Lexmark Wins $100 Million Managed Print Services Contract from Alberta Health Services
Lexmark International reports that it’s signed a five-year managed print services (MPS) agreement for approximately $100 million with Alberta Health Services (AHS) of Alberta, Canada.
The firm says Alberta Health Services conducted a rigorous evaluation through an open competitive bid process, which began in 2013, and resulted in the selection of Lexmark as the service provider best able to meet its printing goals.
Lexmark will provide AHS with managed services including business assessments, infrastructure optimization, asset management, proactive consumables management, maintenance service, software solutions, reporting, and governance.
It’ll also deploy a standardized fleet of Lexmark printers and smart MFPs across more than 900 AHS departmental locations, helping to standardize AHS’ existing print environment.
The firm says another key component of this MPS engagement is the reduction of AHS’ environmental impact due to printing, which Lexmark’s MPS deployment will immediately address when rolled out across the provincial healthcare system.
Lexmark will also provide AHS with specific healthcare solutions, such as Lexmark’s Downtime Reports, which enables MFPs to provide anytime access to documents such as patient forms, charts and reports, even during computer or network downtime, ensuring personnel’s access to critical records.
“Lexmark’s deep healthcare industry expertise and leadership in MPS deployments are among the many reasons AHS has chosen Lexmark,” commented Marty Canning, Lexmark executive vice president and president of Lexmark’s Imaging Solutions and Services. “Lexmark’s results-driven world-class MPS methodology will help AHS better manage its printing needs and challenges, and enable the organization to focus on providing the best health support and service for its patients across the province.”
