ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Xerox (NYSE: XRX) will deploy a managed print services (MPS) strategy for Boeing (NYSE: BA), helping the aerospace leader and innovator with faster, more efficient ways to manage documents on the ground in Boeing’s U.S. offices.
Under the six-year Enterprise Print Services (EPS) contract, Xerox will consolidate devices like printers, copiers and fax machines and design a strategy for the best printing options based on price, energy efficiency and ink use. By deploying MPS, Xerox will help Boeing meet environmental sustainability goals to reduce paper use, power use and landfill waste.
“This partnership will strengthen our ability to provide best-in-class print services to our employees and customers,” said Ted Colbert, vice president, 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.”
Change management programs will be put in place to help employees adapt to more efficient technology and work processes. Future plans include Xerox’s mobile print solution, which will allow Boeing’s mobile workforce to securely print from any device, anytime, anywhere without downloading software, mapping to a printer or booting up their laptops.
“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, U.S. Client Operations, Xerox.
