After Apogee audited over 1,000 assets across the trust’s 11 locations, a ‘printing less for less’ solution was implemented. The solution includes a mix of multi-function devices, printers, and the print management software, PaperCut.
PaperCut ensures the security of every print, copy, and scan job. To add an extra layer of security, documents are held on a secure sever until users authenticate to release the jobs.
To align the trust’s digital agenda, all the new HP devices were networked, giving users greater access to scanning and document capture facilities.
Apogee also worked alongside the trust to create and implement new print policies. To future proof the policies a future state design, to meet the requirements of each area across the organisation, was agreed. Some of the policies are user-to-device ratios for clinical and non-clinical areas, colour devices default to black and white, and double-sided print and copy is as standard.
Due to the scale of each site, coupled with the required service level agreements, Apogee provided a full-time on-site engineer at each hospital site.
