In November 2013, Wallmans won the CitySwitch “New Signatory of the Year” national award for their efforts in upgrading infrastructure and effecting positive behavioural change. In addition they encouraged other business to improve their environmental footprint and adopt energy efficient practices.
Wallmans believe upgrading their printer fleet with Konica Minolta bizhub C654 devices played an important role in winning their award and have become strong advocates for adopting smart printing practices.
The culmination of frustration around high printing costs, increasing maintenance and service calls, an inflexible leasing agreement, and ongoing consumable costs including paper and toners, ultimately led to Wallmans approaching Konica Minolta to help them assess their print environment.
Konica Minolta’s first recommendation was to rationalise Wallmans printing fleet from seven outdated printers to six energy efficient bizhub C654 devices.
Since upgrading and consolidating their printer fleet with Konica Minolta’s bizhub C654 devices, Wallmans have not only benefited from cost reductions, but have profited from many other advantages - such as improved environmental efficiencies.
Rationalising the printing fleet from seven to six devices has saved the firm 1,000 KWH per annum alone which has shaved $250 off their annual power bill and will save 0.8 tonnes of carbon emissions (CO2) per annum.
