• Midshire boosts fitness chain’s print capabilities

        • Midshire has modernised the print capabilities of existing customer, Life Leisure, with the latest innovative solutions.Taking place over one weekend in April 2018, the registered charity has seen its twelve Stockport leisure centres fitted with Sharp multifunction printers and PaperCut print monitoring software.

          With the 15 original machines provided by Midshire 7 years ago coming to the end of their lease, IT Sales Manager Stuart Carruthers carried out a free print audit. He concluded that both overhead and running costs could be condensed by reducing the fleet to 13 brand new, eco-friendly Sharp devices. 

          All machines have been installed with secure, GDPR compliant PaperCut software, meaning staff can rest assured in the knowledge that only they can print the documents they send to the print queue; no unauthorised personnel can access confidential documents.

          Adelle Izzard, Systems Manager at Life Leisure said, “in the entire 7 years that we’ve known Stuart and worked with Midshire there has never been any disappointment in the service received.

          “When Stuart told me Midshire wanted to save us even more money by actually reducing the number of printers we had with more efficient ones I was obviously thrilled, their engineers will proactively maintain the machines too, so we’re never unable to print!”

          Established in 2002 as the Stockport Sports Trust, over 500 Life Leisure employees provide 350 weekly studio classes, gymnasiums, and swimming pools to thousands of people across the Stockport area. Life Leisure has 12 fitness centres in the Borough of Stockport, including sites at Avondale, Grand Central, Hazel Grove, Houldsworth Village, and Stockport Sports Village.

          Stuart Carruthers, IT Sales Manager added, “this installation was unique due to the centres demanding 7-day schedule. We had to get each site up and running in a short window of time, so we preconfigured all of the machines beforehand so that the devices simply needed to be plugged in, with no need for on-site networking.” 

          When talking about the new devices, Stuart added, “they’re quicker and much more affordable, and with the addition of PaperCut, we’ve forecast a further 30% saving on their annual print spend.”
