To determine the vendors that lead the market in each category, Keypoint Intelligence invited the leading document imaging OEMs to participate in an in-depth study that covered areas such as portfolio of offerings, primary differentiators, go-to-market strategy, ability to accommodate remote employees, and much more. Keypoint Intelligence analysts then applied a proprietary scoring rubric to determine the winners.

“Managed services are playing an increasingly important role for office equipment manufacturers and their channel partners,” said Jamie Bsales, Director of Smart Workplace & Security Analysis at Keypoint Intelligence. “In addition to better addressing customer needs and helping solve their pain points, a broad portfolio of services can convert a ‘transactional’ customer into a ‘relational’ one, which opens the door for ongoing sales in all areas a vendor offers.”
