Pitney Bowes Selected by The Cooperative Purchasing Network to Provide Managed Print Services

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

STAMFORD, Conn. - Pitney Bowes Inc. today announced that its Management Services business unit was selected by The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN) in Houston. Under the authority of the Texas Region 4 Education Service Center (ESC), the lead agency responsible for the bid, Pitney Bowes Management Services was awarded a contract for Managed Print Services (MPS). Under this agreement, state and local government agencies in Texas and other states are able to purchase MPS solutions from Pitney Bowes using a significantly streamlined procurement process.

TCPN is a national purchasing cooperative that contracts on behalf of K-12 schools, higher education institutions, local governments and non-profit organizations in all 50 states. Established to help public entities operate more economically, TCPN leverages its collective membership to bid and award contracts, freeing its individual members from having to negotiate on their own.

“We are excited to partner with TCPN as they expand their portfolio of offerings to their stakeholders at various levels of government,” said Tim Healy, vice president, Commercial & Public Sector, Pitney Bowes Management Services. “Pitney Bowes is a leading provider of innovative managed print services and has the resources at the ready to help clients customize solutions to address their unique needs, streamline business processes, and achieve dramatic cost savings.”

This contract offers TCPN’s 30,000-plus active government and nonprofit members pre-negotiated pricing for Managed Print Services that leverage the network’s buying power to deliver lower costs without the challenge of a local bid process, which is often costly and time consuming.

“TCPN is pleased to partner with Pitney Bowes on a managed print solutions offering. The Pitney Bowes portfolio of solutions will enable public sector agencies to better leverage their print spend, to deliver cost savings while receiving the highest levels of quality,” said Chris Penny, vice president, Sales, TCPN.
