Extract from Interview with MWAi Information Architect Mark McCuen
In this interview extract, MWAi Information Architect and Vice President Mark McCuen talks about what’s ahead for the managed print industry and why membership in MPSA is especially important at this time. Read the full interview with MPS pro Mark McCuen at the MPSA website, yourmpsa.org.
Why is MPSA important to the MPS industry?
MPSA has some of leaders in industry MPS, along with people just starting out. Communication and sharing ideas and best practices within this common ground is the only way to success and innovation. Even if you think you have it all figured out, you can’t do it by yourself. Any organization that brings best practices together is important to the members of that group.
What attracted MWAi to the MPSA?
We are very impressed with what the MPSA is doing. Communication is key to managing the change we are all going through, and it’s productive to gather and connect like minds. We want to help MPS providers as they are putting their services together.
Communication and the Big Picture
We are also attracted because the picture is bigger than MPS, and as an industry, we need people with the right expertise, and then we can grow anything from a core MPS practice to true Managed Services. We are thrilled to be part of this industry, but hold onto your seats because if MPS providers do this right, we have the chance to become major service players in the enterprise.
MPS as an App
As MPS players, we as an industry need to restructure our approach. Customer environments are fixed now, but becoming less so, and in the near future, service technicians and account support personnel will access more data from apps for cost-effective, instant updates.
