Photizo Group Selects Channel Partners for 2016 Leaders Index
LEXINGTON, KY (February 14, 2017)—Photizo Group has selected 11 independent, channel partners around the world as leaders in managed print services (MPS), based on demonstrated leadership in MPS.
The Leaders Index for MPS Channel Partners is a collection of select, independent MPS partners from around the world that are regarded as the gold standard in managed print and document services. Photizo Group classifies this index of elite providers from across Africa, Canada, Europe, and the United States as a lens to view the current landscape of MPS.
“As the managed services landscape reaches maturity in many markets, we continue to see a demonstrated need for measurable best practices and benchmarks built on real-world results by recognized leaders in managed print and document services,” said Ed Crowley, CEO for Photizo Group. “These MPS leaders not only demonstrate leadership in MPS, but a genuine interest in the pursuit of best practices that benefit the industry and the customers it serves.” This years selected leaders are:
- Auxilio, Inc.
- E O Johnson Office Technologies
- Green Office (Pty) Ltd.
- M2, an SCC business
- OneDOC Managed Print Services, LLC
- Principal I Ltd.
- Qualpath, Inc.
- SmartPrint, Inc.
- Solution WorX
- Word Processing Services, Inc.
Measuring “True” Success
To compete in the near future, channel partners will need to take the right steps to be competitive. To help move in the right direction, it is critical to know the real level of performance when measured against the ‘best of breed’ competitors in the industry.
Manufacturers will need to know the composition of their channel partners by measuring them using objective, independent measurements rather than just sales revenue. Sales may be great today if that is the only measurement of success, but what if the partners are the ones who get displaced? Can manufacturers afford to depend on the partner’s subjective perception of how competitive they are?
To help the industry measure channel success, we created our Leadership Index using select, innovative channel partners in North America, Europe, and Asia. This includes benchmarking 300 key business metrics including sales, operations, and service performance. The trends are impressive for channel partners with an average of 11 years offering services. This includes $245,112 average revenue per employee and 95% customer retention ratio.
Only partners that Photizo Group determines to be among the best in the world are invited to participate in the Leaders Index. These aggregate results serve as a tangible set of benchmarks other partners can compare their own performance against.
The following chart shows the Leaders Index class of 2016 and how they rank according to the Percent of Fleet MPS versus Percent of Revenue from MPS as a part of their business.
