Sharp Business Systems, a direct-sales division of Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), reports that the District of Columbia public school district has awarded it an $8 million multi-year contract to upgrade its fleet of MFPs at 111 schools and at its central office. This is the fifth year that Sharp Business Systems will be the school district’s preferred vendor; it will supply the school district with some 392 MFPs.
Sharp first began working with the school district in 2009 when it supplied a large portion of the district’s copier equipment. As part of this contract, Sharp is once again helping the district upgrade its equipment and supplied 181 of the Sharp MX-M754N, 159 of the Sharp MX-M904 and 52 of the Sharp MX-M465N document systems for an upgrade installation that took 30 days. A total of 392 machines were installed under the new multi-year contract.
