Partnership Creates Print Process Improvements Leading to Substantial Capital Savings on All Student and Faculty Print Materials for Academic and Athletic Events
Toshiba’s award-winning e‑STUDIO™ multifunction printers (MFPs) will produce a vast range of educational materials for Niagara University Purple Eagle students and staff. These materials include syllabi, tests and class booklets as well as large, eye-catching color materials to enhance campus-wide communications such as vibrant posters, wall clings, outdoor banners and pop-up signage spotlighting academic and athletic events on campus and off.
“We are impressed with Toshiba’s out-of-the-box thinking,” says Niagara University Chief Financial and Innovation Officer Bob Morreale. “This wasn’t just about replacing copiers. By asking detailed questions regarding our previous print usage and day-to-day requirements, Toshiba provided a modern, customized print solution that meets student and faculty needs while providing significant, annual hard-cost savings to Niagara University.”
Students and staff may access among the 100 Toshiba MFPs located across the private Catholic university to fulfill their print projects in an efficient, secure and sustainable manner, 24/7/365. Personalized RFID (radio frequency identification) identification badges facilitate such outcomes since only the rightful owner receives their prints. This ensures others may not mistakenly print, take or view the documents. This technology further lessens waste by eliminating abandoned prints. With this customized solution, Niagara University and Toshiba leaders are projecting as much as a 35 percent annual savings in both print costs and paper usage for the University.
“Helping Niagara University reach its budget goals while implementing advanced print technology, illustrates our mantra of delivering world-class service,” says Toshiba Business Solutions President Steven Sauer. “Team Toshiba looks forward to continuing our close collaboration with the Purple Eagle community to continually deliver the elite-level materials they require to perform at their best.”
Under the long-term partnership, which was brokered by Van Wagner, the multimedia rights holder for the Purple Eagles, Toshiba’s industry-recognized e-STUDIO MFPs will successfully tackle Niagara University’s myriad of document management applications for many years.
“The core value of our campus-wide division is to build strong relationships between technology providers and universities that further the growth and prosperity of the school,” said Van Wagner Executive Vice President of Campus-Wide Mark Devine. “Toshiba’s selection to deliver technology that enhances consistency and productivity for Niagara University students and faculty campus-wide is the definition of such a value-added partnership.”
Beyond helping Niagara University students and faculty efficiently, securely and sustainably print important documents, Toshiba is collaborating with Niagara University’s leadership on a campus-wide assessment to best augment and update the University’s current digital signage.
