A smooth-running and multifunction solution for tyre specialist Thomas Plankenauer
Tyre specialist, Thomas Plankenauer is a family business that has been growing for decades. Almost a million pages are printed at Thomas Plankenauer every year. For this reason, the company has a speciﬁc requirement for cost-effective, intensive printing and product reliability. In collaboration with OKI, a cost-saving solution was developed for Plankenauer. All 17 branches print up to 50,000 pages per year, so safeguarding its system against failure was the company’s top requirement. OKI proposed a ﬂat-rate plan that provided Plankenauer with a Managed Print Service over ﬁve years. The ES7170dn, an A4 mono MFP was selected for the company, a sturdy and economical printer with an excellent running performance and a high toner capacity. With its cabinet and second paper tray, the MFP transforms into a practical, free-standing device. Any consumables are of course replenished automatically. As soon as the MFP toner level drops below 10 per cent, OKI ensures that a replacement toner is delivered.
“All in all, the devices run smoothly. OKI’s printers are the right ﬁt for our company. Whenever any questions came up during the project implementation phase, our supervisor coordinated everything centrally, both on an international level, as well as in conjunction with our regional service partner.” Rudolf Fischer, Head of IT & Infrastructure, Thomas Plankenauer GmbH
