Western Suffolk Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) is a regional educational service agency located on Long Island, NY that provides educational programs and opportunities to meet distinct needs within 18 local school districts. Western Suffolk BOCES helps school-age children and adults gain the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in the workplace, by offering programs in three main divisions: Special Education, Career & Technical Education and Instructional Support Services.

Western Suffolk BOCES was standardized on a competitive vendor's printing products, including color inkjet printers that were impractical for the education environment.WhileWestern Suffolk BOCES was not actively displeased with its current print operation, they were not aware of the amount ofmoney they were wasting on consumables for the color inkjet printers. Further, the customer was unable to fulfill educator requests for in-classroom color, which teachers believed would improve reader retention levels.
