One of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of seeds and crop protection solutions, Nufarm is the dependable global partner behind thousands of agricultural success stories. They work in partnership with agronomists, industry stakeholders and farmers to increase their crop yields and productivity.
While printing is not their core business, it remains a critical utility to their vast operational environment. So Nufarm engaged Campbell and Partners in November 2017 to evaluate existing contractual arrangements for their head office in Melbourne. The success of CPC’s ‘white glove’ approach in this initial engagement was broadened to include their largest international hubs and subsequently extended to the management of their global print-related structure across 34 countries.
Nufarm sought a reduction in involvement of its internal IT and administration resources for management of their global print environment with a simultaneous increase in efficiency, consistency and security.

Smarter solutions get results
By conducting an analysis of existing vendor agreements, evaluating current fleet functionality and organisational requirements and on-site audits, CPC identified the need for consolidation with a vendor who could effectively support Nufarm globally. Utilising its global vendor partnerships and agreements, CPC designed a complete print solution employing Ricoh hardware with the Streamline ‘follow you’ print and scan management software platform.
Not only did Nufarm’s global CIO endorse the ‘printer refresh’ project, but enthusiastic support from their internal procurement and IT staff, helped the solution be deployed location by location commencing 2018.
With many core business projects across the globe, individual branches now delegate transition management to the new solution to CPC’s experienced partnership managers.
