SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES
Most of our direct sales are achieved through the reputation of our company. We do have a website, presence in social media and company labels on our products, but most of our retail customers make their approach from word of mouth and recommendations.
Probably around 75% of our private sector sales activities take place through Channel Marketing. During all the years of operation, our company is very proud of its wide network of Dealers around Cyprus, some exclusive and some not. Our Dealer network expands all around the island, and our target is to keep those wholesale Dealers educated with our products, informed for every new development and Special Offer and trained to be able to provide the basic technical assistance to their customers.
Our long standing experience in the field of Public Tenders, has established our company’s name with Tender officials in various departments of the Cyprus Government. We have been participating in Public Tenders for the last 15 years, mainly successfully, creating a reputation of reliability and stability among public officers.
Our success in the e-procurement tenders, since their introduction 6 years ago, has allowed us to deliver and install around 5,000 laser printers (color and B/W) in Government offices all around Cyprus. We take our ongoing presence in Government Tenders extremely seriously, and our focus is set in continuing this productive tradition.
The results from this activity are positively affecting all our fields of business:
- Large amounts of printers currently installed in Public offices
- Production level scanners working, under maintenance agreements, in Departments like Registrar of Companies, with extremely high daily usage of archiving for Content Management.
- Various cash Processing Devices, like Banknote Counters and Coin Counters/Sorters are stationed in almost all Banking Systems in the country, as well as any other Department with a cashier counter sector, like Electricity Authority, CYTA etc.
Our reputation has allowed us to participate in Tenders from the Private Sector as well. It may not be quite as competitive and of a smaller scale, but we value our customers equally and show the exact level of high professionalism in every call and in every matter that involves our machines.
From the country’s largest private companies (like hospitals, law firms, and shipping agencies) to SOHO companies, we uphold yearly contracts for maintaining, servicing and supplying their printing and scanning fleets.
Our company has been active in the Cypriot market of office equipment and machinery for almost 50 years. Through those years many elements have changed, different technologies have been introduced, although our technological knowledge and our ongoing efforts to stay present in our consumer’s options, have established our company.
