SPRINGFIELD—CPI Technologies has been selected to be a member of the HP Partner First Managed Print Specialist Premier program. Premier members are selected based on the strength of their experience, customer service capabilities, and technical expertise. Fewer than 200 companies nationwide are members of the exclusive program.
“CPI is excited for the opportunity to better serve customers through this exclusive partnership,” said Erik Crane, President & CEO of CPI Technologies, “and to continue offering the outstanding service which made this partnership possible.”
CPI’s inclusion as a Premier Partner gives them, and their customers, exclusive access to HP products, including HP’s newest A3 Managed MFP portfolio designed to provide fast, reliable, cost effective color. Plus, HP’s fleet of managed A3 devices offer the world’s most secure printing. Only HP printers can stop an attack the moment it starts with unique security features.
The announcement of CPI’s partnership with HP follows the news that Crane and his wife, Heidi Starks Crane, have purchased the company from Starks Crane’s parents, CPI founders Vernon (Vern) Starks and wife, Antonette (Toni) Starks.
CPI has offices in Springfield and Joplin in Missouri, Mountain Home in Arkansas, and in Iola, Pittsburg, and Wichita in Kansas.
