Replacement printer



Can anyone recommend a reliable/robust printer ?

We have been MSP users since 1/4/2016 and find our existing printer struggles to print documents some of the time, not all the time strangely!! I think it would be a good idea to get a new one and keep current as a back up.

Hi Sandra


We have a  DataSharp combined copier, printer, scanner and fax, with PaperCut software, which tracks who uses what on the printer and provides costs of the printer by user.  This has helped us not only save money on printing costs, after 2 years its never broken down and we've saved a shed load in costs.


We used a company called Buyers Buddy, who got us out of the existing contracts we were under and got us an excellet deal, if you are interested, please contact:-

All the best

We have stayed with HP. HP602 (603) . Most reliable printer we have owned double sized output hopper.

H3015 is a standard workhorse for normal depts. Also never breakdown.


You can tell if printer are reliable if the printer service company throw in the printer contract for free.

We only see the engineers for the Canon MFD's we have.

Has anyone programmed a Canon MFD for OpenGI  by the way?

    • @Philr may be able to help - he is the User Group IPID man!
    • Hi just found this forum    We updated from 5.2.1  to 5.82  how many of you are using 5.82 and how you finding it?  Also how are you getting on with IPID docs?  I finding the PDf don't leave the print queue   Pete  
    • Also - once confirmed and tested, make sure you can access the service outside of your local network    If it cant be connected likely it is a firewall / port issue that you will need your IT / Infrastructure team to allow access to   That can be a little painful too ...   M
    • Creditline + is really good, being able to process payment/allocate to OGI in one process is the main advantage to other solutions.   In a previous life we even linked it to our phone system to fully cover PCI DSS compliance (client keyed in cc number so we did not have to pause record) - but that was fairy expensive to do at the time.   You will get the odd blip when payment has gone through but not allocated to OGI but you will have access to an online portal to check payments received if get one which has supposedly failed.
    • We currently use the Worldpay online card payment facility which is becoming more and more expensive.   We are exploring other avenues available including Open GI's own offering (I believe Creditline Plus).   Can anyone that is using the Open Gi offering please give us any feedback.   Also anyone using an outsourced facility other than Worldpay, who do you use?   Thanks :-)
