Q & A
It this service right for me?
If you print just 50 pages a day or more this service is right for you. Thats just 2 reams of paper a month!
The minimum committment is just 20 colour prints & 30 mono prints per day.
So let me get this right, you will give me a printer free and print allowance all for cheaper then i currently pay for the printer in my office?
Yep, exactly that. I know it sound a it bonkers but we are working in partnership with Lexmark who have given us this crazy offer.
Upon sign up you will receive an advanced Lexmark device which at the end of the plan term is yours to keep…Simple!
You can extend the plan for further years to continue saving on your print up to a maximum of 5 years at which point we will replace your printer free of charge so you never have to worry about an old ageing print device again.
What happens at the end of my term?
At the end of your agreed plan term you can either simply extend the plan on a 12 monthly basis or retain the device (which is yours to keep) on a pay as you go service. Nothing else will be due to pay.
On the pay as you go service you would purchase toners, consumables and any service call outs required.
You say these devices are cheaper to run, how do I work that out for my own piece of mind?
If you want to work out the running cost of your device probably the simplest way is to look at the big online mass toner supply companies. Many of these suppliers have the running cost for devices displayed on their sites.
Two that come to mind are:
Five simple steps to complete.
1. Search for current your printer.
2. View the running costs. (If not displayed then divide the price of each of the consumables and toners by the yield displayed, then add all together. That is your running cost per page. Also remember that won’t include the purchase price of the original printer, any service calls or any parts required either.)
3. Feel shocked as you didn’t realise it cost that much to run
4. Place an order for a new PaaS print device.
5. Tell the boss about your good work 🙂
I used to print loads but circumstances have changed what can I do?
If your print usage changes, with 60 days notice you can adjust the level to suit your requirements. This can be adjusted up or down. It’s your choice.
It extreme circumstances do talk to us as there maybe other options we can provide, after all we want you to be happy with the services we provide.
If I am looking to keep the device for many years what happens?
We will continue to support and service your device for up to 5 years at which point we will simply replace with a brand new printer. This way you need never have to worry about ageing failing print devices again.
What happens if my print volume is too big for plans?
You simply pay the plan amount and any overage at the rate for your plan. There are no upper limits on printing or copying.
If I have a problem with my printer what happens?
Report any issues direct to us and we shall dispatch an engineer the next business day to fix your device. Any parts, drums, fusers required are covered under the plan. If in the very rare instance your device is beyond repair for whatever reason we shall replace free of charge with a new device.
Why should I increase plan?
If you are constantly going over your plan it may be more cost effective to move up to the next level offering better value for money. The starter plan has higher additional charges per page when you go over the allowance. The higher the plan the cheaper the additional print charge per page.
Whats does "Solutions Ready" mean?
“Solutions Ready” devices mean that the devices (Printer & MFD) can have software loaded on to enable other functions and features.
These may include software’s like Papercut (Leading Print management and Follow Me print solution), Advanced workflow scanning, OCR output, Scan to Sharepoint, Google Drive, Google Cloud print and many more. Speak to us for further details.
How do you collect machine data (Meters, consumable levels)?
One of the requirement of the plan is that you install our remote device diagnostics software, this industry standard audit software allows the remote monitoring of the device to relay usage and supplies data. we use this information to invoice any over plan usage and for automated supplies delivery for your device.
I would like to have a spare set of toner, can I?
With our industry standard remote device monitoring software stock piling toners and supplies are a thing of the past. Our software will notify us of when your device is requiring toner. This generates a request on our service management systems which automates the toner delivery next day. Probably the only time you will know a toner is soon required for your device is when you are notified of a parcel at your goods in.
Toner is saying low, should I replace toner now?
No, replace the toner on the device when it has depleted fully. Print devices generally notify users in plenty of time that the toner is low so that they would have time to find the parts number, find the supplier they use, manually order the supplies and then wait for it to turn up.
This old process is a thing of the past. With our live monitoring of your device we take that pain all away.
I am a customer already can I trade in my old printer for new?
Yes, as a current customer we offer this exclusive promotion of collecting your old (non PaaS) device and installing your new printer or MFD.
We shall recycle your old device in accordance with WEEE regulations.
Is scanning included free of charge?
Scanning is free on the Scan Pro plan on the Multifunctional Device. Due to these plans being based on print usage we have to charge for scanning to cover the part usage in the document feeders which do wear over time. Scanning on the starter plan is 1p per scan and 0.5p per scan on the Office plan. With the Scan Pro plan all scanning is included.
