Scantron Named “Best Independent Managed Print Services Provider”

Sponsored by Businesswire

Scantron Corporation, a global, technology and services driven company whose experts provide comprehensive assessment and technology solutions, was named the 2019 Best Independent Managed Print Services (MPS) Provider by the Global Managed Print Services Association. This award recognizes Scantron as a best-in-class organization selling managed print services, not owned by a manufacturer.

The MPSA is the only international, independent and nonprofit MPS organization that embraces all industry participants in a collaborative environment. Unlike many, pay-for-play awards and recognitions, the Global MPSA MPS Leadership Awards are judged by a panel of industry leaders, chosen from the MPSA membership and led by members of the MPSA Executive Committee. This ensures impartiality and adherence to guidelines. Awards granted by the organization are merit based and truly represent the quality of each winner.

“Being recognized as the Best Independent MPS Provider is a great honor,” said Vern Kathol, VP Hardware and Managed Print Services, Scantron. “It is especially exciting, because it reinforces the message that Scantron is an expert in more than assessment solutions; we are experts in technology as well. We’ve been a leader in technology service and support for more than 35 years and a provider-of-choice for managed print services for more than 10 years. It’s rewarding to know that our years of expertise are being recognized in the industry.”

Through state-of-the-art printer monitoring software, Scantron customizes solutions that are individualized to an organization’s unique print environment. This allows companies of all sizes to rein in consumable costs, monitor all devices, and enjoy just-in-time replenishment of consumables, all while strategically planning printer fleet management. By outsourcing these services to Scantron, companies can focus on other priorities and provide finance departments real, tangible data needed to understand print-related costs.

In addition to managed print services, Scantron is a nationally-scaled provider of technology solutions, that also includes managed IT services, hardware support services, and IT products and project services to multiple industries, with a team of dedicated, technology-enabled experts. Embodying its slogan, SMART STARTS HERE, Scantron has a state-of-the-art network operations center and more than a 165 highly-trained field service technicians located in nearly every major metro—all of which supports nearly 300,000 IT endpoints and devices.
