ISSBA names Ipswich firm, Digital Copier Systems, Member of the Month for February.
The chances are, if you are in an office right now, or have been recently, you have probably used or seen a machine supplied by one of our members; Digital Copier Systems (Eastern) Limited.
As the region’s largest Managed Print Solutions supplier, Digital Copier Systems has seen many changes in its 17 years of trading, and one of the biggest developments in recent memory is happening right now.
Supplying organisations throughout the country with their printers and copiers, the company is seeing unprecedented demand for its software solutions, especially over the last 18 months.
Managing Director, Nigel Wallis remarks;
“Over the last year and a half, we have witnessed more and more businesses wanting to reduce the amount of time they spend handing, storing and retrieving documents. Thousands of hours are spent each year manually managing documents. We have been busy matching our customers requirements with the right solutions, that also resolves their issues.”
Reduced productivity and spiralling costs are not the only issues organisations are facing this year. The hot topic at the moment on everyone’s lips is “GDPR”. The General Data Protection Regulation is the biggest change in data protection law in over 20 years, and it is vital that organisations are aware of their obligations and responsibilities when It comes to data protection.
Having the ability to scan, record, track and retrieve data, as well as knowing exactly where that data is stored, and who has access to it, is imperative. The digitisation of key documents can certainly help organisations with their compliance.
We spoke to Digital Copier Systems’ Software Solutions expert, Sean McLaughlan;
“The lack of smooth processes we see at many organisations are leaving them exposed, upset customers or prospects, to potential fines from the ICO, as well as public relations failures. This is the perfect opportunity for businesses to review their processes, look at their compliance, and start streamlining their procedures. There is no room for error when it comes to the security of data in your business. We are supplying excellent software solutions to our customers, with bespoke tailoring to different business types and industries, and they are seeing a fast return in investment.”
Michael Paul, IT Manager at Athona Recruitment is Essex, has utilised software and hardware solutions from Digital Copier Systems, not only to reduce their exposure to GDPR, but to also enjoy significant value add to his business.
“Automatic grey-scaling of jobs to reduce waste of resources, print archiving for data protection and retention policies, all the while reducing my overall print costs by thousands.”
