Dudley MBC continues to choose Midshire as Print Solutions Partner

Posted on

Now celebrating their 25th year in business in the region, Midshire Business Systems has successfully secured official print partner status with Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council for a four-year term.

Midshire was awarded the contract as the sole contractor to supply and maintain multi-functional equipment across the borough council. Based just 5 miles from the Midshire Midlands office, the Dudley MBC contract commenced on the 1st April 2015.

Toshiba PhotocopiersMidshire MD, Phil Powell comments: “I am pleased to announce that Midshire Business Systems has been successful in winning the Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council tender for the supply of multi-functional photocopiers.

Dudley MBC’s decision to select Midshire, not only confirms our ability, in conjunction with Sharp, to supply quality products at competitive prices, it also demonstrates the excellent service and backup provided by the people who manage and look after the contract in our service, sales and accounts departments.”

Midshire has worked hard to ensure that Dudley Council continues to receive the highest quality service and maintenance. With dedicated service staff employed solely to maintain the Dudley base, current machine up-times are recorded at over 99% and this highlights the proactive approach of the Midshire service team, who was recently shortlisted in the Service provider of the Year category at the Midlands Business Awards 2015.

Kevin Meredith, Midshire Account Manager for Dudley Metropolitan Council explains:

“Midshire now goes beyond simply supplying printing and copying equipment. As the working environment continually changes, new fleet management software, such as PaperCut proves invaluable for controlling and managing a multiple machine installation and provides organisations with functions such as print release and print quotas. This can really help large organisations save money and reduce print waste.

I’ve really enjoyed working with Dudley MBC, implementing new software and procedures and I look forward to working with them for a further four years.”

Midshire is committed to business excellence, and has recently completed its accreditation in ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management. ISO27001 is internationally recognised and clearly demonstrates Midshire’s commitment to data protection in relation to the supply, installation and maintenance of photocopiers, facsimile machines, digital printers and paper handling equipment.

Midshire is already ISO 9001, 14001, and 18001 accredited. As a full service technology provider the company continues to strive for excellence in all areas to uphold its industry stronghold and reputation for excellence.

Midshire is recognised nationally across all commercial and public sectors as one of the largest independent resellers in the UK and number one in the Midlands.

Considerable growth over the last three years has seen the company open two further regional offices, turnover exceed £25 million and staff numbers increase to over 220.
