Xerox Corporation

This is a strategic agreement for multi-function copiers & printers. This agreement with Xerox provides for printing, copying, and scanning as a service with no time commitments on hardware at a cost based strictly on your actual usage. All service provided by Xerox, including needs assessments, installation, maintenance service, toner, staples, and toner recycling is included in the cost per page price of 1.2 cents for black and white images and 4.4 cents for color images.

Over 800 Xerox multi-function devices (MFDs) have been installed across U-M since installations began in March. Installations were paused most of October, in order to make necessary adjustments to the Xerox engagement and installation process. The changes made, which include additional communications and further coordination with local IT support, will improve the overall experience for the university community as the transition from Konica to Xerox continues. Installations have resumed for Michigan Medicine locations and we expect the full deployment schedule to resume in December.

Another key change was updating the Xerox Services Portal. A “Training” tab has been added to the portal with links to self-guided training presentations for each of the Xerox MFD models and focused how-to documents for users of the Xerox MFDs. In addition to the Training tab, an “IT Solutions" tab has also been added for those that provide IT support to the Xerox MFD users. This tab will have links to technical bulletins, the latest Xerox drivers, and other useful information. 

If you have not logged into the Xerox Services Portal previously, you can self register by filling in your name, user name, and umich.edu email address.

Sustainable Purchasing

Xerox Corporation has identified sustainable items within their product line that are available for purchase by the University.           

Sustainable products/service:            

Xerox’s commitment to environmental sustainability and technical innovation served as the platform for the University’s Managed MFD and Printer solution, which was developed in collaboration with the University and Xerox.  

Xerox’s technical innovations have provided an accumulated sustainability knowledge and understanding that benefits the University.  By incorporating products and services through this program, the University is reducing its expenses and it’s print related carbon footprint.

All Xerox products that are part of the Michigan program have been rigorously tested and certified by the University’s respective IT organizations.  The devices are all Energy Star compliant, regardless of configuration, speed and capabilities.  Finally, the new Xerox products are reducing the University’s print related energy consumption by approximately 47% over current deployed devices.

Additional sustainability goals for the program and the Xerox technology enabling those are outlined below.

Sustainability Initiatives:

  • Xerox has focused on environmental performance and sustainability - long before it was popular to do so - in order to positively affect operations, offerings, customers and communities.
  • In the 1980s, Xerox was the first company to introduce power-down features in equipment to save energy, and the first to make two-sided printing a standard on systems, significantly reducing paper waste.

  • Xerox was the first in our industry to evaluate the health effects of toner and conclude that there are no issues when used as intended.

  • In the 1990s, Xerox pioneered remanufacturing for office equipment and helped shape the EPA’s ENERGY STAR® program for imaging equipment. Established in 1991, their Environmental Policy and its principles still guide them today.

  • All of Xerox’s major manufacturing sites certified to ISO 14001 in 1997, within one year of that standard’s development.

    Xerox continues to use innovation and leadership to drive environmental performance through their value chain.

  • Xerox was among the first technology companies to set a company-wide target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In 2012, at the conclusion of their 10-year Energy Challenge program, emissions were cut by 42% and energy consumption was reduced by 31%. Their new corporate-wide goal is to reduce energy consumption by 20% by 2020 – from a 2012 baseline.

  • Xerox was among the first to issue comprehensive environmental requirements to their paper suppliers. In 2006, they began a partnership with The Nature Conservancy to advance forest management practices and improve sustainable forest management programs.

  • The Xerox Sustainability Calculator for Managed Print Services estimates the environmental impacts across the product lifecycle.

  • Xerox joined the EPA SmartWay Partnership. Its purpose is to improve fuel efficiency for reduced greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution associated with product transport.

  • In 2011, Xerox established corporate short term (2015) and long term (2020) “waste-free” goals.

  • Xerox was one of the first companies to have EPEAT-registered imaging products.

  • ConnectKey ®, an award-winning software system embedded in Xerox multifunction printers (MFPs) reduces toner and ink spend while reducing wasteful printing through default settings like printing multiple pages on a single page.

  • In 2015, The Xerox® Print Awareness Tool, which uses gamification to change print behaviors and engage employees in sustainability efforts, was a recipient of the third annual Environmental Leader Product & Projects Award.
