Howard Kennedy was previously using print devices supplied by multiple manufacturers, with mail room staff and equipment from TNT. Combined with three recently merged firms residing in three separate buildings, Howard Kennedy needed to streamline its operations.
With plans to move to one main office, the reliance on a multitude of suppliers posed a significant risk to productivity. With relocation just a few months ahead, project timescales were a key factor and any solutions had to incorporate printing, mailing and client billing requirements.
By fully understanding the client’s requirements and following our proven blank canvas approach, Apogee quickly evaluated the most suitable blend of solutions. The removal of existing suppliers was key, in order to start with a clean slate and ensure Howard Kennedy’s needs were met with one fully integrated solution.
The initial focus on improving print and mail room operations recommended the replacement of large mail room devices and the takeover of staff. The mobilisation of a single solution for document production was also proposed, to satisfy the entire document processing and print requirements of the business, all within the timescales of the project window.
Howard Kennedy were delighted with the integrated approach taken by Apogee, and the fact that implementation could be completed within the timescales provided. With the installation of large mail and post room devices, mailing operations have now been rationalised. The postal department has been outsourced, with Apogee providing the staff to ensure a smooth operation.
A fully Managed Service has been implemented, with a range of devices from multiple manufacturers providing a customised solution. Document production efficiency is significantly enhanced, security has been improved whilst costs and wastage have been reduced.
