11/01/2010

Joint project with mc-Technik Jundel GmbH brings savings of 18 percent to utility provider.

SUMMARY

OKI Printing Solutions, a specialist in professional printing solutions and output management, adds another successful project to its Print Optimizer solution. Together with OKI’s partner mc-Technik Jundel GmbH, they have succeeded in reducing the operating costs for the regional utility company, Stadtwerke Eckernförde GmbH, by 18 percent. Over and above   the savings, the utility company also benefits from a more sustainable, modernised environment, improved workflow and an automated usage of materials. From the first presentation of the analysis through to system launch, the project, which took three months, was brought to a successful conclusion.

THE CHALLENGE

The existing print infrastructure at Stadtwerke Eckernförde consisted of 36 printer products, of which there were a total of 28 different models. OKI Printing Solutions and mc-Technik performed a comprehensive on-site Print Optimizer analysis of Stadtwerke Eckernförde 80 employees’ printers, scanners, copiers and fax machines.

THE SOLUTION

After the analysis, 24 OKI devices, consisting of just 5 models, were immediately implemented. OKI’s partner’s long-standing cooperation with the regional utilities company, and the excellent print quality of OKI’s LED-based technology was crucial in winning the contract. The contract period of 60 months was given a print volume of 23,000 A4 mono pages and 5,200 A4 colour pages. All equipment was bought by OKI Printing Solutions and compensation provided to the customer.

THE RESULTS

“The analysis OKI Printing Solutions and mc-Technik Jundel GmbH carried out has given us a clearpicture of our output requirements, procedures, and total costs. The practical tailored solutionimplemented has fully convinced us both economically and in terms of improving existing workprocesses” Peter Frahm, General Manager, Stadtwerke Eckernförde GmbH

“Stadtwerke Eckernförde’s case strongly illustrates the added value offered by our outputmanagement approach to medium sized companies, whatever their size or industry”, says Ronald Försterling, Sales Manager at OKI Printing Solutions. “Once again our analysis highlights how muchpotential remains untapped in an inconsistent output infrastructure. We can save companies moneyand reduce their efforts: An optimized printer fleet eliminates the procurement and storage ofsupplies and service management is significantly simplified.

Thomas Jundel, Managing Director of mc-Technik Jundel GmbH, is also pleased with the outcome of the project: "The software adaptation and adjustment to the new, multifunction OKI devices functioned smoothlyand without any restrictions."
