ROCHESTER, NY, Oct. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - Xerox (NYSE: XRX) has been placed by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services (MPS) Worldwide.
Developed by Gartner to evaluate how well technology providers are executing against their current vision, the Magic Quadrant is a proprietary research tool, which provides insight into a market's direction, maturity and participants.
Remaining the market leader in MPS, Xerox is helping businesses use an MPS strategy to meet the changing needs of their workforce - from supporting mobile workers and bring your own device policies, to securing confidential data, and simplifying complex business processes with new ways to work with both paper and digital information.
New assessment and reporting tools from Xerox's acquisition of NewField IT are helping capture the growing demand from small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) - demonstrating the potential for up to 30 percent cost savings, improved energy efficiency, and other productivity benefits powered by MPS. To make it easier for SMBs to benefit from MPS, this year Xerox created a dedicated Channel Partner Operations organization that gives IT resellers more access to customized MPS offerings. In addition, by working with partners like McAfee and Cisco, Xerox is making it easier for enterprises to securely manage print within the existing IT infrastructure and support system.
"MPS has evolved beyond simply managing printed documents, it's about solving business problems. We believe Xerox has a leadership position because we've added expertise in business process and IT outsourcing to improve the way people work," said Andrew Morrison, senior vice president, Xerox Managed Print Services Business.
