Posted by West McDonald on Jun 25, 2018 10:42:07 AM

I’ve worked with a ton of dealers over the years helping them with their managed print programs.

Posted by West McDonald on Feb 27, 2018 8:53:34 AM

 I’ve been in the managed print services businesses for over 15 years.  I started before managed print was even a thing.  Back then the only way people bought toner and service was by buying cartridges and service packs.  The market looks a LOT different today and for those that were lucky enough to make their careers in this space it’s been a wild and rewarding ride!  My own career has taken me from selling device monitoring software to conducting and training others on selling with MPS assessments to leading kick-butt teams at creating marketing campaigns and materials to developing new markets.  To say I’ve been lucky would be an understatement.
