Ingram Micro and SmartPrint Fleet Management join forces to launch ClickMPS to their reseller and channel partners, leading to managed print services on a grander scale
Turnkey Managed Print Services partnership programs for Australian IT reseller.
Ingram Micro in partnership with SmartPrint Fleet Management announced today the launch of the ClickMPS™ Managed Print Services program. This comprehensive program has been forged to assist Ingram’s dealer, reseller and OEM partners in providing independent and holistic Managed Print Solutions, whilst adding value and reducing operating expense of their customer’s print and photocopier fleets.
ClickMPS allows Ingram Micro authorized resellers to create, package and propose Managed Print Services in one tenth of the normal quoting time. “This product has been designed to aid the novice, right up to the experienced MPS professional, with the same synergies as our group of companies to provide all brands of equipment, in-house finance packages, value adds and blended MPS offerings under the same roof.” says Jason Ganis CEO of SmartPrint.
Much of this programs success has been based on meeting the diverse needs of various organizations. “Being 100 percent brand independent, vendor neutral or agnostic means we can truly meet the needs of every client, many of whom have existing mixed fleets of printers and multi-function devices.” Ingram Micro and SmartPrint’s neutrality allows them to deliver flexible services that can be tailored to an individual customer’s requirements. This gives clients comfort that SmartPrint is making the best recommendations and most economical device choices while both meeting their current needs and accommodating their future development.
Desmond Ling, Ingram Micro’s Senior Director, Consumer, Components & Print, says the partnership with SmartPrint has been under development for a while.
“We’ve been looking for a solution that enables our Reseller partners to provide Managed Services across diverse fleets of printers and photocopies from all our Vendor partners. With ClickMPS, we can provide a simple, easy-to-use, web-based solution that makes it easy for Reseller partners to build Managed Print Services solutions for their customers – saving them time, money and delivering an environmentally friendly solution in the process,” he says.
Ling says Ingram Micro is setting up a new Print Services group to support the new partnership and provide a dedicated team to aid Reseller partners in creating Managed Print Services solutions for their customers.
