British independent office technology supplier Altodigital has strengthened its partnership with Premier League football club Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The three-year contract will see Altodigital manage all of the club’s print systems, including the supply and maintenance of Wolves’ Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C500 series devices, Wolves’ official website relayed.

The West Midlands-based team, currently sitting seventh in the Premier League, is just one of the many high-profile sports clubs on Altodigital’s roster, which also include fellow top flight outfits Arsenal and Huddersfield Town, as well as Glamorgan County Cricket Club and Cardiff Devils ice hockey team.

“Our partnership with Wolves goes back 10 years, so it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to renew the contract,” said Altodigital’s Tim Hubbard. “I believe our success with the club is not just about the equipment we provide, but the service. The club can always count on us to deliver.”

“Under the new contract we’ll be installing Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series devices at Molineux and the club’s training facilities at Compton Park,” Hubbard continued. “Canon UK & Ireland is a world-leading innovator and provider of imaging and IT solutions for offices and its brand is among the best, which is why it’s such a fitting partner for Wolves. Additionally, a key part of the club’s requirement is to become more environmentally friendly, including reducing waste. Staff will now have to use their door key cards to release print jobs, meaning no more carte blanche printing and significantly less waste.”

Laurie Dalrymple, Wolves’ Managing Director, said the club were “delighted to continue our partnership with Altodigital as we’ve been very happy with its service over the past decade. The club expects the best in everything we do, on and off the field, so there’s a pressure on our partners and suppliers to meet certain expectations, and Altodigital certainly does that.”

 “We’re proud to be working alongside Altodigital on its ongoing partnership with Wolverhampton Wanderers,” Canon UK & Ireland’s Director of B2B Indirect Sales, James Pittick, added. “The club will benefit from our range of imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series devices together with the security functions of our uniFLOW system. This system will provide one on-premise integrated software solution that will manage all printing and scanning workflows and devices.”

Altodigital, which launched in 1987, provides a range of products and services, including print, document management, and office supplies, for businesses across the UK. It has 12 offices across the country, and its clients operate primarily within the corporate, housing, healthcare, government, legal and education sectors.
