Xerox Frees Air Force Personnel to Focus on Missions, Not Document Management


Five-year contract centralizes managed print services and saves the
government millions

NORWALK, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#MPS–In an effort to gain transparency, security and cost efficiency in its document
, the United States Air Force has turned to Xerox
(NYSE: XRX) to optimize all aspects of its document environment –
including print, scan and fax – as well as provide a help desk and
management of servers to deliver a comprehensive document infrastructure.

Over the next year, Xerox will replace all Air Force devices with Xerox multifunction
devices and take over management of the fleet. Over the course of the
following four years, Xerox will decrease the number of government-owned
devices by up to 2,000 units, effectively saving the government more
than 20 percent in costs.

Historically, each Air Force squadron was responsible for making its own
print decisions which did not allow for the efficiencies of centralized
management. Xerox will provide a staff of on-site Xerox personnel to be
located between the Pentagon, Joint Base Andrews and Joint Base
Anacostia-Boiling. Support staff will manage the help desk, print
infrastructure and device maintenance.

“The men and women of the Air Force shouldn’t have to divert their
attention from defending our country to focus on document management –
we can do that for them,” said Ted Dezvane, senior vice president,
Managed Document Services, Xerox. “By outsourcing all aspects of its
document environment, the Air Force will gain greater visibility and
control of processes and costs, while saving money and improving
document security.”
