A really enjoyable event at the fantastic Westgrove Hotel last Friday with a host of  GAA stars from present and past to showcase the event including Mick O’ Dwyer and the legendary Ó Sé brothers pictured below with EMS Copiers MD John Cahill.  In addition the one and only Barry Murphy (Après Match) was the MC and provided everyone with much entertainment.

 

 

EMS Copiers were delighted to be involved and donate the prize of an iPad in the best pic of the day competition organised by the hardworking team at Punchestown.  A fantastic idea to make this year’s festival even more enjoyable.

We love the winning pic as it really captures the atmosphere and essence of the Punchestown Festival.  Well done to all involved!

Team #109 had high hopes heading into the second round of the season at the Brands Hatch Indy circuit.  Aghadowey’s McGlinchey was once again the man to beat in the Dickies British Junior Supersport class, taking victory in the opening race of the weekend on Saturday , before scoring another two podium finishes in the remaining two races, standing on the second step both times and extending his lead in the championship to almost thirty points.

 

The weekend got off to a great start for the nineteen year old, finish free practice on Friday in third position, before going one place better in qualifying putting the Kawasaki Ninja 400 in the middle of the front row for the opening race of the weekend around the tight Indy track, finishing free practice in twenty-fifth, and starting from the track of the grid for the opening race after a difficult qualifying session.

With five podiums from the opening five races of the season, McGlinchey sits at a top of the championship standings with an impressive tally of one hundred and ten points, and a twenty nine point gap back to Kade Verwey in second position.  Glover is yet to score his first championship point, but after some promising performances this weekend, this is certainly not far away for the young Dubliner.

 Speaking about the weekend Team Manager Paul Tobin commented “Another excellent weekend for us as a team, Kevin showed his true championship crudentials this weekend with a great 5th place finish and more really good points in the bag as he heads into Oulton Park.

Punchestown Racecourse has announced details of their social media image upload competition for the 2018 Festival, Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th April. The ‘Photo Of The Day’ initiative, which will run each day of the event, will be rolled out on the official punchestownraces Instagram platform and all you need to do to enter is follow the feed and include #OutInTown18 on your festival Instagram snaps.

The judges will look for images that capture the essence of the Festival including racing action, style, social images, venue shots and of course racegoers having a great day out. However, all images must be taken by the Instagram profiler themselves and not a professional photographer or a repost of an image online.

The top five images across the week will be put to a public vote and the overall winner will receive a brand spanking new iPad generously sponsored by EMS Copiers. The final five images may also be published as part of the marketing campaign for the 2019 Punchestown festival.

This idea came about as each year the selection of images captured by the public attending the festival and shared on social media are truly incredible! They include high fashion shots of the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition, group shots of friends cheering winners home and of course, wonderful moments of racing action captured in motion. With the ever improving advances of mobile phone photography, everyone is a photographer now! So based on that theory we will have 125,000 photographers at the Punchestown Festival and with this competition and prize it will encourage them to share their #OutInTown18 experience”, Shona Dreaper, Punchestown Head of Communications.

The Punchestown Festival takes place from Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th of April 2018. The action-packed, fun-filled, style showcase attracts over 125,000 people to the famous racecourse. Festival tickets range from high-end hospitality packages to great value admission only and group packages from just €30pp, details at www.punchestown.com or by calling +353 (0)45 897704.

EMS Intelligent Billing System – Low Cost High Quality Colour –  Intelligent Billing systems also means that colour printing won’t cost you a fortune.  This intuitive system automatically calculates the amount of colour coverage used per page and only charges you for what you have actually used.  This means we can pass on huge savings for colour printing.

Secure Printing – With GDPR fast approaching, the UTAX Data Security Kit from EMS ensures the protection of your confidential information, right at the system level:

  • It overwrites and encrypts copying, scanning and printing data, even before they are saved to the hard drive.

  • In addition the memory area for the output data is automatically deleted so that the data cannot be restored.

Today’s printers and MFP’s have progressed from the basic devices previously used.  Most are now networked assets, similar to a PC, contain a screen, a keyboard, and a hard drive, which can store sensitive information.  Networked printers and MFP’s are often not considered when it comes to security measures.  However, these devices store and process data, and as intelligent devices have the same security vulnerabilities as any other networked device. With increased cybercriminal activity, networked office printers and MFP’s are now a focus in the battle against corporate information theft and malicious attack. Printers if not properly safeguarded have certain vulnerabilities that if exploited, can allow attackers to breach a business network.

