FedEx, Canon, HP Redefining Retail Printing
FedEx Office, an operating company of FedEx Corp., has formed an alliance with Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc. and HP to create what the trio are calling an unmatched network of printing and imaging capabilities, “giving customers access to leading-edge technologies and a state-of-the-art machine fleet.”
The new solutions being collaborated on by the trio, “will enable FedEx Office to offer individuals and business customers a better, faster, more flexible and environmentally smarter way of creating, customizing, printing and distributing their materials - transforming the retail printing experience.”
Beginning next month, FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko’s) will utilize Canon and HP as sole-source providers in their respective printing categories, and will deploy more than 12,000 new Canon and HP printing devices across more than 1,800 locations in the U.S. and Canada. The majority of the next-generation document imaging equipment will be installed over the next 12 months, laying the foundation for a range of new products and services that will help harness the explosion of printable content now accessible to consumers.
