In the Gartner Magic Quadrant report, Lexmark was evaluated on "completeness
of vision" as well as its "ability to execute." According to Gartner, "Leaders
provide MPS to a wide range of customers, including the largest and most
geographically dispersed, so they must demonstrate a truly global reach. They
must demonstrate not only the skills to deliver today's MPS, but also the
understanding, initiative and resources to prepare for tomorrow's MPS. Leaders
characteristically augment the full scope of MPS with a wide range of
added-value services. As a result, they are frequently shortlisted by large
and midsize customers."

Lexmark offers a comprehensive set of managed print services and capabilities
that provide a consistent, global infrastructure to manage devices effectively
and drive significant cost reductions. In addition, Lexmark's dynamic
solutions are customized to bring unique value to each customer when deployed
in an MPS environment. By streamlining complex and dysfunctional business
processes, Lexmark's MPS has the capacity to deliver an immediate return on
investment through increased worker productivity and effectiveness – enabling
Lexmark's customers to better focus on their core business and clients at the
point of service.

Within the last 24 months, Lexmark competed for and won 17 new MPS contracts
with companies listed on either the Global 500 or Fortune 500 lists, which is
all new business to Lexmark. As a trusted source to many of the world's
largest companies, Lexmark also realized a 100 percent contract renewal rate
with its MPS customers in 2011.
