Fax server upgrade offers cost savings to CWRU

In the next couple of months, approximately 200, multifunctional printers with fax capabilities will be upgraded to a newer model. The new machines will be connected directly to the Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) network, providing tremendous cost savings by eliminating the need for fax boards and phone lines.

As part of the "Cost-Per-Copy" Program, the implementation costs include the new machine, toner and full maintenance/repair services. CWRU is billed on a per copy basis which, in most cases, is much less than printing to desktop printers.

The vendor selected to assist with this campus-wide initiative, "Meritech", will be contacting each department involved with the undertaking to schedule convenient dates and times for the upgrade. Meritech also is providing trained personnel to ensure the transition from the older machines to the new models goes as smoothly as possible and that university staff members are educated and comfortable with the overall process.

Please do not hesitate to contact Beth Nochomovitz, director of auxiliary services, at with any questions or feedback. People may also contact John DeFranco with Meritech at with questions regarding the current or new machines. The target timeframe for completion of the upgrade process is the end of May.
