Case Study | Toshiba Fleet Drives New York College’s Sustainability Efforts


Nestled in a historic neighborhood in Buffalo, New York, D’Youville College (DYC) enrolls more than 3,000 students and employs 400 full-time professionals. The college is recognized for its student and staff’s passion for eco and sustainability issues.

This eco-focus extends to DYC CIO, Roozbeh Tavakoli. When discovering how inefficient and energy-sapping the college’s print fleet was performing, he took action. After listening to presentations given by four multifunction printer (MFP) vendors, Tavakoli was particularly impressed by Toshiba’s focus on helping organizations operate more efficiently and ecologically.

“All of the MFP vendors we met built equipment that would allow us to successfully meet our student and administrative needs,” Tavakoli noted. “But Toshiba’s team really understood our campus culture and their products’ energy-saving hardware and software elements enable our community to function more reliably, efficiently and sustainably.”

Tavakoli was impressed by the outstanding benefits of Toshiba’s e- STUDIO line, especially the MFPs’ capability to produce the high quality materials DYC’s students, professors and administrators require. The IT executive made a point to integrate Toshiba’s award-winning e-STUDIO products across the campus to satisfy those needs.
