OKI Data Americas to Demonstrate Cloud-Based Total Managed Print™ Portal, Serve as Platinum Sponsor of Photizo Group Transform 2012 Global Conference

OKI to share best practices and insights to help channel partners navigate the evolving managed print services industry

Mount Laurel, NJ (May 17, 2012) — OKI Data Americas announces its sponsorship of the Transform 2012 Global Conference, hosted by the Photizo Group, taking place May 24-25, 2012 at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, FL. There, OKI will demonstrate the company’s proprietary, cloud-based Managed Print Services (MPS) offering, Total Managed Print™ (TMP) in booth 202. Tim Brien, Director of MPS at OKI Data Americas, will participate in an executive panel moderated by Photizo Group CEO Edward Crowley entitled, “Industry Leaders Speak Out!” on Friday, May 25, 2012 from 2:15-3:15 p.m. Eastern.

The annual conference will provide attendees with valuable industry projections for the evolving MPS space. OKI will present the features and functionality of the Total Managed Print™ solution – a modular offering that can be leveraged turnkey as a complete MPS business model, or individually at the component level, to augment an existing business model. The solution generates new opportunities to develop additional recurring revenue streams within existing accounts, along with the ability to procure new accounts through monitoring and managing print fleets and document workflow functions; this decreases expenses and improves output-related efficiencies for end-users.

OKI's TMP solution includes nine customizable modules specifically designed to automate business processes for MSPs and remove the burden of print ownership from the client. By integrating an end-to-end MPS solution that includes a comprehensive fleet assessment, automated strategic business recommendations, continuous remote monitoring of assets and usage, predictive services and supplies fulfillment and consolidated purchase and billing options, as well as a full line of exclusive, MPS-ready hardware, MSPs are able to significantly increase their business growth with minimal upfront investment.

“OKI is pleased to be a Platinum Sponsor of Photizo Group’s Transform 2012 Global Conference and to have the opportunity to interact with industry professionals from around the world,” said Tim Brien. “This event provides us with valuable insight on the changing MPS needs of partners and end-users. We are excited to demonstrate OKI’s commitment to providing innovative and scalable MPS solutions through our Total Managed Print platform for an industry that continues to evolve from hardware-based to service-based solutions.”

Transform 2012 is part of a series of global MPS conferences powered by the Photizo Group. This annual conference brings together more than 400 industry professionals for an educational event featuring more than 30 interactive sessions, expert speakers and networking opportunities. In addition, the conference aims to highlight the evolution from hardware-centric business models to service-based approaches, and the transition to managed print services and beyond.
