H&R Block, Mudgee, prints in excess of 40,000 documents every year. As a result, it was critical to their business that the printing solution selected was able to keep up with their usage. After performing a full evaluation, the office in Mudgee went with the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC.
“When you print over 40,000 documents a year you have to look at your printing costs and we did. We also looked at getting one central printer as opposed to several ones scattered throughout the office, but in saying that, again, the costs had to work for us. When we did the evaluation we realised we could replace all of our existing printers with the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC and it would work out at one cent per page as opposed to seven cents we were currently paying moving forward.” – Jim Dryburgh, H&R Block Mudgee.
The printing solution from Epson not only provides them with increased productivity but also a predictive cost model for print costs. The Epson
Replaceable Ink Pack System Printing Solution (RIPS) is capable of printing up to 75,000 pages in black or 75,000 pages in colour before requiring replacing.
“When you do your research you find that Epson RIPS printers for offices like ours are very hard to beat. The life of the ink, the sheer volume they print and at such a low cost makes the decision a no-brainer. We really did look at all the different manufacturers’ offerings including laser but when you added up the cost of a laser printer plus all of the toner it was simply more expensive than the Epson RIPS solution. We also wanted to get away from the messiness of toner and move towards the simplicity of an inkjet solution so the WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC was ideal.” – Jim Dryburgh
For H&R Block Mudgee, they have found a clear winner with the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC printing solution. Being both cost effective and easy to run makes it the perfect “all around office printing solution” for them.
