Pharos and PathForward Announce Partnership for Expanded Enterprise Print Consulting Services
ROCHESTER, NEW YORK April 2022–Pharos Systems International, a leading cloud services and technology company specializing in print management software, and PathForward and Associates, Inc. announced a reseller partnership in which PathForward will resell Pharos Systems software solutions and provide value-added, strategic consulting services to enterprise clients in the commercial and public sector markets.
Pharos Systems is the leading supplier of enterprise print management solutions delivered both on-premises and through its Pharos Cloud Printing platform. Kevin Pickhardt, CEO of Pharos Systems highlighted the benefit of the new partnership, “Most organizations in the world are looking to reduce the complexity and cost of their printing environment. This includes the printers, the printing, and the IT infrastructure that supports printing. This is what Pharos software and cloud solutions do for many of the world’s largest global companies. We are pleased to announce a partnership with PathForward which specializes in working hand-in-hand with enterprises seeking value-added consulting services to optimize their printing environment.”
Pathforward is being created as an independent entity from Pharos Systems by Keith Nickoloff, who has held several executive leadership positions in Pharos for the past thirteen years. “I’m pleased to reintroduce PathForward to the market. The PathForward business had been acquired by Pharos from the Standard Register Company in 2009. I look forward to once again growing PathForward as an independent business with a strategic partnership with Pharos,” said Nickoloff.
Originally founded in 1988, PathForward worked with the world’s biggest brands to solve their toughest enterprise print challenges. PathForward is built on the premise that large enterprises want and need help acquiring, deploying, and optimizing their use of print technology, including taking print infrastructure to the cloud.
PathForward is committed to continuing to provide customer-centric consultative excellence with white-glove service, through on-site and remote resources. Along with this customer-first service, PathForward provides incomparable analytics and reporting across the three environments where print happens: hybrid work environments; internal production print; and print that is sourced externally.
Together, PathForward and Pharos provide independent, vendor-neutral, objective software and consulting expertise tailored specifically for client’s goals, priorities, and requirements. This partnership drives bottom-line impact through a unique blend of experience, industry knowledge, and innovative cloud technologies; delivering up to 65% net hard-dollar savings with an eye toward security and sustainability.
