Ingram Micro Inc. has announced the expansion of its Managed Print Services (MPS) program.
As a result, the program will now include more partner enablement resources, as well as a broad range of printer options paired with a simple supplies and services model to help channel partners deliver better value to their end-user customers.
“Whether a channel partner is exploring their options, launching a managed print service practice or overhauling an existing MPS offering in order to grow their recurring revenue model more quickly, Ingram Micro is ready to help speed their time to market and time to value,” said Mike Erwin, Executive Director, Vendor Management, Business & Consumer Solutions, Ingram Micro.
Demand for MPS is rising among businesses. Recent research from Transparency Market Research forecasts the MPS market to expand at a 14.8 percent CAGR through 2024. To make it easier for channel partners to capitalise on the MPS opportunity, Ingram Micro’s new MPS program features bundled solutions from leading vendors all under one monthly solution that can be white-labelled and invoiced directly on the channel partners’ behalf. With a monthly service fee that is based on page count needs, service plan and printer type (mono, colour or MFP), the Ingram Micro program is designed with SMB customers in mind.
“Our new MPS solutions are an easy opportunity for channel partners to increase margins by attaching supplies to every single printer sale,” said Erwin. “We’ve expanded and simplified our program so it’s a one-stop shop for managed print solutions with everything sold under a single solution rather than a complicated set of products and services that our partners have to bundle and manage themselves. We want to make it easier and more profitable for our channel partners to grow their recurring revenue with managed print and expand their portfolio.”
