The challenges for PwC was they require a new print infrastructure which will be more productive, but it would lead to huge capital expenditure cost.
The Quick Fix
It is but natural that any taxation & audit firm carries lots of information about other companies & it should be on-screen. Though it needs any significant amount of printings. PwC had a giant volume & high quality of output expectation from its printer fleets. It was very important for PwC to come with the right solution, so the service was provided by Elpees MPS partnered with Hewlett Packard. Elpee’s print system plan advised the most capable HP printers like HP Laserjet 4345 mfp, HP Laserjet 5035 mfp & HP Laserjet P3015.
As PwC was require the pay per print model which seems to be ideal for them & it was aligned by Elpee Managed Print Solution model. This managed the printing system & the volume of the printing. Elpee also had a station site engineer on the PwC premises who will continuously look after the printing fleet. The engineer also looks after the availability of consumables as part of the client business.
