  • Territory expansion. In March, Access Systems expanded into South Dakota, and in August, the company branched into LaCrosse, Wisconsin, and Rochester, Minnesota. This complemented a dynamic team in Northwest Iowa offering managed print and IT services.
  • Pivotal wins. Access Systems reaped a pair of significant net-new wins during the past year. One deal was for a large school district and included a facilities management contract; the other a large credit union, with the entire process—from introduction to assessment and solution—entirely conducted virtually.
  • Service demand. The pandemic triggered an increase in demand for IT services and cloud communications. Having a diverse portfolio of technology services has provided a more stable foundation to navigate the pandemic.
  • Culture priority. Access Systems introduced the Culture Ambassador program in 2019 and identified its guiding principles: integrity, dedication, generosity, kindness and playful. In 2020, the company created a “job description” and elevated the ambassador role to a leadership position within the organization. Each branch has representation and a voice.

Why We Consider All Copy Products (ACP) Elite:

  • Cost assurance. The dealer is utilizing a One Rate program for clicks, providing more flexibility with existing clients, thereby fostering more renewals based on historical data. The result is less time and resources expended on tracking clicks while providing greater cost savings for customers.
  • Top takedown. ACP reeled in the business of Colorado’s second-largest school district, an agreement that featured more than 600 new units. The deal supplanted a long-standing previous relationship with another manufacturer.
  • Paid ads. During the last two years, ACP has benefitted greatly from using Google ads. Keyword costs are low, and the cost per acquisition allowed for a higher return on investment. One of the benefits of PPC campaigns is the ability to build a unique buyer’s journey based on the exact phrase and keywords for which clients are searching.
  • Corporate caring. Topping the charitable endeavors ACP employs is a charity golf tournament that benefits Denver-based nonprofit Warren Village. The event has raised more than $100,000 during the past five years. The dealer also works with Food For Thought, a local charity that packs lunch bags for children at 38 schools to take home, providing needed nourishment over the weekends. ACP and its employees donate enough money each month to support an entire school’s worth of meals.

In addition to product details, the blogs provide insight as to how they function and outline the key benefits of implementation. The information is also shared in social media and email marketing campaigns.
  • Vertical takedown. Centric’s health care team secured a contract with a regional health network, a deal that included 700 A3 and A4 placements in a number of locations. The contract included solutions for prescription printing, cloud-based faxing, user tracking and cost recovery.
  • Site relaunch. Centric is putting the finishing touches on a website refresh with more-detailed descriptions of products and services, along with a huge library of resources including case studies, infographics and cut sheets. This benefits end-user access to on-demand information while providing additional search engine optimization organically.
  • Employee focus. In an effort to get continuous feedback regarding the employee experience at Centric, the dealer conducts an annual employee survey. This provides valuable insight by identifying how Centric is excelling and how it can improve. The dealer then devises action plans and initiatives to address areas of need.

Why We Consider Copiers Northwest Elite:

  • Pandemic response. When Washington and Oregon were among the first states to enact stay-at-home directives, Copiers Northwest mobilized to offer some of the nation’s earliest promotional packages for businesses in need of printers and other office technology products for home offices. In addition, the dealer provides Evolved Office campaigns that allow its salespeople to have ongoing communication with their customers and prospects.
  • Schooling competition. Among the biggest wins for Copiers Northwest was a school district in eastern Washington. The deal included six high-volume, production-level machines for the district’s print shop, in addition to satisfying all of their printer and MFP needs.

There was no lapse in support, as all calls were answered and resolved efficiently.

Why We Consider EO Johnson Business Technologies Elite:

  • Product expansion. Backed by the January acquisition of print finishing gear specialist Standard Dynamics, EO Johnson extended its production print division to include additional finishing equipment, supplies, service and expertise. As a result, the dealer is now the sole Standard Horizon authorized dealer in much of the Midwest.
  • Key wins. EO Johnson enjoyed much contractual success, including a large technical college in Wisconsin that called for 166 machines with MPS, to the tune of $350,000 in hardware spending. Two large school district pacts resulted in $385,000 in hardware spend, while the Locknet managed IT arm netted renewals totaling more than $900,000 and $755,000 in new projects.

  • Employee enticements. Fostering a family atmosphere that has resulted in low turnover, EO Johnson offers competitive compensation and benefit packages. The dealer recently enhanced its offerings in areas such as paid paternity leave, service anniversary awards, 401K match and schedule flexibility.

Why We Consider Kelley Connect Elite:

This provides customers and prospects more advanced conversations and reduces the chances of a discussion based solely on price.
  • Client testimonials. While the words of a satisfied client make for good marketing fodder, sharing customer success stories in internal emails enables Kelley Connect team members to understand and appreciate the valuable contributions they make, from the warehouse to the sales floor. Every week, the executive team shares a story about how the team has improved client efficiency and overall performance.
  • Beyond products. In addition to showing customers how they can lower their costs and increase efficiencies, the company provides guidance on how they can increase their revenues. This includes improving marketing through digital or direct mail, trans-promotional marketing when invoicing/billing, or responding more quickly to client requests through the use of Kelley Connect’s data entry and digital automation solutions.
  • Charitable endeavors. Kelley Connect partners with a large number of non-profit organizations providing direct and in-kind services to promote their mission. Employees are given one PTO day per quarter to do volunteer work, while each branch selects a local charity to support in their own market via donations or fundraising activities.

Biggest Accomplishment of the Past Year: Les Olson Company takes pride in how it responded to the COVID-19 crisis. The company formulated a plan that was mindful of the health and safety of both its customers and employees.

Why We Consider Les Olson Company Elite:

  • Cost certainty. Les Olson Company’s contracts for managed IT Services provide a low fixed monthly rate for all the services clients require, ensuring customers can avoid incurring unexpected costs. Meanwhile, the dealer’s competitors employ a pay-per incident model that ultimately costs customers too much.
  • Top takedown. One of the biggest wins for Les Olson Company was a contract with the College of Southern Nevada, a deal which included more than $300,000 in equipment and service.

The dealer segmented its list of nearly 12,000 emails into 72 segments, broken down by sales rep, vertical, client/prospect, etc. This allowed the dealer and its new business development team to send highly targeted messaging based on consumer needs.
  • Contractual success. Even amid the pandemic, Modern Office Methods was able to secure the largest contract in company history. The client, the fifth-largest Catholic health care network in the U.S., signed on to a deal that has the potential to include 18,000 devices—with 6,000 MFDs and 10,000 printers through the dealer’s MPS program. The deal also includes full managed services on all print assets for the account.
  • Project pivot. With the pandemic bringing an end to the dealer’s longstanding “Teacher of the Week” program, MOM shifted its focus. In tandem with the Cincinnati Business Courier and Columbus Business First publications, the dealer produced a print and digital ad campaign focused on printer security. MOM hopes to resume the “Teacher of the Week” program in the not-too-distant future.
  • Employee enticements. Cultivating a family feeling is the priority for MOM, and the dealer has used functions such as casual/fun Fridays, carnival days, community involvement projects, corporate days at Kings Island, Cincinnati Reds baseball games and cookouts to achieve it. Promoting wellness through the Live Well-Work Well committee also supports employees in their efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
