Photizo Group’s Transform conferences have become key events for providers of managed print services. This year’s global
conference is taking place in Louisville, Kentucky on June 2-4.
Those lucky enough to attend can look forward to three days of inspirational presentations covering every aspect of selling, pricing and delivering managed print services. Those who can’t make it can get a taste of the issues under discussion by reading our interview with Photizo Group CEO Ed Crowley, starting on page 17.
PrintIT Reseller has attended many MPS conferences and at every one there have been questions from the floor about the effect that MPS could have on product design, in particular the possibility of developing printers with significantly longer-lasting consumables. Earlier this month, Epson provided its own answer to the question by unveiling the revolutionary Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS), covered on pages 25 and 26. Offered exclusively as part of an MPS, RIPS has ink capacities of 75,000 pages per colour, enough for several years of uninterrupted printing.
RIPS has enormous possibilities for MPS providers, as long as they can convince customers that inkjet is a viable technology for business workgroups – now and for years to come. Their task will be made somewhat easier by the fact that HP, too, has just launched its first enterprise inkjets (see page 28).
As Everton threaten to take Arsenal’s Champions League place and Liverpool challenge for their first title in 24 years, could the natural order in office printing also be about to change, with inkjet at last superseding laser as the dominant technology?
