For almost 50 years we have heard and helped with many print problems and challenges business owners encounter.  Through our industry expertise we have found that by taking the time to visit an organisation and look into the business processes, the layout of the office and of course the print/copy output, we can recommend a tailored, cost effective print solution to fit the business needs and budget.

One of the dilemmas we encounter  is the decision between printing in house and outsourcing to a third party.  Typical questions are: Which one is right for the business? How can I produce and print what I what when I want in a cost effective way?

Most SME’s now have their own dedicated marketing department and are responsible for producing professional flyers and brochures. Marketing budgets can be limited and require a printing solution that won’t compromise on quality.

EMS have a wide range of cost-effective in-house print solutions available, with functionalities and features that were previously only available in professional production machines and with the ability to print on a wide variety of paper types and sizes.

EMS also offer a unique tiered colour billing system – put simply our system calculates the amount of colour you actually use per page so you only pay for the colour you use!


While to some organisations outsourcing appears to be a relatively inexpensive, cost effective hassle free way to manage print, it often brings several challenges:

  • Lack of control in terms of meeting deadlines and last minute changes to the job. By printing in house you can customize, add special effects your brochures and flyers. Avoiding additional charges and potential delays.

  • Security – Sending mailshots – any company regardless of the size or sector has to avoid data breaches and ensure data outsourced for print is sent, stored and managed in a secure compliant manner.  Data security on MFPs and in the network is gaining in significance. Our systems offer comprehensive support in answering today’s growing demands.  The solution range from UTAX addresses all levels, from local security features at system level right through to guaranteeing extensive network protection. Whether it’s standard integrated security solutions or customised, upgradeable security packages, UTAX  devices from EMS is your safe choice for copying, printing, scanning and faxing data.

  • Cost Effective – Outsourcing your print requirements can be a false economy as there are often many hidden costs. Print technology has progressed immensely in recent years, this means that businesses can produce large or small volumes of high-quality material, when they need it in their own office space eliminating the need for set up fees.  By arranging a print consultation with EMS we will quickly and efficiently determine your current print running costs, evaluate how cost affective your print environment is and through our range of top quality hardware and software recommend a tailored solution that suits your business.

If you would like to speak with one of the EMS team or arrange for a site visit so that we can pass on our recommendations and pricing options we would love to hear from you.

Your colour printing requirements shouldn’t be compromised by high colour costs.  With innovative Tiered Billing from EMS you can rest assured that you will only pay for the colour you use when you use it.

How does it work?  Our intuitive billing system available on our range of UTAX devices automatically calculates the amount of colour toner used to produce each page you print.  It then records the page against one of four meters depending on the level usage meaning you will only ever pay for the amount of colour you have used.

See how much you can save!

If most of your printing is at Colour Level 1 or Level 2 you are most likely being charged at colour Level 3.  See examples below of an approximate percentage coverage.


Level 1 – low colour 5%         Level 2 – mid colour 20%      Level 3 – high colour 40%
