HP has just announced that industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc. has named the company a “leader” in its 2011 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services (MPS) Worldwide.
In the Gartner Magic Quadrant report, HP was evaluated on its “completeness of vision” as well as its “ability to execute.”
The Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace, at and for, a specific time period. In this Quadrant it depicts Gartner’s analysis of how particular vendors measure up against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by them.
Gartner classifies leaders as organizations or companies that provide MPS to a wide range of customers. These include the largest and most geographically dispersed, so organizations must be able to demonstrate a truly global reach. This involves not only demonstrating the skills to deliver today’s MPS, but also the understanding, initiative and resources to prepare for tomorrow’s MPS. Leaders typically enhance the full scope of MPS with a wide range of added-value services.
HP maintains that its Managed Print Services can help organizations save up to 30% and more on overall printing costs. It also offers some customers a HP Printing Payback Guarantee. Simply put, HP offers to study a business, assess its particular needs and then project potential savings. If the organization doesn't reach those savings within twelve months after implementation, it makes it makes up the difference.
With more than 3,000 customers worldwide, HP MPS says that it provides a clear path for turning printing and imaging into a vital, value-added asset.
John Tomesco, Vice President, Enterprise Market Development, Managed Enterprise Solutions, Imaging and Printing Group, HP said:
“Organizations across a range of industries are automating document and workflow processes through HP MPS to achieve their strategic objectives. We believe today’s industry analyst recognition confirms the inherent value that HP delivers to help enterprises do more with less and free up their time to focus on their core business and customers.”
