Marshall Logo

Marshall Construction Group employs 187 people working on everything from major urban regeneration schemes to building fit-outs and refurbishments.

The Elland based company had 39 printing devices in place costing a considerable amount and was printing just under 17,000 colour copies per month which, on its own was costing over £3,000 per month

ABS UK recommended just 19 DEVELOP printing systems to overhaul the company’s print management as many of its printers were inefficient and didn’t come with maintenance, meaning they would break down, often leaving the company without a printer, or having to buy new devices. This will result in estimated savings of:

Saving Year 1                                 £25,000.00

Saving Year 2                                                                  £50,000.00

Saving Year 3                                                                                                         £75,000.00

Lyndhurst Primary School

Lyndhurst Primary School & Children’s Centre based near Stockport provides the best possible education for boys and girls aged 5-11.

Pre-ABS printer spend on a Xerox ColourCube and Ricoh MPC5000 was just over £2,000 per year. These costs exclude any running costs on the machines which were approximately 10p per copy on the Xerox printer.

Following a FREE print consultancy we proposed three NEW Ricoh MFDs with finishing capabilities, all equipment comes with embedded PaperCut Managed Print Software. With new cost-effective equipment and a multi-faceted, cost saving print software in place this new system will lead to the following savings:

Saving Year 1                                 £2,611.40

Saving Year 2                                                                     £5,222.80

Saving Year 3                                                                                                         £7,834.20

Cassellie

Cassellie combine the best quality design with affordability for a wide range of bathroom products

Following a standard ABS Print Consultancy we discovered that Cassellie were spending over £700 per quarter on consumables for various HP printers.

Our recommendation included installing two cost-effective Develop MFDs which now cost just over £300 per quarter (including running costs, toners, repairs and maintenance). Cassellie will now make the following projected savings:

Saving Year 1                                 £1,352.00

Saving Year 2                                                                     £2,704.00

Saving Year 3                                                                                                         £4,056.00

Their team includes PR experts, but is also made up of copywriters, content marketers, social media bods and designers, to ensure all communication needs are met.

Faith’s pre-ABS printer spend was approximately £2,700 per year on consumables for one Brother and one Epson printer. This was an expensive, unreliable solution for their print needs. These printers often broke down and would therefore be without printing equipment for long periods.

Following a FREE print consultancy we recommended a Develop 22 ppm multi-functional device which came with print, copy and scan facilities as standard. This new system led to monthly savings of just over 30%:

Saving Year 1                                  £870.00

Saving Year 2                                                                     £1,740.00

Saving Year 3                                                                                                         £2,610.00

Amvoc

Based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, Amvoc are a professional, dynamic, skillful and hardworking sales and marketing agency.

The firm previously utilised four printers across their branches and were spending a considerable well over £2000.00 per year on printer consumables. Due to the printers being at separate branches there was no cost monitoring procedures in place and the company’s running costs spiralled during busy periods.

We used our expertise to make recommendations to the business going forward and installed three new Develop MFD machines resulting in savings of approximately 25%:

Saving Year 1                                  £767.98

Saving Year 2                                                                     £1,535.96

Saving Year 3                                                                                                         £2,303.94

IE Bolt Logo

I E Bolt & Nut Ltd in Bradford is a long established, family firm with over 30 years experience in the fastener industry, offering an extensive range of high tensile, hexagon headed bolts and bolt blanks.

This organisation’s pre-ABS printer spend was approximately £2,000 per year on one Lexmark printer. This was an expensive solution for their print needs, limited what could be done with documents and had no scan facility.

Following an extensive audit we recommended a Ricoh multi-functional device which came with print, copy and scan facilities as standard. This new system with the appropriate management software led to savings of just under 50%.

Saving Year 1                                  £835.20

Saving Year 2                                                                     £1,670.40

Saving Year 3                                                                                                         £2,505.60

Keystone is a leading supplier to the global industrial colorant marketplace. They also provide comprehensive technically based applications and business solutions to turn the challenges of utilizing colour into opportunities and revenue for their customers.

Their pre-ABS system consisted of 10 desktop printers which were not only complex to monitor but came with high consumables costs of just under £1,000 per quarter ignoring capital expenditure.

Following a Print Management audit it was obvious a more efficient and cost effective solution was necessary to reduce costs and match equipment with users and need.

ABS installed two new Develop A4/A3 multifunctional devices (MFD) and one A4 desktop MFD. All staff were trained on efficient use which resulted in the following:

Saving Year 1                                  £915.28

Saving Year 2                                                                      £1,830.56

Saving Year 3                                                                                                          £2,745.84
