Grand Slam Technology Event A game winner for M.O.S.!
Batter up! M.O.S. Imaging Systems, located in Miami Lakes, FL, recently held
a customers appreciation and technology presentation at their corporate office
which included their vendor partners and two special guest stars; former Florida
Marlins’ Manager, Joe Girardi, and second baseman and 2006 All-Star player, Dan
Uggla, a contender for the National League’s Rookie of the Year.
Far from rookies, M.O.S. is one of the most successful providers of total
document management solutions in business today, and from the moment the doors
opened to their event, “fans” poured in to check out the latest and greatest in
today’s technology. Who were the players? Sharp Document Solutions Company of
America, Konica Minolta, Kyocera Mita, NetCompass and Columbia Soft, all of
which pitched a perfect game for clients and prospects.
For nearly twenty years, M.O.S. Imaging Systems, one of the largest
independent Sharp providers in the USA, has been engineering document solutions
that improve productivity while streamlining workflow. They offer a wide range
of imaging solutions, from digital copiers and fax machines, to fully integrated
network printers and document management systems.
In fact, M.O.S. President, Luis Gonzalez, decided a few years back that his
company would go beyond the box. His business would actually develop solutions
to integrate with his clients’ business applications. Just over three years ago,
M.O.S. began investigating the possibilities that existed in the legal vertical
market, a lucrative niche market to fill. After much deliberation and research,
they created a product to be used with any MFP known as the ImageRouter (www.netcompass.us),
whereby documents are scanned at a provided kiosk and are previewed with a large
touch screen display, meeting the specialized needs of the legal market. Bobby
Mallow, a Sales Manager at M.O.S., commented, “This UNIX-based device
strategically increases productivity while lowering a client’s overall operating
costs, and it’s less susceptible to viruses.”
The innovative company executes great product and events, and served up not
only Marlins sport legends for their guests, but a line-up of “heavy-hitter”
vendor partners with new product and services to share.
Sharp Electronics had lots to say on The New Direction in Color Communication
which was presented by Mitch Cooper, Sharp’s Regional Sales Manager. Onsite for
viewing were Sharp's new MX-series color multifunctional printers which combine
the duties of color copier, network scanner and printer, and a new line up of
imagers from 23 to 70 ppm. Additionally, Greg Nash, Systems Business Manager
for Sharp, presented Copiers that Talk, based on their new roll-out on OSA (Open
Systems Architecture), which previewed at ITEX 2006. The system is intended to
make a copier/printer the gateway to a seamless integration from print and scan
to the network, and is synchronized with Microsoft Exchange to allow users to
scan directly into an existing document management system.
Additional seminar presenters were from Columbia Soft, producers of Document
Locator. Joel Mazza, VP of Sales, Eastern Region, along with Matthew Guanciale,
Application Engineer, informed customers on Instant Document Archive and Access,
highlighting document management software to capture, manage, and share email,
paper and digital documents while cutting costs and improving productivity.
“This offering provides a huge ‘back-end piece’ for SMB to large enterprise
clients,” said Mazza, “and fits well into M.O.S. document management solutions
for those looking to build their integrated portfolio.”
Breakthroughs in Production Printing, presented by Richard Carrasquer, Dealer
Sales Manager of Konica Minolta, spoke on the power of the workhorse bizhub;
PRO production devices that combine professional production features with
advanced device and workflow management functions, including speed, automatic
finishing, flexible scanning, and superior output quality to meet a wide variety
of printing needs.
Rounding out the M.O.S. team of vendor providers was Kyocera Mita. Network
Solutions Manager, David Corbo, spoke on the topic, Never Buy Another HP Toner
Again. He cited statistics from analysis firm, CAP Ventures, who predict company
spending on printer consumables will skyrocket in the next five years, with
monochrome and color laser toner cartridges, fueled by color laser printing,
reaching $9.5 billion by 2007 in the U.S. alone. Kyocera plans to reduce
printing costs by up to fifty percent.M.O.S. Sales Manager, Dave Ward, added,
“Most organizations don’t have a good grasp of their output when it comes to
printers and need to be educated with reports and workflow analysis. There is a
big opportunity here to cut expenses.”
Nathaniel Horenstein, Director of Solutions Sales and Services at M.O.S.,
couldn’t have been more impressed by the overall turn out and feedback from
their guests. “We feel we did our best in educating our clients on how they can
increase productivity and manage their document workflow, and how we still can
save them money on their bottom line.”
Before heading home, customers gathered in the beautiful M.O.S. showroom with
then Marlins Manager, Girardi, and All-Star player Uggla, where they
graciously smiled for complimentary “remembrance” photos, fielding yet another
“homerun” for the seminar event.
“Overall, today is about educating and sharing our newest equipment and
services with our guests,” cited Samantha Jarrell, Director of Operations.
“M.O.S. is about making business better.” That, for the record, is quite a good
business philosophy from champions who know how to create a successful home team
