Lexmark International has signed a five-year agreement with Anheuser-Busch, a wholly owned subsidiary of global brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev, to provide managed print services (MPS) and deploy a standardized fleet of innovative printers and multifunction products (MFPs) The scope of the agreement spans Anheuser-Busch locations across the U.S., including corporate offices and breweries, as well as Labatt Brewing Company locations in Canada.
Lexmark will manage the printing assets and deliver the following elements of a custom-tailored MPS solution to drive efficiency in Anheuser-Busch’s print infrastructure:
- Assessment and Fleet Optimization: Lexmark will assess print environments, collect data on the current fleet of printing devices and recommend improvements designed to take unnecessary pages out of its environment.
- Hardware Deployment: Lexmark will install color and monochrome printers and MFPs, which will include the award-winning Lexmark X792, X658, T654 and C54x Series of workgroup products.
- Proactive Consumables Management: Lexmark’s printers and MFPs will be configured to notify Lexmark when toner cartridges are low and in need of replacement. Toner will be shipped automatically to locations in a timely manner with no manual intervention needed.
- Advanced Reporting: Lexmark’s Print Release solution will be utilized to capture and provide important end-user usage data that will equip the company with critical information to better understand and make more informed decisions about its print environments.
Lexmark is also the MPS provider for AmBev, a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev and the biggest brewery in South America.
