The U.S. Navy has awarded Xerox a ten-year contract worth US$94-million for the onboard document needs of its vessels worldwide. The Navy will look to Xerox for the installation, training and supplies procurement of the multifunction printers (MFPs) and production devices across its fleet. 18 Xerox technicians will be deployed with the ships to provide onboard document management services and support.

A major contributor to Xerox’s contract win is the advanced security provided by the company’s office devices. The MFPs are equipped with Xerox Secure Print , which requires a personal identification number for users to release documents. A front-panel PIN code authentication also protects access to the devices’ features.

Onboard use of the MFPs will simplify work processes, such as scanned files being automatically shared via email or network folder, or saved directly to a USB for true portability.

Nearly 16 million impressions are produced annually on these devices, ranging from technical training documents to photo books for families.

“Fulfilling the document management needs of the Navy is a responsibility we take very seriously and will do so with efficiency and responsiveness,” said Kevin Warren , president, U.S. Client Operations, Xerox. “The combination of Xerox’s technology , services and support lets organizations of all sizes simplify their printing needs, allowing them to focus on their core business objectives.”
