MeadWestvaco (MWV) has chosen to renew its partnership with Xerox (NYSE: XRX) for IT management services as the global packaging company continues to grow in targeted packaging and specialty chemicals markets.
Partners since 2006, Xerox will extend its services for MWV via a new five-year contract to include telecom expense management, ERP system management and additional hosting for MWV’s Brazil business. Xerox will also assist MWV in migrating core IT functions to the cloud, in addition to continuing existing services including hosting, network management and desktop support.
To accommodate MWV’s expansion over the years, Xerox has helped to modernize the company’s computing platforms; centralize its internal communications through a unified, global email system; and protect secure information with a disaster recovery plan that included building a new infrastructure in a second Xerox facility for catastrophic resiliency.
“Xerox will continue to address MWV’s expanding global needs from its operations in the United States, Europe, Asia and India,” said Chad Harris, group president, IT Services, Xerox.“By migrating to cloud-based services, we’ll be able to apply operational scalability and agility to MWV wherever and whenever they need it,” said Harris. “Our depth of global offerings will help MWV with current expansions into Brazil along with future needs.” About Xerox Since the invention of Xerography more than 75 years ago, the people of Xerox have helped businesses simplify the way work gets done.
