The NEPA 2 framework, led by the North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC), is an agreement for printer manufacturers and selected resellers to offer MPS services to the whole of the Higher Education Sector. The remit of the NEPA 2 framework includes different lots that address different printing services and solutions offered by manufacturers via selected resellers.
Epson said it has secured the maximum of four lots, meaning its catalogue office-based product portfolio, managed print services, production (large-format) printers and one-stop shop total solution – combination of MPS and Production) will be available through this framework.
Richard Wells, Head of Business Sales for Epson UK, said: “This change marks a great milestone for the public sector in reducing its carbon footprint and it validates the commercial benefits our sustainable printing technology will offer resellers operating in this sector. Securing the agreements from NEPA 2 followed a long and in-depth review of Epson’s quality and sustainability policies, device location management, marketing strategy, and everything in between, and we’re pleased to be one step further in making inkjet the more commonplace alternative to laser.”
