OKI Data Americas to Demonstrate Cloud-Based Managed Print Services Offering, Serve as Silver Sponsor of ConnectWise IT Nation 2012

Mount Laurel, NJ (November 6, 2012)OKI Data Americas announces its participation and Silver Sponsorship of the ConnectWise IT Nation 2012, taking place November 8-10, 2012 at The Hilton Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria in Orlando, FL. There, OKI will demonstrate its proprietary, cloud-based Managed Print Services (MPS) offering – Total Managed Print™ – in booth 302 and at a breakout session entitled, “Converging, Colliding & Connecting - Managed Print Meets Managed IT,” which will be held in the Vesey Room on Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 2:15 – 3:15 p.m. local time. OKI Data will also serve as the exclusive MPS sponsor of the Level Platforms Next Level Summit, taking place on November 8, 2012.

The breakout session will be led by Tim Brien, Director of Managed Print Services for OKI Data Americas, and will focus the gradually fading line between the worlds of managed IT service providers and office technology dealers. Brien will address where the industry is heading and how Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can better prepare their businesses for continued success within the channel.

OKI Data will also present the features and functionality of its Total Managed Print™ (TMP) 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, consisting of nine customizable modules, enables businesses to reduce overall expenditures while improving efficiencies and employee productivity, removing the burden of print ownership by providing a cloud-based, brand and device agnostic print fleet management tool.

OKI's proprietary TMP solution helps SMBs realize immediate and long-term savings by generating new and recurring revenue streams while helping customers save money and optimize their print environments. The implementation of OKI’s comprehensive MPS offering helps organizations drive continuous improvement of business processes, workflow and day-to-day operations through 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.

“OKI Data is pleased to serve as a silver sponsor of the annual ConnectWise IT Nation conference, and demonstrate our unique MPS solution in our booth, at our breakout session, and as a platinum sponsor – and exclusive MPS sponsor – of the Level Platforms Next Level Summit,” said Brien. “We look forward to providing attendees with useful information on how to evolve their business model through our Total Managed Print™ solution, and how we can help save customers upwards of 30 percent annually through print fleet optimization.”

The ConnectWise IT Nation conference and Level Platforms Next Level Summit provide Managed Service Providers (MSPs), IT professionals and business owners with an opportunity to gain valuable insight from industry experts at breakout sessions and keynote presentations. The event’s exhibition will allow attendees to discover the latest tools and services from key vendors to help build their business and target new revenue opportunities.
