We lease through SPC (Specialized Purchasing Consultants) and they use
Canon USA out of Williston for Copiers and OSV (Office Systems of VT) out
of Barre for Kyocera printers. We insisted on limited models of copiers and
printers from each manufacturer to reduce the amount of toner types we have
to keep on hand as well as limiting the quantity and types of print drivers
to manage. We also wanted all machines with identical control panels for
ease of user management and end user training. The tech that services your
account is more critical than the company providing the machine. A good
tech will make for a good experience through the life of the machine. I
serviced copiers for 23 years so I do a lot of the initial basic fixes to
keep my users happy (I am also factory certified on most of the machines in
our district) and all my techs servicing our account from Canon and OSV
have been fantastic (they are also all former coworkers).
Both companies are also on the state contract so you can go through the
state contract without having to get multiple bids.
