UXBRIDGE, U.K., February 28, 2017 – Xerox U.K. has been awarded an expanded remit within the new Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Multifunctional Devices, Managed Print and Content Services and Records and Information Management Framework agreement.
Xerox has secured supplier status for Multifunctional Devices and Print Management Software and Services (Lot 2) as well as Scanning Services (Lot 5). Xerox is also responsible for Managed Print and Content Management Services (Lot 3) which was announced in November 2016.
The four-year framework is aligned to the Government’s ‘digital by default’ strategy and Lot 2 and Lot 3 have been awarded in partnership with YPO and ESPO. As part of the agreement, Xerox is now responsible for providing a wide range of services including:
- Multifunctional print devices and management software
- Scanning services
- Digital media storage
- 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.
“Government organisations are under increasing pressure to drive cost savings and increase productivity by bridging the gap between paper and digital,” said Andrew Morrison, U.K. and Ireland managing director, Xerox. “Xerox research has demonstrated that there is significant potential for organisations to achieve more through digital transformation and this framework provides an important opportunity to reach key decision makers.”
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 supplier 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 including 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.
