Canon Wins 5's Office Support Deal

A world leader in imaging solutions, Canon, has announced a contract to supply Channel 5 Broadcasting, with print and imaging equipment for the UK broadcaster’s newly refurbished central London Office.
The five-storey building, which houses the majority of the organisations 290-strong workforce, is now fitted with Canon multifunctional printers (MFPs) to help manage print and document management more effectively.
Canon devices serve all departments across the business so will be printing anything from production schedules, scripts, financial reports, to creative ideas and marketing materials.
Environment and energy savings were a key consideration for Channel 5 Broadcasting when making decisions about the office refurbishment. Consolidating the printer fleet to just two per floor, instead of multiple desktop devices, and providing access cards for staff to release printing at the device were therefore suggested as simple ways to control printing and cut waste within the organisation.
The latest image Runner Advance devices are said to also offer the industry's highest levels of energy efficiency with an overall reduction in carbon emissions of up to 50%.
In addition, the installation of uniFLOW Output Manager software gives Channel 5's IT department complete visibility over who is printing what so that ongoing reviews and processes improvements can be implemented as required. uniFLOW provides detailed reporting, which ensures that Five can make the most effective use of its print fleet by minimising costs and strategically placing devices in areas where they are most needed.
The other key factor in Channel 5's decision to work with Canon was the competitive pricing and the financial flexibility offered through a leasing agreement.
Hanan George, Assistant Facilities Manager, at Channel 5 Broadcasting, said: "Despite the fact that our media is mostly broadcast, we still rely heavily on print across the organisation. Initially we worked with Canon to do a print audit, which allowed us to see where and how savings could be made and processes improved.
"Canon's solution is the perfect fit for our business as it allows us to reduce the number of devices, which saves space and reduces the overall volume of print output. The cost and environmental benefits that this brings to us are really important."
The installation at Channel 5 Broadcasting is complete and the organisation expects to save approximately £125,000 in servicing across the 60-month contract.
