With the squeeze on higher education budgets all areas of the university college are looking to make savings. On our high volume black and white photocopier alone we produce 1.25 million copies a quarter and our colour copier averages about 30,000 copies per quarter.

“Arena recently installed 21 new multi-function machines across the whole campus linked to the PCs on our network. They help to cut costs because they are more energy efficient and we save on printer toner costs. Staff now print directly from their PCs so desktop printers are being phased out," says Julie Orange, publications service supervisor at Leeds Trinity University College.

“The financial future of higher education is uncertain and the challenge is to continue to provide high quality education and a great student experience within new budgetary constraints. For my team working with a supplier like Arena, who provides cost effective products and an efficient service, is key.

“We selected Arena to supply our photocopiers and multi-function printers thanks to the excellent customer service from their sales representative, Tim Bye. Not only did he offer us the most competitive quote, he has been fantastic in following it up, everything we ask he responds to immediately.

“The after sales service has also been brilliant, and the team at Arena are so easy to contact, either online or by phone.

“Leeds Trinity has a carbon management plan that aims to reduce CO2 emissions over five years. It is really important to us that we buy products and services that are energy efficient in line with our goals to be a sustainable campus.”
