“The savings from Print Manager were immediate, around £11,000 annually and we have reduced the number of printers in the company by 70%. Removing boxes of stationery has enabled us to convert space into a meeting room” Paul Mitchell, IT Manager

Challenge: printing costs, print quality and reliability, equipment costs, equipment maintenance, forms stock control, storage, paper flow

Davroc is a growing, family-run supplier of products to bathroom retailers. Forward-thinking, the company focusses on quality classic design and manufacturing. Davroc sources its products from across Europe from the finest quality suppliers. As an employer, the company promotes a very strong and traditional people-centric culture. 

Prior to implementing Print Manager, Davroc had 20+ dot matrix printers, a high capacity laser printer and numerous fax machines. The dot matrix printers were costly to run, time consuming to un-jam and periodically needed replacement. Furthermore, they used task-specific, pre-printed forms, each of which needed to be designed, printed, stored and replenished. Pre-printed forms are not visually modern or professional and if changes are required the whole cycle has to start all over again – often with inevitable wastage.
