Epson Partners With Cranel Imaging for Document Scanner Distribution Agreement
LONG BEACH, Calif., March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Epson America, a leading provider of exceptional performing business solutions, today announced an agreement with Cranel Imaging to distribute Epson’s line of business document scanners. Through this agreement, document imaging specialist value added resellers (VARs) will now have access to Epson’s complete line-up of document imaging scanners. This partnership not only strengthens Cranel Imaging’s line of distributed scanning options but also enhances the availability of Epson’s scanners to professional document imaging VARs, helping to create a wider range of solutions to meet customers’ needs.
“Cranel Imaging is highly regarded in the specialist VAR community and Epson is proud to enter into this agreement,” said Mark Pickard, senior product manager, Document Scanners, Epson America, Inc. “As Epson continues its rapid growth in the business document scanner segment, this is a natural partnership and we look forward to working together to offer VARs products that will streamline business and fall directly in line with customer requirements.”
Cranel Imaging provides a supportive and tailored distribution model for VARs, offering a solid technology portfolio, product and business expertise and services, and more. With years of specialized experience in the document imaging industry, and more than 15 vendors offered within its portfolio, Cranel Imaging has become the trusted source for specialist VARs.
“At Cranel Imaging, we consider ourselves VAR advocates, providing products and services that will help clients advance their business,” said Cranel Vice President Scott Slack. “In partnering with Epson, we are strengthening our line of distributed scanning options, allowing us to provide a wide range of solutions for VARs to better equip their customers as technology requirements change.”
The corporate scanning market continues to shift, with organizations moving from large, centralized scanners to desktop scanners distributed throughout individual workgroups, which creates significant improvements in efficiency and workflow. Through this partnership, Epson’s top-of-the line products – from the EPSON® WorkForce® Pro GT-S80 and best-selling EPSON WorkForce Pro GT-S50 sheet-fed scanners to the recently announced EPSON WorkForce DS-30 portable document scanner – are more readily available to the professional document imaging VARs, allowing them to offer a wider range of products and become even more invaluable to customers.
Epson’s line of document scanning solutions is currently available to specialist VARs through the Cranel Imaging website.
