Inside P.M. Olsen

Multiple solutions - one brand

P.M. Olsen has a large customer base and aftermarket and prints a lot on a daily basis, so it’s important for the company to know the price of its printing. This information is easily accessible with the Brother MPS solution. At the same time, it ensures that the car dealership automatically receives printer consumables before it runs out. So not only does P.M. Olsen maintain a better overview of its costs, the company no longer needs to think about purchasing consumables or holding them in stock.

“We chose a single brand overall because we value having long-term relationships. We’ve known Connie at Brother for many years, which is why we chose Brother for our printing and scanning as well as for our tyre labelling solution.”

Tonny Rasmussen, CFO, P.M. Olsen

Auto Oy has now been using the label printer for two seasons, the summer and winter tyre season, and it has worked well. O.K. Auto Oy recommends the solution to others too.

Alasen Rakennus

Smart printing at construction site makes work procedure easier

Alasen Rakennus is a Finnish construction company that was looking for solutions to enhance the work procedure and share information in a smarter way at the construction site. The number of printouts was reduced by introducing a Brother A3 color inkjet printer, which supports cloud services.

Blueprints and working instructions are now stored in a cloud service, and printed only on demand. Brother's automatic supply deliveries also help the workers as they only have to focus on their tasks as work is never paused due to empty ink cartridges.

"We are able to focus on our own work, because the printer will take care of itself and order the supplies automatically", says Ville Niinimäki, Work Manager, Alasen Rakennus Ltd.
