Newport City Council Cuts Down In Ink Cartridges Expenditure
Newport City Council (NCC) has announced that, thanks to a series of measures, it has managed to cut its ink cartridges and print-related costs by 25 per cent, equivalent to a hefty £90,000.
The printer ink savings comes as part of a wider IT infrastructure overhaul that the NCC has undergone with around 3,000 NCC staff now able to print and collect documents, scan to email or even network to any device across the council's 50 sites.
Mark Neilson, the NCC's head of customer and information services, is quoted by Sourcing Focus as saying: "NCC employees can now print from any supported location. A more flexible working environment is just what we need for our increasingly agile workforce.
"We have significantly reduced the administration costs of processing invoices and ordering ink consumables for our printers."
The NCC is also said to be launching a mobile print solution with Xerox with a view to a wider roll out.
