Datamax + TIPS: Helping Purchasing Co-op Members Streamline Technology Acquisition

Datamax and The Interlocal Purchasing System

Hot Springs, Ark. (Jan. 29, 2020) - Datamax is pleased to be named an authorized vendor with The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS), a national purchasing cooperative that offers access to competitively procured purchasing contracts to its membership.

By becoming an authorized vendor, Datamax will help expedite the technology acquisition process for qualifying agencies, who, as TIPS members, gain time-saving resources necessary to fulfill bid requirements.

Datamax (contract no. 180103) is an authorized provider of copiers, printers and print management/optimization software. This includes Canon copiers, Kyocera and Lexmark copiers and printers, as well as PaperCut print management software, with whom Datamax is a Premier Partner.

“We are excited to now partner with the TIPS program, which provides great opportunities for acquiring technology for our customers,” said Datamax Hot Springs-based Area Sales Manager Lee Wheelington. “This capability, combined with Datamax’s in-house, non-third party leasing program (since 1975), and its expertise with PaperCut software, makes us a strong candidate for any TIPS member.”

Datamax is the only vendor with a TIPS Contract authorized to sell PaperCut. PaperCut is a software solution that helps organizations minimize waste while having a secure and easy printing experience.

TIPS currently serves entities such as state and local governments and non-profit organizations, including but not limited to:
