Henry Ford College Upgrades Entire Print Fleet

What would your business or institution do with an extra $110k annually? That was the question Henry Ford College had the privilege of answering following a complete upgrade of its aging fleet of printers. Read on to discover how Applied Innovation implemented a seamless transition to a new print fleet for this eastern Michigan college that serves 14,000 students across two campuses.

High Expectations

Henry Ford College (HFC) knew its campus printers needed an upgrade, and they had high expectations for a new service provider. They were looking for a partner who would work alongside their existing equipment provider and meet the goals they set for this significant transition.

As the school began to search for a new provider, machine quality and price were their top considerations, but they also prioritized finding excellent service, response times, and an overall customer-centric approach. HFC wanted this new partner to recommend the best machines for each location, remove and replace existing equipment, and train college faculty and staff on the use of the new printers.

A Seamless Transition

A busy institution like HFC couldn’t afford to experience significant downtimes in transitioning to a new printer fleet. Within two weeks, Applied Innovation successfully replaced and upgraded 50+ pieces of equipment, including multifunction printers, desktop printers, and production machines. Applied Innovation’s print experts conducted training sessions with each college department. Applied also worked with HFC’s IT department to ensure seamless integration of the new printers with the college’s existing technology infrastructure.

Impressive Savings and Service

By choosing to partner with Applied, HFC experienced many benefits in transitioning to a new fleet of printers. The most significant benefit was an annual savings of over $110k in printer maintenance and supplies. HFC faculty and staff have also benefited from the increased printer uptime due to the rapid response time of Applied’s service technicians. Additionally, with the new printers, Applied implemented its Print Management Services to provide increased security for the college’s network and documents and secure access to each device.

Henry Ford College has enjoyed numerous benefits from its partnership with Applied Innovation. A seamless transition to a new fleet of printers, significant annual cost savings, dependable printer service, and increased printer security have positively impacted all levels of the college community.