UTAX Multifunctional Colour Systems from EMS: Take a look at the UTAX 2506ci/3206ci :

 

Unbelievable flexibility: You can process up to 7,150 sheets from six
paper feeds* for various media. Paper formats from A6R to SRA3, paper
weights from 52 to 300 g/m2 and even tab sheets are readily fed
from the paper cassettes. Papers of up to 256 g/m2 can also be processed in
duplex printing and used as cover sheets, for example. The innovative soft
close feature of our paper cassettes guarantees that paper can be added with
minimal sound. Do you need different finishing options? We can offer you
these! Everything is possible: from the space-saving internal finisher with
50-sheet stapling to a brochure finisher that also creates tri-folding for letters
in addition to brochures with up to 64 A4 or A5 pages. In addition, all finishers
can be equipped with a punch unit.

Simplest operation: The menus of the large 9-inch colour touch display
(picture diagonal: 22.86 cm) are intuitive to use. You can access the
home menu at all times via the home button plus you can adapt this
menu to suit your personal needs. The HyPAS interface allows you to easily
integrate software solutions* to optimise your specific processes. The systems
also feature an NFC interface for direct printing from an Android smartphone
or tablet*. Now there‘s nothing more standing in the way of mobility.
Professional printing: The 1,200 dpi resolution, newly developed toner,
printing in SRA3 format and the option to process different paper
thicknesses allow you to create highly professional documents in brilliant
colour quality. The versatile printer driver and the optional Fiery® Controller
available for the 3206ci system also offer various options for optimising colour
reproduction.

Maximum security: The ‘Private Printing’ function ensures that print
jobs can only be started directly on the system by authorised persons.
This means that confidential documents actually remain confidential.
The optional ‘Data Security Kit’ allows you to increase security even further.
Data on your hard disk is encrypted and securely deleted when it is no longer
needed.

 

EMS will be exhibiting at the ACCS Convention 2018 from Wednesday 7th until Friday 9th March at the Galmont Hotel and Spa, Lough Atalia Road, Galway.  The Association of Community and Comprehensive Schools (ACCS) is the national representative Association for 95 Community and Comprehensive Post-Primary Schools nationwide.

This years conference theme, “Making a Difference”, promises to make this an interesting and informative event.  The Minister for Education and Skills, Mr. Richard Bruton T.D. will be attending the ACCS Conference on Friday the 9th March.

Always a great conference EMS will be on hand to help schools and colleges prepare for new data regulations coming into force on 25th May 2018.  We are offering affordable, easy to use software solutions to help make sensitive staff and pupil data secure and compliant.

 

GDPR Aware?

The date for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fast approaching, 25th May 2018. GDPR will affect any organisation that stores personal data, this is defined as anything from a name, photo, bank details, email address. To assist organisations prepare and address upcoming GDPR compliance requirements, organisations may need to employ one or more different encryption methods within both on-premise and cloud environments. EMS is offering document management and data security solutions to minimise potential regulation breaches in the areas of printer security and data management.

Is your printer vulnerable?

Office printers and MFPs used in today’s organisations have progressed from the basic devices previously used.  Most are now networked assets, similar to a PC, contain a screen, a keyboard, and a hard drive, which can store sensitive information.

Networked printers and MFP’s are often not considered when it comes to  security measures.  However, these devices store and process data, and as intelligent devices have the same security vulnerabilities as any other networked device. With increased cybercriminal activity, networked office printers and MFP’s are now a focus in the battle against corporate information theft and malicious attack. Printers, if not properly safeguarded have certain vulnerabilities that if exploited, can allow attackers to breach a business’ network.

 

The UTAX Data Security Kit from EMS ensures the protection of your confidential information, right at the system level:

  • it overwrites and encrypts copying, scanning and printing data, even before they are saved to the hard drive.

  • In addition, the memory area for the output data is automatically deleted so that the data cannot be restored.

How can I protect my sensitive data and become more compliant?

For the majority of organisations, implementing a document management solution is likely to be  one of the most straightforward and cost effective ways to  protect your documents.  GDPR  requirements are not overly complex, the main points to remember are that any personal data stored will need to be accurate, quickly and easily accessed and kept up to date.

An automated approach to storing documents will move towards replacing outdated filing systems and alleviate incidents of “missing” sensitive documents. By integrating a document management system  for scanning documents, you can transfer paper-based documents and to an electronic file quickly, easily and securely.

EMS in partnership with Filestream offer OfficioDM Pro, document management software that encrypts documents making your data more compliant.  The software can run on the client server or can be hosted in the Cloud.  The software is roles based, meaning that you can give access to the people who only need to see it.
