Ingram Micro’s PrintSense to sponsor Synaxon Conference
New managed print offerings to be demonstrated at services group’s annual gathering of members and supplier partners
Warrington, 23 March 2015 – PrintSense, the specialist managed print business operated by Ingram Micro UK, has become the latest major name to sign-up as a sponsor for this year’s Synaxon National Conference, which takes place at Staverton Park in Northamptonshire in June.
Launched just over a year ago, PrintSense gives resellers an easy, low-cost route into managed print services by providing a vendor agnostic set of options. All the hard work is taken care of in the background using advanced service automation technology, enabling resellers to offer a professional print management solution to their customers.
Gemma Glen, head of print, peripherals and supplies at Ingram Micro, says that the Synaxon Conference is an ideal opportunity to spread the word about PrintSense: “During the first 12 months of the programme we have learned a lot about managed print and what resellers and customers really need. We’ve now launched a whole range of additional services, which we will be talking about and demonstrating at the Synaxon Conference. We’ll be looking to bring as many members on board as possible and demonstrating the benefits available from the tremendous opportunity that managed print offers them.”
New services include PrintSense.Foundations – a simple, automated toner replenishment service with a 30-day notice period; and PrintSense.Complete – a comprehensive three or five-year service that offers very competitive pricing on leasing of a wide range of hardware options with on-site services and consumables delivery. In addition, PrintSense.Services provides a menu of bespoke and ad-hoc services that includes asset tagging, pre-delivery inspection and installation, Green Button testing, first-line software installation and support, and on-site surveys.
Derek Jones, managing director of Synaxon UK says: “PrintSense is a great fit for Synaxon members. It gives them an opportunity to offer additional value and service to their customers and create new revenue and profit streams with no up-front investment. We think it’s a great idea and we’re thrilled that Ingram Micro’s PrintSense team will be at the Synaxon Conference to demonstrate the potential for Synaxon member companies.”
The Synaxon UK National Conference takes place at Staverton Park, Daventry, on Thursday 18th and Friday 19th June 2015. The central theme for the event this year is Business Success and there will be a strong focus on key areas such as managed services, managed print and security.
