Xerox has won a five-year MPS contract, worthy of 14.8 million dollars, from the University of Nottingham, claiming 25% cost save for its customer.
The program includes the replacement of 3,700 devices with 500 energy-efficient multifunction devices and 200 desktop printers. Xerox promises to save energy, reduce carbon emissions and resource consumption with the program, as the university is executing its 2010-2015 sustainability plan.
“As we worked to identify cost savings and plan for our future, we realized we needed data on devices and document printing across 60 departments,” said Jim Reed, the university’s director of procurement. “Xerox is helping us to manage our print operations through innovative solutions. Several other universities are keen to find out how the model could be applied to their own environments.”
According to the agreement, Xerox will also set up mobile printing for the university’s 6,500 employees and 34,000 students.
“We’re working with the University of Nottingham to future proof the print environment so it supports students and staff today and for years to come,” said Amanda Abernethy, general manager and director of Large Enterprise Operations, Xerox U.K. “In this way, the university can stay focused on continuing to provide an excellent forum for study.”
