In a past life, I worked in a district that had a contract with SPC.  That is a contract we could not wait to end.  They would not get a favorable recommendation from me.

Subject: Re: Copier companies


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.

Anybody have strong feelings one way or another on your copier company?


Our lease is about to run out and we are looking at purchasing vs. leasing. We are leaning towards purchasing. Also, who would be a good service company?


Thanks in advance for any input.
