Case Study


Canon uniFLOW at the helm of one of the largest print management projects in the region

It was important for us to outsource the entire print management system, but with defined parameters that will enable NIS to monitor the service quality. With the introduction of print as a service that is paid per printed page we signicantly reduced our costs compared to the situation we had before.

Office Building

Before the introduction of Canon print management system, NIS did not use any solution of this kind. Each connected company was purchasing equipment for their own needs, separately for each individual user, which led to having more than 4,500 devices in use. Stock management of consumables was almost impossible, therefore increasing costs even more.

The chosen solution was supposed to provide significant cost reduction and transparency. Our request was to provide control over toner and paper consumption, including consumption reports on levels of individual users, cost centers and devices.  Quality of the entire system for printing, scanning and copying is on a much higher level, since the advanced devices offer us more features. Possibility to print from mobile devices is also one of the advantages that is very well accepted among our employees.

After acquisition by Russian Gazprom, one of the first tasks was to consolidate and centralise the IT department. This involved centralisation of print management for more than 600 business locations and replacement of obsolete equipment. Canon’s solutions provided a highly optimised and productive print environment for 5,000 employees, with higher print quality, improved document security and significant cost reduction.
