Helping to Cut Printing Costs at the IPPN Education Expo

Top of the class at the IPPN Education Expo

More than 1200 primary school principals attended the IPPN Education Expo in Citiwest this year. The expo is the largest education exhibition in Ireland with attendance by over 1/3 of all primary principals.

Cantec was delighted to exhibit at this high quality event. After all over 350 of our customers are primary schools! The expo offers us an excellent chance to meet and engage with our customers. Listening to and understanding their needs helps us to further improve our service.

Learning on the job

The expo gave our sales team the opportunity to inform and update our customers about changes that will directly impact them and improvements in our service such as FMAudit that will be rolled out to everyone by year end.

We also reminded them of the upcoming deadline for GDPR and how Cantec can help them meet the challenges of these new regulations.


Reduce Reuse Recycle

As Kermit the Frog might say “It’s not easy being green” but with Cantec on your team, it’s just that bit easier.

One of the reoccurring themes of the day was the need by all Principals to reduce their costs –both in the running of their machine and its print output. And once again, Cantec was first to raise their hand with a solution.

Our managed print solution can save up to 30% on everyday printing costs. The school can track the quantity of printing per month and can budget for that spend. Options such as duplex printing and limited colour production are encouraged.

At the IPPN Education Expo, Neil and Dave showed customers where significant savings can be made and advised on how to improve efficiencies in printing.

Our Star Performer at the IPPN Education Expo.

Our stand displayed one of the more popular models for the modern school – the IrC3520i

This second generation multifunction printer punches well above it’s weight being small in size but big in output. It will print, copy, scan, send and store – all controlled from an intuitive user interface. Designed to reduce the total cost of prints, the Canon IRC3520i offers secure print and Uniflow to enhance security.

The machine makes the most of the advances in technology with FMAudit being preinstalled. This remote management tool sends a message automatically once the toner runs low. The replenishment toner is supplied to you in advance of it being required meaning that you will never run out of toner.
