The main objectives upon renewal were to see if improvements or additional features could be offered on the current MPS Solution and to identify any further potential for reductions in cost. They were interested in examining the features and benefits of a Pull Print Solution and how it could complement their new suite of devices.
Stacked upgraded all 16 existing HP devices and installed a PaperCut Pull Print Solution on all of the new MFPs. Document release and control was implemented via Employee Security Swipe Cards and Card Readers. A mix of four different HP models were selected for their suitability for the different business areas.
The implementation of a PaperCut Pull Print Solution would allow Thornton’s to reduce costs through unnecessary wastage. It also offers greater security and enhanced GDPR compliance. Installing the Card Reader functionality as an additional layered solution means that there are now less touch points on the shared devices, which is good news from a hygiene perspective. Adding additional output accessories for Credit Control means that time spent on labour intensive jobs could be significantly reduced.
Thorntons were very pleased to see that all of their original objectives had been met and even surpassed, with reduced print volumes, reduced waste, improved efficiencies and enhanced security and compliance all resulting in additional cost reductions. In relation to Covid-19, they were also reassured by the fact that the new Pull Print and Card Reader Solution reduced the number of touchpoints on the shared devices.
