Offix Honored as a 2018 Elite Dealer by ENX Magazine & The Week in Imaging

Offix has been has been selected as a 2018 Elite Dealer by ENX magazine and The Week in Imaging, a print and online publication for dealers and re-sellers of office technology, solutions, and services. This will be the twelfth year in a row Offix has won the Elite Dealer Award.

 

“These dealers represent the standouts from the independent dealer community,” says Scott Cullen, Editorial Director of ENX and The Week in Imaging. “These are the entrepreneurs, innovators, top sellers, and celebrated members of the communities in which they work who provide office technology, software, and services to local, regional, and national businesses and organizations.”

Despite geographical differences and differences in size, these dealerships share many common traits. Some of those traits and the criteria for selection as an Elite Dealer include growth; innovative marketing programs, strategies, and/or service offerings; customer satisfaction; acknowledgements and awards from their vendors and other third-party organizations; special initiatives that make that dealership a great place to work; and corporate citizenship and community involvement.

The 2018 Elite Dealers encompass dealerships with revenues of less than $5 million a year to those with revenues of more than $150 million.

 

“It’s never any one quality that makes an Elite Dealer, it’s a combination of qualities,” says Cullen. “Plus if there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years of presenting our Elite Dealer awards, it’s that independent dealers such as Offix remain critical to the overall success and the survival of the independent dealer community. In our opinion, Offix is a shining example of an Elite Dealer.”

Customer of the Month Spotlight Feature

Written by Asheton Rose Graham, Marketing Coordinator

 

Meet Ms. Mary Hall, Our Offix Customer of the Month, the well-oiled machine and office manager of Warrenton Presbyterian  for 9 years running, and a loyal customer to Offix for 10 years! I had the pleasure of sitting down with Ms. Hall yesterday and really get to know her and the mission behind WPC.  Right off the bat, she was warm and inviting, as she kindly gave me the grand WPC tour, including Warrenton Presbyterian SchoolWarrenton Presbyterian School (WPS) is a nonprofit outreach program of Warrenton Presbyterian Church and is an extension of the church’s ministry to the community. WPS serves children 2 – 5 years of age and offers 2, 3 and 4-day morning preschool classes.

As we walked the halls of the church, Ms. Hall shared with me that she is a native to Warrenton, VA and has 3 adoring children. She has been an active member at Warrenton Pres since 2003. Faith and family are the two things that she holds most dear. When I asked her what she liked most about working at Warrenton Presbyterian, she simply stated, “It’s the people.” WPC focuses their efforts on investing in people both within their church community and outside of the church. She exclaimed that WPC is a servant community church. Their Mission statement:

“WPC is a gathered community of people in action who eagerly share the love, grace, and peace of Christ with humility and thanksgiving.”

This holds true in the many outreach programs they facilitate throughout the church community.

I asked Ms. Hall to elaborate further on the outreach programs at WPC, and I can fully say they are true to their mission statement. They are heavily involved with Habitat for HumanityThe Haven Homeless Shelter, and The Community Food Bank. Their community garden, located behind the church grounds, provides fresh produce that they give to the local homeless shelter and the community food bank. Every first Sunday of each month the WPC community gathers to collect non-perishable food items to donate as well. They also help people with benevolences. The WPC family is there to aid assistance to those who need it.

Local and world missions is another focus. They send a team to Baja Mexico every year to build homes. This past year alone, they built 6 homes. That is astounding!!! A bit closer to home, they take a team to West Virginia each year to do full home renovations. Completely gutting homes and making them like new while Mary and other women in the church cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday for the crew and the families of the homes they are renovating.

WPC doors are open to the community and the many community groups that meet in the fellowship hall from Boy/Girl scout groups, AA, Al- Anon, and many more. This church is truly defined by their outreach.

We had a few extra moments to discuss her 10-year customer loyalty with Offix. I asked her what has been her favorite thing about working with us over the past ten years?  She was quick to say, “I never go down. The rare times I’ve had my machine go down I have had Jeronimo out here in the blink of an eye to fix any issue. Your response time is truly AMAZING!” She even chuckled stating

that she LOVES our canon products.

