Xerox will deploy a managed print services (MPS) strategy for Boeing, helping the aerospace leader and innovator with faster, more efficient ways to manage documents on the ground in Boeing’s U.S. offices.
Under the six-year Enterprise Print Services (EPS) contract, Xerox will consolidate devices like printers, copiers and fax machines and design a strategy for the best printing options based on price, energy efficiency and ink use. By deploying MPS, Xerox will help Boeing meet environmental sustainability goals to reduce paper use, power use and landfill waste.
“This partnership will strengthen our ability to provide best-in-class print services to our employees and customers,” said Ted Colbert, vice president, Boeing IT Infrastructure. “Additionally, the newer technologies and improved services Xerox provides will help reduce IT costs while maintaining our commitment to an environmentally friendly workplace.”
Change management programs will be put in place to help employees adapt to more efficient technology and work processes. Future plans include Xerox’s mobile print solution, which will allow Boeing’s mobile workforce to securely print from any device, anytime, anywhere without downloading software, mapping to a printer or booting up their laptops.
“Boeing wanted a strategic partner to both innovate the way they do business and save money. We responded with an MPS plan that serves their specific needs for advanced security, environmentally sensitive work strategies and simplified ways to manage both printed and digital information,” said Kevin Warren, president, U.S. Client Operations, Xerox.
As the worldwide market leader in MPS, Xerox is working with businesses of all sizes to simplify the way work gets done – so employees spend less time managing documents, and more time focused on their core business. Xerox integrates MPS into the IT infrastructure to help intelligently organize information – from both paper and electronic sources. The company was named the worldwide market share leader(1) and positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders Quadrant in the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services Worldwide(2) and recognized as a leader in IDC’s Managed Print Services and Basic Print Services 2012-2015 Forecast and Analysis report(3) and 2011 MPS MarketScape report(4).
