Pepperdine University Improves Print Management and Simplifies Document Imaging

Business Environment Challenges
With six campuses across Southern California, including its main campus in Malibu, Pepperdine University serves more than 7,500 students and 2,000 faculty and staff. When the university’s MFP lease expired, Pepperdine needed to find a manufacturer that would not only be able to provide quality printers, but also help control some of the print spending and volume by its faculty, staff and students.  

“When print jobs are released, both students and employees can see the associated cost, allowing them to not only manage their personal spending, but also make more responsible printing decisions.”
