Brother recently formed a partnership with Orange Sky Laundry, the world’s first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. With its logistically complex and admin-heavy business it needed help in getting information to those without internet access locate the charity. “The company considered the charity’s challenges and solutions before providing a range of printers to find the perfect fit to meet their needs,” Howard said. For the next three years Brother will donate all consumables required for the devices.
