Image Star Joins The Consortium 

Scottsdale, AZ, November 28, 2023 — Stramaglio Consulting announced that Image Star has joined The Consortium, a think tank of imaging industry leaders focused on helping the channel grow and thrive.

Image Star is a nationwide distributor of hardware, software, consumables, and services for the office technology industry. Image Star carries major OEM brands and its own proprietary aftermarket lines for high performance at strong value. With a nationwide distribution network, Image Star reaches thousands of clients across the United States with fast, affordable dropship and bulk freight solutions. As a true partner to the channel, Image Star offers value-added services that help independent dealers compete against enterprise competitors. The IS Connect portfolio of advanced fulfilment capabilities offers technology-enabled solutions to help dealers grow their business, simply their operations, and drive cost efficiencies.

As a new member of The Consortium, Image Star hopes to propel innovation through collaboration with other industry solution providers. Image Star is committed to supporting category diversification through new manufacturer partnerships, to curating value-added services that help independent dealers compete, and to building solutions that streamline complex problems like its Suite Fleet Managed Print solution.

“The Consortium offers a critical platform for industry collaboration and innovation,” says Philip Crean, Chief Commercial Officer for Image Star. “The most important advancements come when partners pool their unique capabilities to build something better than could be accomplished alone. In that spirit, we are truly excited to forge partnerships, nurture new industry solutions, and champion channel transformation with other Consortium members.”

The Consortium is assembled by Mike Stramaglio, President and CEO of Stramaglio Consulting, in order to establish an open collaborative platform that enables the imaging channel to embrace and lead Digital Transformation (DX).

“I am delighted to announce Image Star’s participant to the Consortium. I anticipate their collaborative efforts with fellow business agility solution providers will foster innovation,” stated Mike Stramaglio. “The Consortium’s dedication to championing Digital Transformation within the industry is unwavering, and I believe Image Star’s robust expertise will be instrumental in guiding and collaborating with other leading solution providers in our group.”
