Established in 1988, Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust is a registered charity offering a network of care for life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people and their families, across the heart of England.
The children and young people that Acorns help are not expected to reach adulthood and require specialist care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In the last year Acorns has supported over 800 children and more than 1,030 families, including those who are bereaved.
Stratas is working with the charity to drive process improvements and enable future developments in the area of process automation.
The first stage of this development is the delivery of a Managed Print Service across the retail shop estate. As well as reducing costs, the service is delivering operational improvements, through enabling Acorns to deliver a consistent brand message across all locally printed documents, whilst reducing the internal administrative burden which previously consumed IT resource.
