Alliance with Status Graphics helps companies select the right printer for the job

Tally, the computer printer specialist, today announced its partnership with Status Graphics, one of the largest suppliers of colour printers and consumables in the UK. The partnership extends the visibility of Tally’s colour laser printer range and its newly launched Spectra*Star consumables into the creative arts and business markets in Greater London. Following Tally’s successful colour laser launch in 2001, Status Graphics will help demonstrate the different colour printing applications in real-time at its London-based showroom.

The partnership aims to help customers through the purchasing process by matching the right printer to the application. Companies interested in buying can bring their own work files for printing, so that a real-time demonstration can be shown. Alternatively Status Graphics can demonstrate different printer models at customer premises.

“Status Graphics’ unique offering is attractive to us, as matching the right printer to the particular application is a key consideration in any printer procurement strategy,” says Tally MD, Robin Edwardes, “By getting customers to bring their own files, we can help to identify their particular printing requirement. It is important for customers to select the right printer for the job, as it can save them thousands of pounds in the long-term”.

As a value-added reseller, Status Graphics will offer installation, colour calibration and Tally’s platinum warranty on its Spectra*Star range of Tektronix compatible consumables. Tally offers resellers full sales and technical training on all its colour products, and employs its own service engineers to provide support in the field.

Status Graphics Managing Director, James Metcalfe says, “Tally offers a level of support that most other printer manufacturers cannot compete with. Such a focus on quality and support is integral to our alliance. With the market for colour printers becoming so competitive, the value for money that Tally offer and the ability to print to maximum quality in the right environment is a key differentiator.”
