The Enterprise Print Services division of Xerox Canada signed a $40-million, 6-year deal with the University of British Columbia, which is to include Xerox building a “near-site document production facility for high-volume print requirements.”

Xerox Canada estimates the 6-year deal, focusing on document and print services across all University of British Columbia (UBC) campuses, will save the school about $8 million – based on a Six Sigma operational approach. UBC has a student population of 50,000 on two major campuses in Vancouver and Kelowna.

"[The contract] involves nearly every aspect of the document lifecycle including printing, copying, scanning, faxing, design and delivery of print materials as well as electronic storage and retrieval,” said Pierre Ouillet, UBC’s VP of Finance, Resources and Operations. “The move means printing and document management campus-wide will be consistent, affordable and reliable."

According to a Xerox press release, the deal also involves Xerox building a high-volume printing facility for the university, which is to be located off-campus.
