The Problem

Encase is the UK’s premier independent manufacturer of corrugated board and packaging. With sites in Banbury (Oxfordshire), Leeds (West Yorkshire) and East Kilbride (Scotland), Encase manufactures a seemingly endless line of packaging products for its clients. And it won’t surprise you to learn that they do a lot of printing.

Alongside the “everyday” suite of back office printers that are a part of every modern office, each of Encase’s production machines also has a printer connected to it producing an A4 label.

Support and maintenance of the printer fleet was left to the IT team and with such a high volume of prints every day, the cost of the fleet was also a major concern. Encase had tried to manage the cost of their printing by using compatible and refilled cartridges, however this had a significant impact on the quality of the final prints.

The Solution

Working closely with the senior IT management at Encase, AFP Digital conducted a detailed print audit and recommended a managed print plan specifically tailored to each of the three sites.

The solution provided Encase with new printers, all toner & parts but more importantly significant cost savings. A before and after view of Encase’s print solution and costs shows how AFP Digital’s Managed Print Plan delivered a benefit.

The Result

The savings that the AFP Digital Managed Print Plan has delivered would be reason enough for any business to be pleased with the results, however when discussing the success of the plan with management, the fact AFP Digital now deal with any printer related issues direct from the production floor has been the icing on the cake.

“A year into our print plan I can only say the project has been a total success, the projected savings have been delivered. The whole set up from the accountmmanagement, the quarterly machine servicing down to the fact that the spare toners arrive immediately and without issue, it really has been first class”.
