GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation and Sales & Marketing Solutions International Announce Strategic Partnership
Cedar Rapids, IA (August 2009) - GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation and Sales & Marketing Solutions International (S&MSI) announced a strategic partnership to deliver a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to a Managed Print Services offering. The guide will help GreatAmerica office equipment channel partners transition into a more effective and sustainable business model.
GreatAmerica will license training content and implementation tools developed by S&MSI. S&MSI President, Steven Power will also train GreatAmerica representatives to assist their customers in implementing a Managed Print Services initiative.
“This partnership represents a substantial commitment by both parties and allows us to allocate time, focus, and resources to the GreatAmerica program,” said Mr. Power. “It is a perfect fit between two organizations that have demonstrated a track record for delivering quality programs and ultimately increased sales results for channel partners.”
Greg VanDeWalker, Sr. Vice President of Strategic Relationships at GreatAmerica Leasing, said Mr. Power “can help fill a void we see in the marketplace with our dealers. Seminars and software are not enough to create and implement an effective MPS program. Dealers need an ongoing and thorough strategy to be successful and that is what we will deliver.”
