2016 Global MPSA MPS Award Winners Announced

POMPANO BEACH, Fla, July 25, 2016 — The MPSA is pleased to announce the winners of its Global 2016 MPSA MPS Awards.

The Global MPSA MPS Awards were established in 2010 to honor those companies that have excelled in various areas related to managed print. Winners serve as shining examples to the community regarding their commitment and expertise in managed print services (MPS).

An esteemed judging panel of industry leaders, chosen from the MPSA membership and led by members of the MPSA Executive Committee to ensure impartiality and adherence to guidelines, vetted and scored awards submissions. The company scoring highest in each category was deemed winner of the respective award.

“This has been a great year for managed print as a whole,” said Kevin DeYoung, President of the Managed Print Services Association. “The competition this year was higher than ever, pushing our judging panel to the fringes of work activity and evaluative disciplines. To say that it is a great honor to be deemed the best is an understatement. Never have we worked so hard and evaluated so much to determine the best.  Each winner should be very proud of this great achievement as they separated themselves from all others.”
