With an ever increasing amount of data, it is important for companies to adhere to the law regarding data protection. The risk of identity theft is on the rise, so it is imperative that companies adequately destroy sensitive data. Lyreco offers a shredding service that allows you to order bespoke shredding bags which hold up to 17kg of paper, and once full are collected and destroyed.
Midshire currently supplies PaperCut MF & PaperCut NG to various branches of Lyreco in the UK and Ireland. They are using the product with fast release terminals so end users print their work to a global print queue and then collect it at the nearest printer. Lyreco UK decided upon PaperCut as they were interested in tracking the print volume from the users and to cut down on wasted print and also enhance security.
Midshire Software Specialist, Phil Kelly comments,
“Starting a business relationship with one of the world’s largest stationery suppliers, based in over 44 countries worldwide and help them get a handle on their printing volume gives Midshire Business Systems a fantastic opportunity to show how our consultative approach can pay dividends.”
Dave Cowley, Lyreco IS Technician said:
“Phil and the Midshire’s team have helped Lyreco to roll out Papercut MF to our entire UK base, helping us to go the extra mile at going green. The support provided was great and filled me with great confidence whilst rolling out the system. They provided trial software and hardware, so we could test which provision best suited us. Since Midshire’s supported us in the installation, Lyreco has prevented the consummation of 6 trees and made printing more secure and confidential.”
Midshire supplies the full office solution. We have an extensive range of photocopiers and printers, as well as providing print management solutions such as Papercut. Our dedicated IT consultancy team can also offer services to help to keep business systems up and running.
