UXBRIDGE, U.K., Nov 14, 2016 – Xerox U.K. has been appointed a place on the new Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Multifunctional Devices, Managed Print and Content Services and Records and Information Management Framework agreement for Managed Print and Content Management Services, Lot 3.

The new pan government framework aims to accelerate the use of digital technologies and deliver cost savings for government departments and wider public sector organisations.

The framework was awarded in partnership with YPO and ESPO and will run for up to four years. As part of the agreement, Xerox will provide:

  • Managed print services

  • Content management services

  • Office & production technology

These offerings will assist government departments and the wider public sector in their move from paper-based to digital workflows and the provision of in-house or off-site print services.

“Xerox research shows that digital government is on the horizon but having a plan in place is critical to success,” said Andrew Morrison, president, Large Enterprise Organisation, Xerox Europe. “We’re already working with government departments and public sector organisations to help bridge the paper and digital world. This framework enables us to reach many more decision makers and outline the necessary steps that must be taken to securely and successfully transform processes, improve productivity and increase cost savings.”

The new framework is expected to become the leading agreement for the procurement of managed print, technology and information management services across the public sector, including central and local government, police authorities, NHS bodies and universities.

As a partner to the U.K. government and public sector for more than 40 years, Xerox provides document management and technology to a wide range of public sector organisations such as the Department of Work and Pensions, Luton & Dunstable NHS Foundation Trust, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Newport City Council.
