Since our launch in 1982, The Cannata Report has been the leading intelligence resource for imaging reseller principals and senior executives within the business technology, managed services and imaging industry.
We combine forward-thinking analysis and thought-leadership with in-depth coverage across a wide range of topics including professional services, workflow solutions, IT management, office products, production and industrial print, supplies, vendor finance, mergers and acquisitions, breaking news, market trends and more.
While we write and produce content specifically for resellers, or the independent dealer channel, our audience includes senior business leaders in the hardware, software, IT, leasing, and supplies segments. Our unparalleled expertise and comprehensive reporting is essential for business professionals throughout this evolving industry.
The Cannata Report is the anchor publication of The Cannata Media Group, which also includes a companion digital platform—thecannatareport.com—and The Cannata Report Email Newsletter. The Cannata Report also maintains visibility on social media channels, including Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube.
We also host The Cannata Report Annual Awards & Charities Dinner honoring industry excellence and raising funds for charitable organizations nationwide. Now in its 32nd year, this mainstay event in the industry has raised $1.9 million. The Annual Awards, renamed the Frank Awards in 2015 in honor of company founder, Frank G. Cannata, celebrate excellence and honor major manufacturers, software providers and leasing companies across nine categories within the business technology, managed services and imaging industry. Respondents of our iconic Annual Dealer Survey determine the winners of the Franks.
The Cannata Media Group is owned and operated by Marketing Research Consultants LLC, originally founded as a consulting service for the independent dealer chain 38 years ago. Today, MRC’s strategic consulting enterprise is the most successful of its kind in the industry having provided consultative services in our space for every major manufacturer in the world. We have also worked with virtually every major bank and finance company in the U.S. that service the industry, as well as many of the key players across the related software and aftermarket segments.
