today announced that a growing list of organizations,
including Office Depot, Pace University and Global Experience
Specialists Inc., are choosing HP Managed Print Services (MPS) to
streamline information workflows and manage their printing

The company also announced it has secured a leader position in the
recent “The Forrester Wave(TM): Managed Print Services, Q2 2012”

Among the criteria cited by Forrester that led to HP’s MPS leader
position were global delivery, mobile solutions, print policy
software, and support for enterprise engagements and information
technology outsourcing.

HP MPS increases profit margins and enables new initiatives
Depot, a leading global provider of office supplies and services,
strives to meet customer demand and stay ahead of market trends.
Recently, internal demand for the printing of posters, banners and
other large-format items rose 30 percent. To make the most of this
opportunity, Office Depot needed a more efficient way to monitor
printer devices across multiple locations, track their usage and
manage the supplies.

“With HP Managed Print Services, HP provided HP’s Designjet Z2100
Photo Printer series, HP Web Jetadmin software and a constant
inventory of fresh ink supplies, which helped us streamline the
management of our fleet nationwide, and gain visibility into billing
and insight into usage analytics,” said Colleen Fitz-Gerald, senior
manager, Fleet Operations, Office Depot. “The streamlined management
allowed Office Depot to increase profit margins and enabled new
marketing initiatives to help grow our business.”

HP MPS improves manageability and reliability; reduces environmental
impact and costs
Pace University, a private university in New York,
was challenged to meet growing printing needs for 13,000 students
across three campuses. Students printed more than needed because free
printing, including a cover sheet with every print job, was
unlimited. Added to that were unreliable printers that were difficult
to manage and properly supply to meet student demands.

HP Managed Print Services helped improve the reliability of printers,
provided the flexibility to print from multiple locations, and added
capabilities such as copying and scan-to-email. With the HP
Controlled Print solution and the availability of toner at reduced
cost, the university was able to set a reasonable price for student
printing and reduce paper waste by at least 100,000 sheets per

“Pace University is very excited about the advantages this print
solution has provided. It has enhanced the way we deliver our
printing services,” says Tom Hull, chief information officer, IT
Services, Pace University. “HP effectively manages every aspect of
our printing needs, which allows internal IT resources to be
refocused on other strategic-business issues.”

Accelerated workflow simplifies print management for increased
Global Experience Specialists Inc. (GES), a leader in
exhibition, event and retail marketing services, wanted a print
management solution that would reduce printing costs, manage its
print infrastructure end to end and improve its document workflow to
boost business productivity.

“HP MPS helped consolidate our devices by almost two-thirds, while
providing new capabilities, including scan-to-email, network faxing
and more. By moving to the HP LaserJet M4345, HP LaserJet M9050 and
HP LaserJet M3035xs multifunction printers, GES’ U.S. division was
able to cut printing costs while increasing the availability up-time
of our print fleet to over 97 percent,” said George Hines, chief
information officer for Viad Corp, GES’ parent company. “HP’s ability
to scale the MPS solution to meet GES’ changing needs was a key
differentiator. HP delivered the benefits we expected and gave us the
flexibility to tailor the program to our unique needs. Based on our
initial success with HP MPS, we’re actively extending the solution.”

Additional information about how businesses can benefit from HP
Managed Print Services will be provided at HP’s premier client event,
HP Discover, taking place June 4-7 in Las Vegas.
