6 steps to success: keeping your card printers up and running

Neil Anderson

As Christmas fast approaches, the leisure industry is preparing for the inevitability that, come January, guilt-ridden over indulgers will descend on the UK’s gyms, health clubs and spas.

Registration for gym membership increases dramatically in January. In fact, 12% of all gym memberships are taken out in the new year. 

With increased footfall and lots of new membership cards to print, card printing equipment needs to be in optimum condition. Any downtime could be costly to both reseller and user.   

So how do you help your customers prepare for their busiest period? 

We’ve put together a simple checklist below to ensure that their card printers don’t let them down: 

  1. Make sure the card printer is right for the job – Is the spec high enough, can it handle the volumes required? 
  2. Ensure your equipment is properly installed and software is set up correctly. 
  3. Use genuine / manufacturer approved media. 
  4. Ensure that the users are adequately trained – many breakdowns result from user error. 
  5. Ensure the printer is properly maintained – book regular preventative maintenance visits to clean, check and ensure all equipment is in prime condition. 
  6. Have a plan in place in case of breakdown – maintenance contract, ad hoc call outs or a spare printer onsite. 

 Qcom provides a wide range of support solutions for card printers from installation and training to regular preventative maintenance visits and emergency repairs.  We’re accredited by many leading manufacturers so you can be sure we’ll have equipment up and running in no time.
