Cisco signs on for Xerox managed print services for global workforce

Xerox Corporation announced that it will manage global
print operations across more than 460 Cisco offices, making printing services
easily accessible to employees working from different locations, using a
variety of desktop and mobile devices.

As part of a new managed print services (MPS) strategy,
Xerox will provide the Cisco workforce with
more cost-effective ways to produce and manage documents, improving the
efficiency of the print environment by 20 percent.

Using the Xerox Enterprise Print Services (EPS) platform
to support a new cloud-based mobile print solution, Cisco will allow employees
to securely print from any device, anytime, anywhere without downloading
software, mapping to a printer or booting up their laptops.

Xerox is helping evolve our print services to work the
way our employees do. They don’t sit at the same desk each day, using the same
printer, but we need to make printing as simple as if they did,” said Sheila
Jordan, vice president, Communication and Collaboration, IT, Cisco.

The new print environment will help employees make cost
effective and environmentally sensitive printing decisions on a daily basis,
and give them access to printed documents when they travel to another office,
or even to a hotel.

To meet corporate objectives for efficiency and cost
Cisco will also use Xerox’s print governance
tools automated pop-up” guidelines on the computer screen to direct users to
the best printing option based on price, energy efficiency and ink consumption.

Security is also a top priority for Cisco’s MPS strategy,
since many documents often involve sensitive financial or business information.
To keep confidential documents secure, employees will swipe their badge to pick
up print projects.

This solution represents the future of MPS combining
managed print and cloud ITO services to work within a company’s existing
infrastructure, and support multiple locations and mobile technologies,” said
Stephen Cronin, president, Global Document Outsourcing, Xerox.
