FXP to launch managed services tool in NZ

Fuji Xerox Printers (FXP) aims to launch its Page Pack application within months here, as part of its managed print services programme.

Page Pack was launched across the Tasman in 2008, and ANZ marketing manager for FXP, Brad Monsbourgh, says the tool has performed successfully there. He and local business development manager for strategic accounts, Colin Hewett, say the vendor needs to ensure Page Pack will work for the local market, and to customise it for use here, before it is released. They are working toward achieving this within two to three months.

PagePack is designed to make companies’ printing costs predictable and simple to manage, and allows partners to retain control of customer accounts.

The application scales for use in companies in companies of up to thousands of users, and provides for remote diagnostics and reporting via a web portal. Partners can use it to help customers manage print product fleets comprising different devices in different locations.

Meanwhile, the company has shifted its Auckland premises to High Street in the CBD, a larger space than it previously had within its parent company’s offices, Fuji Xerox, in the suburb of Ponsonby.

The vendor recently celebrated the opening of the new office with partners.

Monsbourgh says the larger space has allowed it to include a demonstration showroom for use by partners and customers.

FXP has maintained the local number-three print vendor ranking it held last year and says the company has grown 163 percent in the past year. It holds the number-two ranking in Australia and wants to achieve that position here as well.

Last year, the company says New Zealand was its top performing country in the Asia Pacific region.
