Operational efficiencies and cost savings gained with Xerox’s Managed Print Services and ConnectKey Technology
Norwalk, Conn. – Xerox has secured a contract renewal with American Electric Power (AEP), bringing added efficiencies and security to AEP’s document management infrastructure from Xerox’s managed print services (MPS) and ConnectKey® technology.
Xerox will provide a dedicated project manager located on-site at AEP’s corporate headquarters, reinforced by an extended transition team. Serving as a document management support system, this group will manage activities ranging from IT interaction and training, to ordering supplies and equipment installs. This committed resource allows AEP to focus on its key priority of delivering electricity to more than five million customers in 11 states.
While cost savings are a natural result of such an effort, AEP will also benefit from MPS insights related to print output, supplies and support, as well as how employees use documents.
To drive additional returns, Xerox will equip AEP with 1,200 Xerox AltaLink® and Xerox VersaLink® multifunction printers, ensuring a consistent print platform for the company’s more than 350 locations. This ConnectKey-enabled technology provides simple and secure on-the-go capabilities, cloud connectivity, and access to features and apps that transform traditional printing devices into smart, connected workplace assistants.
AEP will also take advantage of Xerox’s Workplace Solutions, offering both mobile printing and innovative security features that guard data and device accessibility.
“Enterprises are recognizing the value of right-sizing their print infrastructure and equipping their employees with the most innovative technology available,” said Mike Feldman, president, Americas Operations, Xerox. “By partnering with Xerox, untapped efficiencies, cost savings and productivity gains can all be realized, a positive outcome for any operation and its bottom line.”
