Industry’s leading trade organizations collaborate to strengthen managed print services standards for MPS industry stakeholders
January 25, 2022 — The Managed Print Services Association (MPSA) announced today their new MPSA Managed Print Certified accreditation, formerly known as the CompTIA Managed Print Trustmark program.
Beginning this year, this approach will allow organizations that have already obtained a CompTIA Managed Print Trustmark certification to leverage that assessment in obtaining accreditation for MPSA Managed Print Certified. The status of organizations that are currently accredited by CompTIA will not be affected by this change.
Organizations looking to achieve the new MPSA Managed Print Certified accreditation will be able to start the online certification program before March.
To earn the Managed Print Certified accreditation, organizations are evaluated on the internal practices and procedures used to run their managed print business and the external activities and operations they engage in with customers and prospects. This process validates the organization’s commitment to meet or exceed the best business practices the MPS industry has to offer for end-user organizations.
“Customers looking for true managed print services that can streamline their business processes and give them the peace of mind that they made the right decision deserve a standard that lets them know they’re getting the best,” said MPSA President West McDonald. “Managed Print Certified will ensure they get exactly that. It was built on CompTIA’s exacting standards and we are proud to take over its stewardship for a new generation.”
