MPS Monitor, the vendor that provides a cloud platform to resellers and managed service providers that remotely monitor and manage printers and multi-functional devices, has opened a UK operation to better support the channel.
The Italy-headquartered firm has set up shop in the town of Westbury, Wiltshire in south-west England, and has put together a new team to help distribute its technology in the UK and Ireland and also the Nordics.
Ian McRae has been appointed MPS general manager in the UK, and has joined Nicola De Blasi, CEO of MPS Monitor, as a board member of MPS Monitor UK. The UK outfit has already been staffed with a team of “experienced and senior print industry experts” with a “deep knowledge of dealers' business and technical needs”, said MPS.
They will provide channel customers with pre- and post-sales consultancy, and help them migrate end customers away from legacy and less-secure systems.
Additionally, MPS Monitor UK has established local accounting and administration services, thus simplifying invoicing and payment processes in local currency for its UK-based customers.
“Print is evolving and needs modern monitoring solutions that deliver a fresh and new perspective to effectively address the ongoing challenges of security, print transparency and cost control,” said De Blasi (pictured). “Businesses in the UK, Ireland and the Nordics are receptive to embracing print management solutions that deliver against their changing requirements. This makes the UK a terrific place to invest in order to respond to growing demand from businesses located in these countries.”
McRae added: “Hybrid print models and cloud-based print monitoring have become the template for modern organisations globally. Against that backdrop, both service providers and their customers will value MPS Monitor’s solution, as it will deliver enhanced security, deeper data insights and a highly productive user experience, resulting in more value than they have seen before.”
