The Managed Print Services Association (MPSA) has announced that it is now accepting nominations for the Global 2016 MPSA MPS Awards. All 2016 nominations are due by May 30, 2016.

The association plans to reveal the winners in each of 10 categories at the CompTIA ChannelCon 2016 event, to be held in early August in Hollywood, Florida.
The MPSA MPS Awards were established in 2010 to honor those companies that have excelled in various areas related to managed print. Winners are recognized as leaders, innovators and dedicated members of the managed print services community.
The following 10 award categories reflect the diversity of the managed print services industry. Each nomination form covers six areas, including the extent of the program or service, problem solved and approaches used.

Once nominees have completed their submission forms, they should save the documents and email them to the 2016 Awards Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by the May 30 deadline.
