UK’s Croydon College to save IT cost with Ricoh Production Print application

UKEngland’s Croydon College is expecting to save £500,000 in IT costs over the next a three years period on print costs through Ricoh Production pPrint application.

Ricoh replaced the college print room’s existing equipment with a Ricoh Pro C751S colour device and two Pro 1357EX high-volume mono machines.

The new system will also free-up staff time, ensuring teaching staff ers are able to spend more time teaching instead of managing and printing documents.

By installing Ricoh applications, the college improves value for money across its print services by reducing the cost-per-click and centralising the printing of class handouts, information booklets used to support teaching.

In addition, the Ricoh equipment integrates easily with existing print systems as the College was already using print management software to manage its network of satellite MFPs.

Croydon College Services Manager Mark Watson said the value for money and efficiencies it achieved with the Ricoh print application play a key role in education at Croydon College.

"In fact, lecturers often make the print room their first port of call in the morning to collect their handouts for the day," Watson said.

Croydon College had entered into an agreement with Ricoh in August in 2010 and it expects that within next three years the saving could be about £500,000.

Under the deal, the company will integrate its application with the college’s existing print management software in line with company’s strategy to direct much of the printing work away from MFPs and desktop printers.
