Xerox in Leaders Quadrant of 2009 Managed Print Services Report
Stockholm, sep 02, 2009 – Xerox has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2009 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services (MPS) Worldwide.1
The Magic Quadrant is a proprietary research tool developed by Gartner that offers visual snapshots of a market's direction, maturity and participants, and evaluates companies on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
As the market leader in MPS, Xerox works with clients like Procter & Gamble, Reuters, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, The Dow Chemical Company and KeyCorp to reduce operational costs by up to 30 percent and get more out of the print infrastructure they’ve invested in – from the office to the print shop to the virtual workplace.
“Xerox’s position in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant validates the strength of our offering, especially in these challenging economic times,” said Stephen Cronin, president, Xerox Global Services. “In addition to short-term cost savings, our MPS clients around the globe boast the long-term results of a successful partnership with Xerox including enhanced productivity, increased compliance and reduced energy consumption.”
Founded on rigorous, data-driven Lean Six Sigma-based methodologies, Xerox’s suite of MPS offerings helps clients better manage the volume of documents flowing through the organisation – and the costs associated with printing, sharing and updating them. For small businesses to global enterprises, Xerox optimises the use of multi-vendor output devices, like printers, fax machines and copiers, and delivers change management support so employees can successfully adapt to new technology and work processes. Xerox also helps clients meet environmental goals by reducing paper use, decreasing power use and eliminating landfill waste.
Gartner first introduced the MPS category of its Magic Quadrant report last year to help provide guidance to Gartner clients who are evaluating MPS vendors and solutions.
