    Wow!  Great questions. Equipment - We did have long-term contracts in place with Ricoh, Konica Minolta, and Xerox. Because we did not use a single managed print partner, we had the opportunity to leverage the existing contracts and negotiate the best rates.  We did not implement a managed print solution with a major vendor.  We instead retain ...

    Thank you so much for the additional info.  A couple of questions...

    I am so curious about this.  We just went through the RFP process and have changed providers for campus, but I wondered if there could be a way to centrally operate as a profit center.  I appreciate Lorelle's perspective as well - seems like maintenance and supplies costs, and staffing, could make it cost prohibitive.  Thanks for asking and I will certainly ...

    We operate our copiers / MFD units as a profit center here at PPCC.  The initial goals in transitioning our models were to reduce use and quantity of less economical inkjet units and normalize the cost across campus.  Some departments had dozens of desktop printers while other departments were burdened by high lease costs.  For example, we operate a ...

    Hello colleagues, I'm looking for examples of universities where the housing enterprise reports up through Administration and Finance.  For those for which this is the case, I'd really appreciate an attached org chart, and would further appreciate any narrative you can share about the partnership you have with Student Affairs. For those universities ... Read More
