Virtulytix Selects Channel Partners for 2018 Leaders Index
LEXINGTON, KY (July 19, 2018)—Virtulytix has selected 7 independent, channel partners around the world as leaders in managed print services (MPS), based on demonstrated leadership in MPS.
The Leaders Index for MPS Channel Partners is a collection of select, independent MPS partners from around the world that are regarded as the gold standard in managed print and document services. Virtulytix classifies this index of elite providers from across Africa, North America, and Europe, as a lens to view the current landscape of MPS.
“As the managed services landscape reaches maturity in many markets, we continue to see a demonstrated need for measurable best practices and benchmarks built on real-world results by recognized leaders in managed print and document services,” said Ed Crowley, CEO for Virtulytix. “These MPS leaders not only demonstrate leadership in MPS, but a genuine interest in the pursuit of best practices that benefit the industry and the customers it serves.” This years selected leaders are:
- Doing Better Business
- Green Office (Pty) Ltd.
- OneDOC Managed Print Services, LLC
- SmartPrint, Inc.
- Qualpath, Inc.
Measuring “True” Success
To compete in the near future, channel partners will need to take the right steps to be competitive. To help move in the right direction, it is critical to know the real level of performance when measured against the ‘best of breed’ competitors in the industry.
Manufacturers will need to know the composition of their channel partners by measuring them using objective, independent measurements rather than just sales revenue. Sales may be great today if that is the only measurement of success, but what if the partners are the ones who get displaced? Can manufacturers afford to depend on the partner’s subjective perception of how competitive they are?
To help the industry measure channel success, we created our Leadership Index using select, innovative channel partners in North America, Europe, and Africa. This includes benchmarking 300 key business metrics including sales, operations, and service performance. The trends are impressive for channel partners with an average of 12 years offering services. This includes $389,340 average revenue per employee and 96% customer retention ratio.
Only partners that Virtulytix determines to be among the best in the world are invited to participate in the Leaders Index. These aggregate results serve as a tangible set of benchmarks other partners can compare their own performance against.
The following chart shows the Leaders Index class of 2018 and how they rank according to the Percent of Fleet MPS versus Percent of Revenue from MPS as a part of their business.
