Trex is the world’s largest manufacturer of wood alternative decking products and is the inventor of the product that revolutionized the composite deck category. Trex continues to perfect its outdoor engineering through a powerful blend of innovation and environmental responsibility. Trex’s wide range of high-performance composite products can be found in more than 42 countries and makes up the largest market share of composite decking in North America.
After experiencing rapid growth, Trex encountered new opportunities and challenges. Trex was faced with obstacles in acquiring, deploying, and managing its print hardware. Multiple leases of varying expiration dates and no formal print strategy burdened an already strained IT staff and created downtime in critical departments.
We identified the right equipment that would replace the aged fleet and account for continued growth, placing new equipment in areas of heavy use and Certified equipment in appropriate locations, such as warehouses. Our in-house leasing team captured information related to vendors, rates, and lease-end dates in order to harness Trex’s purchasing power and consolidate their payments. We moved aged equipment to a central staging area to manage the end-of-term lease process on behalf of the client.
By standardizing with HP and Xerox Technology, integrating TML’s Managed Print Services, and deploying a new print policy, Trex was able to create a sustainable strategy for their Corporate office, production facilities, and warehousing sites across the country. This saved them approximately 25% of their print costs. TML’s Managed Print Services eliminated the burden of printer support by Trex’s IT staff and improved the accounting department’s efficiency by creating a simplified billing system. Due to the success of the initial roll-out, TML expanded the solution to additional Trex locations.
