When it’s your job to procure hundreds of multi‑function devices and copiers for offices and schools, the pressure is on for ruthless efficiency…

This was the task facing three councils – East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire – in procuring devices for hundreds of offices and schools back in 2005, when the three put this enormous task out to tender.

The rigorous tender process was won at the end of that year by Agilico, ahead of 11 other companies. The contract has been retained without a break since, through further scheduled tender processes, and Agilico successfully secured it again in 2017 for up to four years.

Now enlarged to more than 1,400 multi‑function devices, it Agilico’s tenure to an unprecedented 15 years, which is testimony to the group’s after‑sales service and the dedication of its Pocklington team.

The North East Lincolnshire print fleet already benefits from printer management software to reduce waste and there is a review in progress for the potential implementation of PaperCut software across the East Riding Council print fleet to enable control of colour printing, reduce waste, and provide follow-me print technology, allowing users to send documents from one location and collect them from devices in another.

Several hundred individual schools and offices which are equipped with cutting-edge multifunction devices which allow us to operate in the most efficient, cost-effective way possible.

The result

Many schools in the region are already benefiting from PaperCut installations and are enjoying cost and waste reduction as a result. The principal procurement officer for East Riding Council, said: “This contract covers several hundred individual schools and offices which are equipped with cutting-edge multifunction devices which allow us to operate in the most efficient, cost-effective way possible.

“The contract is managed centrally and offers a significant price advantage as well as contractual security to all customers. Agilico has delivered innovative systems backed by a comprehensive service offering. The latest software allows us to minimise waste and their customer service is outstanding.”

The solutions we have provided for these three authorities are a great example of how best to utilise cutting-edge efficiency across hundreds of sites to minimise waste and maximise value for money. All organisations, large and small, can benefit from the latest technology in ensuring they are as lean and green as possible, as these authorities have.
