Lexmark has been awarded a position on RM3781 Lot 3 for Managed Print and Content Management Services in the UK
Lexmark International, Inc., a global imaging leader, today announced that it has been awarded a place on the highly competitive Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Framework Agreement. The RM3781 framework offers public sector and central government customer solutions for printer/copier, managed print and records information management services.
Awarded in partnership with YPO and Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO), the milestone enables Lexmark to deliver a fully outsourced service focused on supporting centralising, securitising and standardising office outputs in the UK.
This framework has been developed with the objective of meeting the increased customer demand for digital solutions and to provide organisations with the tools to not only increase efficiency but also to realise cost savings.
Specifically Lexmark will deliver customers with the capability to digitise workflows and cut carbon footprints. Through the optimisation of a more flexible print strategy, customers will have the opportunity to discover more efficient approaches to the entire printing operation across their organisation.
The new CCS framework has been designed with the intention of becoming the principal procurement agreement across the public sector, including central and local government, police authorities, NHS bodies and universities.
“At Lexmark, we’ve always been in the business of providing best-in-class solutions, and the fact that we’ve been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Services Government Framework is a testament to this,” said Danny Molhoek, General Manager North West Europe at Lexmark. “We already work with a host of government bodies and public sector institutions providing managed print and content services, enabling them to digitise workflows. This new framework allows us to continue doing this work as more organisations look to make this move from paper to digital. We’re thrilled to have been chosen for this framework and can’t wait to get started.”

The CCS is responsible for improving government commercial and procurement activity. It operates as a trading fund under the Government Trading Funds Act 1973 and works to bring together policy, advice and direct buying; providing commercial services to the public sector and saving money for the taxpayer.
