I wrote a blog post a few months ago about the new managed print service coming to the University of Southampton, and left it with a promise of a later update about pricing. I’m pleased to say that this is that update, and it is all good news!

Over the past year the Students’ Union have been working hard to improve the printing experience across the University of Southampton. As I mentioned previously the University recently went out to tender for a new Managed Print Service provider – a process which I have been involved in throughout the past 12 months.

Hello everyone! For those who don’t know me, my name is Samuel Dedman and I’m VP Education at the Students’ Union. During my election campaign for this role I made a commitment to look into printing and printing costs across the University of Southampton, and with the start of term fast approaching I thought it was worth doing a bit of an update.
