Dublin Business School (DBS) is Ireland’s largest private college. As with any large organisation, IT plays an integral part in the day to day running of DBS. One area of its IT set up that was becoming increasingly unsatisfactory for the school was its printing function, particularly with cost and usage. Ormonde spoke with the DBS’s independent and trusted IT partner Darren Costello, who has wide experience of print vendors and management. Costello recommended OKI as the likely best Managed Print Service (MPS) to address the school’s needs and set about arranging an audit process without obligation to DBS. A proposal was prepared which highlighted the identified savings on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis. The whole installation of 33 new colour and mono printers and multi-function devices was up completed and operational in two days, which was all the more remarkable considering it was rolled out across five buildings in Dublin City Centre.
“Projected monthly costs went from €2,687 to about €1,700. That represents savings of almost €1,000 per month. We now know what the costs are on a monthly basis because they are fixed. This means the financial people at DBS are very happy.” Eddie Ormonde, IT Manager, Dublin Business School
