Executive Insight: Transitioning Into Managed Print Services
By Tim Brien, director, MPS Sales, OKI Data Americas, Inc.

The growth and expansion of MPS continues to gain momentum as more and more customers look to better manage or outsource these services and solutions. In turn, the evolution of the industry has led dealers to migrate toward a service-oriented sales model. Yet many IT resellers still consider the print service space new ground and somewhat daunting. However, tackling the initial hesitation of accessing a company's IT network is the first step in service-oriented partnerships.
