Scenario: A busy telecommunications company has various departments and previously had to store their own consumables with staff in each department managing their own requirements. This was proving to be both a space and time consuming activity which they could not afford. By using e-mail notification the company can now store their consumables centrally for all departments. When a machine is starting to run low on toner an e-mail is automatically sent to stores and a new cartridge can be sent out before the old one runs out. This has provided a much more efficient service for the end user and consumables are not stored needlessly around the site.
