Océ North America, Document Printing Systems to sell Managed Print Services to the federal government

<p>TRUMBULL, CONN. October 3, 2011 – Océ, a Canon Group Company and, an international leader in digital document management, today announced that Managed Print Services (MPS) has been added to Océ’s GSA Schedule 36 Contract, allowing Océ North America, Document Printing Systems to sell MPS to the federal government. </p> <p>MPS focuses on the proactive management of existing fleets of print devices as well as devices that are added in the future. It can support a wide range of single-function printers, multifunctional devices and stand-alone fax machines, including both laser and non-laser devices from a variety of manufacturers. The program enables single-point accountability and streamlining of printer supply and service vendors. </p> <p>To support continuous improvement in federal agencies, Océ will provide quarterly reviews and print lifecycle analysis, which includes reports on usage, trends, service detail and overall uptime. A focus on sustainability and environmental initiatives is supported by a closed-loop recycling process, energy consumption analysis and plans for decommissioning end-of-life devices. </p> <!--break--> <p>&quot;We are committed to bringing the benefits of Managed Print Services to the federal government,&quot; said Bryan Beauchamp, Vice President of Federal Sales for Océ North America, Document Printing Systems. &quot;Our approach allows agencies to keep their existing hardware and have supplies, service and optimization strategies managed through a single vendor. Immediate hardware replacement isn’t always the best solution – our program allows investments in existing resources to be leveraged.&quot; </p> <p>The addition of MPS to the GSA contract will allow Océ to provide federal agencies with in-depth needs assessments; a cost-per-impression MPS program that includes toner, consumables, parts and labor and dedicated onsite fleet managers. </p> <p>On October 13, 2011, Océ is hosting a workshop and strategy session for IT professionals in federal agencies, entitled &quot;Best Practices for Mixed Fleet Management: Leveraging Your Existing Investment in Printer Technology.&quot; To register for this event, email Barbara Bankert at Barbara.Bankert@oce.com or call 571-227-7700.
