ECi FMAudit™ and Office Document Consulting, Inc. Form MPS Strategic Alliance

Joint customers will be able to sell MPS in the field using a tablet device

Fort Worth, TX—Wednesday, October 30, 2013  ECi Software Solutions (www.ECiSolutions.com), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced a strategic alliance between its FMAudit™ managed print services (MPS) software and Office Document Consulting Inc. (ODC). FMAudit customers will be able to perform an MPS analysis and develop a strategy to engage the sales process faster using ODC’s MPS in a Tablet™. The service provides a tablet that is fully customized and preloaded with all the resources needed to sell MPS, including a drag-and-drop feature for mapping that eliminates the traditionally long period of time associated with printing each device data page and manually mapping devices. 

“We are very excited about this new strategic alliance,” said Kevin Tetu, President of ECi FMAudit. “This will provide our customers with an easy-to-use solution that produces great results. We’ve had many requests for a tool specifically for MPS sales teams and now we have one.” 

Data analytics gathered from FMAudit are pre-populated in the tablet, making it easy to analyze current costs and develop a proposed cost-per-page MPS program. During the assessment phase, prospects can see a live demo of MPS industry statistics and processes specific to their business needs. Sales personnel will be able to provide analysis in the field using today’s technology, reducing the time from traditional assessments and in turn, increase closing rates. 

“We are pleased to announce our new relationship with ECi FMAudit as we look to expand our value-added services,” said Mike Lamothe, President of ODC. “MPS in a Tablet will provide a unique blend of FMAudit, DOCassess, MPS Documents, presentations, videos and e-learning, all managed by an industry-specific CRM so information for particular customers is always at hand.” ODC was named “Best Software Provider” for 2013 by Managed Print Services Association.
