On-Site Reprographics Center, Smart Move for Vanderweil Engineers
Press release from the issuing company
Woburn, MA (6/7/01) -- Charrette ProGraphics announces its newest On-Site Services partnership with the firm of Vanderweil Engineers. On-Site Services (OSS) programs provide installation of reprographics equipment and cost recovery systems into host firms, with charges based on usage only. This business model allows firms to have the newest reprographics equipment and technology in-house without the cash outlay to purchase them or inflexible lease contracts. Reimbursable client/reprographics expenses by project are successfully tracked and reported using proprietary software.
Founded in 1950, Vanderweil Engineers is a 650-person mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering firm with offices in Boston, Orlando, Princeton and the Washington, DC area.
Engineering News Record (ENR) ranked Vanderweil Engineers one of the nation's largest consulting mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering firms in its Year 2000 survey of design firms.
Bill Vanderweil, Treasurer of Vanderweil Engineers, states "Charrette offered the technological expertise and infrastructure to link our geographically dispersed offices and backed it up with excellent service. Solutions for reprographics, reporting and staffing were all addressed and pulled together." Charrette has installed its proprietary project tracking and reporting software to encompass all of the firm's internal reprographics equipment: convenience copiers, high volume copiers, high speed b&w and color plotters, Canon Laser color copier/printers, laser printers and fax machines.
Vanderweil Director of Administration, Michael Dobbin states "Based upon Charrette's accounting and reporting capabilities, as well as the business agreement we have entered, we are very confident that partnering with Charrette is one of the soundest financial and operational decisions we've made. They definitely have our business objectives in mind."
States Mark DiPasquale, President, Charrette ProGraphics "We are delighted to add a firm of Vanderweil's stature to our family of A/E/C based OSS partnerships. We look forward to working closely with them and providing exceptional service to their multi-office operation."
