Why Datamax Will Never Be the Wholesale Club of Copier Sales

Discounts are great – in the right circumstances. Discount copiers can mean discount services – and that could hurt your business.

Wholesale clubs are awesome — you always spend more than you planned when you walked in the door with your list, but you get such great deals! Who doesn’t want toilet paper in bulk, or a giant bag of coffee for the price of the regular sized one you buy at your grocery store?

Not to mention the euphoria you feel from paying less for something you would otherwise buy full price. It feels good.

How Much Would You Tip Your Copier Service Provider?

Don't settle for average or worse service from your copier dealer.

Do you spend a lot of time on airlines that ignore your requests and pass you over on the upgrade list? How about a restaurant where you can never get a refill because the server is off texting?

You can encounter bad service everywhere you go, and you probably cross those businesses off the list after they ruined your experience. Sometimes these situations are unavoidable, but in most cases, the people involved simply chose to deliver subpar service.

The same thing can happen with your copier service. You might settle because you're locked into a contract and you didn't realize just how bad the support was until you needed help. Why would you walk away from those airlines and restaurants in your personal life but continue to suffer as an SMB? It doesn't have to be this way.

Canon Comes Out on Top for Law Firm Copiers

Research shows that law firms love Canon copiers.

You see a lot of natural combinations out there. Chocolate and peanut butter, steak and eggs, and wine and cheese are a few classic pairings. What doesn't fall so easily into place are the services that support a major business investment, such as your production printer and your digital copier.  

The pre-sales process goes smoothly, but you often find yourself left hanging after you sign on the dotted line. At Datamax, we put a lot of resources into the after-sales support process. Our technical support team works together with the top manufacturers, such as Canon, to learn everything they need to know for high-quality support. Our dedication to after-sales support has earned us recognition from Canon's Association of Technical Service Professionals (ATSP).
