Print Audit And Sharp Business Systems Partnership Makes Big Splash With Leslie's Pools
Calgary, Alberta (October 2008) - Last month, Print Audit and Sharp Business Systems teamed up through the Sharp Partner Program to seamlessly combine their best-in-class hardware and software. Already, the pairing of Print Audit's innovative print management software solutions with Sharp's OSA-enabled multifunction products (MFPs) has proven to be a success for both companies, with print solutions customers recognizing the added benefits of the combined technologies. Most recently, the partnership has resulted in a significant deal with the world's largest swimming pool equipment supplier, Leslie's Pools.
Leslie's Pools selected Sharp Business Systems of Tempe, Arizona over twelve competitors based on the added value that Print Audit Embedded brought to the table.
'In this case, we were working to differentiate ourselves from a dozen other competitors and it was imperative to separate ourselves from the pack,' said Sharp Account Executive Jeff Herman. 'Print Audit's Embedded solution allowed us to add value to our offer and stand out from the competition. We certainly plan on highlighting the solution's added benefits in future deals.'
The contract with Leslie's Pools consisted of nine MFPs and four Sharp P450 printers. In addition, they purchased two hundred seats of Print Audit 5 that will aide in print tracking as well as ten seats of Print Audit 5 Embedded, which will allow the company to track their walkup copying, scanning and faxing.
'Closing this large deal is a wonderful start to our partnership, and solid proof that our products not only deliver what customers are looking for, but that they stand out as more useful and truly different,' said John MacInnes, President and CEO of Print Audit. 'I am thrilled that this collaboration has not only been beneficial to Print Audit and Sharp, but to our customers as well.'
Tightly integrated with Print Audit 5's print tracking features, Print Audit 5 Embedded is a comprehensive tracking and management solution that allows organizations to analyze, reduce and recover costs related to walk-up copying, printing, scanning and faxing. Sharp OSA technology extends MFP applications to a number of vertical business categories and helps businesses to improve productivity, target specific business needs, and ultimately further reduce costs.
