HERNDON, VA -- June 26, 2003 – SAVVIS Communications (NASDAQ: SVVS), a global managed IP and managed hosting services provider, announced it won a contract from Xerox to provide managed hosting services.
Xerox uses its Web site (www.office.xerox.com) to assist customers seeking information on its copiers, printers, scanners, fax machines, advanced multifunction systems, and toner supplies — as well as its document management software, document outsourcing and consulting services.
Using an innovative online marketing response function, Xerox customers are able to interface with the company’s Web site, resulting in simplified product orders, inventory queries and invoicing.
A key element in SAVVIS’ win of the contract was its ability to host Xerox’s operations from the SAVVIS data center located in Reading, as well as its ability to demonstrate failsafe levels of network connectivity and security.
“SAVVIS’ win of the Xerox U.K. Ltd. contract is another example of the traction SAVVIS is gaining in the U.K. market with a diverse range of high-end customers,” SAVVIS Managing Director of EMEA, Richard Warley, said. “SAVVIS’ in-country NOC, combined with the strength of our global network and hosting centers, are important differentiators for us as we expand our U.K. and European base.”
