An Industry Leader in Education

Our experience in providing Education with quality, reliable and cost effective print solutions gives us the knowledge and skills needed to recommend and implement the right solution at the right price.

Some Schools Buy Their Equipment

Sheridan’s first contract with 4 Office started in 2012 and the same fleet of equipment is still performing well today —three years after their payments ceased! 

Not only did the college reduce their environmental footprint and achieve their sustainability goals, they also cut their costs by 50% with the help of 4 Office & PaperCut

Many more schools opt to lease their equipment

And with excellent service throughout the contract, many customers renew and get many more years out of their equipment (not to mention very significant savings on subsequent renewal years).  Colleges like Sheridan and Centennial have also opted for PaperCut software to further cut down on their print costs and reduce their environmental footprint.

Others source through the OECM

Mohawk College saved themselves a lot of time, trouble and hassle by opting for the OECM’s “Quick Quote” process. 

At 4 Office, we’re proud to say we are the only independent reseller recognized by the OECM for both A3 (11×17) and A4 (8 ½ x 14) capable multifunctional copiers – both Kyocera and Lexmark.

Cost Effective Print Solutions For Education

Managed print solutions are designed to save our education clients time, frustration, overhead costs and most importantly money. After deploying your fleet of equipment, we focus on servicing that equipment for maximum uptime and longevity into the future (up to 8 years), where as other suppliers will push for a fleet refresh every 4 – 5 years.

All Maintenance and Supplies Included

At 4 Office, we provide all service and all supplies – if there’s a problem, we’ll guarantee within 4 hours it’s fixed quickly and easily through our dedicated service centre and technicians located throughout Ontario. Included in our plan, you can automate your ordering of supplies, automate your meter readings and get access to dedicated support and printer management services. We even provide loaners in case mission critical equipment goes down in off hours.

Lower Your Costs & Your Environmental Footprint

Saving money and saving the environment go hand in hand as by making your equipment last longer we also help reduce your environmental footprint. In addition to this, a well design managed print project can help organizations save significantly on electricity as well.

In our journey to ever-greater sustainability, we continually look for new & innovative ways to further reduce our  environmental impact, as well as that of our customers. Our case study with Sheridan college illustrates the remarkable savings that can occur with an Managed Print Solution, where paper waste was reduced by an average of 30% and yearly energy consumption from print devices reduced by over 50%.

Help preserve the environment & save money with an 8 year service guarantee
