Lexmark International has become the exclusive output provider to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in a deal worth more than $30 million over a three-year period.
Lexmark’s Print Management solution has been deployed across the FBI’s optimised fleet of smart Lexmark printers and multifunction products (MFPs) to reduce unnecessary printing, control overall printing costs and provide for strong user authentication, data security and information assurance.
To further lower costs and increase efficiencies, nearly 20,000 printing devices currently in use by the FBI are being replaced with Lexmark’s more efficient colour and monochrome printers and MFPs and connected to the FBI’s cloud IT infrastructure.
Lexmark’s Markvision Enterprise, advanced device management software for networked printers and MFPs, has been implemented to bring greater visibility and consistency to the FBI’s newly optimised output environment in the form of robust monitoring and reporting capabilities.
Lexmark has delivered its Common Access Card (CAC)-enabled printing technology and solutions across 142 FBI locations nationwide in the USA as a subcontractor through Intelligent Decisions, a recognised leader in developing and delivering innovative federal IT solutions to the civilian, defence and intelligence communities.
