FAA Awards Lexmark $21 Million Printer, MFP Contract
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Lexmark a five-year, $21 million printing contract under which Lexmark will be the sole provider of printing technology for the government agency.
Lexmark will deploy its printers and MFPs across more than 900 FAA locations across the United States. Another agencies within the U.S. Department of Transportation can also take advantage of the contract to access Lexmark’s imaging products and solutions.
Lexmark says its technology will also support the stringent printing and scanning security requirements set forth by the federal government to protect confidential information. This includes requiring users to swipe Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards to access print, copy, scan and fax, and Lexmark’s secure Print Release, a solution that is integrated into Lexmark’s smart workgroup printers and MFPs that requires users to enter PINs at the device’s control panel to release jobs for printing. Lexmark also provides its Markvision Enterprise fleet management tool, a Web-based remote-management software that allows IT administrators to monitor printer fleets from a central location in order to collect device and user information, as well as troubleshoot devices to minimize downtime.
