Digital Printing Solutions creating your digital working environment
Since its formation in 1989, Abbey Business Equipment Limited has provided more than 23 years of service excellence to its clients. With offices in Cheltenham and Newport, Abbey is a market leader in the supply of intelligent print solutions. As an independent company we are not tied to providing equipment from a single manufacturer, enabling us to provide a range of products which are tailor-made for your business. Whether you are looking to rent or buy your next office printer, Abbey Business Equipment Limited offers a complete range of network-capable office printers that print in black and white, colour, or both as well as advanced finishing capabilities. From small offices to centralised production printing environments, we have a print solution to enhance your productivity.
Information Security Modern print devices pose a big threat to information security; every print, copy and scan creates an image on the hard drive within the printer. Any sensitive or personal information can be retrieved in minutes and emailed to any address anonymously. Abbey solves these security issues by installing software that erases the image securely after printing. Additional software can provide an audit trail of all machine functions and usage for companies which have to adhere to certain compliance regulations.
Cost Saving using Print Management Print costs are often an overlooked expenditure, costing up to 3% of a companyâ€™s revenue. Wasted prints and improper use of printing in colour can contribute to much of this cost. Abbey can put controls in place to make sure users adhere to a print policy which reduces waste by a minimum of 20%, and in some cases by as much as 50%.
