Empowering teachers – empowering learning

Manor House is a post-primary school in North-East Dublin with a student population of around 800. They reached out to Canon in June 2022 to replace their existing machines with a suite of remanufactured EQ80 multifunction printers (MFPs), and to implement uniFLOW - enabling staff to manage their entire print environment with a cloud first strategy and allowing a seamless print experience, both at school and remotely, supporting hybrid working post pandemic.

Prior to Canon’s involvement, schoolteachers were struggling to operate their previous machines - it was taking staff nearly a minute to log into devices, and an average of a further 48 seconds before the print job was complete.

“In the past, problematic machines impacted teaching and learning. Switching to Canon ensured we had a smooth start to a new school year. We are delighted with our new printing solution.”

Anna Dunwoody, Deputy Principle at Manor House

Working together towards a common goal

The implementation of imageRUNNER ADVANCE EQ80 multifunction printers and uniFLOW enabled an innovative and flexible way of working. Printing can now be carried out remotely, at home or on the go, meaning jobs are ready for teachers to collect the next day. Staff can prepare the work they need in the evenings, remotely send these jobs to the printers, and simply hit the button when they get to the school, delivering improved productivity and increased efficiency.

In addition, unlike with their previous provider, Manor House staff don’t have to check in on the machines. Canon eMaintenance enables regular checks and toner orders are undertaken automatically - giving staff one less thing to worry about.

Creating sustainable change

The machines provide the same reliable copy, scan and print solutions, but crucially reduce environmental impact.

Seamless printing

The high quality output of the MFDs also enables staff to print their own booklets for events such as Open Evenings – reducing further on cost and time wastage, and allowing staff more control and efficiency.
