Clifton High School goes for a one vendor approach – with OKI
Clifton High School in Bristol is a lively co-educational and independent all-through school – from nursery to sixth form – with over 500 pupils. In recent years, the school had accumulated a mix of different types of printers from a variety of vendors on an ad hoc basis. Each of these came with a different maintenance contract, with their own individual contacts and conditions. As such the equipment needed a range of consumables, at different times and from a long list of vendors. As a result the overall printing function was time-consuming and expensive to manage. After conducting online research and comparisons, the school chose OKI to provide the new service, settling on a variety of A4 colour printers and a number of multifunction printer (MFPs) for scanning and copying as well as printing. The total package comprised around 20 new printers replacing the larger, mismatched collection of devices previously in place all around the school.
“The school’s printing function is now much more efficient and less expensive. Any maintenance needed comes from the same source, regardless of the printer type and higher capacity toners mean there is less downtime.” Janos Fulop, IT Manager, Clifton High School
