Pamela O’Leary, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at South Shore Savings Bank was aware of what Managed Print Services could do to assist in streamlining communication processes, reduce the amount of paper generated and improve document generation needs; as such she sought a partner to assist the Bank in achieving those goals.
South Shore Savings Bank partnered with Bay Copy, the area’s premier provider of digital document solutions, to create a Managed Print Services program to meet the Bank’s document solutions needs.
South Shore Savings Bank worked with Bay Copy based on the Bank’s desire to address printing and copying issues throughout its 14 locations. Bay Copy assisted in the coordination of the varied facets of managed document services – including printers, IT services, and consolidated contracts for printers, copiers and facsimile machines – ultimately providing a Managed Print Services solution for the Bank that reduced the number of office equipment from 140 to 47 units.
Managed Print Services, a fast growing trend in the document solutions industry, looks at per-page cost as the “bottom line” in contrast to the final price point of office equipment.
South Shore Savings Bank has not only experienced lower operating costs as a result of the Managed Print Services program, but has also seen a significant reduction in the amount of paper usage – an environmentally friendly bonus.
“In addition to cost reductions, this program has helped us to provide the highest caliber of service to our customers,” said O’Leary. “Our equipment maintains a large stamp of security, ensuring that customer information remains protected and confidential.”

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome South Shore Savings Bank has realized through their Managed Print Services program,” said Ray Belanger, CEO of Bay Copy. “The potential overall savings for the Bank could be significant;
