Xerox Lands Boeing MPS Contract
Xerox has landed a six-year Enterprise Print Services (EPS) contract with aerospace leader Boeing. Under the contract, Xerox will focus on Boeing’s U.S. offices, consolidating Boeing’s print, copy and fax devices, and design a strategy for the best printing options based on price, energy efficiency and ink use, and will also help Boeing meet environmental sustainability goals for reducing paper use, power use and landfill waste.
Xerox will also deliver change-management programs to help employees adapt to more efficient technology and work processes. Future plans include using Xerox’s mobile print solution, which will enable Boeing’s mobile workforce to securely print from any device, anytime, anywhere without downloading software, mapping to a printer or booting up their laptops.
“This partnership will strengthen our ability to provide best-in-class print services to our employees and customers,” said Ted Colbert, vice president of 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.”
“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 of Xerox’s U.S. Client Operations.
Xerox was named the worldwide market share leader and positioned by Gartner in its Leaders Quadrant in the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services Worldwide, and was recognized as a leader in IDC’s Managed Print Services and Basic Print Services 2012-2015 Forecast and Analysis report and 2011 MPS MarketScape report. It also earned the top position in Quocirca’s 2012 MPS report.
