“Apogee's solution has helped French Connection achieve cost savings of 25-30%, achieved by delivering the most suitable hardware and ensuring French Connection’s print fleet is consistent, standardized and consolidated throughout UK stores.”

– French Connection Representative

The Background

French Connection was using an unconsolidated fleet of devices across their business units and wanted to put an effective print strategy in place. Apogee provided the opportunity to supply new hardware and technology to deliver several benefits as a result of effectively controlling the company’s print fleet.

 

The Solution

Apogee’s Professional Services team visited the locations of French Connection offices throughout the UK and reviewed the existing print infrastructure. By gaining a deep understanding of the company’s workflows, printing habits, and office environment, Apogee recommended Canon printers and MFDs that would deliver a broad variety of cost and efficiency improvements.

Working together with staff at French Connection, Apogee was able to transfer the company from a fleet of mixed brands and models to a unified, single-brand infrastructure, consisting of 140 Canon printers and MFDs with centralised control and management.

 

The Outcome

Centralised print management delivers a single point of control and oversight of all print jobs and queues for French Connection’s entire print fleet across all UK branches. The company is able to analyse all print jobs to make informed decisions and allocate costs accordingly. What’s more, French Connection now benefits from reliable devices with greater productivity capacity and less capital expenditures, facilitating increased efficiency.

Likewise, with Apogee as their single supplier, French Connection receives enhanced service levels and contact Apogee whenever issues occurs. French Connection can also produce more unique, bespoke materials as Apogee's independence ensure access to multiple devices/software.

Significantly, Apogee's solution has helped French Connection achieve cost savings of 25-30%, achieved by delivering the most suitable hardware and ensuring French Connection’s print fleet is consistent, standardised and consolidated throughout UK stores.
