Uxbridge, U.K., December 23, 2008 – According to a new report from Gartner, Inc., Xerox ranked as the worldwide market share leader for 2007 in Managed Print Services (MPS) based on revenue. Xerox believes this data further validates its approach to provide services and solutions that deliver business value*.
Xerox/Fuji Xerox captured 53 percent of MPS revenues worldwide in 2007 and in Western Europe alone, accounts for 50 percent of the MPS market.
“This is the second of two evaluations Xerox has received from Gartner, the first being our placement in the ‘Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services Worldwide**’ report,” said Stephen Cronin, president, Xerox Global Services. “We think the Gartner reports, along with the significant cost savings and productivity gains we’re achieving for our customers, speak to our leadership position in the MPS space.”
Ownership for document output is usually fragmented across organisations and departments. With Xerox Office Services’ comprehensive Lean Six Sigma-based approach, customers are able to determine the actual costs associated with printing, copying and faxing across all offices. The assessment also tracks how often and when multi-vendor copiers, printers and other hardware devices are being used. Armed with this information, Xerox designs an output strategy that not only meets workplace requirements, but also increases efficiency while reducing waste.
In addition to maintaining its own equipment, Xerox currently manages more than a million competitive devices in customers’ offices worldwide; which includes help desk, break-fix, supplies, service level agreements and procurement.
