Happy New Year! We appreciate your continued faith in Benchmark to keep your offices running more efficiently and look forward to continuing our relationship with you. This year has been one with many highlights. In early 2017, we were again named the #1 Xerox Sales Agency in the Nation, became a 2017 Xerox MPS Master Elite Accredited company, and in October, were named the large business recipient of the BBB Torch Award in North Central Texas.
Benchmark believes it is only as strong as the communities we serve. More than ten percent of our profits are continually invested in our communities through more than 100 sponsorships and non-profit contributions each year. We feel it is important for our staff to be involved, and during the past five years, more than 75 percent of our team members have volunteered for at least one charity or organization in their community.
Also new in 2017, Benchmark acquired TonerTiger, a managed print services (MPS) and IT hardware solutions provider based out of Abilene, Texas. With TonerTiger on our team, we are expanding into IT hardware and software solutions while increasing our MPS portfolio of products and services.
We happily joined the Visual Edge Technology family of companies on November 30, 2017. Benchmark Business Solutions will continue to provide unduplicated service, now with an expanded family.
Again, thank you for your continued business. Best wishes for 2018!
