  • We have worked with ASL on a number of projects, the most recent being the introduction of a suite of printers. ASL has a great team, led by the affable Trevor Pearce, who provides advice, knowledge and direction. All the projects they have supplied and implemented have been a total success and contributed to making the business more efficient and cost effective in the field of IT.

    Paul Davies Managing Director, Racoon International
  • As with any education budget cost reduction is always a high priority and our levels of expenditure and wastage on printing were high. ASL’s software and hardware solutions have allowed BEMAT to track and manage print activity, saving money and increasing efficiency. ASL’s sales and service support is fantastic and they have gone to great efforts to understand our needs and find us the very best solution for our print needs.

    Chris Earp BEMAT - ICT Strategic Operations Manager
  • With the current financial climate dictating the expansion of our business we investigated methods of cost saving and our printing costs were considerable and worthy of change. I have found ASL to be very accommodating and with a good backup team for the supply of consumable items and maintaining the eighty eight devices we currently have, we have established a good working relationship. Thank you ASL.

    Derek Hine Group IT Development Manager, Briggs & Forrester Group
  • As a direct result of their performance and ability to reduce our printing costs early in 2011, ASL were awarded a 5 year Printer plan contract by EMG. Not only were they able to demonstrate that they have the ability and expertise to monitor our printers, ensure downtime was kept to a minimum, install equipment with proven reliability they were also able to be competitively priced against their competitors.

    Greg O’Gorman Group IT Director, EMG Motor Group
  • ASL enabled us to understand our true document work-flow & to adapt our working practises in a measure way to deliver our goal of a fully integrated, cost effective, managed print environment.

    Neil Bullock Head of ICT and Risk Services, Festival Housing
  • We went to market to benchmark the pricing from ASL and found their pricing to be keen and competitive, so much so that we believe we are saving tens of thousands of pounds against a non-MPS type of arrangement like we used to have.
