It's not easy to manage all the many technology systems needed to keep a school running, and it's even harder to handle this in an efficient and cost-effective manner. This is where Brother can help teachers and administrators get the most out of their printers and multi-function devices.
Staying within strictly controlled school budgets requires the efficient use of technology and consumables. This applies to a surprisingly wide range of processes at schools as modern printing solutions aren't just about printing documents. From enhancing secure visitor management to improving document capture and management workflows, schools will discover many ways to improve their efficiency, security and sustainability.
Schools can see benefits including:
The following are a few of the specific ways schools can achieve these advantages:
Every room in a school needs different devices - from affordable, high-volume printers in dedicated printing rooms to networked scanners in school libraries and small-footprint printers and multi-function devices for classrooms - and there are distinct advantages to matching an appropriate device to every room:
With a Managed Print Services solution, school administrators gain greater control over their printing and general document workflows. The visibility afforded by Managed Print Services allows staff members to carefully shape all aspects of printing, from giving students a limited number of printing credits, to additional benefits such as:
Today's students don't just work with physical documents or digital files; they have to be able to seamlessly move information between these two formats. Scanners and multi-function devices are necessary pieces of educational information technology, especially in school libraries where pupils need a way to quickly store information they've found in books and other reference materials. The possibilities with these systems include:
Keeping schools secure means controlling the guests who visit the premises. A modern digitally enabled visitor management system is more efficient and effective than a pen-and-paper guestbook system, delivering an improved workflow and tighter security. Combining networked software with a reliable label printer for instant badge creation, these systems have several benefits including:
Label printers are versatile and useful additions to the school technology landscape. In addition to potential use at the front desk as part of a visitor management system - creating badges that can immediately stick onto guests' clothes - there are other valuable use cases for labels in your school:
Your customised experience with print solutions for education should advance your institution's specific goals. This can involve some of the most urgent priorities for schools today, including cost control, security and environmental sustainability.
Cost control advantages include:
Security upgrades may come from the following:
Sustainability benefits of modern printing approaches consist of:
