Pahoda Image Products Opens Doors
Lakewood, CO (FEB 2010) – Printer and Copier companies have long struggled with creating efficient product comparisons for their end-user customers as well as keeping their websites up to date with continuous manufacturer product changes. Given the vast amounts of imaging products in the market, it is difficult for sales reps to keep up on what’s available and how it compares given most of their time is tasked in finding new business. Pahoda Image Products has built industry tools which allow a sales rep to quote 3 different printers in less than 3 minutes while looking at long term costs for each individual customer.
President of Pahoda Image Products, Jesse Harwell states: “As a former sales associate, I found the comparison of multiple brands of printers and copiers in the quote creation stage of the sale to be a painful and time intensive process. Each time I thought I had completed a quote, the customer would desire to change a few variables and I would have to start over. Being a former web developer and SEO expert, I decided to employ some database skills to vastly improve this process for myself and soon found other printer and copier dealers wanting to use these tools I had developed and maintained. This was the start of Pahoda Image Products”
Pahoda Image Products boasts of 3 ways they can help a printer and copier company be more profitable immediately!
1. Pahoda Image Products reduces the amount of time it takes to create a quote keeping sales reps busy selling and not doing the typical laborious quote creation process.
2. Pahoda Image Products helps printer and copier companies stay up to speed on current product offerings because there is no loyalty to a manufacturer. All data on products is what the manufacturers are advertising themselves, Pahoda just makes it easy to get all the data in one spot and compare without bias. (Currently there are over 900 printers and copiers, both current and discontinued in the database)
Personalized service is a key to Pahoda’s success, as only one dealer per 20 mile radius is accepted into the sales and marketing program. This assures the printer and copier dealer the tools they are investing in for their company doesn’t show up in every sale from their local competitor.
