EBC Group has completed a project with Avon and Somerset Police and Xerox Services to help the force generate print-related savings of at least £650,000 over two years.
Avon and Somerset Police needed to make operational efficiencies to maintain policing levels without dipping into reserves. A joint venture with an IT service provider covering printing was coming to an end. “We took it as an opportunity to see if we could print better for less,” said Steve Hodgson, Head of Procurement.
The force asked EBC Group to help by carrying out a benchmarking exercise on managed print value propositions, quality and compliance with information protection requirements. EBC Group proposed a range of Xerox Services to meet the force’s ambitions. “The work done by EBC Group gave us assurance that selecting Xerox met our internal governance on contract awards,” Hodgson said.
Further print-related efficiency gains through Xerox’s Document Publishing and Production, Hybrid Mail and Intelligent Workplace Services, enabled the force to make savings, increase information security and transform citizen communications.
