About The Client

The Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Otsego (DCMO BOCES) Board of Cooperative Educational Services is a regional educational agency providing services in partnership with 16 local school districts in Norwich, New York. In 1948, the New York State legislature created Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) to provide shared educational programs and services to school districts within the state.

Today, there are 37 BOCES schools that are partnering with nearly all the state’s school districts to help meet students' evolving educational needs through cost-effective and relevant programs and services.

The Challenge

Modernise and Streamline Printing Processes While Optimising Costs

DCMO BOCES faced challenges in meeting the demands of the modern printing landscape. They needed a solution that could streamline their processes, reduce costs, and provide opportunities for expanding their offerings while remaining competitive. They also recognised that traditional printing methods were limiting their ability to meet these challenges effectively.

The Solution

Adding Unmatched Capabilities and Reliability

To address these challenges, DCMO BOCES adopted the Xerox® Baltoro® HF Inkjet Press. According to Frank Oliver (Supervisor Print, Public Info, Courier Services), “This cutting-edge printing solution provided unmatched speed, reliability, and the capability to deliver quality colour prints at a lower cost. By integrating the Baltoro Inkjet Press into our operation, we aimed to improve our time-to-market and reduce expenses”.

The Results

Major Benefits for Speed, Quality and Cost Savings

Space Efficiency: The compact footprint of the Baltoro Inkjet Press was a crucial factor for DCMO BOCES, as they had limited space available in their facility. The press’s efficient design allowed it to seamlessly integrate into their existing setup.

Reliability and Uptime: With limited redundancy capabilities, DCMO BOCES needed a printing solution that offered high uptime and reliability. The Baltoro Inkjet Press’s robust performance and dependable print heads ensured consistent output, crucial for meeting tight educational deadlines.

Enhanced Time-to-Market: They experienced a significant improvement in their time-to-market due to the high-speed capabilities of the Baltoro. With the ability to produce 300 images per minute, the press allowed them to fulfill hundreds of individual job requests per day ranging from dozens of prints to hundreds.

Cost Savings: The transition from traditional black-and-white printing to cut-sheet inkjet colour printing on the Xerox Baltoro Inkjet Press resulted in substantial cost savings for them. This allowed them to produce colour prints on a wider range of substrates, reducing production costs.
