Challenge

Codemasters, an award-winning video game developer, wanted to replace its fleet of 50 different printer types with one model that would lower costs without compromising on print quality.

“We had no print strategy in place and would simply buy printers as and when we needed them. The problem was in managing toner supplies and managing faults across 10 -12 different printer types, it was taking up time and resource so we decided to address the matter”

Solution                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Following a comprehensive audit, a migration plan was designed that would get the most out of the existing legacy printers, while phasing them out over the course of 18 months.

“We didn’t want to simply throw out the existing fleet so we are replacing each unit as it becomes obsolete. In some cases, this happens when an old printer needs new toner because, believe it or not, it is more cost-effective to buy a new Officejet Pro, than replace colour cartridges for the same model”.

Outcome

Each HP Officejet Pro X is saving up to 42 per cent on printing costs compared to the most commonly used legacy printer at Codemasters. The new printers use less ink and energy, making them more environmentally friendly, while the smaller cartridges make storage easy. They are more reliable, with only one fault reported in the first six months and they deliver more functionality to the desktop, making employees more productive.

“We’re saving 42% on our Officejet Pro X as they print without compromising on quality. They’re also twice as fast and use half the energy so they score highly across the board”. Senior IT Administrator, Codemasters
