Thinking about the people of managed print services poses a complex query: How can anyone pick one or a few special people as standouts within the managed print services ecosystem? Even though MPS, in its current form, is roughly four years old — closer to five — the ecosystem is loaded.
Are there leaders in the field? Sure, everybody’s got one or two models. Do the OEMs drive the concept? In a way, yes; each has some sort of MPS program in either its second or third generation. But who has been an “influencer” worthy of mention?
My quest started simply enough, with a list of player types within the MPS realm:
Pundits and analysts
Managed service providers
Office products retailers
Tablet, PCs and smartphone manufacturers
Stock market analysts
“Print is still relevant” proponents
MPS experts, owners and dealers
Etc., etc., etc.
It’s very crowded here in MPS-ville. Still, should I call out names? Sure.
Once there was nobody, but today there are thousands...READ THE REST HERE.
