BEI Services data along with the other statistical costs data provided by West Point Products will create the most accurateTCO printercalculator in the industry, and will be available exclusively to West Point Products’customers.
“We have made a significant investment to create the industry’s most accurate TCO printer calculator for our customers,” said Ray Loisel, Senior Vice President of Managed Print Services for West Point Products. “We chose to partner with BEI Services because of their overwhelming amount of service and parts statistical data.
