Celebrating 15 Years of Comprehensive Copier/MPS/MNS Channel Salary Surveys7 Jan, 2016
USA - January 7, 2016 - Since 2000, Copier Careers® has been collecting responses from industry professionals to provide a snapshot of how well they are compensated, how satisfied they are in their careers, and how well their needs are aligning with the needs of their employers. These surveys have collected over 136,700 responses in the past 15 years and this valuable resource is made freely available at www.copiercareers.com/salary_surveys.shtml. In 2015, Copier Careers® issued four Salary Surveys to Sales Representatives, Service and Operations Managers, Sales Managers, and Service Technicians. Key findings from the 2015 surveys:
- Now that MPS has made recurring revenue a significant portion of most sales comp plans, keeping sales representatives motivated to hunt for new business has become a formidable challenge for dealers.
- On average, service managers work nearly 60 hours per week; it appears that this is the new normal for both sales and service managers in our industry.
- The selling sales manager role has gained greater acceptance over the past few years. Many sales managers are now managing smaller, more nimble teams.
- Ongoing shortages of qualified technicians make this a strong job market for the 60 percent of technicians who say they're either actively or passively searching for new employment.
