OfficeMax Launches Cloud Service Offerings

New Services Help Provide On-Demand Access to Files Using Many Mobile Devices, From Virtually Anyplace at Any Time, To Help Businesses and Consumers Expand How and Where They Work

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OfficeMax® Incorporated (NYSE: OMX), a leader in office supplies, technology and services, announced today that it is making cloud service solutions available to customers across its stores and U.S. contract business to help organizations and consumers expand how and where they work.

OfficeMaxWorkplaceSM, the U.S. contract business for OfficeMax, has launched new cloud services powered by Xerox®, making OfficeMax Workplace the only business-to-business office supplies and solutions provider to add Xerox's leading-edge cloud services to its holistic suite of work-better solutions for business customers. And starting in February, OfficeMax stores nationwide will provide access to MiMedia® cloud services for consumers and small businesses. The two cloud service programs allow OfficeMax to provide businesses of all sizes and consumers with a cost-effective way to access, manage, share and recover files from many mobile devices. 

The new service also builds on OfficeMax Workplace's mission to help customers drive efficiency and cost savings through innovative products, services and solutions tailored to the unique needs of their workplace.

"Medium to small businesses are increasingly finding that the cloud can offer them technology solutions that allow for consolidation of separate applications, and reduced on-site support and software/hardware purchase," said John Kenning, executive vice president and president of OfficeMax Workplace. "Our new cloud service offering makes these businesses competitive and offers previously unavailable technology solutions that are cost effective, agile and flexible."

For small businesses and home consumers, MiMedia cloud services available through OfficeMax stores will provide an easy-to-use way to automatically back-up, store, access and share their files on demand – including many popular business files and presentations, and even music, videos and photos for personal use.

"Cloud storage isn't just for large organizations. More entrepreneurs and consumers are using mobile devices to create content, and then leveraging the cloud as a preferred solution to store, access and share data that smart phones and tablets create," explains Michael Lewis, executive vice president and president of Retail at OfficeMax. "We're pleased to provide these innovators with access to sophisticated yet easy-to-use cloud solutions that don't require IT staff to set up or manage." 

OfficeMax Workplace Cloud Services Powered by Xerox

The cloud-based services for business launched by OfficeMax Workplace and powered by Xerox deliver software and related applications through off-site data storage, allowing businesses and employees to gain access to their computers – with a similar screen, look and feel, and even many of the same applications and files on their office computers – from virtually anyplace at any time. Additionally, organizations can control much of their hardware, server, storage and networking management tasks from one streamlined online dashboard. Xerox's cloud-based mobile device management service allows organizations to realize cost savings while simplifying how they identify, manage, secure, track and recover data across many employees' work-related mobile devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets. OfficeMax Workplace provides access to trained technical representatives to answer questions and help organizations develop individualized cloud-based solutions.

MiMedia Cloud Services Available at OfficeMax Retail Stores

MiMedia is the only retail-based cloud services provider to offer nine key high-demand features in one package, including automatic file back-up; cloud storage; real-time streaming across more than 100 photo, video and audio music formats; and easy file sharing across more than 20 social networks. The service also includes access to MiMedia's apps for iPad®, iPhone® and Android® for an easy-to-use interface while on the go. Trained OfficeMax store associates are available to help small businesses and home consumers select a MiMedia service package that best suits their digital needs.
