The Managed Print Services Association (MPSA)
announces that The Imaging Channel has joined the Managed Print Services Association as the first media company to commit to Foundation membership. The Imaging Channel is the information resource for the managed print services industry. It is part of 1105 Media’s Office Technology Group, which produces the popular Managed Print Summit and World Expo conference geared to the document printing industry. These are just a few of the publications and conferences that make up 1105 Media’s portfolio of properties.
“As an information resource for the managed print industry, we understand the importance of education, information sharing and networking. MPSA provides all of that to its members, allowing for a centralized platform for those in the industry to connect,” said Amy Weiss, Editorial Director at The Imaging Channel. “Education and information sharing are the most important keys to success in any industry. Often, businesses view themselves as rivals rather than partners; associations like MPSA break down those walls and provide a forum for communication that is critical to the industry's success and survival.”
“Having a new Foundation member representing the media is a milestone for the MPSA. Having that new member be of the caliber and reputation of The Imaging Channel and 1105 Media is a powerful endorsement of the value and importance of this association to the industry,” said MPSA President, Joe Barganier. “We look forward to working with The Imaging Channel to build a stronger MPS marketplace.”
An Information Resource in Tune with MPS Industry
The Imaging Channel is an integrated resource for the print and imaging industry that brings together leading market information, business concepts, strategies, and people in managed print. Through this channel, the knowledge of MPS experts and practitioners can be leveraged to provide a centralized organization where dealers and resellers can find the best information, partners and products for their program.
“Being a part of the MPS community is a huge benefit for The Imaging Channel, both immediate and long term,” Weiss continued. The Imaging Channel strives to be the voice of the MPS industry, and to do that, we need to both be accessible and have access to industry members. We’ll gain that contact through our association membership. MPSA membership allows us to interact with those on the front lines and ensure that we're meeting their needs. Having the ability to reach out to players in the industry and learn what issues are important is key.”
