Ingram Micro UK has launched its new Managed Print Service PrintSense.
The distributor says its new service is a game changer in the Managed Print market, which is a significant growth area within the SMB market.
“We’ve identified that this revenue and profit stream has been difficult to lock down by the IT Reseller channel without extensively investing in infrastructure, therefore resellers are potentially missing out on opportunities. We have been developing this solution with our partners over the past 12 months and we are excited at the opportunities this will bring to the channel,” said Ingram Micro Head of Category for Print, Peripherals and Supplies, Gemma Glen.
“PrintSense uses Ingram Micro’s skills and scale to help our customers increase sales opportunities and, in turn, enable end-users to gain the peace-of-mind that their print requirements are constantly monitored by the most advanced fleet automation technology and a reliable engineering service.”
Users of PrintSense will not be tied into agreements with a particular vendor. Instead, subscribers will be able to take over an existing fleet on a cost per page model, including all the consumables and break fix, without having to refresh hardware. Ingram boasts this removes the need for an expensive investment upfront for end users.
Already supporting Ingram Micro’s PrintSense service are Kyocera, HP, Lexmark, Canon, Brother, Epson and Xerox. Software which automates supplies replenishment and technical support, is provided by EKM, a global industry leader in managed print.
