LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE: LXK) today announced it has been positioned by leading industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of their "Magic Quadrant: Managed Print Services Worldwide" report (1).
In the Gartner Magic Quadrant report, Lexmark was evaluated on "completeness of vision" as well as its "ability to execute." According to Gartner, "Leaders provide MPS to a wide range of customers, including the largest and most geographically dispersed, so they must demonstrate a truly global reach. They must demonstrate not only the skills to deliver today's MPS, but also the understanding, initiative and resources to prepare for tomorrow's MPS. Leaders characteristically augment the full scope of MPS with a wide range of added-value services. As a result, they are frequently shortlisted by large and midsize customers."
Lexmark is a leader in the MPS market both in terms of developing the services and solutions to add value to an organization and also in operational execution. Lexmark's full suite of MPS offerings provides value not only to the largest organizations, but also to small and mid-sized businesses around the world. Lexmark's industry specific knowledge across a wide range of industries, expertise in streamlining business processes and focus on helping customers print less is what differentiates Lexmark's MPS offerings in the marketplace.
Lexmark has been an MPS provider for more than 12 years and continues to make significant investments in its worldwide infrastructure to ensure the ability to consistently and seamlessly execute and provide added value to some of the most discriminating customers around the world.
"With our comprehensive, scalable MPS offerings, we're giving our customers extensive insight into their printing assets and overall output environment, which is a powerful tool in rethinking and optimizing paper-based processes," said Marty Canning, Lexmark executive vice president and president of Imaging Solutions and Services. "Coupled with deep industry expertise, this is why Lexmark is a trusted MPS provider in helping some of the world's largest global enterprises improve productivity among their workforce, speed up their business processes, and reduce costs."
