Faced with the same economical challenges as CIOs of major corporations, IT leaders at colleges and universities around the world are turning to Xerox for managed print services (MPS) to reduce operational costs – in some cases by up to 30%.

Xerox applies the same tools and techniques used to save millions for corporate customers to help higher education institutions. For example, Canada's University of British Columbia (UBC) expects to save $8 million over six years with better-managed document and print services.

The MPS approach will help UBC staff and students interact more effectively through efficient use of technology. UBC also anticipates that efficiency improvements will lead to reduced energy consumption, printer ink use, and carbon footprint emissions, supporting the university's sustainability strategy.

Xerox is the only MPS provider to monitor as many as 1.5 million printers from multiple vendors around the world. This allows its higher education clients such as University of Calgary, in Alberta, and Stonehill College, in the US, to get more out of their existing print infrastructure and benefit from a consistent approach regardless of size or location.
