Toshiba Makes the Grade at New York School District

District's CIO Calculates Dramatic Savings Via Use of Tech Company's Print Fleet

Toshiba America Business Solutions' fleet of e-STUDIOTM multifunction products (MFP) is saving Western New York's Pittsford Central School District (PCSD) 30 percent each year in copying and printing costs says the district's chief information officer.

This savings exceeded the expectation of PCSD CIO Jeff Cimmerer, Ed.D. when the IT executive first sought a vendor capable of providing best-in-class solutions worthy of this high-performing district (both of its high schools consistently rank in the top 100 schools in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report). Satisfying content management needs of the more than 7,000 students, teachers, and administrative staff also required quality equipment.

"Upon receiving clarification about our needs, Toshiba's team developed the most comprehensive and compelling product portfolio to better address our content management needs at a price-point that made sense," PCSD's CIO said. "Toshiba's product, sales and technical teams were all given exceptional references by other organizations. But even more importantly, Toshiba's output management products and services clearly meet and in many cases exceed the lofty benchmark expectations we put into place during the RFP process."

Toshiba's industry-recognized e-STUDIO products are currently in use by all PCSD schools and throughout its central office, curriculum, athletic, transportation, food services, and maintenance departments fulfilling all content management needs while also reducing costs for the school district.

Dr. Cimmerer added, "As a result of working with Toshiba, we have vastly improved securing all print and copy jobs, and now comply fully with our security policy.  It makes sense to keep doing business with a company that follows through on its commitments, and continues to demonstrate its local excellence."
