Charter School Optimizes Document Workflow and Efficiency through Balanced Deployment

Administrators of Appel Farm’s Creativity CoLaboratory Charter School, a middle school focused on project-based, hands-on learning, sought office solutions to support their printing, copying, and scanning needs. However, the 115-acres campus – 35 buildings –presented a challenge. Teachers and students required equipment at the point of production – the classroom. Small workgroups within the administration building also needed access to printers to produce weekly newsletters, report cards, event calendars, class schedules, release forms, and letterhead. For this geographically disparate environment, Brother recommended a balanced deployment approach, whereby robust laser printers and MFPs are placed near those that need them most. By shifting volume from centralized to local devices, the school could create a more efficient environment and improve ease of use. The print infrastructure was right-sized to the customer’s specific document imaging needs in order to maximize efficiency campus wide.
