Frequently Asked Questions

SC Technology Group formerly known as Southern Cross Business Machines has been in the Office Efficiency Solutions industry for over 25 years.

Fortunately there are many ways to reduce your paper consumption dramatically in the workplace. By applying certain principals and educating other employees, you will find a dramatic decrease in paper consumption and costs.

Here are a few simple tips you can apply:

  1. Set your default print to Black & White and Duplex printing
  2. Set the default to Private Print – this will prompt each employee to release their print job at the machine
  3. Consider installing swipe card technology
  4. Scan to an e-file rather than printing the document, hence creating a duplication

If you would like to find out more about how to reduce paper consumption, check out our blog or speak to one of our Business Consultants with no obligation.

In 2013, we saw a break-through in the industry with Toshiba releasing the World’s First Multi-Function Device with the ability to erase toner off the page. This technology allows users to perform standard prints and copies using a specially formulated toner that can be erased off the page once the document is no longer needed.

As each customer has different needs & requirements, each contract is set up in different ways. Therefore, it is important to look at each agreement on its own merits. However, through our experience and processes, we typically see a reduction in costs between 15-40%, improvements in efficiency whilst terminating an existing agreement.

If you are wanting to change your current situation, speak to one of our Business Consultants for advice.

  1. Follow all machine instructions before calling us to book a service. A small jam is usually easily resolved as long as you follow all the instructions on the screen of your machine.
  2. Take note of your machine ID number as written on the sticker on the front of your machine.
  3. Take note of the Error Code the machine is displaying. You can find the Error Code on the top right hand corner of the touch screen (for example CA00)
  4. Call our Service Desk on 03 5221 2511 (Geelong) or 03 5333 7767 (Ballarat)
  5. Alternatively, submit an online form ensuring you include your machine ID, error code, contact name and phone number.

The slit glass and main charger clean is an easy process that all of our customers can perform themselves. We have put together a short video tutorial to show you how to do this simple process:

We have been leasing a copier from SC Technology Group for over 12 months and couldn’t be happier with the service and overall experience. Our sales representative Daniel took the time out to get to know our business and our requirements.The delivery and setup team were punctual and courteous. They took the time to set up the copier properly and ensured that it was working correctly before they left. They even provided a brief tutorial on how to use the copier's features, which we found to be very helpful.Overall, we are extremely satisfied with our experience with SC Technology Group. The service was excellent, the set up and delivery were hassle-free, and the copier is affordable and meets all our needs. We would highly recommend SC Technology to anyone in need of a reliable copier solution.

After 15 years with another company we recently changed to SC Technology. There price was excellent which was a major factor in our change. Daniel and All the staff have been very helpful with our changeover. The new machine is great, very easy to use :)
We at KIDS Foundation are very happy with the whole process that SC Technology Group provided. They have also followed us up and are prepared to come and give further training which at this stage is not required. Best of all, thanks for the large box of chocolates.

We (All Saints' Anglican Parish of Newtown & Geelong West) recently purchased a Toshiba machine from SC Tech to replace our old Toshiba which had eventually stopped working and was unable to be repaired because parts were no longer available for this ancient model. After obtaining quotes from several suppliers, we found that SC's quote was very reasonable and given our long and history with the company we chose them. The installation and training went smoothly, and the machine is running perfectly. I would have no hesitation in recommending SC Tech for their friendly and efficient service and great after sales support.

The team from SC Technology have helped us through these problems & nothing seemed too much trouble for them.We have now upgraded to a brand new copier & are so happy with it & with the service we have been provided. This new copier is so simple to use & is making our job so much easier.I can recommend this company & their new copier with no hesitation.Thanks James, Jeremy & their team.
