University of Maine System awards print services contract to Xerox

The University of Maine System has awarded a contract for Managed Print Services to Xerox Business Solutions. The contract marks a transition from a long-standing relationship with Canon Solutions America, as well as other vendor equipment.

One of the overarching goals of the contract is to ensure printing is environmentally and fiscally sustainable while meeting the needs of the university community. This will include consolidating redundant and costly devices in favor of more efficient and environmentally friendly equipment and processes. 

As a first step, IT and Xerox will be conducting a full inventory and assessment of current devices that are installed across UMS campuses. Over the course of the next six to eight weeks, Xerox will be conducting on-site assessments to map locations with an IT representative to develop a recommendation of equipment.

A campus team will review these recommendations and make adjustments in collaboration with Xerox and key stakeholders to ensure the campus investment in equipment is maximized.
