Xerox seals Barclays contract


16 December 2004 – London (UK): Xerox, along with computer services provider Electronic Data Systems (EDS), has sealed a $40 million contract to provide printing, copying and fax services to British banking giant Barclays.

Under the five-and-a-half-year deal, Xerox and EDS will manage Barclays’ procurement, service and maintenance, help desk and user support for more than 2,250 devices across 200 Barclays offices throughout the UK.
