Xerox Positioned in Leaders Quadrant for Research Firm's Managed Print Services Report
Uxbridge, UK, sep 26, 2008 – Xerox has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders Quadrant in the “Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services Worldwide ” report.
The Magic Quadrant is a proprietary research tool developed by Gartner to evaluate companies on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Gartner included Managed Print Services (MPS) providers who meet the customer’s office printing needs, including equipment, supplies, service, and overall management of the printer fleet. The Magic Quadrant report provides guidance to Gartner clients who are evaluating MPS vendors and solutions.
Xerox Office Services offers a comprehensive assessment of a company’s current fleet of multi-vendor copiers, printers and other hardware - and then creates a print setting that meets the needs of the workplace. The resulting benefits include lower print costs, easier ways to manage documents and environmental sustainability opportunities.
“We believe Xerox’s position in the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is proof of our relentless attention to results,” said Stephen Cronin, president, Xerox Global Services. “With our metrics-driven Lean Six Sigma approach, we turn office settings into well-managed, highly-productive, secured print sites – positively impacting our customers’ bottom line and competitive advantage.”
In addition to maintaining its own equipment, Xerox currently manages approximately one million competitive devices in customers’ offices worldwide, including help desk, break-fix, supplies, service level agreements and procurement.
