Existing Situation

For the last 60 years, WPIL has been a known name in designing, developing, manufacturing, erecting, commissioning and servicing of pumps & pumping systems. The workflow in its registered office, situated in Topsia, Kolkata involves heavy usage of printers with requirement for constant photocopying and printing. Its other branch in Sodepur is not free from excess generation of hardcopy either. With the breakdown of the two machines purchased from different brands, they preferred a rental scheme to do away with the maintenance hassles and high cost.


Problem Statement

The end output or ROI with the existing printing environment was not satisfactory as a lot of money used to be wasted on maintenance. Handling machine breakdowns, tracking exhaustion and stock of toners and cartridge were also difficult as there was no dedicated operator to handle the operation of the devices. More than 300 prints per day of various capacities led to frequent breakdown and reduced the life of the devices. After the machines broke down, WPIL wanted to outsource the entire printing hassle. They did not know which machine would be best suited for our office and existing printing practices and apprehended a bad investment for the second time.


Solution Offered

A well planned rental system was the only solution to this problem. Somnetics studied the printing requirement of WPIL and rounded off a daily production of about 500 prints per day covering both the branches. Three MFDs were given out on rent, with two installed in the Topsia branch and one in the Sodepur branch. Two workgroups were created in the Topsia branch with one machine looking after the printing requirement of each. A centralized printing environment was implemented in its registered office. An operator was appointed to look after the maintenance, resolve issues and manage consumables.
