Bryan S Ryan Boost Managed Print Credentials

Bryan S Ryan has significantly boosted its Managed Print Services (MPS) credentials across Ireland by acquiring Staples Ireland’s MPS and photocopier business.

The acquisition enables Bryan S Ryan to offer customers all-Ireland direct service provision with MPS contracts with the addition of technical expertise in the West of Ireland. It also builds on the earlier agreement to manage and service Canon Ireland’s customer base in Munster last year.

Managed print services is predicted by many to be the dominant trend in the print industry over the next few years and Europe is leading the way. Market research company Photizo Group has forecast Europe will become the largest MPS market in the world, in terms of the number of companies entering MPS contracts this year.

It is against this backdrop that Bryan S Ryan, the largest and most technically advanced supplier of managed print devices to Ireland’s corporate and SME sectors, has moved to strengthen its presence in the Irish MPS market.

Commenting on the acquisition, managing director Brían Whyte said: “This investment demonstrates our confidence and belief in the Irish market. Our financial commitment further enhances our offering and we are proud as a wholly owned Irish business to support and create jobs on a nationwide basis.

”He described the deal as “very strategic” for Bryan S Ryan as it seeks to win more and more MPS business because many contracts are expected to span the 26 counties.“We don’t want to sub-contract the service for MPS contracts because we feel customers will be better off with a direct services model,” he said.

Whyte also revealed that despite the difficult economic trading conditions in Ireland, Bryan S Ryan had created eight additional jobs over the course of 2012 and aims to add more in 2013.

Irish owned and managed, Bryan S Ryan is Canon’s largest and only Advance Solutions Accredited Partner in Ireland and the main dealer for Kyocera’s extensive range of office products.
