According to Lexmark International, the Lexington-based printer and imaging company, on average, a federal employee prints 7,200 pages per year. That same employee tosses 35 percent of those pages the same day they’re printed. Lexmark wants to help reduce that waste and create savings for Uncle Sam through managed print services (MPS). In its marketing, Lexmark likes to say: “Quite simply, it’s a bundle [of business services] that can save you a bundle.”
Lexmark isn’t so much about ink on paper anymore. In its sales pitches, it suggests its products and services allow customers to “print less and save more.” The company offers solutions that don’t necessarily involve printing. MPS is a mix of software tools, services, custom solutions and strategies. Lexmark sees enormous potential in working with the myriad of federal agencies to reduce their bloat.
