Colchester Royal Grammar School (CRGS) is a venerable institution founded in 1206 AD. Now a school for boys aged 11 to 18 (with girls in the Sixth Form), it’s committed to excellence by blending traditional values with a forward-looking approach.
However, CRGS didn’t need to gaze far into the future to see their printing was a problem. Costs were skyrocketing, and they had no visibility on who was printing what, and to what volumes.
They needed print management with a pedigree to match their own.
The introduction of PaperCut slashed student paper waste by tenfold

No quotas or visibility = unaccounted-for printing and spiraling costs
With nearly 1,000 students and staff at CRGS, it's easy to see how print costs could spiral out of control. A frustrated IT department helmed by IT Manager, Chris Hill, began the search for a solution to control student printing, and help the faculty manage their own printing costs.
In addition to providing transparency around printing, Chris was also after a solution both flexible and customizable. That way, CRGS could differentiate between different printing groups and provide tailored options.
So when he landed on PaperCut – and had it up and running with student quotas in just four hours – he knew he was onto a winner. CRGS had found their print management solution in shining armor.
