Maintenance & Service

  • Overview


Ongoing Maintenance and Support

As a service provider, our relationship with our customers doesn’t just end once the equipment has been installed. We look after your equipment for the duration of a contract, ensuring that your photocopier, IT system or telephone system works just as well on the last day of the contract as it did on day one.

Photocopiers, Printers & Managed Print Services

As part of the Midshire Managed Print Service, our customers receive ongoing service support for the duration of the contract. All service calls are handled by our in-house Customer Service Department. All service requests are logged electronically. Support calls are then assigned to the correct department for action. Engineers are assigned to attend hardware calls based on experience and location.

We do not use subcontractors for our photocopier service contracts. We have over 47 manufacturer trained engineers and technicians as part of the service team, that operate on a targeted 4-hour response time.

Our engineers have attended and continue to attend manufacturer run courses to improve their knowledge and experience of the machines they service. In addition, engineers from the relevant manufacturers can accompany our engineers on customer calls, in extreme or rare cases, to maintain high support and knowledge levels.

To prevent return-to-fit calls, all engineers carry a substantial car stock of spare parts. However, on occasion when a part not available on the car stock, engineers will look to other engineers located close by to obtain the required part. However, if this is still not possible, then the part will be ordered and dispatched via by-box (business delivery service) to the engineer overnight. We aim for all engineers to carry a complete car stock and this is updated daily.

Midshire provides our customers with monthly service reports throughout the contract, at no additional cost, covering: machine uptime, the number of service calls, elapsed time before engineer is on site and number of copies per machine.
