Two major names in the printing business have today announced their successful selection as preferred suppliers in the Government Procurement Service Wiser Public Sector Print Services Framework, writes Linda Endersby.

The framework, set to replace the current print services agreement in April was split into two lots, Managed Printing and eCommunication Services and Operational Print Services.

Both Canon and Konica Minolta have been selected in both categories,  with a potential market of up to £1bn over the four years of the agreement.

"We are delighted to have been successful in securing supplier status in two significant Lots on the public sector print framework," said Rob Ferris, Country Channel Director, Business Imaging Group, Canon UK & Ireland.  

Ferris continued "Canon's engagement model is services-led and we applaud the key decision makers within the framework for recognising that public sector organisations don't just need hardware & software suppliers, they need partners who deliver solutions that meet their specific challenges and needs."

James Goody, Director of Direct Sales for Konica Minolta Business Solutions said, "Our place on this major public sector purchasing framework agreement has been won in the face of some very challenging competition.

"The agreements set a very high bar for equipment performance and customer intimate service delivery, enabling us to provide improved profitability and efficiency into our customers' environments." said Goody. "We will meet the exacting environmental standards demanded in the contract through our proven green managed print services, technologies and methodologies."
