(NYSE: ARC), the nation's leading document solutions company for the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, today announced it was recognized as a global leader in managed print services by imaging research and consulting firm, Photizo Group. ARC was one of 11 independent providers that Photizo Group selected to participate in the 2013 MPS Leaders Index for channel providers, based on demonstrated leadership in MPS.

"It's gratifying to receive recognition for the innovation and specialization we're demonstrating in the marketplace."

The MPS Leaders Index is a collection of hand-selected, independent MPS providers from around the world that are regarded as the gold standard in managed print and document services. Criteria for selection includes financial and performance metrics; customer profiles; team structure; sales and marketing approach; service, support, and operations metrics; and key performance benefits.

"As the managed services landscape continues to evolve, we are in need of measurable best practices and benchmarks built on real-world results by recognized leaders in managed print and document services," said Ken Stewart, director of Photizo Group's MPS Advisory Service. "These MPS leaders not only demonstrate leadership in MPS, but a genuine interest in the pursuit of best practices that benefit the industry and the customers it serves."
