The School aims to provide a caring atmosphere in which children with special needs are encouraged to develop effective communication, social and independence skills and achieve his or her potential.

Mr Davies, IT Manager explains: “We look after all the equipment for 250 pupils and 220 staff. We look after children of all ages – from one up to 18 year olds and they all need support. Each class has a class RFID card to release print and we know the IT has to work properly as some of the children can get upset if they can’t collect their printing when they expect to.”

“We went to BETT Show in January 2013 and spoke to people about print solutions because we knew that even if we upgraded our existing HP printers they wouldn’t be robust enough. We knew KYOCERA printers were solid and robust and it was easy for the teachers to replace the toner so we were interested in learning more.”

Mr Davies said: “We visited ITQ at BETT and the rest is history. We spoke to James Wilding, ITQ Sales Manager, a lovely guy who still deals with us. He spends time with us and takes the time to train our staff.

The school purchased the award-winning KYOCERA TASKalfa4550ci, TASKalfa3050ci, TASKalfa 2550ci and SC2626MFPs

Installed with SafeCom Go print management embedded on the printers ensures confidential, secure printing and adds secure pull print functionality to the MFPs. User authentication is simple users just swipe their RFID card to retrieve their printing. Using SafeCom Go with the KYOCERA devices also cut paper and supply costs by up to 20%.”
