LONDON, July 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The XX Commonwealth Games starts in Glasgow next week and the city is getting
ready to welcome a spectacular display of world-class sporting talent. As one
of the event's official sponsors Toshiba TEC UK Imaging Systems is providing
Glasgow 2014 with a comprehensive, fully supported office automation solution
that will keep the information flowing.

Glasgow 2014 Limited (Glasgow 2014) is the official name for the organising
committee that has the task of delivering the event in partnership with the
Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and Commonwealth Games Scotland.

In 2012 Toshiba TEC was awarded the role of Official Office Automation
Supporter by Glasgow 2014, to supply a comprehensive printing solution for the
build up period and during the Games itself.

Murray Husband is General Manager for Information Technology Services at
Glasgow 2014, and states, 'We carried out a rigorous selection process and
only invited those companies that could offer state-of-the-art technology and
provide the necessary on-venue support and expertise - all as a full turn-key
solution. After carefully assessing all the responses, we felt that Toshiba
TEC was the best equipped to work with us and help us meet our demanding and
unique objectives.'

Toshiba TEC started work on the project in October 2012, when 20 multifunction
products (MFPs) were delivered to the Games' headquarters.

That was just the beginning though and in the period up to the start of the
event over 600 of its market leading e-STUDIO MFPs and desktop printing
devices will be deployed, supported by on- site engineers, a dedicated
helpdesk and project managers.

The MFPs will be located everywhere from back offices and receptions through
to media and results areas. The number of devices deployed in each location
will obviously depend on the size of venue and the expected demand.

Although the technology that Toshiba TEC is providing Glasgow 2014 with is
important, equally so is the service and support that goes with it. Two
dedicated project managers are backed up by a variety of technical, resourcing
and logistics personnel, who are responsible for ensuring that the devices
arrive at specified locations and that any system software is set up
correctly. During the Games, up to 35 additional Toshiba TEC personnel will be
on the various sites from the hours of 6.00am-12.00am, working in two shifts.

The final word goes to David Grevemberg, chief executive of Glasgow 2014, who
concludes, 'I'm delighted that we've been able to partner with Toshiba TEC on
this important aspect of the preparations for the XX Commonwealth Games. The
company is a true leader in its field and brings a wealth of expertise - not
only in delivering key services but also doing so amidst the uniquely
pressurised environment and atmosphere of a global sporting event.'
