Welcome to the Future

By Bill Melo

Hi, I’m Bill Melo, Vice President of Marketing, Services & Solutions for Toshiba America Business Solutions. At Toshiba I oversee our Managed Print Services program, as well as our Security and Eco-Innovation solutions and services.

Today we are living in a business environment where people are trying to be good stewards of the planet, lower their operating costs and protect their most valuable business asset – information. This isn’t a one-time event, but a major shift in the way people think. Being frugal and making things last is not just an economic necessity, but good business. Protecting and controlling your critical business information is vital today and becomes a differentiator for you and your customers. This is the “New Normal”.

So how do we get there? Over the next weeks and months we’ll be highlighting innovations, news, stories, tips and some analysis on ways to help you and your customers travel this road. The issue is how to respond to this new environment. If there’s one thing every business and our planet can use right now, it’s managing to do more with less.

Come back often as we share industry insights, business issues and strategies to address these challenges. I hope you enjoy and benefit from the information.
