Konica Minolta and UTL help Saracens RFC keep its eye on the ball with upgraded in-house marketing print solutions

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd and UTL London (part of UTL Group) have supplied the famous North London-based Saracens Rugby Club with two Konica Minolta bizhub C250i multifunction devices, along with the PaperCut MF print management software. The solution ensures the club’s print resources continue to be highly reliable and cost-effective, supporting its growing activities in Premiership Rugby.

Saracens Rugby Club prides itself on keeping supporters up to speed with all the latest fixtures and merchandising offers, which often depends upon paper-based marketing materials. Knowing its solution was ready for an overhaul and update to ensure the reliability and quality of print, the club turned to UTL Group, and specifically UTL London (the company’s Managed Print Solutions (MPS) Division) to find the answer.

Following a thorough audit and having spoken in-depth to the Saracens management team about what was required, UTL London specified two of Konica Minolta’s powerful yet cost-efficient and flexible bizhub C250i multifunction devices, along with the PaperCut MF print management software which expertly calculates, recovers, and reduces print output costs to ensure ultimate efficiency of the solution.

Simple to operate, yet easy to connect and fully secure, the bizhub C250i delivers up to 25 ppm (pages per minute) in colour and black & white, handling paper formats from A6 SRA3, along with custom formats and banner format of up to 1.2 metres length – ideal for the needs of the Saracens admin team.

The new print solution has made a big impact as Chris states, “As well as super colour and print quality, reliability is also the big bonus of using the Konica Minolta bizhub C250i, ensuring the club’s marketing team always has the ability to produce the right print products when they are needed.”

The PaperCut MF print management software also ensures it is easy to enforce rules-based printing to define what, how, and where products are printed. It reports usage and costs by page, user, cost centre/department, device, and function. PaperCut MF includes both integrated print and scan capabilities. The intuitive user interface offers a consistent and easy experience across numerous BYOD (bring your own device) options across any browser, including iOS or Chromebook, for perfect flexibility.

These benefits are backed up by UTL London’s and Konica Minolta’s first-class service and support, which is perfectly timed to support the expansion of the Saracens ground with the building of the club’s new West Stand and the conversion of the new co-working space – which may see the arrival of a third Konica Minolta bizhub C250i in due course.
