Campus Print Review 2015

What are we doing?

We're reviewing our print, copy, scan and fax infrastructure to make it more efficient.

We did this before in 2011. 2015's audit will mirror the work we did in 2011, helping us to gauge the progress our Managed Print Service has made.

When will this audit happen?
NewField IT staff are expected on site from Monday 7 December 2015 to Friday 18 December 2015. The audit will resume on Monday 4 January 2016, and we expect it to take another 2 to 3 weeks.
