Multifunction Device Replacement Project

UVic campus

A new scan-copy-print environment is on its way

UVic is entering into an agreement with Ricoh Canada to provide new multifunction (print / scan / copy / fax) devices, printers and fleet management services to campus. The contract with Ricoh is an outcome of the joint procurement process for BC’s 25 public post-secondary institutions and the Ministry of Education, and will begin with site visits by Ricoh to assess how document handling—by photocopy, printing and scanning—works in different campus offices. Information from the initial phase of the project will guide equipment replacement as well as future enhancements to UVic’s print and document management infrastructure.

Ricoh staff surveyed our physical layout, mapped printing assets, and discussed how work processes that involve paper and/or digital media affect daily work on campus. The first wave of device deployments is occuring from August 9-18 and the team is currently gathering requirements for the next deployment at the end of September.
