It Never Hurts To Ask

Roll Laminators from ABC OfficeYou would be surprised how many questions can be answered and how many problems can be solved by simply asking a few questions. While we try to post all the information, specifications and features on our products, sometimes there are things we simply don’t list. Here are a few examples.

We often get asked if a machine comes in a 220-volt configuration. This may be a paper folding machine or a laminator. Often times a manufacturer doesn’t tell us that a machine is available in a different voltage configuration. When we get a call from a customer, we typically check with the factory to see if a different voltage is a possibility. We are often able to get a machine custom-made in a 220-volt design.

Much of our furniture is also available in different configurations. If a podium needs to be a little taller, we can usually get a custom-made table to accommodate the requested height. Does it need casters? No problem. If text needs to be engraved, it is often a possibility.

How about a burster? Does it need an extra slitter? We are often asked if we can add an extra slitter wheel or perforation wheel to our office equipment. This can often be done in the factory.

These are just a couple of examples of custom / special request that we are able to fulfill. If you’re not sure about something, give us a call. Our specialists are well trained, friendly and knowledgeable. You can reach us by calling 1-800-658-8788. You can find our entire selection of office equipment here.

Does A Service Department Matter?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

ABC Office Service Department Does it really matter if a company has a service department capable of servicing their own equipment? My answer to that is yes. Of course it does.

There are a lot of office equipment dealers out there trying to get your hard-earned cash. Good for them, but there is one problem. Many dealers of office equipment are unable to service their own products. If a gear gets broken, a manual needs to be replaced or some other problem occurs, you’re out of luck.

What surprises me is that many Internet dealers have an “all sales are final” policy. This means if your equipment is faulty or you need to return something, you’re out of luck. Because this is typically in their Terms & Conditions, they have washed their hands free of responsibility.

ABC Office has its own service department with a full-time staff. We are able to repair our entire selection of equipment, order you parts and offer technical support over the phone. We back our products and know exactly how they work. You can rest assured that ABC Office has your back.

If you don’t want to bother sending your equipment into ABC Office for repair, we have a national network of repair departments capable of fixing your equipment on site. Just give us a call and we can hook you up.

You can visit our service department page online by going here.

Lightly-Used Office Equipment Gets A Second Chance

Monday, July 21st, 2008

As with any retailer / distributor, over time an accumulation of used and demo products will occur. At ABC Office, we have a large showroom that is full of demo products. Most of these pieces of office equipment have been used for demonstrations over the Internet via our Live Video Demos. The equipment is lightly used and in like-new condition. Many pieces have only been out for display.

We also have an accumulation of returns that can no longer be sold as new. This means a customer purchased the product and either didn’t want it anymore or exchanged it for an upgrade. This equipment is often never used or has only been pulled out of the box a couple of times. We have a star rating system, from one to five, that lets you know how good a condition it is in.

Last, but not least, we have several closeout items. These are items that have been sitting in our warehouse, but need to be moved to make room for new stock. These products are brand new, but priced to move.

We now have a large online index of all three product categories: used, returns and closeouts. Products can be ordered online, and because they ARE in stock, they will usually ship out same day.

You can see the entire selection of used / closeout office equipment here: https://www.abcoffice.com/overstock-used.htm

ABC Office hits ten years online and avoids the Dot-bomb.

Thursday, July 13th, 2006

ABC OfficeABC Office has successfully navigated the Internet waters to become one of the most successful Internet-based online office equipment dealers. Many of you may not know the history of ABC Office and how the Web site was created in 1996.

In the late 1990’s, the Internet began to grow in popularity. The Internet was becoming a phenomenal success. Internet-based companies were popping up everywhere and fortunes were being made. ABC Office launched their Web site in 1996. The Web site focused on office automation equipment and transitioned from a traditional brick-and-mortar company to an Internet business.

Around the year 2000, many of the companies began to fail. This is often referred to as the Dot-bomb. Many Internet companies, such as Kozmo.com, Etoys.com and Pets.com declared bankruptcy. Confidence in the Internet began to wane.

While many companies were failing, ABC Office began to grow. Avoiding the fate of other Dot.com companies, ABC Office applied traditional brick-and-mortar strategies to their virtual business. This included real customer service representatives, a full warehouse and a service department.

ABC Office now sells to businesses around the world. To see a full line of products, click here.

Help your business look professional with some desktop marketing tips.

Digital DuplicatorsStarting a business doesn’t come free. Only a select few of businesses started this year will survive. Money is often the biggest factor in determining whether a business survives or goes under. How do you produce advertising materials, business cards and more from the confines of a small business or home office? ABC Office has some tips and ideas that may help you save some money.

A big part of getting your business going is getting your name out in the open. Business cards are a good way of doing this. Paying somebody or outsourcing business cards can become expensive, and custom business cards are often not an option. Many business card makers require minimum orders. You are often left in the dark during many parts of the printing process. We recommend printing your own business cards and cutting them out yourself. This allows you to get a business card that is exactly what you want and need. ABC Office sells business card cutters that help do this. One of these business card cutters is the Cardmate business card cutter.

