Printing - Anyone gone fully managed?
Looking to hear from schools with a fully managed, 3rd party printer solution in place (i.e you get someone like Cannon or Ricoh to sort it all out).
I guess I have a typical setup of various networked printers (about 40) along side a dedicated reprographics room where someone does the copying for teaching staff but would love to hear from schools who have gone down the fully managed route as we spend a crazy fortune on printing. I hear some places have removed basically all their printers and installed fancy printing rooms which only release jobs when someone turns up and keys in their personal number which I think would vastly reduce .
To me that sounds like it will save me a fortune but could do with some experiences or company recommendations. My school is starting to tighten up its belt a little and wonder if I can not only save them some money but also offload all printers to a 3rd party in one swoop.
Open to all suggestions.
