Lexmark announced the availability of Lexmark Cloud Print Infrastructure (CPI), a complete as-a-service solution that utilizes IoT and cloud technologies to take its industry-leading managed print services (MPS) offering to a new level. With Lexmark CPI, customers access a modern, secure print environment through a subscription service in which they pay for print capacity rather than owning and managing the physical infrastructure.
This completely new approach to enterprise print enables IT departments to reduce costs by removing infrastructure and management burden, while ensuring a higher level of user experience. For purchasing departments spending valuable time managing RFPs and complex billing, the offering provides flexible subscription pricing options.
“As organizations seek to remove IT complexity, Lexmark Cloud Print Infrastructure as a Service builds on Lexmark’s MPS leadership to simplify how our customers approach print. We can now take on a full range of their print infrastructure challenges, allowing the customer to focus on the print capacity they need while we take care of the rest,” said Allen Waugerman, Lexmark senior vice president and chief technology officer. The Lexmark CPI offering simplifies print, from acquisition to IT management and user support:
Data-based Print Fleet Design provides customers a more standardized and connected fleet of devices. Using best-in-class benchmark data, Lexmark hardware deployment plans address current use patterns, security protections and future print and scan needs, resulting in a custom fleet design that will scale to meet changing needs. The devices are owned and managed by Lexmark, providing potential flexibility in operating expense accounting.
