Scottsdale, AZ. – July 23, 2015 – MWA Intelligence (MWAi), a master value added reseller (MVAR) for SAP Business One and leader in enterprise resource planning software (ERP), continues to expand their FORZA and SAP Business One client base by adding Des Plaines Office Equipment (DPOE).

60 years ago, Vince Miceli started DPOE with a dream and quickly that dream grew into a prosperous business which adapted throughout the years into a highly innovative and forward thinking imaging channel dealer and leader. Since then, DPOE has established a long and successful track record in the conventional print imaging industry and, in recent years, has enjoyed successes in the managed services (MS) and managed print services (MPS) fields as their next generation of growth.

“The imaging channel has been a very successful channel for decades which is a real testimony to the spirit and dedication of thousands of independent dealers, partners, and OEM’s. I am proud and honored to welcome DPOE, one of the most successful dealers in the country, to the FORZA and SAP Business One family. The industry has been challenged by old and rigid software for years. MWAi, for the first time in our industry, has empowered the independent dealer with a seamless and open architecture platform. FORZA provides dealerships control of the technology, data, analytics, and dashboards that welcomes and encourages new business growth and innovation,” said Michael T. Stramaglio, President and CEO of MWA Intelligence, Inc. “I am honored that DPOE shares our philosophy and will play a prominent role in transforming the entire industry.”         

DPOE has transformed their business over time to better serve the needs of their customers. DPOE has added multiple product lines and introduced a network team dedicated to installing and servicing multifunction devices throughout the Chicago land area. Additionally, they added an entirely new IT department that specializes in offering customers networking, software and IT support. Every year, DPOE leads the charge with their specialized managed services along with the support of their customers.

“DPOE was at a critical growth juncture and we began to quickly realize our current business system could not effectively grow with our present and future business needs,” said Chip Miceli, President and CEO of DPOE. “FORZA, built on SAP Business One, proves to be the only ERP in this industry that can grow with our business.”

MWAi FORZA with SAP Business One is a complete, integrated ERP that provides transparency and instant visibility into operations. The FORZA solution helps dealerships to better unify, manage, and control their entire business across financials, sales, customers, and operations. Together, MWA Intelligence and SAP will provide office technology and imaging channel businesses the ability to make smart IT decisions, improve future performance, and achieve long-term success.
