But with Altek, you’re not just a customer… I don’t even want to call them a vendor; I would call them a relationship company. I know I can call them if there is ever an issue. Everyone in the organization has the same wantingness to help the customer.”

Print Solutions

“Our challenges, like many other manufacturing companies, we had issues with service. The problem is trying to get qualified people; they don’t know your company, let alone even the product.

Our prior company, the turnaround time could’ve been 8 hours. Service is so important in this industry. And with Altek, it’s not just a price, but it’s the service. Being close, the reliability, and trust factor is something you can’t measure… that has a value to it that’s intrinsic, and you can’t put a dollar amount on it.

About 10 years ago, we were looking for a copier/printer/scanning solution, and we wanted a staleweather product that could handle a lot of scanning as well. Altek had offered us not just a lower cost but they came in with a better service plan and better maintenance. We’ve been very satisfied.”
