ProCopy Office Solutions Announces new branding, logo and website

(Phoenix, Ariz.) Dec. 1, 2015 – ProCopy Office Solutions today announced an entire new branding including a new logo and website including letterhead, proposal templates, catch phrases and all marketing materials. The leadership of ProCopy have been working with the James Agency for almost a year on the project. They recently announced the company was acquired by the Oval Group, a group from San Francisco, but will remain locally managed by the existing leadership team.
The new branding is centered around the theme of “Calm the Chaos”. Things get crazy in an office when the copier and/or printer doesn’t work and the Pros from ProCopy are just the guys to call when things get crazy. Two other themes play off of the concept: “Stuff (or something like Stuff) gets real when the printer goes down” and ProCopy can help you take the “F” out of office, which of course stands for Frustration, or whatever other word works for you.”
” We are so happy with our new look and new materials. We chal..

As the Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) market continues to mature, most RMM vendors have developed solutions with many of the same features and functionality (like patch management, scripting, reporting and remote access).

Making a case for EFI Connect

The following appears on TheCannataReport.com Dealers Should Seriously Consider Attending EFI’s Connect Conference in Las Vegas, Jan. 17–20; EFI Offers Discount and Show Tour to Subscribers of The Cannata Report
By Frank G. Cannata – In 2004 we were invited to attend EFI’s first Connect Conference in Las Vegas. While we understood the importance of EFI’s contribution to the success of the transition of the copier from an analog to a digital device, we were not quite sure why we received this invitation to a user conference with more than 130 seminars on Fiery technology, workflow, and how to maximize the potential of the hardware.
Why We Went
We were introduced to Connect by Frank Mallozzi EFI’s senior vice president of Worldwide Sales. We originally met Mallozzi in the early 1990s when he was selling the Canon CLC1, one of the first connected color copiers. He would later move to Ricoh before landing with EFI in 1998.
