What is a Managed Print Solution?



Essentially a Managed Print Solution is a new device/s with no capital outlay with maintenance and toner included.  All EMS 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-location 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 provide 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.










The Management and staff at EMS Copiers would like to wish all of our valued customers and friends a very Happy Christmas.  We look forward to working with you in 2019.

Christmas Business Hours:

Monday 17th December – Thursday 20th December 9 am – 5.30am

Office closes Friday 21st December at 1 pm

Normal business hours resume 9 am Wednesday 2nd January

Remember last toner orders taken Wednesday 19th December by 1pm !!

More and more of us realise that while we try to do our bit to “go greener” we need to replicate our habits in the workplace.

Busy offices all around the country will be familiar with the nonstop use of toner that your office photocopier or printer use every day and the potential impact that this could be having on the environment.  The protection of our environment is a very important part of our company policy. We face the challenge of harmonizing this responsibility with the reliability of our products whilst ensuring we keep your costs down!

What makes EMS office printers and photocopiers environmentally friendly?

  • All photocopiers and office printers comply with environmental directives driven by law
  • They do not use lead in any products due to strict conformity with the European Restrictions of Hazardous Substances Directive.
  • Non-toxic and non-carcinogenic toner
  • Fully recyclable materials
  • EMS will dispose of products free of charge and ensure they are disposed and recycled meeting the requirements of the European Union (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations 2014
  • Our machines are energy star certified

Toner-Waste Disposal    

Our toner meets the different requirements of our systems.

UTAX original toner is neither toxic nor carcinogenic. This is confirmed by the AMES test. The test results are stated in the security data sheets.

Some of our copiers have a sealed self-contained toner system that eliminates disagreeable physical contact with the toner. These advanced copiers leave no toner residues at all.

We will take back machines when they reach the end of life. Please contact us for details. “

“EMS Copiers is committed to meeting the requirements of the European Union (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations 2014. These Regulations require producers of electrical and electronic equipment to finance the takeback, for reuse or recycling, of WEEE resulting from products that we placed on the Irish market. In line with that commitment, EMS Copiers will take back WEEE from you.

Environment – Energy Consumption

 The energy consumption of electrical appliances is one important factor concerning their ecological efficiency. During the last years, considerable progress was made regarding the minimization of the energy consumption of copiers, fax machines and printers. This is vital for the protection of our natural resources.

In 1992 the US Office for Environmental Protection started the “Energy Star” programme. In 2001 this programme was officially introduced in the European Union. It covers standards regarding energy consumption of systems in the so-called standby mode. Since July 2009 revised and more stringent requirements apply. The systems which fulfil these standards are allowed to bear the “Energy Star” mark.

Environment – Emissions / Noise Level 

 There are also strict legal limiting values concerning emissions of systems. These values are fixed and checked in special measurements.

Some results of our products concerning ozone, dust and styrol are even lower than the legal values. The results are stated in our environmental data sheets.

Besides the positive emission values also the low noise level of our products leads to a pleasant work climate. Our systems are equipped with “stand-by” or “sleep” mode which eliminates noise almost completely. The noise level during operation is, like the other emission values, lower than prescribed by law. This ensures productive work.
