Leveraging MPS in 2021
powered by Sounder


Traditional printer sales may have slowed down in 2020 due to workforces going remote. However, new health and security-conscious Managed Print Services (MPS) have seen a recent spike.
 
In episode 172 of B2B Tech Talk, Keri speaks with Ingram Micro’s senior program manager of MPS, Paul Sin, about…
 
  • What types of printers are getting attention in 2021
  • The industries that are buying printers right now
  • The MPS portal
  • Where Paul sees tech going in 2021
 
Security is going to be a continued focus as more printers become remote.” — Paul Sin
 


The new world of MPS

Many U.S. companies have settled on not going back into the office. That means fewer large printer purchases. On top of that, the businesses who are going back into the office are trying to avoid congregations of people around the printer.
 
But the world still needs printers. Printing is still a $10 billion business.
 
Instead of commercial-sized printers, organizations are looking for smaller, more secure printers for employee home offices. Additionally, offices need MPS that supply touch-free options.
 
Specifically, Paul points out that SMBs don’t just need more printers for their remote workers—they need to protect their networks at the right cost.
 


Printing at the right cost

With more SMBs needing secure printing options, it’s important to keep their budgets in mind. Fortunately, Ingram Micro MPS offers several different financing options for customers and their end users.
 
Plus, there are Ingram Micro financing pros who specialize in MPS and are more than willing to speak with your customers.
 


Technology in 2021

Paul sees security continuing to be front of mind through 2021. Moreover, he predicts more service providers transitioning to subscription-based pricing models.
