More than 25,000 customers with millions of users in more than 126 countries are proof of the value we deliver. Efficiency, manageability, reliability, ease of use and security are results of 18 years of innovation in print management. Building on this success, we have some exciting and new solutions being announced at this year's show, further differentiating our offering and leadership position in the industry.
VMblog: Why should a VMworld attendee add you to their MUST SEE list?
ThinPrint: We have two new solutions we are announcing at the show, both being extremely unique in their position in the industry. We can't talk about them quite yet but they'll be worth a stop by booth #1331. We've added a whole extra kiosk to have enough space to show the new ideas.
VMblog: Can you give VMblog readers a sneak peek as to what you will be showing off at your booth this year?
