British Steel partners with Canon to transform its IT solutions

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 3 May 2017 – Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, has today announced that British Steel, manufacturer of high-quality steel products, has implemented Canon’s Managed Print Services to further improve efficiency and tackle a decentralised print system. This move is part of British Steel’s wider business transformation as it modernises the way it works with customers.

The company had previously been using a 10 year old legacy IT system across its 20 sites which it had inherited. It required a reliable print infrastructure to ensure deliveries weren’t delayed due to the correct documentation not being available, and to ensure important documents, such as invoices, were processed on time. British Steel has since been updating its IT infrastructure to enable its print services to be fit for purpose, and support the organisation in being more environmentally conscious.

Andrew Grossett, IT Director at British Steel said, “Through our partnership with Canon, we have carried out a detailed survey of the print estate leading to an entire technology refresh and the implementation of reliable new solutions, with excellent support services in place. The technology Canon can provide, such as my print anywhere printing and increased access for mobile users, has been a real differentiator and will no doubt transform the way we work across the business.”

Dominic Fahy, Head of AEC and Manufacturing at Canon UK said, “We understand the pressures manufacturers face to ensure consistent performance in a highly competitive marketplace. We are delighted that Canon’s services will help British Steel work more efficiently, cost effectively and reliably, to deliver a high-quality service to its customers. We’re looking forward to working closely with them to help grow and transform their business into the future.”
