At the beginning, Barratt’s were using an unconsolidated fleet of devices across their business units. From an exisiting Managed Print Service arrangement in Head Office but a fleet of personal desktop printers across all building site cabins and sales suites. This lead to a significantly high costs, along with difficulties in managing technical issues when they occurred.
Recognising room for improvement, Digital Office delivered an up to date, consolidated fleet of devices to all locations including new building sites, marketing suites and 27 regional offices. This process required the roll out and installation of 1100+ A3 & A4 MFD’s to over 700 building site cabins and offices around the UK.
