Large Enterprise Construction Company Reduces Printer Install and Set up Time from Hours to Seconds

Posted by Andrew Miller on January 5th, 2016

PrinterLogic allowed this large-enterprise construction company to hit those targets with just one powerful print management solution. By the company’s own assessment, it succeeded in reducing each of the following by a staggering 70%:

  • Time spent on print management
  • Print-related calls to the service desk
  • Printer downtime

“The time spent setting up and installing printers at a local level was reduced to seconds instead of hours,” said a company representative. That’s what keeps contributing to such phenomenal ROI.

How much of any construction company is built on paper? The contracts, the invoices, the schedules, the blueprints—so much essential business depends on a material renowned for its thinness than its space-age composition or load-bearing ratio.

That’s why construction companies take their print environments so seriously, and an increasing number of them are growing dissatisfied with the frustrations and limitations of traditional print management solutions. The independent research firm TechValidate set out to speak with PrinterLogic customers in this field to determine how our forward-thinking print management solution was working for them. One TechValidate case study of a large-enterprise construction company (TVID: D85-5A7-005 ) shows just how effective PrinterLogic has been.

This large-enterprise construction company had a suitably large print environment to match: a total of 1,000 to 2,500 networked printers across more than 100 physical locations. By installing PrinterLogic enterprise-wide, the company wanted to achieve many of the goals we frequently hear from prospective customers, namely:

  • Implementing a simple, efficient and centralized method of managing drivers and printers
  • Simplifying routine printer installation for end-users
  • Providing high availability for enterprise print services by reducing points of failure
  • Improving visibility into the status of physical printers

PrinterLogic allowed this large-enterprise construction company to hit those targets with just one powerful print management solution. By the company’s own assessment, it succeeded in reducing each of the following by a staggering 70%:

  • Time spent on print management
  • Print-related calls to the service desk
  • Printer downtime

The company recouped the entirety of its investment in PrinterLogic within six months. But the return on investment (ROI) didn’t end there. The total ROI has already amounted to more than 400%—a percentage that’s still climbing with every end user who installs his or her own printer without calling the service desk, or every hour that’s saved through PrinterLogic’s effortless print management.

“The time spent setting up and installing printers at a local level was reduced to seconds instead of hours,” said a company representative. That’s what keeps contributing to such phenomenal ROI.

What’s even more astounding is that there were no expensive and problematic print servers to eliminate. This company had a direct IP print environment before implementing PrinterLogic. And yet the improvements the company experienced with PrinterLogic were so great that it still rated our solutions as “amazing” in speed of deployment and “excellent” in three separate areas: printer driver management, ease of deployment, and ease of use.

Construction companies might be built on paper, but the really successful ones use PrinterLogic as their foundation.
