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.
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.
