New MFDs to be introduced

IS have been working towards replacing the current Multi-Functional fleet over the last year.

The aim of the project was to ensure that QMUs print strategy was met whilst offering users increased functionality at a competitive cost.

IS have been working to ensure that the new hardware meets your requirements. This has involved staff feedback sessions and configuring trials of the device within the University to allow for a comprehensive live test and to gather user feedback.

Staff can raise any queries or issues through
