Office Depot to Deploy Thousands of Xerox MFPs, Production-Print Systems
On February 7th, Office Depot announced the latest enhancement to its print and copy services with the placement of thousands of new Xerox units, from walk-up Xerox MPF/printers, to high-end Xerox production-printing systems and personalization software, in its retail stores and regional production facilities throughout the United States.
Office Depot is a provider of business services and supplies, products and technology solutions through its platform of approximately 1,400 retail stores, online Web site, and dedicated sales professionals and technicians serving small, mid-size, and enterprise businesses.
Under the agreement, Office Depot walk-up customers will be able to use Xerox MFPs’ tablet-like user interface to copy, print, and scan, as well as checkout right at the device with a customized, secure auto-pay feature. Behind the counter, the Xerox Color C60/C70 Printer will be available to deliver quality color print applications ranging from invitations and posters to promotional products and marketing materials, with the added convenience of users being able to place orders in-store, online, or through the Office Depot mobile app for in-store pick-up.
The agreement marks an extension of the company’s 30-year relationship with Xerox, and is Office Depot’s latest investment in its Workonomy platform of business services, which include print and copy, technology, packing and shipping, furniture and administrative services married with “human touch” expertise.
“One of the core tenets of our Workonomy platform lies in meeting the needs of our business customers, on their terms, through our robust business services and expertise, including printing, technology, packing and shipping,” said John Gannfors, chief merchandising and supply chain officer for Office Depot. “The demand for print services continues to be strong, and through this investment, our customers will continue to receive the same outstanding service, output and reliability they’ve come to expect from Office Depot.”
Office Depot says the new Xerox installations will serve both retail and business customers. On the production-printing side, the installations will include the Xerox Iridesse Production Press, which can print using using metallic inks. Other systems will include the Xerox Brenva HD Production Inkjet Press and the Xerox Trivor Inkjet Press, which are high-speed inkjet systems said to provide offset quality output, which gives customers the continued benefit of mass customization and variability of digital printing while offering superior quality and economic benefits.
“Our mantra is to be a true technology partner, expanding well beyond the box to provide strategic guidance and consultancy,” said Mike Feldman, president, Americas Operations, Xerox. “Our long-term partnership with Office Depot is indicative of Xerox’s staying power and we’re confident our innovations will help propel their Workonomy platform even further.”
