WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Purdue University announced Thursday that it has entered an agreement with Xerox for its on-campus print management.
Purdue said its goal is to reduce costs, improve productivity and enhance services for the campus community. The operational changeover will occur Monday, Feb. 3.
Purdue officials said there are 16 employees affected by the transition. However, they have accepted on-campus positions with Xerox. On-campus locations will continue to be in the Purdue Memorial Union, also known as BoilerCopyMaker, and the south side of campus at 698 Ahlers Drive.
In a press release, Managing Director in the Office of the Executive Vice President for Business and Finance, Rob Wynkoop this move follows an analysis and campus-wide review of the Printing Services operations.

Wynkoop said the this agreement will save the university on average 10 to 15 percent, compared to previous pricing for printing services.
