Local Government and Public Sector

United Carlton has won, and consistently kept, numerous OJEU tendering contracts by guaranteeing high quality products, delivered and maintained with a faultless service. We save big organisations considerable amounts of time, money and resources, whilst also reducing their environmental impact and waste production.

We can also help you to preserve the security and confidentiality of sensitive documents, through the implementation of software solutions which require user authentication to claim printed documents. Our print software solutions employ “follow-me” protocols which allow printed jobs to be claimed from any printer on the network. The documents are held on the print server until the user has provided their credentials – this can be integrated with existing organisational security measure such as staff ID of door entry cards or fobs, or biometric fingerprint readers. These measures ensure the integrity of sensitive information and can help to prevent accidental or malicious data loss.

Public Sector FAQs

United Carlton’s specialist consultants are happy to guide you through the process of identifying the best public sector-focused  solutions to meet your requirements. We’ve included a few of our most frequently asked questions as this may provide some insight for you. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Will United Carlton's solutions integrate smoothly with our existing security measures?

Yes. We understand that the integrity of your confidential data is a key consideration for local authorities and government entities due to the ramifications of a data leak. We can implement secure document archival solutions which will encrypt sensitive material, and integrate our systems around your existing authentication methods, whether that is password, ID card, door entry fob or biometric, to ensure that only authorised staff have access to, and can print, critical information.

How will United Carlton help us to manage our environmental obligations?

United Carlton only work with equipment suppliers who have demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainable manufacturing processes, and the production of eco-friendly devices with low running costs. Many of our devices are manufactured to be carbon-neutral for the first five years, or equivalent print count, of the device's life. Alongside that, our bespoke software controls have been repeatedly proven to significantly reduce resource consumption and wastage, by making sure that accidental duplicate and unwanted / unclaimed documents are never printed. We also run a successful recycling scheme for spent toner cartridges, in partnership with eReco, and are committed to either reconditioning, recycling or WEEE-compliant disposal of aged equipment.

Follow-me printing

One of the key features of our service, is the ability to send a print job to any printer on the same network.
For convenience the print can be collected from any printer, either the closest, one that isn’t busy, or one which meets specific quality or finishing requirements.
For confidentiality the print can only be collected by the person who requested it, via various authentication methods.
For cost control the print can be remotely cancelled if no longer required and will not be printed unless claimed.
