TORONTO, May 19 /CNW/ - Last spring, Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) introduced its ColorQube(TM) 9200 Series multifunction printer (MFP) with a straightforward proposition - affordable color that lowers the environmental impact of office printing. One year later, organizations around the world say it's true - solid ink technology is making a positive impact on business and the environment.
"The technology behind the ColorQube 9200 Series, along with Xerox's marketing of the solution, has been very well-received in the marketplace," said Angele Boyd, GVP/GM, Imaging/Output/Document Solutions, IDC. "The MFP is answering a definite need for businesses worldwide and is a testimony to the benefits of Xerox's solid ink technology."
Customers using the ColorQube 9200 Series to cut costs and meet their sustainability goals include:
- Corus Entertainment Inc. one of Canada's largest and most-successful
media and entertainment companies, has entered into a five-year
partnership with Xerox Global Services to run its Corus Print Centre.
The deal enabled Corus to replace 240 older print devices with 43 new
Xerox machines, including 30 ColorQube 9202 MFPs.
The MFPs will help Corus reduce costs, increase staff productivity
and build on the sustainability initiatives associated with the
company's new LEED gold-certified headquarters.
- CityCenter (U.S.), an urban destination of hotels and residences,
spas, dining and shopping on the Las Vegas Strip, recently installed
37 ColorQube 9200 MFPs to help meet sustainability goals. The MFPs
generate 90 percent less supplies waste, 9 percent less lifecycle
energy and 10 percent fewer greenhouse gases than a comparable laser-
based product and are located in every property in the development,
including the flagship ARIA Resort & Casino.
CityCenter has achieved six LEED(R) gold certifications by the U.S.
Green Building Council. The solid ink MFPs are just one part of its
commitment to using sustainable elements and practices to create a
healthier environment at CityCenter.
- The ColorQube 9200 Series is helping businesses in Europe reduce
their color printing costs, including Capespan (U.K.), a leading
fresh produce company that installed two ColorQube 9200 MFPs at its
headquarters earlier this year. The MFPs cut the cost of color pages
by up to 62 percent compared to traditional color lasers, without
compromising print quality, saving the company thousands of dollars.
"When looking for new office printing equipment, our objective was to
consolidate the total number of printers, while retaining
productivity levels," said Jeremy Sykes, network manager, Capespan.
"The ColorQube 9200s have accomplished this goal with a lower cost of
ownership and impressive reliability."
The ColorQube 9200 Series will be on display at IPEX 2010, May 18-25 in Birmingham, U.K. Xerox's booth is located in Hall 7.
