Martineau Rolls out Kappris
Martineau plans to reduce the amount they print by 50% from Outlook by rolling out Kutana’s Kappris software.
"We will now see a significant reduction in paper and print output without a reduction in productivity"
With email printing typically taking up 20% of a firms print output, reducing this is a major concern for organisations as they look to cut costs.
Kappris does just this by allowing users to control how they print from Outlook, and has been used by a number of law firms since its launch two years ago. Kappris is now being utilised by one of the UK’s leading independent law firms, Martineau, who use iManage as their document management system and run Windows 7 so integration and compatibility was a key factor. Dean Hill-Jowett, IT Director, has been very happy with how it has improved the way the firm prints from email.
‘We have been using the Outlook plug-in for a few months now and it has introduced new ways of printing for our users.
I have spent the last four years looking for an answer to the question of how to print only the first page of an email. When I saw Kappris it was a revelation and worked far better than I expected by printing emails rather than pages.
He has also been pleased with the cross-application compatibility and cost savings the driver has begun to realise.
‘The firm has seen a reduction in the amount we print from Outlook, but these savings have not just been restricted to email printing.
A fantastic feature is that it works across our suite of applications – from Microsoft Office to Adobe so it’s very easy for our users. The result is that we will now see a significant reduction in paper and print output without a reduction in productivity. As an early adopter of the windows 7 version I have been impressed with the speed at which changes are made and how receptive Kutana are as a business to our particular needs. Whilst it is still early days I expect to reduce the printing of emails by at least 50% which will more than pay for the software itself. Initial feedback from lawyers and support staff is positive. It has changed the way our users print giving them greater control and will help the firm to realise significant reductions in print output.’
