The organisation
Nottingham City Transport (NCT) is the biggest bus operator in Notting-ham, with 340 buses providing a com-prehensive network of services across the city, seven days a week. We carry some of the most satisfied bus users in the country, with a 97% overall satisfaction rating in the inde-pendent Transport Focus Satisfaction Survey (2016). Through continued investment in modern, fully accessible buses and increasing frequencies on core routes throughout the City, we have been able to attract more people on to our buses each year since 2001, bucking a national trend of bus passenger decline.

The challenge
Nottingham City Transport had been aware for some time that there were opportunities to save money on their office printing concerning print charg-es, technology and related policies. Their office devices were due, and they were acutely aware of security improvements that had become avail-able with the newer technology. The company also wanted some visibility

and reporting on their office printing regarding individual and departmental usage as well as some automation and control – none of this was available historically.

The Solution
Advanced UK recommended and in-stalled a Print Management software solution with new ConnectKey™ multifunctional printers that print, scan, copy and integrate to cloud-based services. The whole solution was set up and configured in line with Nottingham City Transport’s require-ments providing the most modern easy-to-use features. Everything was designed so that users could collect their print jobs from ei-ther device by using their existing se-curity swipe cards – the swipe cards validated their identity effectively log-ging them onto the devices, recording the activity and printing the job for the user. The software was set up and config-ured in line with Nottingham City Transport’s network requirements and liaising with their IT and Technical network specialists.

Results
Mario Mastrangelo, IT Systems Ad-ministrator at Nottingham City Transport had this to say: “Advanced UK guided us through this process with the introduction of the Print Management software, both installing and supporting it moving forward. It has already been useful, and staff have adapted quickly to the swipe card entry for copying and collecting print jobs. It had reduced our paper usage – before print jobs were left on the exit tray and sometimes never collected. Being a data-sensitive busi-ness, we needed to ensure that secu-rity would be a priority when it came to implementation and roll-out of the software. We were able to achieve all of this and more. Our investment in Print Management Solution paid for itself within the first twelve months and has been robust and reliable from day one. We would recommend Advanced UK and SafeCom Print Management Solution to any potential customer who is thinking about controlling print costs in their business”.
