DALLAS, March 20, 2001 - CopiersNow Inc., a company that is changing the way office equipment is sold and serviced, announced today the opening of its Dallas location. With the addition of this showroom in the Dallas Galleria, a showroom in Austin and another forthcoming in Houston, CopiersNow has selected to rollout its Texas operation ahead of the openings planned for the balance of the fifty states.
The company, headquartered in Englewood, CO., has launched in Denver and Austin, making Dallas its third showroom. "Texas is an ideal foundation for our aggressive national expansion plans," said Paul Archer, CEO of CopiersNow. "As a state that has some of the most wired cities in America, we see Texas as a place that is wide open to new technologies and methods of doing business. We think our new and improved business model will be embraced here." CopiersNow unique business model combines local showrooms, a user friendly Website (www.CopiersNow.com) and wireless technologies to offer businesses a new way to select, purchase and service copiers, printers, faxes, and supplies.
Customers can come to the Website to research and compare a wide-selection of copiers, visit the local showroom to demo the equipment, and use the site to purchase the equipment and save up to 25% in the process. "With a combined total of 80 years in the copier business, we're in a position to completely understand what companies want and need when it comes to purchasing and servicing office equipment," said Archer. "We've set up CopiersNow to remove all aggravation from this process, from the partnerships we've formed, to the new wireless technologies we've developed for service, to our no-haggle sales strategy."
CopiersNow has developed proprietary technology that allows for remote monitoring of printers and copiers. The wireless remote meter capture device will free up the time of office managers who normally have to handle these items manually, ensure accurate billing, and reduce machine downtime. A venture-backed company that has raised $15.75 million to date, CopiersNow carries equipment from five premiere brands: Canon, Xerox, Hitachi, Kyocera Mita and Royal Copystar. The company, however, operates independently so that it can provide extensive, unbiased and comparative information and offer recommendations based on a customer's particular needs.
