Taking Care of Education N


ewbold College of Higher Education was founded in 1901 to “lead students to learn how to think, and to teach them how to learn anything for themselves”. The College partners with Universities in Germany and USA, offering Undergraduate Programmes in Business Management, Business Studies, Humanities and Theology as well as Post Graduate and Research Programmes in Theology from its Bracknell campus.


Prakash Pilley, ICT Manager at Newbold College says: “Originally we had a combination of printers all over the place. It was hard to track the pages being printed and very difficult to work out the overall cost of our printing. We knew the best option would be multi-functional devices (MFDs) rather than printers and we were particularly keen to source a good, fast MFD capable of quality colour printing and yet environmentally friendly.”


Newbold College installed five KYOCERA MFDs with one set up exclusively for student use and the other four for staff. Students can buy credit on the KYOCERA MFD and SafeCom software ensures that the print costs are tracked for both mono and colour printing. The students just use their Student ID cards and the KYOCERA machine conveniently releases their printing exactly when they want it.


Prakash explains why this Follow-Me printing works so well: “Previously we had a system where people had to type in number codes and that all proved very hectic and rather easy to go wrong when people forgot the correct code to use. Utilising the existing Student ID card on the KYOCERA machines has made things so very much easier for our users.”

KYOCERA devices and their toners means that everything gets sent back to KYOCERA for recycling. Prakash explains: “When the toner goes down to 5% it automatically emails KYOCERA who send replacement toner by next day delivery. This means there is absolutely no effort on the part of the College, which saves us time and storage space. It’s great!”


“The KYOCERA printers have been a real benefit to Newbold College. We do have independent reviews to review our printing and to check if we’re paying too much – I’m delighted to say that our last review was very complimentary about the College and said we’ve made a very well-informed decision.”
