The deal will last six years and is labelled an Enterprise Print Services (EPS) contract, under which the OEM will “consolidate” the company’s existing printer fleet and improve costs, energy efficiency and consumable use.
Boeing’s aim is to “meet environmental sustainability goals to reduce paper use, power use and landfill waste”, and management programmes will be put into place to help employees adapt to the new technology and processes. Xerox’s mobile printing solution will also be added at a later date.
Ted Colbert, Vice President of Boeing IT Infrastructure, stated: “This partnership will strengthen our ability to provide best-in-class print services to our employees and customers.
“Additionally, the newer technologies and improved services Xerox provides will help reduce IT costs while maintaining our commitment to an environmentally friendly workplace.”
Kevin Warren, President of Xerox’s US Client Operations, added: “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.”
Earlier this week HP was awarded a place on the UK government’s MPS programme, in a deal that would see the OEM’s MPS system installed across governmental and local authority offices in the UK.
