The culmination of a number of schemes let by Digital Technology Services to reduce the amount of printing done by staff and students at Sheffield Hallam University.
Projects include the roll out of MFD devices in place of standalone machines, the introduction of 'select and release' printing to reduce accidental and error printing, the development of a 'Print Green' function to reduce the size of pages as appropriate, a move to online assignment submissions and engagement and communications techniques.
The benefit of these projects has been substantial with £18,468 saved through Select and Release alone, and a total reduction in pages printed in the faculties of 2.35 million (12.4%); this represents a stack of pages equivalent to over one and a half times the height of the London Eye.
Top 3 learnings:
1 Engage and communicate carefully and continually throughout the project - make instructions clear and listen to feedback.
2 Spell out the impact and give it high visibility to demonstrate the reasons for change.
3 The right support at the right time helps people adjust quickly.
