With their acquisition of SMS Technologies in late 2017, the ASG Group had two distinct print infrastructure and systems environments requiring integration under two separate vendor contracts. During its discovery process, CPC identified 25% underutilisation of print devices, a substantial amount of ‘waste printing’ and a lack of secure print technology. Additionally, the client requested a more dynamic and flexible print environment whereby staff travelling and operating across the nation could easily and securely print regardless of the branch location.
