Cardinal Print Survey Results Highlight Strong Preparation in Stanford Redwood City
Staff who moved to the Stanford Redwood City (SRWC) campus this year had positive feedback about Cardinal Print in this fall’s survey about the program rollout.
The 634 staff who responded to the survey reported a smooth transition to Cardinal Print, although some had questions about equipment and functionality, issues that the Cardinal Print team is currently addressing to enhance the user experience.
Cardinal Print is a new managed print program that rolled out for the first time in 2019 on the SRWC campus. The Cardinal Print program is a university-wide strategic initiative, a partnership between Financial Management Services (FMS) and University IT (UIT), with the guidance of university leadership and representative members of the Stanford community, to identify and act upon opportunities to increase efficiencies, improve user experience, and save money.
Survey results showed that:
- 95% of respondents recall receiving one or more communication about the program, or participated in a training opportunity
- 83% felt that their work was not unnecessarily disrupted during implementation
- 78% were satisfied with how the implementation went
- 71% felt well prepared to use the devices
In the open-ended questions on the survey, most positive comments were about training and support staff. Most constructive comments were about Cardinal Print equipment and functionality, particularly questions about print device defaults.
