Making the most of school resources
With almost 1000 students in its care, ranging from 11-18 years of age, Wyedean School and Sixth Form Centre near Chepstow is a very busy centre of education. To ensure the school runs efficiently its dedicated Resource Centre requires efficient and cost effective printing technologies. AR Digital recently installed a state of the art Riso C7150 colour photocopier at the school.
Tina Watkins, Executive Service Manager, said, “There has been a change in education policy over the past few years. There is very little coursework and instead we have moved to an exam based approach. In order to prepare students properly the only tool at our disposal is past exam papers as a means to test their progress. As you can imagine, this takes a great deal of photocopying.
“We were looking to replace our ageing photocopiers but a fortuitous call out of the blue from AR Digital led us to view and ultimately purchase the Riso copier. It is now our Resource Centre workhorse. It just keeps churning out the photocopying as required and I honestly don’t know how the office staff would have coped without it. It has speeded everything up while at the same time it has also reduced our costs.”
Rick Porazinski, AR Digital's Managing Director, added, “We are pleased to have been able to improve the back office function at Wyedean. The Riso copier delivers 120 pages per minute which has not only helped the School streamline its print production but also transform its efficiency. It is also one of the most eco-friendly products on the market with it superior low energy consumption.”
