OEMs win MPS contract in Canada

September 20, 2019

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd., Xerox Canada Ltd. and Ricoh Canada Inc. have been chosen by the Government of Canada to deliver managed print services (MPS).

The company announced it is one of three vendors who will deliver managed print services, software solutions, and fleet management to the Government of Canada.

Konica Minolta explained that its technology was selected based on its organisation’s capability to meet the Managed Print Services model that Shared Services Canada (SSC) has established for all departments and agencies. Konica Minolta met the stringent security requirements from a facility, product and personnel perspective as part of the evolving IT security requirements for government.

SSC, the government department responsible for delivering digital services to Government of Canada organisations, announced the new agreements with Konica Minolta, Xerox Canada Ltd., and Ricoh Canada Inc. in May.

The six-year agreements are collectively worth an estimated $60 million (€54 million) annually. The new agreements aim to simplify and improve service delivery to Government of Canada employees, while ensuring the Government’s digital infrastructure remains secure.

“After an extensive engagement with Shared Services Canada, we’re excited to finally announce our partnership with the Government of Canada,” said Chris Dewart, President and CEO, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. “Our print technology offers the most cutting-edge security, hardware, and software available on the market right now, and will serve to optimize the public service’s print operations.”
