October 2, 2012 (Philadelphia, PA and Mt. Laurel, NJ) – Futura Mobility, a leader in enterprise mobility solutions, has entered into an alliance with OKI Data Americas (OKI Data), a marketer of innovative PC peripheral equipment and customized document management solutions. As a result of this relationship, Futura will leverage OKI Data’s proprietary Total Managed Print™ (TMP) solution for the delivery of Managed Print Services. TMP features a flexible suite of nine brand agnostic and proprietary services that can be tailored to compliment and supplement any solution provider’s Managed Print Service model.

In addition, Futura Mobility offers an online ordering portal to facilitate an efficient supply chain and just in time delivery, making the process seamless for customers.

“Many companies seek solution providers who can offer all-in-one solutions for their enterprise, including strategy, design, product selection, design, development, deployment and support,” said David Gulian, CEO of Futura Mobility. “Futura’s alliance with OKI Data Americas is a perfect fit, and strengthens our ability to deliver complete mobile managed and print fleet services to our enterprise clients.”
