We love the Cedar Valley region of Iowa. From Cedar Falls to Cedar Rapids you’ve got beautiful scenery, top notch educational institutions (go Panthers!), and eclectic night life in vibrant downtown Cedar Rapids. We are also excited about the up-and-coming “Creative Corridor” with plenty of emerging start-ups in the area. But what if you’re looking to buy a multifunction copier or printer for your Cedar Rapids organization? Can you find a local, Iowa company to meet your needs around Cedar Rapids? We know that buying a copier or printer for your office is a difficult (and expensive) decision, so it helps if you know who to trust. That’s why we are here to help. Below, we offer some data to help you when making these decisions.
In a 2012 analysis conducted by Gartner, the 10 most popular office multifunction copier brands were ranked according to total units sold in the United States. Canon leads the way (probably their motivation for publicizing the study), but the rest of the 10 are worth noting as well. You can see the chart and numbers below.
These 10 brands are national industry leaders in the copy and print market, and they should all be considered when your organization is looking for a new copier. To be clear, all of these copy machines will be able to print, scan, and fax as well, that is why they are called “multifunction” copers and printers (or MFP’s). Below, you will also see which local printer and copier dealers serving Cedar Rapids, Iowa, actually sell and service equipment from each of these top 10 manufacturers.
Laser Resources leads the way in this group of Iowa businesses, working with 6 of the top 9 multifunction copier and printer brands in the world. Laser Resources works with the #1 brand in the world, Canon, and is the only company servicing Cedar Rapids to offer award-winning Toshiba solutions (we are the largest Toshiba dealer in Iowa). This allows us to provide a truly custom solution for our customers’ specific needs, as we are not tied down to just one or two brands. With 6 of the top 9 industry leaders represented, Laser Resources offers you the most options in Cedar Valley when creating a custom solution to your copy or print needs. (You can also see how we stack up in Des Moines.)
Even better than this equipment is our commitment to customer service. If you’re in Cedar Rapids or Cedar Falls and are looking for some examples of our customer service, you can ask our friends at RuffaloCODY or Linn-Mar Schools, two loyal customers. We believe in turning every single customer into a “raving fan” and we work with you to make sure your operation never misses a beat, from installation to training to proactive maintenance. In fact, Laser Resources is the only company in Iowa to earn the prestigious PROs Elite Top 100 Dealer in America award, which is only awarded to dealers who meet a very strict set of customer service metrics.
