Premier Insurance has been providing insurance products to its clients since 1983. Until a few years ago, the business operated as a one-man band. That was until Anik Islam took the reins, with an ambition to “shoot for the stars.” Growth is rapid, with Premier Insurance now a leading UK intermediary insurance provider, with little sign of slowing down.

Resources need to meet demand

Resources need to meet demand

“Some of our printers didn’t connect wirelessly and we wanted to make things seamless, without having to deal with hazardous wires everywhere. On top of this was the problem with ink yield, we were constantly wasting time reordering expensive cartridges and refilling paper,” explains Anik.

Their existing printers only worked with standard office paper and the print quality was proving average at best.

Canon solution

Anik undertook a lot of research to try and find a solution that met their diverse needs: high productivity, connectivity, high yields and print flexibility.

“WHEN WE DISCOVERED THE CANON PIXMA G SERIES, IT SEEMED LIKE IT COULD ANSWER ALL OUR PROBLEMS,”

says Anik.

The PIXMA G Series incorporates an intuitive LCD user interface, is equipped with a 350- sheet capacity and is capable of automatic double sided printing – ideal for Premier Insurance’s busy office environment. While the ethernet capabilities enable high-speed secure connections across the local office network.

Crucially, the Canon PIXMA G Series employs refillable high yield ink tanks which ensure non-stop productivity at a lower cost than comparable printers. This means up to 18,000 pages can be printed from just 3 black ink bottles which has made a transformative difference, as Anik highlights.

IT’S COMPLETELY STREAMLINED THE ADMINISTRATION SIDE OF THE BUSINESS. WE HAVE NO INTERRUPTIONS AND THE YIELDS ARE SO HIGH. WE’RE NOT CONSTANTLY ORDERING INK SO WE’RE KEEPING COSTS DOWN AND THE INK’S EASILY REFILLABLE.

The PIXMA G Series handles a diverse range of media – plain paper, envelopes, card and photo paper in sizes ranging from 3.5 inch up to A4. And it also features a 2-way paper feed which means envelopes can be accommodated in the rear feed while plain paper is catered for in the front cassette. So, there’s no need to swap between the two, saving valuable time throughout the day.

The black pigment ink is ideal for printing professional business documents at low cost, while the high-quality dye-based colour inks are perfectly suited to customer-facing collateral.

These powerful new capabilities have helped push Premier Insurance’s business to a different level. Certificates, marketing materials and envelopes are now all printed in supreme quality using the PIXMA G Series printer and incorporate a bold, new Premier Insurance brand identity.

Cloud capabilities have proved to be a winner too. Using the handy Canon PRINT app, the Canon PIXMA Cloud Link allows printing from anywhere in the world via an internet connection. In fact, it’s possible to print remotely from cloud accounts such as Google Drive, Dropbox or Evernote, so cloud services can be easily integrated into existing workflow to allow seamless integration between remote and office-based staff.

UK expansion with the PIXMA G Series

Premier Insurance has equally bold plans moving forwards, recognising the strategic advantages of having physical locations to support its customers throughout the UK. Anik is adamant that each of these locations will include its own PIXMA G6050.

Without question, the Canon PIXMA G Series is now an indispensable member of the Premier Insurance team.
