Canon Awarded Two Important Contracts

Jan. 16 saw Canon U.S.A won two important contracts, one is  NASPO ValuePoint Copiers & Managed Services #140595 state contract; the other is a new contract with the State of Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) # DIR-CPO-4437.

The #140595 state contract for all product categories: A3 and A4 MFPs, production equipment, single-function printers, wide and large format equipment, and scanners.

“NASPO ValuePoint is excited to have made awards on the third iteration of the Copier & Managed Print Services Contract,” said Bart Lemmon, supplier development director, NASPO and NASPO ValuePoint. “The new agreement has expanded the scope beyond just copiers and printers to meet the complex office equipment needs of the states and their users. With the expanded scope and breadth of offerings, we expect to see an increase in participating states that adopt these ValuePoint contracts.”

NASPO ValuePoint state contracts acknowledge solutions that streamline workflow and efficiency for customers and offer the states and local communities the best value technology products and services users can benefit from. Canon received the NASPO ValuePoint Copiers & Managed Services state contract in all product categories, which highlights an array of Canon’s solutions that range from small business to enterprise-level, production print to large format, and software solutions including uniFLOW, Therefore™ and PRISMA. While the contract is held through Canon U.S.A., sales and services are provided through the company’s nationwide network of participating authorized dealers.

Canon Managed Print Services (MPS) integrates the office print environment with IT and business process optimization strategies to provide more comprehensive business solutions. Delivered together with mail, centralized print and scanning centres, Canon’s MPS provides customers with a number of benefits including enhanced security, the improved business process through digital workflow, centralized management of the document output environment and more uniform, cost-effective solutions.

“The office environment has been changing over the past decade, but through software and print technology advances and a managed enterprise-wide approach to delivering print services, Canon is able to provide a new level of efficiency for our customers,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We are proud to be awarded the NASPO ValuePoint Copiers & Managed Services state contract in all six product groups as it reflects the type of high-quality, sustainable products we deliver to our customers across a variety of markets.”

The # DIR-CPO-4437, covers Canon’s full line of imageRUNNER ADVANCE, imageCLASS, imageFORMULA, imagePRESS and varioPRINT solutions and services.

The Texas DIR contract provides state and local government entities, as well as educational institutions in Texas and outside of Texas, with fast, cost-effective means to procure solutions from leading vendors. This contract leverages the buying power of the State of Texas and delivers access to hundreds of products and services at volume pricing. Although the DIR-CPO-4437 is held through Canon U.S.A., the company’s network of authorized dealers provide the sales and services.

With the increased threat of cyberattacks that target sensitive information, securing data is more important than ever before. The Texas DIR contract was awarded to Canon due, in part, to the comprehensive security capabilities and features of Canon’s devices and software solutions. This technology can equip Texas state government, education and local government entities with the tools needed to help secure information, protect against threats, comply with security policies and integrate with network activity monitoring designed to help the customer quickly identify and address suspicious activity.

“Receiving a contract from the Texas Department of Information Resources is a great accomplishment for Canon as it highlights the company’s successful robust product portfolio and pricing,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Covering an array of the company’s high-quality, efficient solutions, from enterprise-level to software services and solutions, this contract showcases our dedication to innovation across a diverse amount of solutions and advanced security features.”
