Introducing the 2021 Top 100 MPS Influencers

of the Office Equipment Channel

The Office Equipment channel and those who provide Managed Print Services are on the verge of an exciting, yet challenging transformation. Digital workflows, the move to remote work, and escalating competition mean businesses need to do something different to continue growing. Thought leadership, collaboration, and toolset innovation have never been more important. With that in mind, Tigerpaw Software is proud to present the Top 100 MPS Influencers of the office equipment channel.

Unlike some lists that are “pay to play” or simply by referral, this list was built through a rigorous workflow that took dozens of factors into account. We tracked activity, influence, and connections. We looked at not just the quantity of activities, but also the quality of influence of the activity.  

Our goal with this effort and Tigerpaw’s promise to you? To uncover and spotlight an ecosystem of fresh thinkers and changemakers driving the future of the Office Equipment channel. If you’re looking to grow your business or want to stay current with industry trends, we encourage you to connect with the changemakers on this list. We’ll be conducting podcast interviews with many of these industry experts over the coming months — subscribe to the Tigerpaw blog to make sure you don’t miss an episode.
