The Customer Is Always Right

You’ve heard the old adage that the ‘customer is always right.’ And the thing is…they’re not. Office equipment buyers will insist they provided you documentation they didn’t. They will complain their invoice is wrong, when it isn’t.

I’d argue that while the shift was sudden and dramatic, office technology need not only didn’t wane, it accelerated. Work from home, cloud-based print, and a host of other needs that were value-add solutions became massively mainstream and in high demand.

Is It Time to Look at Equipment Financing Differently?

Four Tips to Encourage Repeat Business

Funnels and pipelines. Sales is full of references to keeping the “flow of business” moving. But the secret to building long-term recurring revenue (and revenue in general) has less to do with bringing in new customers than how you renew existing ones.

Financing for Future Growth

Recovery from economic distress requires more than a plan. It requires capital. Cash reserves are a precious commodity when enacting a plan to climb out of recession because upfront expenses outpace how quickly you can collect on new revenues. One of these upfront expenses is often equipment.
