SCC saves London University more than £80k a year with Document Production Unit

SCC Document Services offers a range of services and solutions from its Document Production Unit (DPU) that support business continuity plans and enable new ways of working, quickly and efficiently, whilst saving significant costs on print production and real estate.

SCC Document Services’ DPU supports businesses across all sectors, including education, for one of the UK’s leading universities.

The London-based university which wanted to reduce real estate costs whilst ensuring uninterrupted ease of access for staff and students – a vital factor in the solution design. This involved the replacement of the university’s onsite production facility to an offsite location, with a daily delivery service supplying printed materials within 24 hours and urgent requirements made possible by operating the production facility from a local SCC site.

A new Web2Print solution provides university staff with templated documentation for marketing and general teaching requirements.

As a result, the university has benefitted from real estate savings of over £80k per annum, improved finishing options through the use of Document Production Centre, management information and recharge data for each printed request and a predictable, scalable pay-as-you-go pricing model.

The DPU has supported customers during the COVID-19 pandemic, with SCC’s dedicated team of specialists on hand to tailor services and adapt quickly to changing conditions throughout the UK’s lockdown period.
