A Clear Direction
As a young and dynamic institution, the IT team of Marlborough College Malaysia (MCM) knew exactly what they needed – convenience, control and cost efficiency. They were adamant that the selected provider offers both multifunction devices (MFDs) and print management solutions in tandem.
Today, people read their emails or other documents on the go via their mobile devices. MCM wants to extend this convenience to the next level – to be able to print off their devices. In addition, the college wants their staff to be able to collect their print jobs from MFDs that are most convenient to them.
MCM is aware that as an organisation grows, unchecked print and copy costs may create a burden on its overheads and become a bane to administration. Right from the start, they want to maintain a firm control over who is authorised to print or copy. For example, colour printing is to be limited to certain users and photocopying is to be restricted. Importantly, MCM needs to be able to track and control print and copy usage, and maintain clear accountability.
As with any other organisations, keeping overheads low is always a management priority. MCM needs a partner that not only provide the print and copy solutions that they need, but also tools to help them manage and control their cost in an effective and accountable manner.
