Allied Office Machines brings 26% cost savings to Europe’s biggest Hyundai dealership

Where is Europe’s biggest Hyundai dealership based?  Germany? France? Maybe even Spain?

Richmond Motor Group

The answer is, right here in the UK; and what’s more it is right here in the South of England, in the form of Allied Office Machines’ newest customer, Richmond Motor Group.

Catherine Brown, Richmond’s Office Manager said: “In the auto trade, the ability to print a lot of documents, often in colour, is very important.  And for staff in the showroom, a printer not working properly sometimes resulted in customers having to wait for sales documents.”

Richmond Motor Group had a large number of older, different brand printers across the group which were causing problems.  After getting good recommendations from some of our existing customers, Richmond Motor Group called us into undertake a ‘Print Audit’.  This provided them with a free appraisal of the company’s print requirements as well as looking in depth at the way their staff use printers.  “As a result of the Audit, we were able to make recommendations on a new energy, time and cost efficient print  solution, based on Ricoh @remote technology” said Steve Drayson, Managing Director of Allied Office Machines.  “The solution included 21 colour and mono Ricoh Multifunction Printers and a small number of other brand print only devices.”

And the new solution is already paying dividends.  By better understanding the company’s usage requirements, Allied have managed to reduce the number of devices and Richmond Motor Group now make better use of the energy efficient Multi-Function Printers which have been installed.  As a result Richmond Motor Group have realised savings of 26% year on year.
