Effective Summer 2019, UNLV has a new contract that will provide and service all office copiers (also known as multifunctional devices) that can copy, scan, and fax. The vendor, Elan Office Systems, is a locally based company and Xerox subsidiary that will provide copiers to all UNLV locations.
While every department has different copying needs and history, most will not see an increase in their copying costs, depending on the type of equipment selected and the number of copies made each month.
All requests for new or replacement copiers must be made through Integrated Graphics Services so a needs assessment can to conducted to determine the best type of copier for a department based on historical volumes and work demands. Every effort will be made to work with departments regarding the appropriate equipment to meet needs and copy volumes, however, changes in equipment should not be made unless there is a demonstrated need. Keeping equipment changes to a minimum is in the best interests of the university and will help keep costs down. Please do not contact Elan directly for equipment.
As in the past, you will receive a bill each month through Integrated Graphics Services.
Your copier will operate more effectively if it is networked. A networked copier alerts you when you need to order toner. In addition, any service problems can be detected early and handled without you losing service.
There is a new procedure for placing a service call via phone or website for repairs or to order supplies. Order a new toner cartridge whenever you install a cartridge. Do not wait to order until it runs low or out.
