Clemson University selected Ricoh to provide Managed Print Services (MPS) for the entire University. In the past, we have had to utilize multiple vendors in order to fulfill Clemson’s network and desktop printing needs, making the management of these devices and services challenging and not always the most cost effective choice for the University. Pursuant to a Clemson University contract awarded via the State of South Carolina Managed Print Services Request for Proposal (RFP), for the next 5 years, Ricoh will be managing the service, consumable supplies and devices for the entire University.
The MPS program offers a significant overall cost savings to the University. These savings, along with the opportunity to introduce new technology while significantly reducing our carbon footprint, prompted the Administrative Council to approve moving forward with Ricoh as the MPS vendor.
With the MPS program, Clemson will be able to utilize Ricoh’s technology and expertise to reduce hard costs, provide a stable and consistent support system, and reduce the use of non-renewable resources. These goals are consistent with Clemson’s 2020 plan to become one of the top universities in environmental sustainability and ultimately become a carbon neutral University by 2030.
