Charter schools provide a creative and personalized educational environment, and need the right equipment to promote their unique system to current and prospective students. But the right promotion starts with a proper advertising and marketing strategy, which is why efficient technology is crucial for the school’s success. 

The Problem Behind Printing Large Documents

Charter School for Applied Technologies in Buffalo, New York prepares students for sustaining careers by integrating career exploration and a lifelong learning culture. The school recently revamped its marketing strategy to include event planning and promotion and needed a new printer to improve its workflow. That’s when they turned to United Business Systems. 

Every time the school needed a document larger than 12” x 18”, the team was forced to outsource posters, banners, signs and pop-ups. In addition to paying for printing, the team had to factor in shipping costs and wait times for the materials to arrive. Printing became an inconvenience and held them back from reaching their full marketing capabilities. 

How UBS Found the Perfect Solution

UBS presented the school with in-house printing options that allowed teachers more autonomy to be creative and resourceful. By creating a more sustainable workflow, administration was able to put more focus on student engagement and no longer had to worry about how or where they’d print. Teachers had immediate access to color printing and quick production times, and were able to create on a whim.

The communications department decided the school needed a wide format printer to produce banners, flyers, and other documents to support event promotions. UBS found the right device.
