S.P. Richards Host MPS Executive Forum
Atlanta, GA (Feb., 2011) - S.P. Richards Company recently hosted a Managed Print Services (MPS) Executive Forum in Atlanta. This new dealer forum for discussion and idea exchange was the first in what will become an ongoing series of meetings that will be held quarterly in different regions of the country.
“The purpose of these meetings is to foster a network for independent dealers to share best practices and benchmarks in their development and implementation of a Managed Print Services program with their customers”, stated Kimberly Dumont, SPR VP of Technology Products & Services. “We view MPS as crucial to the future success of independent dealers looking to maintain and grow their ink and toner business. It’s important that we facilitate dealers getting involved and our PrintSmart™ program provides dealers a flexible approach to getting started.”
Dealers attending the forum left with a more in-depth understanding of MPS and an excitement to increase their ink and toner volume with the PrintSmart™ program. “I found the forum to be both informative and worthwhile” stated Jim Entwistle, co-owner, Village Office Supply. “PrintSmart is a program our dealership can utilize to not only defend our business but increase our ink and toner business.”
Dealers should contact their local SPR Sales Representative or Jennifer Huckeba at email@example.com for information on Managed Print Services and details on how to get started with the PrintSmart™ MPS program.
