Source Technologies Announces Image Star as US Distributor

Source Technologies has selected Image Star as a new authorized distributor for its line of secure check printing solutions in the United States. Through this agreement, Image Star will support Source Technologies dealers with inventory, distribution, and dropship fulfillment services across the company’s full line of secure MICR printers, toners, warranty plans, and check printing software.

Source Technologies provides convenience-oriented self-service kiosk solutions and automated MICR check printing solutions for financial, retail, government, and general enterprise customers. An established leader in secure print technology, Source Technologies has been the exclusive co-development partner of all Lexmark MICR solutions since 1996.

Together, Source Technologies and Image Star will partner to reach new dealers for MICR solutions. Source Technologies’ robust technology paired with Image Star’s specialist support for the independent office technology dealer channel will offer a compelling value proposition for new channel partners.

“When we evaluated the field of distributors, Image Star stood out because of their strong ties with Lexmark, their overall print and IT knowledge, as well as the trust they’ve built with their nationwide network of dealers,” said Chris Popper, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Source Technologies. “After seeing our solution, Image Star quickly recognized the security, value, durability, and guarantee of our check printing solution and how it would benefit their imaging dealers. Everyone at Source Technologies is excited to partner with Image Star to distribute our line of Secure MICR check printing products.”

Source Technologies’ distributor relationship with Image Star will tap into the firm’s nationwide distribution network, deep client relationships, and IT and service capabilities to provide best-in-class distribution support for dealers. Image Star clients will benefit from access to Source Technologies’ full MICR print lineup, sales and technical support, and program benefits only available through authorized distribution sources.

“MICR is a natural pathway for imaging dealers to grow into new opportunities at existing accounts,” said Philip Crean, Chief Commercial Officer for Image Star. “With MICR, dealers can offer a complete solution for the full print environment and bring specialist solutions for high-value security considerations. Source Technologies is a true technology leader in this space with the robust solution portfolio, brand strength, and channel support dealers need to win business. We are excited to help Source Technologies expand distribution as we help dealers grow into new solution categories.”
