Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Within this newly-merged Trust, Aintree University Hospital (AUH) was looking to consolidate and streamline its existing print fleet, control costs and comply with the ‘Greener NHS’ Programme. AUH used Lexmark products to help simplify a fleet consisting of over 1,300 devices from a range of different vendors.
After a comprehensive and thorough audit of the current printing process across the AUH, which included an assessment of future requirements, a future proof solution was adopted that would help AUH to reduce paper output, printing costs and cartridge use whilst adopting a paper-lite approach to printing and improving security. The proposal included a flexible smart MPS platform consisting of an optimised mix of A4/A3, colour, black & white and multifunctional devices, which aimed to promote the use of mono printing where feasible in order to reduce costs
