KYOCERA SECURES PLACE ON NATIONAL EDUCATION PRINTER AGREEMENT FRAMEWORK
31 May 2016
London, UK – May 31st 2016: KYOCERA Document Solutions UK, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, has been appointed as an approved supplier on the National Education Printer Agreement (NEPA).
NEPA was set up by higher education and technology experts over 15 years ago to aggregate demand for the printing requirements of higher education. In appointing KYOCERA as one of a handful of trusted suppliers across three of its four available lots, the framework recognises the firm’s high standard of print solutions and education sector expertise.
The NEPA framework focuses on printer-based technology, including managed print services. Higher education institutions using NEPA can expect a higher level of service as the framework selects partners based on their expertise and amount of experience in the higher education field.
The framework is available to all members of the six regional UK University Purchasing Consortia, including: North East Universities Purchasing Consortium; North West Universities Purchasing Consortium; London Universities Purchasing Consortium; Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium; Advanced Procurement for Universities & Colleges (Scotland) and Higher Education Purchasing Consortium of Wales. Other public-funded bodies can access the NEPA framework as associates or affiliate members of the UK University Purchasing Consortia.
The framework has recently adopted a lot structure to more clearly define managed print solutions from traditional printer solutions. KYOCERA’s ECOSYS printers and TASKalfa multifunction printers will be added to the framework.
Pauric Surlis, public sector specialist at KYOCERA Document Solutions UK, said, “We’re thrilled to be appointed on this framework as a clear endorsement of our dedication to higher education organisations. We’re proud of our long tradition in consulting and working with the education sector over the past 25 years to solve print problems and reduce costs. Being recognised as an official supplier will give us the opportunity to extend our existing relationship with UK universities.”
