ROCHESTER, N.Y. —
Xerox (NYSE: XRX) has been named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Managed Print and Document Services (MPDS) 2013 Hardcopy Vendor Analysis1 for the fourth consecutive year.
According to the report, which analyzes MPDS vendors and delivers an overview of competitive fitness, Xerox’s offering was among the most comprehensive of all nine vendors evaluated. The company was noted not only for its breadth of services, but also for its ability to engineer innovative solutions and to drive savings across large enterprises and small- and medium-sized businesses.
“Companies are now looking for ways to integrate print and document workflows into the rest of their IT infrastructure and help clients not only print for less, but print less,” said Mike Feldman, senior vice president, Xerox Global Document Outsourcing and Managed Print Services. “Our print environment experience allows us to build content management and business process automation strategies that simplify how work gets done.”
Xerox’s investments in software and solutions include tools that provide predictive analytics and data to simplify print environments and deliver further cost savings. In addition, Xerox ConnectKey™ lets workers scan and upload documents to cloud repositories, send business-critical documents directly into workflow processes and print securely and easily from any mobile device.
