When investigating the market for a new black and white printer, there were two things on Copy Captain manager Grant Nicol’s mind: speed and print quality. According to Nicol, the company had to put its needs before vendor loyalty in deciding to go with the iR 105.
“We’ve been in the printing business for many years, and our printing devices have mainly been with another vendor. Hence, when seeking a new solution for our black and white printing needs, our natural option was to remain with this vendor. However, when we assessed the printing devices on offer, the vendor did not have the solution we required,” says Nicol.
“We also looked at some other brands and what it really came down to was things like price, quality and service and this is why we chose the iR 105.”
Another factor was the ability to modify the machine to suit the company’s needs. The printer was modified with a paper drill to aid its production of educational documents.
The productivity of the machine was also very attractive for Nicol. The printing speed of 105ppm, coupled with a maximum paper capacity of 7650 sheets, printing work at a maximum resolution of 2400x600dpi sealed the deal.
While we don’t maintain an exact record of each machine in our business, the iR 105 has measurably improved the timing of our jobs not only just in printing time, but also in the added features of stapling, folding and collating,” explains Nicol.
“We can produce up to half a million prints per month with the iR 105 and, on average, do around 200,000 to 300,000 per moth. Productivity results across our organisation have improved due to the installation of the iR 105.”
