Xerox Launches Enterprise Print Services
ROCHESTER, NY—Oct. 29, 2009—Solidifying its lead in managed print services (MPS), Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today announced Enterprise Print Services (EPS), the first offering to help companies better manage documents across their global print infrastructure — from the office to the in-house print center to the virtual workplace.
Xerox EPS reduces the cost of printing, sharing and updating everything from a home worker’s 50-page proposal to full-color brochures in a marketing department. Extending Xerox’s MPS offering to give companies a complete view of worldwide print operations, EPS ensures all document output meets budget targets, security policies, and environmental sustainability objectives.
“By expanding MPS beyond the office walls, organizations have total control over company-wide print spend,” said Ken Weilerstein, vice president, research at Gartner, Inc. “This is significant because internal and external print shop costs can often exceed office printing spend, so optimizing across all print environments will uncover even more sources of cost savings.”
Xerox makes it easy for companies to identify new opportunities to cut costs and improve efficiency across the entire print network by adding the following capabilities to its MPS portfolio:
Support for home and virtual printing: Employees working from home or remote locations benefit from the same support system offered in the office. Xerox monitors off-site devices and reaches out via phone, e-mail or Web-based support sessions to provide technical assistance. Universal print drivers give mobile workers easy access to print output devices when working in corporate offices.
Print routing to save money, paper and time: Based on an analysis of employee work habits, Xerox helps companies set up guidelines that direct documents to the most appropriate device, based on specific requirements such as cost, turnaround time and location. For example, when employees go to print, they receive a message such as: “Print to a different printer nearby to save $20.”