Paper folders also help assist in making mailers and advertising material. They can be used to fold hundreds of documents at a time with little effort on the part of the user. This is ideal for folding brochures, booklets, mailers and other business oriented literature. ABC Office also recommends other pieces of quipment such as laminators, paper cutters and binding machines.

You should consider printing your own fliers, brochures, mailers and other literature. Standard toner-based copy machines can be very costly to use for large projects. Digital duplicators, much like the old hand-crank mimeograph machines, use ink that is far less expensive than traditional toner-based copy machines. Digital duplicators can be found here.

Money is an important part of getting a business going. If for any reason you cannot purchase the equipment needed for your business, ABC Office offers leasing as an option. Through leasing, many small businesses are able to get the office equipment they need. ABC Office customer service representatives are always happy to help answer questions and offer suggestions to help get your business up and running.

ABC Office announces their new live video demos.

Monday, October 17th, 2005

Live Video DemosThe Internet has made it possible for you to purchase products without leaving your office or home. Although this is very convenient, some people find it difficult to purchase equipment, sometimes valued at thousands of dollars, without seeing it first. We recognize this concern and have found a unique way around this obstacle. The answer is an online live video demo.

We understand that many of you need information and training before spending your hard-earned money. Because we have our own warehouse and stock much of what we sell, we are able to demonstrate much of our office equipment online. It is a way of brining you right into the showroom, without ever having
to leave your seat. You and our service representatives can interact with each other, giving and answering
questions. This one-on-one training helps eliminate most fears and gives you the information you need to make a purchase. This is all done via the Internet and a Web cam.

Setup for the online video demo is very easy and requires little effort. It does have a few requirements that must be met before the training can be initiated. You must first have a broadband Internet connection, preferably DSL or faster. To maintain the highest level of video resolution possible, audio communication is made via telephone. This means you must have an available telephone line for communication with the customer service rep. One of the best features of the live video demo is that it is completely free of cost.

Live video demos are non-committal. We promise not to pressure anyone into making a purchase decision. The purpose is purely for education. Most people that participate in the live video demo are able to take the equipment, set it up and use it right out of the box. You can choose from a wide variety of office equipment. See available products and sign up for a free live-video demo by going here.

Product demos being offered cover shrink wrap systems, foil stamping, paper folding, digital duplicators, roll laminators, binding machines and more.

ABC Office Successfully Reaches 25th Anniversary.

Monday, March 21st, 2005

ABC Office, a local Kaysville, Utah, company has successfully reached 25 years in business. With simple beginnings, ABC Office is now one of the most successful online office equipment stores that specialize in high-end office equipment and accessories. The company ships hundreds of packages a day, and expects business to keep growing.

ABC Office Logo

It all started in the home of William Barlow in 1980. During that time, Mr. Barlow was working out of his home in Bountiful, Utah, selling office equipment to businesses. During that time, the company focused primarily on print shops and copy centers. The company grew quickly and a new office had to be purchased. A structure in the Bountiful city business district was purchased, gutted and remodeled to fit the company’s needs. Over the next few years the business continued to grow and additional office space was built.

In the mid 1990s, the Internet was beginning to grow in popularity and the idea of an online storefront took hold. In 1996, ABC Office initiated its first online Web site where customers could browse products, with ease, from their own computer. “We saw the potential of the Internet,” said Calvin Barlow, current president of ABC Office.

As soon as the Web site was built, calls and orders started coming in from around the world. ABC Office used to sell primarily to customers in Utah, but with the introduction of the Web site, the company began to sell more and more outside the state. The business began to grow so fast that the existing warehouse and store were quickly outgrown.

The current owners and sons of founder William Barlow, Calvin and Brent Barlow, knew they needed to find a new location where they could continue grow. They purchased a plot of land in Kaysville, Utah, and started building a new structure that was completed in December of 1999. The current building, including warehouse space, totals 27,000 square feet.

The building has a display floor, where local customers test out products and purchase machines. The warehouse allows ABC Office to ship products directly to customers, which cuts down on shipping time and customer service. Hundreds of packages ship out of the new warehouse on a daily basis. The staff includes a sales department, Web department, purchasing department, accounting department and a fully functioning service department.

Products are shipped to countries in North America, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East on a regular basis. ABC Office has increased its product line, from the traditional binding machines and paper cutters, to now include security equipment, display racks and photo ID equipment. Paper shredders are currently one of the most popular products sold.

Customers are now able to securely order products via a toll-free phone line or by using the online shopping cart. One of the newest features available to customers is the ability to see a live and interactive video demo over the Internet with a sales associate. This allows customers to see a product live and in action while asking questions and receiving answers.

ABC Office is a true realization of the American Dream. In only 25 years, ABC Office has gone from a door-to-door, home-based business to an international leader in high-end office equipment, accessories
and supplies. To see the wide selection of products and services that ABC Office has to offer, please visit the Web site at here: ABC Office.
