Critical IT infrastructure company BAIP developed a printing service technology which will simplify the essential daily automated printing process and ensure business continuity throughout the year for the company Palink that manages the retail chain IKI. Palink trusted BAIP with long-term management and maintenance services contract.
Fully managed printing service was implemented at Palink, UAB. The service is comprised of the most suitable equipment and consumables selection, supply and installation, and full responsibility for continuous process implementation. The solution, developed with the latest generation inkjet colour HP printers ensures printing speed of 70 copies per minute and extremely low price per print. The technical parameters of HP printers were tested, validated and adjudicated live by Guinness World Records.
“The decision of Palink to transfer their critically important automated process to be managed and maintained by BAIP reflects todays’ market needs, when more and more companies and organisations outsource their printing services”, – said Gytis Umantas, the CEO of BAIP.
“Fully managed printing service provides many benefits: printing service can be individually integrated into the clients’ existing process, it gives assurance and security that important, critical and automated process will be uninterrupted and smooth while BAIP specialists take care of equipment maintenance, repair and consumables supply in accordance to remotely in advance received reports on the status of client’s devices on site”, – described Mr. Umantas.

BAIP took over the responsibility to maintain and ensure the working capacity of all printing devices, supply consumables and printing ink, and maintain a reserve of spare parts.
