Tramas+ relies on Brother to optimize its printing processes

The Tramas+ chain has chosen Brother technology to optimize printing processes in all its stores. Through digital printing solutions, the Spanish chain specialized in the distribution of textile products for the home, has installed a multifunction ink printer MFC-J5945DW in each of the more than 160 stores it has distributed between Spain, Italy and Portugal.

Given its rapid expansion in other European markets, Tramas+ needed a printing solution that would offer international coverage, with a compact design that would adapt to the reduced size of the store’s back office, allowing it to print posters and scan documents in all its establishments, and also offer 24/7 support to resolve any incident.

Thanks to the cloud-based Managed Printing Services contract that accompanied the deployment of the solution, Tramas+ has achieved significant cost savings, of up to 22% over the previous solution, which has been easily measured thanks to the fact that they periodically receive reports on the costs of each store. Likewise, incidents have decreased by 28% – standing at just 2% – as a result of the fact that they are communicated automatically to be resolved quickly. On the other hand, the supply of consumables has been automated so that stores do not have to spend time on this task, increasing the level of productivity of their employees.

Brother’s technology has also enabled Tramas+ improve the printing of the posters in each of its stores, that they can now do it in a flexible, independent and faster way, which increases the productivity of their employees and reduces waiting times. In addition, the implementation of the equipment has been very fast and simple, thus helping to ensure that the business is not affected by periods of inactivity. In just a month and a half, the workers at the Tramas+ stores were already operating without problems.
