CIO, Harris Teeter

What I like most about FlexPrint is that they treat all of our employees at each of our Living Spaces locations the same way we like to treat our customers.  Our cultures are very similar, and it’s great to work with a partner that actually cares!  They are a true extension to my IT team.

Deb Ponsford

Director of Retail Planning and New Business Expansion-Fulfillment at Living Spaces Furniture, Living Spaces

In all the years I have been working with vendors, never have I experienced ZERO escalations and Zero Complaints from anyone. Not one restaurant has reached out to me for anything regarding printing. FlexPrint has been one of the single best decisions we have made.

Randy Barrett

Manager of IT Support Services, Red Robin

We took our time evaluating a full service managed print solutions offering.  After looking into the programs of Ricoh, Xerox, Lexmark, and HP, we knew hands down that FlexPrint had the right infrastructure in place to manage our entire fleet.  They now support all of our stores, distribution centers, and corporate office – all with a single service level guarantee.  They’ve been great to work with, and I don’t hear about printer problems anymore.

FlexPrint tracks activity with store sales volume and quickly spots potential abuse.  That saves us money!  The help desk is also seeing significant improvements – a 70% decrease in printer related tickets.

David Baker

Director of Store Labor Management Systems, Smart & Final

FlexPrint put together a national print strategy that not only helps us reduce and control our overall costs, but improve customer service by making sure our employees get the necessary prints needed in a timely fashion to complete customer transactions.  Their program is simple for our employees and maximizes our return on investment with document technology.

The Biggest Opportunity For Pain Relief and Cost Savings

What we typically find within retail is the biggest impact a true Managed Print Program can have is at the individual retail locations, and only 10% of retailers have a solid strategy in place to provide local store support.
