Engineering Firm The Kleingers Group Draws Success from Sharp MFPs

Business Environment Challenges

The Kleingers Group is dedicated to help transform communities through improvements. However, the West Chester, Ohio-based civil engineering and consulting firm needed a transformation of its own to enhance the way it does business with customers.

Relying heavily on printers to provide documents and plans for clients in the fields of building infrastructure, transportation planning, landscape architecture, and other related areas, The Kleingers Group was not satisfied with the equipment it was using. Warm up time was quite long and print speed was too slow for the company’s deadline-driven environment.

In addition, the printers only had single-sided scanning capabilities, which made the task a slow process, and the resolution needed to be higher as well for crisper images. Getting printouts quickly, reliably and of high quality is not a luxury, but a requirement for this type of specialized business. 

“Sharp has done an awesome job as far as providing highly reliable printing services for our employees. Having technology that’s high quality allows our employees to produce very accurate detailed drawings in a short amount of time.”
