These awards highlight the products, technologies, services, and programs that best fit the requirements of SMBs and the channel pro organizations that serve them. Nearly 1,000 VARs, MSPs, systems integrators, custom builders and IT consultants in the U.S. voted in this year’s ChannelPro SMB Readers’ Choice Awards, and named Epson as one of the top three Managed Print Services (MPS) providers.
