A local provider Mottram Financial Services, chartered financial planners based in Manchester, has kept things local by choosing Stockport’s Woodbank Office Solutions as its new print management provider. When reviewing its existing print solution, Peter Rogan, Chartered Financial Planner at Mottram Financial Services, searched for a supplier close to home. Before reaching out directly to Woodbank, he contacted an existing customer, Chafes Hague Lambert Solicitors, who were very complimentary of the support they receive. “It’s very important for us to support local businesses, so it’s natural for us to find a local supplier whenever there’s an opportunity,” Rogan said. “After speaking to Chafes, I knew I had to give Woodbank a call. Woodbank has now helped us get the right machines for our requirements and the installation was like lightning.” Woodbank has upgraded Mottram’s Konica Minolta printer to fit with its existing system and will now be the company’s onestop shop for office print equipment. As part of the service, Mottram will get direct, local support from Account Manager, Josh Kinder, and Woodbank’s experienced in-house customer service and technical support team.
