SOLAS Saves €60k Annually Following Ricoh-Managed Print Deal

SOLAS Saves €60k Annually Following Ricoh-Managed Print Deal

A Ricoh-managed print deal has enabled SOLAS to make annual savings of approximately €60K, Ricoh announced on Thursday. Ricoh won the deal following a competitive tender process and installed multi-functional devices across four floors at SOLAS’ headquarters in Dublin’s Docklands.

Ricoh was commissioned by SOLAS to install Aficio MP C3003 printers in its Dublin offices, replacing approximately 200 desktop printers and make annual savings of approximately €60k annually.

To further reduce unnecessary costs, the printers require each user to use their own personal swipe card. The printers reduce waste by deleting print jobs that aren’t printed within 24 hours. They also order their own toner when the current cartridge is running low and register service requests.

By reducing the number of printers used on a daily basis, SOLAS has also reported a significant reduction in energy consumption and costs. The savings help SOLAS to achieve its Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) reduction targets. These are in line with the overall public sector targets to deliver 33% energy efficiency savings by 2020.

The streamlined print system has allowed SOLAS to benefit from a fully managed print service. All printers operate on the same network and can be monitored remotely.

Facilities Services Manager at SOLAS Adrian Browne said: “Previously, everyone had their own printer and they were all different makes and models. There used to be a bit of a panic when a printer went down.

“The new printers are a big success story for us. We even increased our order to accommodate increased demand. The finance team is delighted because it has resulted in budget savings and allowed us to get greater value for the public funding we receive. Crucially, Ricoh’s sustainable solution is also reducing energy and paper consumption, and helping us to meet our energy efficiency targets.”
