Metrofuser Selected in Manage Print Awards as Logistical Provider to MPS Industry
Roselle, NJ (May 2010) - Laser printer parts manufacturer Metrofuser was awarded a 2010 Managed Print Services Leadership Award last week by the Managed Print Services Association (MPSA). Metrofuser received second place honors as a top Infrastructure Logistical Provider and was presented the award during the 2010 North American MPS Conference in San Antonio, TX. The MPSA used a balanced scorecard methodology based on core abilities, best practices and business benefits, giving the nod to Metrofuser in a highly competitive process.
"We are honored that the MPSA recognized our StockWorksMPS solution and other MPS support programs with this award," said Dennis Fotopoulos, Director of Strategic Business Development for Metrofuser.. He added, "We've worked hard to develop software-independent solutions that empowers our customers to be competitive across the growing MPS landscape no matter which MPS software or strategy they deploy."
According to Jim Fitzpatrick, President of the MPSA, "Metrofuser resolved one of the biggest problems that faces MPS Service dealers, which is how to stock and maintain parts for all of these units and still maintain a pofit margin with uncertain usage?"
The challenge is to have enough service parts available immediately to ensure quick service and break-fix response, but the inventory cost can be prohibitive.
Fitzpatrick added that, "Metrofuser applied some really out-of-the-box
thinking, and developed a parts consignment
"pay as you go" model, outside of their other MPS offerings. The MPSA believes that with these solutions, Metrofuser shows true leadership in our industry. "
The MPSA said the high level of participation and competitiveness between companies showed the strength of the industry. The awards saw 53 companies from 12 countries competing in five categories.
Metrofuser remanufactures and distributes laser printer parts, remanufactured printers and offers service training for HP, Lexmark and Canon laser printers. The company offers a broad array of laser printer products from its Eastern and Western distribution hubs including fusers, maintenance kits, boards, and paper handling assemblies.
