DocSolid Signs Distribution Agreement with Supplies Network

DocSolid, an ISV promoting a universal document capture platform for managed print services implementations, recently announced a partnership with Supplies Network, which will be offering DocSolid's
Airmail2 platform to its MPS partners. Supplies Network bills itself as "the largest privately-owned wholesaler of IT consumables in the U.S. and an early innovator in MPS."

DocSolid was founded by document imaging industry veteran Steve Irons, a former reseller who also launched another ISV ImageTag. AirMail2 employs some of the same bar-code recognition concepts as ImageTag, but the eventual destination for scanned documents is a cloud-based computing environment, which currently manages e-mailing but will be made available for integration with other cloud-based applications.

Looking to take advantage of the MPS wave, Irons told us that instead of building a distribution channel for his software this time around, he was going to try to leverage one that already exists. He views capture as a natural extension of MPS with a cost of fractions of a cent per print - which is what the MPS charges are based on. More on this in an upcoming premium issue.
