Hyster-Yale are one of world’s leading manufacturers and providers of a comprehensive line of lift trucks and aftermarket parts with over 7900 employees globally.
Hyster-Yale were seeking a flexible technology partner that could assist with smoothly transitioning from their existing IT provider to a more reliable and cost-effective platform. They were using un-reliable, high costing printers, a slow internet link with limited capacity and a contract with no room to change to modern technology.
Hyster-Yale engaged AMPS to consult and review their current contracts, to propose a solution that encumbered a wide range of fit-for purpose technology, aligned to their business needs. This meant reviewing all existing, multiple technology contracts and consolidating into one new agreement, with a single monthly invoice. Data &Telecommunications upgrade delivered a new 100/100Mb Business Grade fibre connection as well as including 30 new SIP voice trunks to ensure a reliable platform with full redundancy to Hyster-Yale’s Milperra Offices. Additionally, as part of the solution, AMPS configured secure MPLS routing between Hyster-Yale’s regional HQ in Singapore and Australia. Printer Consolidation was key to reducing overall cost while improving management of the entire printer and copier fleet at Hyster-Yale. Multiple desktop printers with high costing toners, inefficient print queues with limited security and no management tools in place proved challenging. The new, Best-of-Breed fleet of fully managed Samsung and Fuji-Xerox hardware ensured high speed and availability with cost-effective printing and scanning. AMPS-connect management software was implemented allowing us to manage the Hyster-Yale fleet in real time, with a 4-hour SLA, auto-toner replenishment, and paper supply under one cost per page. Smart Business tools were also implemented as part of the overall technology solution. Intuitive, 75-inch smart screens improved the meeting and conference room experience, while Logitech conference equipment ensured Hyster-Yale had all the tools for a truly unified meeting facility. A Customised Visitor Management solution was also included with automated staff notifications, photo registration, induction acceptance forms and printed photo visitor labels. The integrated software with I-Pad interface, ensured a secure reception desk, without the need of FTE’s, along with visitor tracking and reporting.
