UXBRIDGE – Leading fresh produce company, Capespan, has invested in Xerox’s ColorQube 9200 device - the world’s first high-speed solid ink office multifunction printer - in a drive to reduce colour printing costs.

Selected through Xerox partner, First Choice Business Systems, Capespan has installed two Xerox ColorQube 9200 multifunction printers at its Kent headquarters. Xerox’s award-winning device cuts the cost of colour pages significantly; customers can save up to 62 percent compared with traditional colour laser printers, without compromising quality. As a result, Capespan has already achieved a saving of over 2,500 in 2010.

The ColorQube prints, scans and copies all in one device with advanced technology that simplifies use and maintenance. The multifunction system was chosen by Capespan for this ease of use and its ability to print high volumes at fast speeds, as well as the benefits of its innovative solid ink technology.

Jeremy Sykes, Network Manager, Capespan explained: “Our objective was to consolidate printing equipment, but to retain productivity levels; the ColorQube has enabled us to do that effectively. The cost of colour printing has always been a major concern for us so I am delighted that the Xerox technology has helped to reduce our costs by such a significant margin.

“The new ColorQubes provide excellent quality and, as I find with all Xerox machines, are proving to be extremely reliable; something which benefits my workload greatly! Furthermore, as the ColorQube uses solid ink technology and not cartridges, we have less waste and we don’t require as much storage.”

Mark Duffelen, director and general manager, Channels Group, Xerox UK and Ireland, commented: “Xerox technology is designed to make business easier and the ColorQube 9200 does just that – it brings down the cost of colour printing, while improving customer productivity and efficiency. The cost savings delivered by the ColorQube 9200 device is a key USP for customers, such as Capespan, during these challenging economic times.”

Jeremy concluded: “We did look at offers from different suppliers but none have been able to match First Choice Business Systems’ quality of service and equipment. As our preferred supplier in this area, they always provide us with excellent value-for-money; everything is taken care of and completely hassle free.”
