Retail Inkjet Solutions (RIS), in partnership with Boulanger, has announced a new pilot program of its ink cartridge refill service at several Boulanger retail stores.
Over time, all customers of Boulanger, who specialise in home appliances and multimedia equipment, including personal and office printers, will be able to leave their empty inkjet cartridges at the Ink Bar of their local Boulanger store. While they do their shopping, a Boulanger expert advisor will refill the cartridges using the RIS InkCenter machine, which guarantees high-quality refilling, far cheaper than buying a new cartridge. As part of this new, innovative partnership, “Ink Bars” have already opened at the following Boulanger stores: Gennevilliers, Lyon, Noyelles-Godault, Toulouse, and Toulon.
“Value for money and product quality are very important for all consumers. The RIS-powered ink cartridge refill solution delivers exceptional quality ink, much more affordably”, said David Lenny, President and CEO at RIS. “It’s also great for the environment if you refill your own empty cartridges rather than disposing of plastics after only one use”, he continued. “Boulanger has a reputation for offering “the best” in terms of new technologies and services. This opportunity to expand the RIS network in Europe will be an ideal addition to the wide range of Boulanger services”.
Vincent Hormovitis, Vice President Sales & Business Development at RIS, added: “We at RIS are delighted to join forces with Boulanger to launch the ink cartridge refill service. Their management team is passionate about offering customers unbeatable added value. As the prices of branded inkjet cartridges are continuously increasing, our refill service value proposition becomes even more compelling. We are confident that ink cartridge refilling will serve Boulanger customers very well and will expand into other locations”.
“We are delighted to enable our customers to test this affordable, 100 percent compatible, ecological and fast ink service. We are also confident that this service perfectly meets our customers’ needs”, said Marion Lelièvre, Service Offer Director at Boulanger. “This new service, offered in-store by our expert advisor teams, reduces plastic waste and supplements the wide range of services available to support our customers on a daily basis.”
