  • 1. MFD Project Peter Nicholls 28 Feb 2012
  • 2. Introduction In Feb 2011 : • We removed 25 Copiers from old supplier • We installed 50 MFDs from Datasharp. In May 2011 : • How did we go about it? We removed c 300 printers
  • 3. The Reality….
  • 4. The Reality • Printers were mostly black and white • Photocopiers were old and frequently out of action • Hardly any printers or copiers were networked • Copiers were relatively few and far between – 24 • Very few scanners – 3? • Copiers and printers were very expensive • Toner costs were high and extra • Prices raised 10% p.a. • High levels of waste • Minimal duplex printing • No real idea who was incurring what costs • IT team’s time wasted maintaining 300 printers
  • 5. The Perception of the old way…
  • 6. Perception v Reality of the New Way • My printer is convenient right by my desk • I need secure printing • The pupils need to print in class • SEN • Early Years • I need to print: • Envelopes and labels • Invitations • Quality colour • If the network goes down we are doomed • I will end up wasting time queuing
  • 7. Addressing the ObjectionsAddressing the Objections Addressi ng the Objectio ns
  • 8. Addressing the Objections • Learning best practice from visits to other schools • Engaging an industry consultant • Consulting with a representative User Group • Reps agreed/ compromised on e.g. MFD locations • Consulting with Heads of Departments • Consulting at staff meetings • Responding to every query and objection … we were listening • Making reasonable exceptions • Leaving Art / Boarding out of scope
  • 9. The Process • Communication • Industry consultant and tender process • Print audit • Design solution • Tender • Weekly project management meetings with IT team and supplier • Conference calls and shared area • Project plans, owners and actions • Decisions required • Training • Transition between installation and removal of printers
  • 10. The Problem…. The Solution….• Printers were mostly black and white • All colour MFDs• Photocopiers were old and often out of action • New MFDs, SLA with teeth• Hardly any printers or copiers were networked • All networked MFDs• Copiers were relatively few - 24 • Now have 50 MFDs• Very few scanners • All MFDs scan to email• Copiers and printers were very expensive • Toner costs were high and extra • All inclusive pence per copy • Prices raised 10% p.a. • Capped at RPI • High levels of waste • Code input at MFD • Minimal duplex printing • Default duplex • Colour only printers • Default black and white • No idea who was incurring what costs • On-line management reports• IT team’s time wasted maintaining 300 printers • Printers removed
  • 11. Something must have worked …. • Art department saw the quality and switched over • Boarding Houses jumped on the bandwagon • Our survey said…. • 72% agree / completely agree the solution has been to their benefit • 3% completely disagree
  • 12. Key Messages – Datasharp v Old Supplier(NB Excluding Lease Costs) Total % Var £k Var• Total Annual Volumes 3.7m ↓11%• Total Annual Costs £41k ↓39% 26• A Saving of Total Colour Volumes 565k ↑65%• £300k Total Colour Costs £25k ↓22% 7• Colour Volumes as % of Total 15% ↑7% pts• over 4 Year Life Colour Costs as % of Total 62% ↑13% pts(Including Lease Costs, assuming 4 year life)• Total Annualised Costs £99k ↓ 43% 75• Total Cost per Copy 2.7p ↓36%
  • 13. Lessons learnt – what worked• Communication• Working out the best solution - iteratively• General training• Commercial arrangements• Service levels• Exceptions• Transition – retaining printers for a while• Quality and functionality• Reporting • identifying training needs • re-positioning MFDs with low usage • Avoiding unnecessary spend
