Printing more & still saving £1,000’s


With a need to save money, due to dwindling school budgets, Christ the King RC Primary School in Burnley, faced a real printing dilemma.

Lisa Clegg, Bursar said. “Having a printer in each classroom and allowing the children and teacher to print out everything they need is a very expensive exercise, and after weighing up the various options, we were looking at an annual classroom printing bill of over £5,000, which for us, is way too much”.

Christ the King, either needed to find a more cost effective solution or they would have to stop the children and teachers from printing everything they needed, and strictly regulate what could or couldn’t be printed throughout the school.

But after discussions with a number of other local schools and meeting Bernadette from MY Total Office Solutions (which incorporates Cartridge World). Lisa discovered the Infinity printing solution.

“At first I couldn’t believe what the package provided, a fully maintained business rated multifunction inkjet printer with unlimited ink cartridges for just £19.99 plus vat a month” Lisa exclaimed “Wow, this sounded like utopia and seemed to be exactly what we needed. The teachers and children will be able to print everything they need and the school will have a low fixed monthly charge that helps spread the annual budget”.

Further discussions with Bernadette commenced and as Christ the King decided to commit to a longer 36 month agreement (the standard agreement is 12 months), Bernadette gave them six months absolutely free.

Lisa was amazed and said. “Bernadette is saving us close to £3,000 a year, which is a 50% saving against what we had originally expected. We also have the latest technology, with a wireless multifunction business inkjet printer in every classroom, complete with as many ink cartridges as we need, which are delivered to us fast and free whenever we order them”.

“Another extra benefit, is that we never have to buy a printer again, as they are all fully maintained as part of the contract. The whole team at MY Total Office Solutions look after us fantastically well and the service has been so good, we are now buying all our stationery, other office supplies and office furniture from them”.

Lisa concluded “Their pricing model is really transparent and competitive. I’ve found in the past that other organisations start off keen and then put their prices up over time without you realising it and they don’t tell you. But, I’m very pleased to report, this does not happen with MY Total Office Solutions, they have a very honest and open way of transacting business and we highly recommend their products and service”.
