Sharp Announces Alliance with Agiliant, Inc.

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America, a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, today announced a new strategic alliance and technology standardization agreement with Agiliant, Inc., the master managed services provider behind the Agiliant Affiliate Network™ (AAN). The relationship positions Sharp’s world-class imaging and technology products as a standard brand of the MITOS™ (Managed Information Technology and Output Services) solution marketed and delivered by Agiliant and across the entire AAN.

The AAN consists of leading independent service providers nationwide, exclusively licensed to market MITOS, an integration of Managed Print Services (MPS) and Managed Network Services (MNS) delivered as a single, coordinated managed services solution for businesses of all sizes.

“Sharp’s leadership in developing advanced enterprise technology makes this alliance a tremendous value to Agiliant and the AAN as a standard product platform and an important foundation from which we will continue to evolve and enhance MITOS,” said Gary Stevens, CEO, Agiliant.

AAN members will gain access to Sharp products, as well as all benefits of the program collaboratively developed by Sharp and Agiliant.  Agiliant is now able to further enhance its ability to scale and evolve MITOS to provide its Affiliates a comprehensive imaging technology platform in conjunction with other select IT products and services. This collaboration will allow Sharp’s independent dealer network to capitalize on convergence of managed print and managed IT services, with a streamlined program for entry into the AAN.