My time with Mary revealed there are many similarities between the Offix family and the WPC Family. The biggest takeaway, Offix shares many of the same principles and values about taking care of people within our work culture, our customers, and our community. Having moments to get to know our customers and understand their stories is quite a privilege. That is what makes our relationships with our customers so special. “The Offix Experience” is all about getting to know our customers on a deeper level and learning something from them in the process.

But, Managed Print Services (MPS) offers an effective solution to control print costs in the legal industry, while improving document workflows and printing processes.

Managed Print for Healthcare. Reduce costs. Increase Efficiency. Improve Patient Care.

February 19, 2018

Generated by: Evolved Office

Healthcare organizations are always seeking new ways to save time and reduce costs. Many hospital administrators feel forced into making spending cuts to close budget gaps. But there is another solution that can save you big—Managed Print Services.

Managed Print Services (MPS) offers an effective solution to control print costs in the healthcare field, while improving document workflow and printing processes. Although healthcare is a paper-intensive field, many employees click “print” whether they really need a hardcopy document or not—bleeding your budget on supplies, consumables, and high costs per page. But, MPS reduces waste by streamlining printing across an entire organization with print tracking and monitoring tools, while lowering total printing costs in the process. This allows your staff more time and resources to focus on patient care, rather than print-related tasks—like ordering supplies, repairing devices, or installing new equipment.

Benefits of MPS for Healthcare:

  • Save up to 30% on printing cost
  • Allow valuable IT resources to focus on strategic initiatives
  • Improve sustainability by implementing printing controls
  • Manage devices locally, nationally or worldwide

HIPAA and Your Printer Fleet:

Did you know that copy and print machines contain hard drives that capture and store protected health information? That remnant data can leave your healthcare facility vulnerable to security threats from both inside and outside your organization.

Overlooking copiers, printers, and other imaging devices when implementing HIPAA privacy and security measures can be a costly mistake. But, healthcare facilities can eliminate this risk by partnering with a solutions provider that understands how important it is to protect your patients’ information.

As a trusted MPS provider, we will take the necessary steps to secure all of your imaging devices and ensure that any network-connected devices include the proper security features to prevent security breaches.

More and more hospitals and healthcare facilities are switching to MPS to help keep administrative costs low, so they can focus on what matters—taking better care of their patients. Contact us today to learn more 703.530.1200

It’s more important than you think….

Beware of Toner Pirates. They Are Back Again!

January 22, 2018

What you should know:

In our industry, one of the most common scams to target business owners are “Toner Pirates”. These scammers represent companies that call businesses in an attempt to sell printer toner or ink cartridges over the phone using high pressure tactics. Generally, Toner Pirates claim to be calling on behalf of your “supplier” mentioning superior prices that you must take advantage of that day or that prices will be increase. It is possible they may even know the models of equipment your company uses. The problem is that Toner Pirates are selling high-priced and/or low-quality products.

Here’s the best way to deal with those pesky toner pirates:

One, know who your current supplier is and mention them to the caller. Typically, they will hang up, but if they continue, simply let them know you will call your supplier back to confirm the offer. If you are unaware of who your supplier may be, ask the caller to identify their company name, location, and a call back number. The key is to realize that the high-pressure sales tactics indicate a targeted scam. Keep in mind, Toner Pirates target an area for a certain time period.

If you would like to talk to Offix , who is a trusted local supplier, feel free to give us a call at (703.530.1200) or e-mail marketing@offix.com.

Streamline Business Processes by Automating Document Workflows

January 15, 2018

Generated by: Evolved Office

In the so-called ‘Digital Age,’ it’s remarkable to think that so many businesses are still utilizing manual, redundant tasks in their operations. This is particularly curious when it comes to the continued use of paper documents in workflows. While documents remain an integral part of business processes, organizations continuing to work with them in paper form rather than digital or electronic versions are turning their back on technology, which offers upgrades to efficiency and productivity. By simply automating your workflows with the help of a document management solution, you can stop shuffling paper and streamline your business processes.

Paper is hardly the most efficient medium for information. When in paper form, documents: are easily misplaced or lost; must be physically handed off from person to person or department to department; and require employees to proactively move the workflow forward, rather than an automated process. All of this adds up to paper moving slowly and tediously through your office.

An automated document workflow, on the other hand, streamlines your business processes, promoting efficiency, speed, and accuracy. Contact us today to learn more on Offix can help streamline your document workflows.
