OKI win Managed Print Services Contract into World's Largest Online Bike Store in Ireland

TOKYO, March 14, 2012 -- OKI Data Corporation, an OKI Group company specializing in the printer business, announces that OKI Systems Ireland has won a significant Managed Print Services contract with the world's largest online bike store, Chain Reaction Cycles (CRC). Under the agreement, OKI will analyze CRC's overall printing operations and provide solutions for the company's managed print services. By introducing a print control system and optimizing printer placement, the two companies expect these measures to boost security and cut current annual total print costs by some 28%.

CRC has an intensive requirement for printing solutions in general office, marketing, and dispatch. Of these, the latter area typically supports the highest print volumes, carrying out around four million prints a year in total and at peak times having the ability to dispatch up to 24 orders per minute. CRC's print fleet had grown organically on an ‘as needed’ basis with multiple brands, support contracts and different types of toner. The approach was expensive, inefficient and was failing to support enhanced business productivity.
