Business process optimization & automation, the core of our cover story and researched by InfoTrends, spotlights four vertical markets. Studies on: Health Care, Legal, Financial Services and Education Industries have historically proven to be the most paper intensive, and printing and paper usage among these areas appears to remain steady. However, we may be beginning to experience certain shifts away from paper due to cost, behavioral changes; government initiatives and processes redesigned in order to create efficiencies for the business. Read up on what's happening today in these areas for these specific markets; it's truly vital & credible information. In addition, read the interesting story shared by a dealer in "Lessons Learned When Getting into Managed IT Services" along with another fine article on Finding MPS Providers in Under 30 seconds (yep!) for strategic steps to aid your efforts to succeed. Not to mention (but I will!) the informative piece on "Is Anyone Guarding Your Color Profitability" where print/color/wide format opportunities abound. Read on and enjoy!

Lessons When Getting Into Managed IT Services

by Milton Bartley, ImageQuest
Five years ago, I purchased an office equipment company - primarily for its customer base - and essentially started the company from scratch. Like many office equipment dealers, I recognized that a services model would be important to the future sustainability of my company.

Understanding the Positive Impact of GPS Fleet Management

by Darrell Leven, US Fleet Tracking
Considering the world we all live in, why should we not leverage technology wherever possible to lower expenses and increase profits? We learned long ago that gathering meter readings by phone or customer visit was not cost effective.
