8 x HP A3 PageWide Managed Color MFPs,  24 x HP LaserJet Managed Printers,  13 x HP LaserJet Pro MFPs, 8 x HP LaserJet Pros, 4 x HP LaserJet Managed MFPs and 1 x HP PageWide Managed Printer.


The new printer fleet is much more energy efficient with a reduction in carbon emissions of 71 per cent.


Frank Keane realised instant benefits with its new HP MPS platform, not least savings of 28 per cent, equivalent to €94k over the course of the contract.


“The reliability of the HP devices means that downtime is largely a thing of the past and, when issues do occur, Stacked is on hand to resolve them quickly. From a performance perspective, print speeds have improved. For example, the time it takes to produce the first page after switching on the printer has reduced dramatically – and all these seconds add up across the estate.”


Automated toner replenishment removes the need for onsite inventory. Consolidation on six models streamlines consumable stock management. Stacked provides first line support to resolve any issues quickly. Dedicated print servers make printing to any device simple.

The Objective

Frank Keane had accrued 74 printers from multiple vendors, requiring 52 different types of consumable. The company wanted to replace its heterogeneous print environment, consisting of 24 different models, with a more efficient and cost-effective MPS solution.

The Solution

Working with Stacked, Frank Keane implemented a HP Managed Print Service (MPS), replacing all the aging printers with 58 brand new devices from just six product lines, reducing the need for multiple consumables.

Frank Keane signed a five-year contract, which provided 58 entirely new printers, consolidated on just six models, rather than 24, and 12 consumables, rather than 52. The devices include eight HP A3 PageWide Color MFPs and 49 HP LaserJet printers. Automated toner management means that cartridges are dispatched as and when needed, instead of building up costly inventory onsite.

The Reasoning

“HP’s strength of product across both A3 and A4 was critical in achieving the right balance of devices across the locations,” says Ancker. “At the same time, Stacked’s experience in managing other similar organisations in the same sector lent credibility to the offer and around the ability to deliver the required service.”

The Result

Through partnering with HP and Stacked, a Premier HP MPS specialist, to implement a Managed Print Service, Frank Keane consolidated their print environment to just six models and 12 consumables. The company has cut print costs by 28 per cent equivalent to €94k over the
course of the contract – and that’s using HP consumables instead of refilled cartridges. Additionally energy consumption has been reduced by 71 per cent.

Seamless Deployment
“The roll-out was very smooth – within a week, Stacked had installed all the printers across our six locations as well as deploying dedicated print servers, which made it easy to print to any device. Support is also provided by Stacked so, if there is an issue, it can be resolved without involving my IT team.  HP MPS is less expensive than managing printing in-house – we get all the benefits of leading print technology with one predictable monthly cost. We couldn’t ask for more.”
