OKI Data Americas Selects PrintFleet as Software Component Provider for its Total Managed Print Offering
Ontario, Canada (July/Aug 2009) – PrintFleet Inc., a global leader in managed print software and supporting professional development services, today announced their relationship with OKI Data Americas, where PrintFleet is a software component provider for its Total Managed Print offering.
Total Managed Print from OKI Printing Solutions, is a comprehensive set of tools, programs and infrastructure designed for dealers and solution providers to help them develop or grow their managed print services (MPS) business, with three levels of engagement to fit various stages of MPS adoption. Beginning with the entry-level program, PageStart, resellers can immediately begin selling, servicing and supporting MPS engagements. With this simple turnkey program, that bundles hardware, accessories, consumables, service, billing and remote monitoring, partners will have access to higher margins and monthly revenue streams while eliminating the customer’s costly burden of service and support.
“We conducted exhaustive research on 21 key criteria from various software vendors,” stated Dena Bernard, Director Customer Satisfaction and Services at OKI Data Americas. “We selected PrintFleet because they have an understanding of our business needs and met our expectations when we partnered with them on the development of our RapidScan assessment tool, which is now part of our PageStart engagement level. Through this relationship and our extensive work to build our MPS infrastructure over the past several years, we are confident Total Managed Print will equip our partners with the necessary components to develop and grow their MPS business.”
Rolling out shortly after PageStart, OKI Printing Solutions will add FleetAssist and MPS Full Access to its Total Managed Print offering, as well as the industry’s only MPS Ready line of color and monochrome printers.
“This is yet another tremendous stride for PrintFleet and the reseller channel alike,” stated Norman McConkey, President and CEO of PrintFleet Inc. “Our experience with OKI Data Americas began with the launch of the RapidScan Assessment Solution, powered by PrintFleet Suite, some 12 months ago. Since that time, they have remained committed to delivering a comprehensive program that is unique to the channel. PrintFleet looks forward to continuing to support Total Managed Print by OKI Printing Solutions with PageStart.”
