British charity, London’s Air Ambulance, has signed a deal with print solutions specialist, Workflow Group, to upgrade the printing capability in its central London headquarters with a suite of new Xerox products. The charity will use the new connected suite in the creation of fundraising and marketing materials to help double its income and increase awareness of its charity status over the next five years.

The charity, which delivers a senior doctor-paramedic team to serious trauma emergencies across London, providing lifesaving pre-hospital treatment to approximately five critically-injured patients every day, has invested in a Xerox AltaLink C8055 (including Booklet Maker Finisher) and two Xerox C405 colour multifunction printers.

Along with a need for greater efficiency and higher-quality output, security was one of the key considerations behind the upgrade. Xerox devices are secure by design, requiring card authentication before releasing print jobs. This ensures sensitive information is protected and eliminates print wastage, creating cost savings and helping reduce the charity’s environmental footprint.

Charles Newitt, deputy CEO of London’s Air Ambulance said, “We had a high level of interest from companies who wanted to work with us, with a very competitive tendering process. Workflow Group stood out for understanding our organisation and requirements, and sharing our passion for the service we provide. We look forward to working with Workflow Group to help us achieve our ambitious strategic objectives.”

In addition to installation and training on the devices, the three-year deal will see Workflow Group providing maintenance and service support. This includes automated monitoring and reporting capabilities to ensure any issues are dealt with effectively and quickly.

“We welcome the opportunity to work in partnership with London’s Air Ambulance and assist such an amazing charity.” said Chris Pollard, director, Workflow Group.

“Given the nature of the service London’s Air Ambulance provides, it is vital to keep its print operations as streamlined as possible so it can focus its attention and budget where it matters most.” said Carlo Longhi, director and general manager, indirect channels UK and Ireland, Xerox. “With their connectivity and easy-to-use functionality, we’re confident our devices can deliver just that.”
