OfficeWare Achieves HP PartnerONE Elite Status for Third Consecutive Year

HP OPS Elite partner status is highest designation given by HP in its Imaging and Printing Group

Louisville, KY, April 29, 2011 --( OfficeWare announces it has achieved HP Office Printing Solution (OPS) Elite partner status for the third consecutive year, making the company one of only a few partners in the nation to receive this certification.

HP OPS Elite partner status is the highest designation given by the Imaging and Printing Group at HP. HP OPS Elite partners are highly skilled in selling HP imaging and printing products and solutions, and managed print services (MPS), improving customers’ overall efficiencies in printing and imaging infrastructure optimization, and management and document workflow. The Elite status recognizes OfficeWare’s consultative approach to solving business problems with industry experts who are skilled in simplifying complex printing and imaging solutions.

The HP OPS Elite status partner not only recognizes, but rewards HP partners for making the investments necessary to build and maintain an MPS practice, providing businesses with the right combination of talent, process and solutions to meet its business objectives.

“As one of the top managed print services companies in the region, we are proud to have received this designation for the third consecutive year,” said Rick Maxwell, president/CEO of OfficeWare. “This achievement demonstrates OfficeWare’s commitment to improving our customers’ office productivity while reducing their operational expenses.”

As further evidence of this commitment, OfficeWare recently formed a Print Manage Division as a result of its strategic acquisition of Print Manage, Inc. The new division provides companies the opportunity to do more with less. It enables companies to gain control by centralizing their printer fleet administration; identify, document and control document production expenses; and eliminate unauthorized spending. It also provides companies with billing flexibility and consolidated invoicing for all equipment, service and consumables for all departments. The program also helps eliminate capital expenditures for new or replacement equipment.
