About Us

Simon Coleman (Managing Director) commenced his career with Nashua as a Photocopier field technician in 1988.


After moving to Mackay in January 1990, Simon purchased Graham Shanks Business Machines with a Partner in April 1992.


In February 1994, Simon and Allison purchased the business in full.

As the business has grown and team Members have been added, Simon now oversees the entire operation, focusing on providing every Client with the best service we can and developing new solutions to benefit our clients.


In 2011, Shanks Business Machine’s re-invented itself as Status Pro  Office Print Solutions.

The complete re-brand reflected how the company had evolved from supply and maintenance of business machines to providing super- efficient whole-of-office document management systems, utilising the latest software and hardware by industry leaders Ricoh.

It was time to re-invent our image, to reflect that we are about more than just photocopy machines, but can offer powerful document management software solutions that can boost efficiency within our customer’s businesses.

This includes software solutions such as Ricoh’s Laserfiche Avante, a document management system with fully integrated business process management. Moving beyond static archival, Avante features powerful tools for automating and optimising business-wide workflow processes.

Status Pro has also introduced ESA Transformer machine-embedded software, with the capacity to transform scanned documents into a variety of searchable standard document software formats.

Status Pro  has developed a higher standard of in-house procedures to better serve customers.

Ricoh’s @ Remote system is now vitally important in the evolution of document management – machine automatically email StatusPro metering information or any developing service faults, allowing StatusPro to automatically schedule a visit from one of its experienced service engineers.

Our team of talented Service Engineers have been in the industry collectively for in excess of 55 years. With this wealth of experience we strongly believe in the capacity of our business to service and provide exceptional value to our clients.

Our Focus is in supplying Devices and managing your documents. We don’t sell Phone Systems, We don’t sell Computers, We don’t sell Cash Registers and we don’t do Point of Sale.


This specialist attitude can help your business reach its potential with your document workflow.


Status Pro's Business Solution Specialists can provide an audit of your document workflow to provide professional advise on how to boost productivity whilst reducing your printing and scanning costs.
