Challenges

As part of their commitment to corporate social responsibility, Bonallack & Bishop are continually exploring ways to reduce their environmental footprint, including their paper usage and printing practices.

For their print needs they identified four key challenges for us to assess to move to more sustainable printing.

  • High Volume Printing: The firm deals with extensive documentation, leading to high volumes of printing.
  • Confidentiality Concerns: Legal documents often contain sensitive information, requiring secure handling and disposal processes.
  • Cost Considerations: Any changes to printing practices must be economically viable for the firm.
  • Standardise their fleet: The present fleet encompassed several different models of printers leading to day-to-day inefficiencies and extra training requirements.

How we helped

We started with an in-depth print audit throughout Bonallack & Bishop’s business.

Our print audits are a comprehensive assessment of an organisation’s printing environment, aimed at analysing printing habits, costs, and efficiency. It involves gathering data on print volumes, device usage, energy efficiency, and expenses. We also engaged with the firm’s staff to understand their printing needs and requirements.

The audit identifies opportunities for optimisation, such as reducing waste, improving security, and streamlining workflows. Ultimately these audits help businesses make informed decisions to enhance productivity and reduce printing expenses and environmental impact.

Following our audit for Bonallack & Bishop, and in line with their cost and environmental targets, we proposed a fleet of Agilico Zero refurbished Canon MFDs using PaperCut print management software.

Papercut

PaperCut software is ideal for legal firms as it effectively addresses their unique needs. It manages and reduces printing costs through detailed tracking, reporting, and quota management, ensuring efficient use of resources.

Security is paramount in legal environments. PaperCut enhances document security with secure print release and user authentication, reducing the risk of unauthorised access. Compliance with regulations is supported by detailed logs of all printing activities and document watermarking, which are essential for audits and regulatory requirements.

Accurate billing is simplified with client and matter tracking, allowing firms to allocate printing costs to specific clients or cases. This ensures precise billing and integrates seamlessly with existing billing systems.

PaperCut also promotes environmental sustainability by reducing paper waste through duplex printing and print job previews. It encourages eco-friendly practices, contributing to a smaller environmental footprint.

The software is user-friendly and integrates well with existing IT infrastructure, while being fully compatible with the chosen Agilico Zero MFDs. Its intuitive interface ensures easy adoption by both administrators and end-users.

Policy Development and Employee Engagement

Establishing clear policies on sustainable print practices, such as promoting double-sided printing and digital alternatives, was crucial. Regular monitoring of printing metrics and soliciting feedback from employees ensured alignment with sustainability goals.
