MWA Intelligence, Inc. fulfills commitment to acquisitions strategy with the purchase of Imaging Portals, Inc.
The acquisition of Imaging Portals, Inc. (IPI) advances MWA Intelligence’s leadership position as the enterprise asset management solution provider in the fast-paced officeequipment M2M market.
Scottsdale, Az., September 7, 2006 — MWA Intelligence, Inc. (MWAI), a leading
Intelligent Service, Workforce and Assets management solutions, announced the acquisition
of Imaging Portals, Inc., a company with technologies tailored around automated meter
collection and device status monitoring.
With the acquisition of IPI, it is clear that MWA Intelligence will broaden
its already formidable
Intelligent Assets solution suite. This is an exciting opportunity that will launch best-of-breed
asset management solutions for the office equipment industry and others to come. Leading-
edge wireless, network and software solutions not only collect real-time, business-critical data
such as cost-per-copy information automatically, accurately and in a timely manner for
customer billing, but allows for intelligent asset management and remote device diagnostics.
Information such as device performance, location, average monthly volumes, service call
history, parts and consumables usage and more are invaluable information for office
equipment dealers to run a more efficient and profitable organization. The combination of
both companies’ technologies not only supports any make or model of the millions of
copier/printer devices at customer sites, but reintroduces the need to deliver full, end-to-end
integration of company’s business processes and its ERP/CRM and other systems.
Automated meter reading without the need for human intervention is mandatory in today’s
marketplace to deliver better customer service while driving cost out of the business.
