ABS has used its expertise and industry knowledge to help two Calderdale charities make significant savings on their annual printing bills.
Calderdale SmartMove, which delivers services that address the needs of homeless and vulnerably housed people in Calderdale, including learning and training programmes, will make close to £1,500 in yearly savings on their print costs following a charity-specific print audit.
ABS supplied state-of-the-art DEVELOP print equipment, upgraded the organisation’s overall print infrastructure and will also provide remote support, which will ensure that SmartMove no longer has to buy its own toners or cartridges when old consumables expire.
The savings made total £120 a month, which equates to £1,440 over a full year – a significant sum for the charity.
The Community Foundation for Calderdale (CFFC) is also set to save money after ABS donated new, cost-effective print equipment to replace their existing machines, which have been provided on a maintenance contract, so there are no rental costs.
The CFFC manages and distributes funds on behalf of individuals, companies, trusts and statutory bodies to meet the needs of people living in the Calderdale area.
ABS have also recently teamed up with the CFFC and Calderdale SmartMove to deliver The Home Run Project, which aims to utilise the benefits of running and exercise as a means of boosting mental health and well-being of homeless people in the area.
Craig George, fundraising and relationships manager at Calderdale SmartMove, said: ““All of us at SmartMove are really happy with the quality and service we have received from ABS.
“Our new machines have made life so much easier for all the staff here whilst saving us money along the way.”
Steve Duncan, CEO of the Community Foundation for Calderdale, said: “Printing and copying is the lifeblood of our organisation so we take it really seriously.
“Our decision to go with ABS was easy because of the support they were willing to give us. We have an excellent machine that we love, the service is second to none and the engineers are really efficient.”
John Lees, managing director and founder here at ABS, said: “Through the charitable arm of our business, The ABS Foundation, we make regular and significant contributions to good causes throughout Calderdale and beyond.
“We’re pleased to have been able to assist two charitable organisations in Calderdale continue their vital work in the area, by helping them to reduce their print costs through the supply of modern printing equipment, and analysis of their print requirements.”
