EMS Managed Print Solution is underpinned by intuitive software, robust user-friendly hardware and a dedicated team of staff. We have been working with both the business and education sectors since 1970, so we know what we are talking about!

What is a Managed Print Solution?

Essentially a new device/s with no capital outlay.  Maintenance and toner included.  All of our devices print, copy and scan.  EMS offers a range of bespoke software solutions designed for specific functions or vertical markets to fit in with your business process.   Our software packs are essentially a mix of software, hardware and professional services that, when combined, produce a package of products bespoke to the clients’ needs with the flexibility to adapt and scale as required.

What type of company benefit from Managed Print?

There is a common myth among smaller businesses that Managed Print is only viable for organisations with a large staff base.  While EMS have implemented our Managed Print into large multi-locational organisations, we have passed on significant savings to smaller companies with perhaps just a few members of staff.  Many of the smaller companies we work with are often surprised by how much they actually print and their subsequent spend.

Why an EMS Managed Print Solution is different

EMS provides a service-based, dedicated, no-frills, tailored Managed Print Solution.  So no, we don’t supply you with stationery, furniture or claim that our devices will make your morning coffee.  However, we can guarantee you that you will receive efficient, reliable devices, scalable software all backed up by a team of highly qualified and experienced field engineers.

The tailored approach – EMS take the time to get to know you and your business

Before we implement a Managed Print Solution we take the time to familiarize ourselves with the organisation, its layout and carry out a detailed audit of the volumes produced on the existing devices.  Factors such as the business expanding or downsizing are all taken into account.  By taking the time to go through this process EMS can provide a detailed and accurate analysis of potential cost and efficiency savings.

Taking care of colour costs

EMS also offers an intuitive Intelligent Colour Billing Solution.  Put simply, we automatically calculate the amount of colour toner you use per page and reflect this in your billing.  So you only get charged for the amount of colour you actually use.

The Benefits of Intelligent Colour Billing:

  • Reduce Print Costs – Only pay for the colour you use
  • Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • Complete visibility and traceability of your print costs
  • No compromise on print quality
  • Increased sustainability – Less toner usage means less waste

 

 

GDPR

To assist our customers prepare and address recent GDPR compliance requirements, EMS offers the Data Security Kit on our hardware.  This software assists organisation that may need to employ one or more different encryption methods within both on-premise and cloud environments.

Our aim is to minimise potential regulation breaches in the areas of printer security and data management.

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

Data Security Kit

IT Printer Security is indispensable for secure business operations and uninterrupted processes.  Whether it is because of the increasing threat of cyber attacks, the growing number of applications and sensitive data, or new regulatory requirements, security in office communication represents a challenge for every place of education. 

Functions offered:

  • Encrypts documents and user data automatically before they are saved to the hard drive (in compliance with AES-256)

  • Overwrites data that is no longer required and memory areas from which data have already been “logically” deleted

  • Triple overwriting (standard setting): The same area is overwritten twice with a random pattern and finally with zeros

  • Password protected for administrators

  • Certified according to ISO 15408 EAL 2

Advantages for customers:

Protects confidential data right at the system level, and thus increases the protection of your  data against unauthorised access

  • Secure method for overwriting and encryption of data, which makes the restoration of information virtually impossible

  • Simple implementation and intuitive operation directly at the MFP or printer

The result of a data breach can be devastating to a school or college, large or small. As well as huge penalties, imposed by strict new compliance regulations there is damage to a schools reputation.  As firewalls are no longer enough to protect your data, it is essential to implement multiple layers of protection down to every network endpoint—from PCs to printer and address compliance requirements.

Last Wednesday, June 26th, EMS sponsored the County Kildare Chamber social evening at Naas Racecourse.  The weather was fab and a really great evening was had by all.  With over 50 businesses attending it made for an ideal setting for some leisurely networking!

EMS Copiers were delighted to sponsor Sinéad Leonard over the weekend at the Dublin Rose selection evening at the Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan.  Unfortunately, Sinéad wasn’t selected on this occasion, however, commented that she really enjoyed the whole experience as it is something that she has always wanted to take part in.

Huge congrats to the new Dublin Rose Laura Vines.  We would like to wish Laura the best of luck in the Rose of Tralee competition in August.
