Xerox Named Network Services Provider for San Diego, City to Save Millions
DALLAS – Xerox (NYSE: XRX) will provide the city of San Diego with network, voice and data communications services to help maintain delivery of high-quality customer service to citizens. The five-year, $57 million agreement is estimated to save the city as much as $11.1 million over the life of the contract.
Xerox will transform the city’s existing telecom network infrastructure to a single digital network supporting voice and data communications. The new converged high-speed network will lower the city’s costs and improve service for its employees.
“Our priority is to address the city’s aging network model,” said Jeff Leveroni, CIO, city of San Diego. “Xerox not only presented a forward-looking digital solution, but will also provide the city an outline for enhanced capability, security and growth.”
The ability to apply specific knowledge and understanding of the city’s information technology environment to ensure a smooth and successful transition for this particular project was outlined as a primary objective by the city. Xerox will apply its more than 30 years of experience helping governments manage large, complex programs to guide the transition process and deliver continuous improvement.
“San Diego is a leader in modernizing operations, and Xerox’s implementation of a single, simplified, digital network marks continued progress on this journey,” said Mark Talbot, group president, Americas – Local Government, Xerox. “The network is a backbone that will allow for growth and savings in the city’s information technology environment for years to come.”
Xerox provides a wide range of services for more than 1,500 state and local government agencies across all 50 states.
