Celebrating over 40 years of serving and supporting education and school boards across Ontario

An Industry Leader in Education

4 Office Automation Ltd. is a leading Canadian supplier of multifunction copiers, printers and money saving document & print applications for the province’s school boards & education sector. We focus on delivering some of the top rated products & award winning managed print solutions at the very best value for our school board customers, allowing more budgets to be diverted to staff and students. Our experience in providing Education with managed print solutions gives us the knowledge and skills needed to recommend and implement the right solution at the right price. 

Halton District School Board

4 Office’s first copier contract with Halton started in 1982! As with all Public Sector accounts, we win on features and price and we aim to renew these accounts with excellent service (renewals that save our clients a fortune). Who says copiers will not last 8 or more years? Even schools whose volume is 5 times higher than the average commercial account know when they source through 4 Office that there will be huge savings down the line when it’s time to renew.

Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board

4 Office began servicing the Wentworth board in the early 90’s and have won an additional four competitive tenders over the years that included the whole of the Hamilton-Wentworth Board. With all of our school board customers today, we offer our Kyocera line which is extremely reliable at higher volumes and has the lowest emission of any high volume copier in the market. When it comes to reliability and safety, there is no better product for the high volume market. And no public sector vendor as committed to customer satisfaction as 4 Office Automation Ltd.

Ottawa-Carleton District School Board

For the past 20 years, 4 Office has been the Ottawa-Carleton’s #1 photocopier supplier. As with all school board accounts, we never hesitate to replace any machine that causes school board staff the slightest problems. Amazing as it may seem, with proper maintenance, our Kyocera line stays as reliable in year 5 as it does in year 1 and this plus (6) great service teams across the province keeps our clients renewing for greater cost savings year after year after year.

Toronto Catholic District School Board

Our first contract with the Toronto Catholic Board started in 2012 and has continued through additional tenders and contract extensions that have saved the board precious funds, that can now be diverted back to teachers, students and other programs. As always, we win our public sector clients on price and retain them on great service.

To all our School Boards, listed or not listed, 4 Office has just one thing to say – Thank You!

Cost Effective Print Solutions For Education

Managed print solutions are designed to save our school board 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

One of the ways we minimize your environmental footprint, by making your equipment last longer. In our journey to ever-greater sustainability, we continually look for new, innovative ways to further reduce our own environmental impact, as well as that of our customers. One of our recent case studies featuring Sheridan college illustrates the remarkable savings that can occur with an Managed Print Solution, with paper waste being reduced by an average of 30% and yearly energy consumption from print devices reduced by over 50%.
