Hamp Academy

Hamp Academy (TPM)

Our Total Print Management solution helps customers concentrate on what they do best, leaving us to manage their print/copy/scan solutions.

The situation

Hamp Academy is a popular and rapidly expanding junior school that serves the community of Hamp to the south of Bridgwater. 

The school copying/print facilities had been built up over many years. We had never taken into consideration the overall cost of managing these devices, which had significantly increased our overheads.

I approached several companies (including SDS) to see if they could assist using their Total Print Management (TPM) concept. After meeting several companies and obtaining quotes on our current usage it became clear that SDS had the best package on offer for our needs.

The SDS solution

SDS’s TPM package helps Hamp Academy reduce costs and look after the maintenance and management of our print/copy/scan facilities.

SDS provide rapid, responsive support services across all the devices. They provide transparent pricing inclusive of toner/parts and maintenance.

The long-term benefits

SDS also provided us with printing software that enabled us to introduce printing rules to eliminate wastage and monitor individual staff usage for the first time. This has had an instant impact on reducing wastage.


We would recommend any school to speak with SDS about their TPM support, as this solution has really helped Hamp Academy staff to focus on their primary concern of teaching and learning.
