Les Deux Hémisphères is a French business consulting and services organisation based in the center of Paris. They provide access to several facilities including independent meeting spaces, coworking spaces, live studios, and other workspaces.
Most of the clientele at Les Deux Hémisphères are digital natives. Consequently, they almost never print. So when printing does occur, they need to be able to track it.
When searching for print management software, Les Deux Hémisphères Director Stéphanie Bertina Minel needed a simpler solution than what was offered by traditional on-premise setups.
Like many SMBs, Les Deux Hémisphères didn’t have a dedicated IT person. They needed an uncomplicated print enablement solution that could reduce their carbon footprint and also suited their coworking spaces’ cloud-native infrastructure.
Desire to reduce printing carbon footprint without an IT team
Les Deux Hémisphères' workspaces don’t print a lot, and they like it that way. In fact, with as little printing as they do, they want to ensure it stays like that and then some. But with users coming and going, even for their low print volumes, they still needed a print management tool.
Digital cloud natives, a large MFP or service contract for their printing was simply unrealistic. With just one central printer at a single location on one VLAN, along with other IoT devices, they wanted to reduce their printing’s carbon footprint without being shackled to hardware.
Stéphanie needed a simple print enablement tool which suited her business’s existing cloud-native and IoT infrastructure. It also needed to be installed and configured without an IT team.
