“As HPD grew from IndyCar® engine development to sports cars and commercial operations, the composition of our organization changed. Our associates kept requesting printers until we had about 40 workgroup and desktop devices from different vendors. Each person had a printer within a two-foot radius. Our IS group had 40 print queues to manage and a variety of toner and supplies. No one was controlling printing or tracking usage.”
“We integrated the Xerox® ColorQube® 9300 series and most recently, the Xerox® 7800 series multifunction devices into our network. All the printers have secure access card readers to protect sensitive documents and they’re environmentally friendly. I have one print queue now and every user action is traceable. We’re also using Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology with SharePoint for greater collaboration.
- Reduced fleet of over 40 multi-vendor desktop and workgroup printers to a much smaller set of strategically located Xerox® multifunction devices
- Improved user-to-device ratio from 3:1 to 33:1
- Gained greater flexibility and security through the ability to release prints from any device and the integration of Honda’s global directory, which allows printer use by any Honda employee
