Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Cuts Print Costs With SpaceTec and IBM System i5
Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust manages four hospitals in the north of England. As with all government-funded hospital trusts, Mid Yorkshire Hospitals must demonstrate that it spends public money as efficiently as possible, and there is considerable political pressure on hospital financial management. The trust needed to demonstrate high levels of administrative efficiency; refresh costly and inflexible print infrastructure, reduce maintenance and hardware costs, introduce greater fault-tolerance. They worked with IBM, REAL Solutions and SpaceTec to implement an IBM System i5 550 running InterForm400, mirrored using MIMIX to an i520; replaced 1,800 outdated printers with just 700 modern laser printers.
