As part of its corporate commitment to supporting higher education, Canon Solutions America Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., announces the continuation of its support of the University of Notre Dame’s communications and athletics operations.
As part of the partnership, which began in 2015, Canon Solutions America provides print solutions that cater to the unique needs of Notre Dame Athletics. From game day activities to document management, Canon Solutions America delivers support with on-site resources to help keep Notre Dame in its position as a leader in academics and athletics.
“We are committed to supporting the students and faculty through our advanced technologies and services, community initiatives, student programs, and athletic activities,” says Peter P. Kowalczuk, president, Canon Solutions America. “Aligning with Canon’s commitments to innovation and sustainability, we are happy to continue helping Notre Dame reach its environmental and community goals.”
“Canon Solutions America and the University of Notre Dame came together in 2015 and implemented a well-managed and maintained printer fleet coupled with streamlined invoicing and a focus on savings and sustainability initiatives. We now stay together in 2020 with the signing of a five-year contract extension allowing us to continue working together on today’s and tomorrow’s successes,” adds Gilberto Carles, senior director, University of Notre Dame Procurement Services. “Canon Solutions America’s Higher Education Advisory Team understands our environment and the challenges that we face as an institution. Through the partnership, the University has accomplished specific financial, productivity, and environmental goals.”
In addition to print devices, services, and solutions provided by Canon Solutions America, Notre Dame Athletics uses high-quality broadcast lenses from Canon U.S.A. to help enhance the University’s coverage and broadcasting of home sporting events.
Canon Solutions America’s support for Notre Dame goes beyond supplying devices and service, as seen through Canon’s and Notre Dame’s common position on environmental and sustainability initiatives. Through its printing program that encourages double-sided printing, the University reports it is saving resources at a much higher rate than typical industry standards.
