How it works


Lexmark owned and managed devices are installed based on industry best-practice data and agreed upon deployment principles, and IoT smart services are activated.


Print servers, queue management, user management and data collection are moved to the cloud and secure cloud print release is enabled.


You choose from simplified as-a-service billing models that work best for your organization including usage-based utility, flat-rate or traditional, purchase plus use options.

This combination of IoT-connected devices, smart services and cloud infrastructure through a subscription simplify all facets of the print environment – acquisition, management and use.

Unburden your IT department 

This unified as-a-service infrastructure enables IT organizations to offload your print environment to Lexmark allowing your IT team to become completely unburdened while providing users with a modern secure print environment.

Cloud and IoT technology ensure continuity of service with redundancy, scalability and high availability. Even for an organization that leverages managed print services to manage their printer fleet, they are often left with time-consuming tasks to support the associated infrastructure, including print servers, queue management and provisioning – CPI removes this burden.

Who knew acquisition could be so simple?

Since your printer fleet is owned and managed by Lexmark, you can focus on needed print capacity rather than device specs. Best-in-class benchmark data and industry-specific insight are used to create an agreed upon hardware deployment plan. No surprises. 

For your convenience, CPI can be delivered with flexible subscription pricing options, including an all-inclusive utility pricing usage model, traditional hardware purchase + utility, or a flat-rate billing. Your choice.

With changing accounting rules, you may gain operational expense flexibility through a subscription service. Consult with your internal accounting team to determine the best accounting treatment for your organization’s print infrastructure.

Enhance user experience with standardized IoT devices

Lexmark printers are designed as modern IoT devices. We apply Big Data analytics to sensor output that enables smart services—allowing us to predict device needs and take preemptive action. This results in uninterrupted uptime for users, including automatic supplies replenishment and predictive service.

With CPI, Lexmark-owned devices provide consistent security protections and user experience across the entire portfolio, from small workgroup to large, copier-like devices. This facilitates the placement of ideal devices across user groups and provides flexibility for users to easily access the features of any device on the network.
