|Xerox to Manage Print Operations for Kelly Services

|Workforce solutions provider launches managed print services throughout North Am|
|ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 3, 2011 – Xerox Corporation is deploying a managed print services (MPS) strategy across Kelly Services’
North American operations to reduce costs up to 10 percent by better managing
documents throughout its branch network.
The five-year Enterprise Print Services (EPS) contract includes updating Kelly’s fleet of copiers, printers and fax
machines with more efficient technology and reducing IT infrastructure costs through
the consolidation of these devices – from 2,700 to less than 900. Using EPS to
redirect print jobs to the most cost-effective machine, Kelly will also meet environmental
sustainability goals by reducing paper use, power consumption and landfill waste
by more than 50 percent.
“As we continue to look within the organization to streamline costs, this is
another example of unlocking savings while creating the foundation for significant
business process improvement,” said Michael Webster, executive vice president
and general manager, Americas for Kelly Services. “Xerox allows us to provide
quality customer service in a timely manner using current technology.”
By bringing multiple output devices, print budgets and vendor support systems
under Xerox management, Kelly is reducing the time employees spend on print-related
activities and freeing them to focus on the business of providing workforce consulting
and staffing services. Xerox’s change management programs will also help them
adapt to more efficient technology and work processes.
“Our clients are seeking MPS as a business strategy for long-term growth, not
just a simple solution to keep costs in check,” said Stephen Cronin, president,
Xerox Global Document Outsourcing. “Kelly recognizes that a more efficient print
infrastructure is smart business – and an important first step for other operational
