Exertis RIPS into OA Market with Epson

Exertis has announced a distribution agreement with Epson to provide the Workforce Pro Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) printers to selected resellers.

The business will be managed from the Exertis specialist OA print facility in Norfolk, utilising dedicated OA account managers who will be working with new and existing Epson RIPS customers.

Jamie Brothwell, print general manager at Exertis said: “Epson has a very unique proposition using its business ink continuous feed technology that delivers up to 75,000 business quality prints between ink changes. The WorkForce Pro printers are known for their reliability and provide customers with a low TCO including using up to eighty per cent less energy than competitive colour lasers. We are looking forward to offering these printers to selected resellers alongside our range of specialist pre-delivery and logistical services, and our flexible credit facilities.”

As part of a Managed Print Service, WorkForce Pro RIPS printers can help to create a distributed printer fleet that provides an easy yet secure, high quality, distributed print resource that delivers predictable print costs. In addition, Epson’s Document Capture Pro software enables an automated paper capture and storage process and its Email Print for Enterprise solution enables users to securely send documents to a printer and print directly from any device that can send an email in the office.

Claire Robinson, business director, Epson UK added: “With business inkjet printing continuing to rise, we’ve seen a 40% year-on-year increase in business inkjet unit sales and are now the second largest business inkjet supplier in Europe. As more businesses realise the environmental and financial benefits of adopting inkjet printers over laser fleets, this growth looks set to continue in 2017.

"We are looking forward to extending our existing relationship with Exertis and the specialist services it can offer our reseller channel to continue to grow our market share even further.”
