Find Out How AU Small Finance Bank Streamlined Its Printing Requirement
AU Small Finance Bank Limited is a scheduled commercial bank and a Fortune India 500 company. With a talent base of 16,000+ people, it operates over 800+ Banking Touchpoints, serving over 18 lakhs+ consumers in 12 states spanning North, West, and Central India. Within its first three years as a bank, it has amassed a solid net worth of more than 4,200 crores, a strong deposit base of more than 26,000 crores from 14 lakh deposit accounts, and a lending base of more than 31,000 crores.
The 25-year-old company began its banking operations in April 2017 with 300+ branches on the first day. Since then, they have managed their print infrastructure by purchasing printers and other printer-related supplies. But finding the time to manage their organization's IT needs was difficult, and sometimes prohibitively expensive, when they have a limited budget and limited staff.
Mr. Umesh Ajwani, IT Manager of AU Small Finance Bank, has first-hand knowledge of this. “Along with all his primary responsibilities, he had to manage all of his organization's printer requirements across multiple locations. That can almost be a full-time job in and of itself. When he joined AU Small Finance Bank in 2017, he and his team members had to sit for planning and budgeting for their print infrastructure, as well as follow up with multiple vendors for quotations. On top of that, his team members had to be involved in the smallest printer issues.
When a representative from WeP approached Mr. Umesh to talk about the benefit of managed print services that reduce costs and consolidated vendors, then he had WeP’s attention. The WeP management team worked with Umesh and the rest of the AU Small Finance Bank team to evaluate their present print facilities and establish their main objectives, needs, and priorities. Following the evaluation, WeP developed a detailed plan to ensure that the printing infrastructure of the organization continues to operate as planned in the future – all while remaining within budget parameters already specified.
- Dedicated in-house resources to manage their printing requirement. Significantly increased the total cost of ownership (TCO).
- Investing capital for the purchase of printers and supplies.
- Monitoring and following up with multiple vendors for billing and services-related issues were costly.
- All printers were not on the network, which made monitoring of the printers harder leading to a higher downtime for the printers.
- It was difficult to provide support for multiple locations while using a different vendor.
- Implementing secured printing. As it is a mandatory compliance requirement for banks to enable secure printing to secure private data.
- Management of stock and liquidation of the old dead printers through e-waste required filling of returns and auditing.
