PRLog - Aug. 24, 2012 - WARRINGTON, U.K. -- SHARPLES GROUP, the North West’s biggest independent print and copier supplier has broken through the £3 million turnover mark thanks to a growing customer base and on-going investment in the latest document management technology.

Managing Director Mark Brocklehurst said the company’s positive performance during a gruelling double-dip recession, was due to their commitment to enable clients to save money during the current challenging economic conditions.
“It’s all about helping clients make their money go further and providing a document management system that is efficient and effective,” said Mr Brocklehurst speaking from the 30 employee company’s Kingsland Grange, Warrington HQ.
“We developed our Quick View print audit system to help clients identify how much value for money they were getting from their existing document management systems. This is a free service that works out true cost per page. In the majority of cases we are able to offer clients significantly less expensive options.
“Savings of as much as 70 per cent have been achieved by some of our clients although a 30 per cent reduction in costs is the average across the board. However, the bottom line is that our specialists in printing, copying and IT systems are available to use their considerable expertise to evaluate the efficiency and true running cost of business printer fleets.
“As a result Quick View has generated a great deal of new clients for us which has contributed to our financial performance over the last year.”
Mr Brocklehurst said Sharples use of the latest technology in document management provision had also led to an increased demand for their services.
“The document management systems we provide for clients are quite sophisticated and have many valuable add-ons like the toner alert facility. This monitors toner levels in client systems enabling us to provide toner top-ups before they run out.
“That means clients don’t have to worry about toner stocks because Sharples dispatch them automatically. And if client documents management systems break down we have the knowledge and highly trained staff to get them up and running as quickly as possible.
“Putting clients first and investing in highly trained staff, who provide expertise in everything from document management to IT, has obviously had a very positive impact on our financial performance this year and I am delighted with these excellent results.”
