MPS: Learn from the Print Centre in the UK

It sounds like a great non MFP Print software system. It's still missing the fleet management piece. But sooner or later or maybe now, but not known to me, there will be/is a VAR who will put that piece in the mix.
The Print Centre at the University of South Hampton, UK:
"The Total Managed Print Solution

Our ethos at The Print Centre is to provide our customers with a printing service that offers value for money, with services and advice that meets and exceeds our customers' expectations.
Featured services:

* Digital Copying for Black and White and Colour from A5 - SRA3
* Digital Printing for Black and White and Colour from A5 - SRA3
* Variable Data and targeted marketing projects
* Large format posters and display stands
* PDF Workflow and Environmental platemaking
* Litho Printing on 4,2 and single colour presses
* Finishing and Mailing service" resells Press-Sense iWay in the U.K. iWay looks like it's a pretty simple solution for the non MFP Print piece.
Press-sense iWay was a product that would actually do the job out-of-the-box. It seems to have a a reasonable adoption path.
. . .
The University of Southampton, Print Centre has decided to move into this new e-business system in stages. They started with more simple jobs such as stationery, business cards, and now, after three months, are working on advancing to the next level. At present the Print Centre is taking advantage of the Transeo Media iWay Managed Service (ASP) and thoroughly enjoys this hosted solution although they do plan to eventually upgrade iWay into a stand- alone application.
