SOS Group Partner With Epson To Offer Heat-Free Printing Technology

Gateshead-based office technology company, SOS Group, is entering into a partnership with Epson for the first time to further increase the choice it can offer its document management clients.

The new partnership sees the addition of Epson’s heat-free business inkjet technology to the SOS Group solutions portfolio, something that will be particularly popular for clients seeking to reduce their energy usage and consumables.

Established in 2002, SOS Group facilitates all business and event requirements, including communications and IT, and specialises in providing copy, print, scan solutions for clients from local start-ups to multi nationals.

Awarded both ISO 9001 and ISO 27001, it has a centralised office on the Team Valley and 18 staff, including specialist engineers servicing accounts nationally from six regional hubs in London, Scotland, the North West, Midlands, South Yorkshire, South West and North East.

George Young, a Director at SOS Group, says: “We work closely with our clients to offer them the very best copy, print, scan solution for every situation, and that means working with all the top brands.

“Unusually for this industry, we don’t subcontract engineers, and this ensures both quality of service and a genuine understanding of our customers’ individual business needs.

“Our team are now fully Epson trained and accredited and looking forward to bringing this unique technology to our clients, giving them the opportunity to achieve significant environmental, productivity and financial benefits by replacing their laser printers with heat-free business inkjet printers.”

Epson’s heat-free inkjet printers offer significant cost-saving and environmental benefits by consuming dramatically less energy than equivalent laser printers, using fewer consumables, producing lower CO2 emissions and requiring less intervention from engineers.

Paul Harland, Account Manager at Epson UK, added: “Epson favours quality over quantity in its reseller network, and the SOS Group’s name and track record speaks for itself within the  managed print industry.

“What’s equally important to us is that Epson partners share our commitment to addressing the increasing demand from businesses to reduce energy consumption, waste, and intervention through their print solutions, and SOS have proven keen environmental advocates in this area. We look forward to what the future holds with this partnership.”
