“It makes sense for managed service providers to offer managed print services, it is the next step in their evolution becoming a total solution provider.”
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2011
According to a recent MSPmentor survey, only about 20 percent of MSPs focus some of their efforts on MPS (Managed Print Services). Industry experts Gartner are predicting 20% to 30% annual growth in the MPS market sector through 2014. To meet the current and anticipated demand for MPS solutions DOCUWISE has launched its MPS Reseller program.
“The DOCUWISE MPS reseller program is a hybrid cloud technology that allows MSPs, VARs, and Service Professionals to plug into a turnkey managed print solution and offer it to their customers instantly,” says Ron Harris, DOCUWISE CEO. “Many MSPs have resisted offering MPS because of the difficulty plugging into a total solution or being tied to a specific OEM. The DOCUWISE MPS Reseller program solves these problems as the first non-OEM comprehensive MPS solution.
"The DOCUWISE MPS solution software PESOTM (Print Environment System Organizer) includes everything a Reseller needs to manage, control and ultimately reduce the cost of any print environment,” states Harris. “PESOTM manages the entire print environment including options for a full CPC (Cost per Copy) or TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) solution, and it includes remote print device monitoring (our proprietary DCA). The solution also includes high quality document output supplies (toner and ink), national on-site service and repair (break/fix or contract), components, fusers and maintenance kits, logistics (just-in-time inventory and next day on-site service), no-cost core return (recycling), on-line order processing and account management, and an on-line print cost calculator, training, technical, sales and marketing support," explains, Harris. “We have eliminated the barriers to entering the MPS market.”
"The truth is that customers are bleeding money on unmanaged toner expenses, paying disproportionately for printer resources, and don’t know there’s a better way. You can show them." Dan Neel, CRN.
"CIOs are looking to minimize the number of vendors they work with so they’re constantly seeking a single vendor to handle as many different aspects of the IT proposal as possible. Being able to provide as many different services as possible is a strong differentiator and competitive advantage for any service provider.” Curtis Franklin, Jr., MPS Insights
“DOCUWISE is positioned to be a key player in the growth of managed print services in the U.S. working with MSPs that service small to midsize businesses to deliver MPS solutions,” says Keith Woodard DOCUWISE Reseller Channel Manager. “It makes sense for managed service providers to offer managed print services, it is the next step in their evolution becoming a total solution provider.” Current trends and industry analysts expect the demand for a total plug-in MPS solution to grow rapidly. An example of this trend was seen in January 2011 when Konica Minolta Business Solutions purchased MSP All Covered, who provides Managed IT services in 22 U.S. cities, to expand Konica Minolta’s access to the managed services market to push their managed print services. “DOCUWISE’s MPS Reseller program will allow MSPs to meet the rapidly growing MPS demand over the next several years,” states Woodard.
