Middleton, WI - January 16, 2012 In response to U.S. dealers’ struggles to profit at MPS, Parts Now announces R4 Assessment Pro, an innovative, easy-to-use tool that recommends ways to maximize the efficiency of the imaging fleet while reducing costs for dealers and clients.
“This is the first assessment tool that’s quick, simple, accurate and easily actionable – unlike anything in the industry,” says Matt McLeish, Parts Now Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “R4 Assessment Pro not only analyzes costs, but utilization, capacity, productivity, service requirements and logistics. It’s the total picture that’s been missing from MPS until now.”
Parts Now’s new R4 Assessment Pro is a powerful selling and management software tool, giving dealers control of the 4 Essential MPS Elements:
• Repair – Every service call takes a bite out of dealers’ profitability. R4 software and specialists provide guidance to drive down service program costs.
• Refresh – Refreshing a device sometimes makes more financial sense than repairing or retiring it. R4 Assessment Pro identifies when it pays to refresh clients’ devices.
• Retire – Is a device likely to fail again in less than 2 years? Can its page volume migrate to other devices? R4 Assessment Pro helps identify when to retire a device and where to redistribute its volume.
• Replenish – R4 takes into account the availability and cost of supplies as well as stocking strategies and automated management to reduce time demands and expense.
“The tool’s simplicity, speed and accuracy are what will really stand out for users,” McLeish adds. “You don’t need a statistics or IT expert.” To utilize R4 Assessment Pro, just install a Data Collection Agent for 2 to 4 weeks, then enter your specific cost information and client questionnaire responses to produce a comprehensive, accurate assessment in minutes. “Another aspect of the tool that’s really unique is the easy-to-follow grading system, so your clients immediately understand the health of their print environment. It’s exactly what dealers need to close sales.”
