Miller Homes, a UK-based housebuilder, has installed seven HP Pagewide XL 5000 printer and folder solutions across its network of offices.
Miller Homes is a national housebuilder which has built over 100,000 homes in its 80-year history. The business’s need to print large format technical documents, such as house designs and development plans, means it requires and runs in-house large format print rooms to meet the printing demands of all its departments.
The previous print solution meant that teams were waiting 15-20 minutes for their old printer to even warm up. As a result, the business suffered considerable downtime, causing bottlenecks in its commercial and technical teams. Once the incumbent technology had reached the end of its contract, Miller Homes researched all available large format solutions on the market, opting for HP’s Pagewide XL 5000 printer and folder solutions:
“The HP Pagewide XL has made my life easier. The consistency and reduced downtime compared to our previous supplier’s models are a big bonus to us in IT,” said Ross Craik, Head of Service at Miller Homes. “In addition, the speed of warm-up being pretty much instantaneous, combined with the print speed, has meant that production has never been easier and all departments are reaping the rewards.”
The HP Pagewide XL printer range is driving significant efficiencies and increased productivity for HP customer’s, it’s not just about the speed of print but the complete workflow from job submission through HP SmartStream to the integrated folding solution. For Miller Homes, the installation of the HP Pagewide XL has resulted in huge benefits across the organisation, with increased productivity and consistency, less downtime and a significant reduction in costs.
“After an evaluation of the various solutions in the market we choose HP based on the technical capabilities of the device and its superior running costs”, continued Ross Craik.” “Since we have installed the HP Pagewide XL solution it has had a positive effect on a number of areas in the business, with other departments now printing directly using the HP SmartStream software which wasn’t possible before with our old solution.”
