FedEx Office Forges Alliance with Canon, HP
FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko's) has formed an alliance with Canon U.S.A. and HP to create a network of printing and imaging capabilities, giving customers access to leading-edge technologies and a state-of-the-art machine fleet.
Beginning next month, FedEx Office will utilize Canon and HP as sole-source providers in their respective printing device categories, and will deploy more than 12,000 new Canon and HP machines across more than 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada. The majority of the document imaging equipment will be installed over the next 12 months, laying the foundation for a range of new products and services.
The new network will reportedly provide benefits such as:
• Leading technology: The new devices that will be deployed include Canon’s imageRUNNER Advance multifunction products (MFP) and imagePRESS digital press systems. In addition, HP is delivering innovations in the form of online and cloud printing applications.
• Consistency: The devices will be the same across most locations, creating a uniform customer experience with strong printing quality and reliable equipment operation. Specifically, advanced software tools from Canon will enable FedEx Office employees to monitor the installed device fleet to ensure optimum working status and reduce potential down-time delays.
