ARC Document Solutions Positioned in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services Worldwide

November 07, 2013

WALNUT CREEK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/07/13 -- ARC Document Solutions Inc. (NYSE: ARC), the nation's leading document solutions provider for the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, today announced it has been positioned in the October 21, 2013 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services, Worldwide, published by Gartner Inc. (NYSE: IT). This is the third year in a row ARC has been named a niche player in the Managed Print Services Magic Quadrant and it remains the only company with its principle market emphasis on the AEC industry. ARC is also the only company in the report that is focused solely on service provision.

"Our innovative approach to MPS remains tremendously compelling to our customer base as demonstrated by our rapid rise to become the ninth largest provider of managed print services in the world. Our focus on comprehensive service and software over the features and functions of equipment puts the customers' needs first," said K. "Suri" Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO of ARC Document Solutions. "When large, multi-national firms work with us, they receive far more than a collection of printers. In addition to outstanding service they have access to a nationwide network of service centers to assist them with overflow work, they can archive documents to the cloud as they print, and they can manage their entire document ecosystem through our virtual dashboards and other document solutions. Frankly, we've built a value proposition for MPS that's very difficult to match."

ARC Document Solutions' Managed Print Services allow its customers to drastically reduce hidden, uncontrolled costs in print management, minimize administrative and support burdens, and optimize employee efficiency through better document management. ARC manages all print components and expenses under a flexible and customized contract. The company is completely agnostic with regard to equipment brands and manufacturers, and helps scale and monitor an intelligent print infrastructure that delivers ongoing cost reductions and technology upgrades.
