Keypoint Intelligence New Multi-Client Study Measures Demand for Print as a Subscription

Converting users from a transactional mode of acquiring printing products and services to a subscription includes many advantages for OEMs who are able to find the right offering for the market.

WEYMOUTH, Mass. (PRWEB) January 21, 2020
Keypoint Intelligence is pleased to announce the completion of the US Micro-MPS/Subscription Print for SMB study. This study identifies the mix of products and services that SMB buyers want most in a micro-MPS/subscription print offering. The research also looks at the likelihood of adoption given the correct plan and price.
The findings suggest that almost 25% of smaller users up to 99 employees currently use some type of subscription service. However, results show that when looking at small users who currently do not use a subscription program, they generally want additional features besides low cost and automatic supplies fulfillment.
“Converting users from a transactional mode of acquiring printing products and services to a subscription includes many advantages for OEMs who are able to find the right offering for the market,” said John Shane, Director of Communication Supplies at Keypoint Intelligence. “We expect that vendors will increase their efforts to provide print subscription services for smaller organizations under a model where a core set of benefits are offered as a baseline service and other services added as organization size increases.”

Franklin Energy to Implement Innovative Demand Response Program for North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives

From program enrollment and product selection through in-field installation and customer support, our platform will deliver a seamless member experience for all elements of the program.

PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (PRWEB) January 13, 2020
Franklin Energy, a leading provider of energy efficiency and grid optimization solutions, announced today that they will manage North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives’ expanded Residential Demand Response program.
The program will initially be provided to a select number of homeowners and renters served by five of the state’s electric cooperatives: Brunswick Electric, Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative, Jones-Onslow EMC, Lumbee River EMC and South River EMC. To be eligible for the program, members must be living in a single-family home or multifamily property with a WiFi connection.
“We’re pleased to partner with Franklin Energy to deploy in-home demand response devices, including smart thermostats and water heater controls, on a wider scale,” said Jimmy Wilkins, North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives Director of Portfolio and Resource Optimization. “We’ve piloted this technology in the past, and this initiative will expand on the success of our previous efforts to further improve power reliability and help cooperative members achieve both energy and cost savings.”
Through this program, qualifying homeowners and renters can go online and enroll in the program, purchase a discounted Nest or ecobee smart thermostat for as low as $25 and schedule an appointment for free professional installation. In addition to the low-cost smart thermostat, members will receive an annual $50 incentive for their continued participation and an additional $50 one-time incentive for an electric water heater controller added to the plan. Once installed, the smart thermostats and water heater controllers will automatically adjust during times of high-power demand across the electric grid, keeping energy use and costs lower while maintaining comfortable in-home and hot water temperatures.
“Franklin Energy is excited to provide a best-in-class experience to North Carolina Electric Cooperatives’ members,” said Kevin McDonough, President of Franklin Energy. “From program enrollment and product selection through in-field installation and customer support, our platform will deliver a seamless member experience for all elements of the program.”
Through this partnership, North Carolina Electric Cooperatives and Franklin Energy intend to reach their goal of expanding load control programs to 100MW capacity by the end of 2023.
