  • New contract to improve print services across campus

    The University has recently undertaken a tender for the provision of print services.  The outcome is that Danwood will be taking over the provision of  multi-functional devices (MFDs) and the University will be exiting the relationship with Ricoh as current leases expire or are transferred to a new arrangement.  

    Danwood are the UK’s leading independent managed print and document centric service provider offering specialist support and expertise.

    The overall aim of the project is to redesign the University’s printing services to make them more reliable, more efficient, less wasteful and more sustainable.

    Key benefits of the project include:

    • Campus wide improvements to print, copy and scanning functionality
    • “Follow me” printing enabling increased accessibility to secure printing across campus
    • Significant savings and efficiency gains
    • Reduction in overall paper usage
    • Improved servicing and maintenance of equipment
    • Reductions in energy consumption

    Danwood’s Audit and Assessment team will be visiting campus in the next few weeks to gather information on the current service.  IT Services will be working closely with Danwood’s Project and Account Management team to redesign and implement a new MFD fleet to suit the needs of staff and students.
