There's nothing like the holiday season to remind us of what's truly important: family, friends, and community. This time of year gives us a new perspective on what makes a community tick, and here at Valley Office Systems, we're proud to be a part of the vibrant local economy of small and medium-sized businesses. When you partner with us, you're not only investing in world-class business solutions; you're supporting a close-knit coalition of locally owned and operated companies.

Why We Care About Small Businesses

While we may offer office equipment, copiers, and solutions that can meet the needs of any enterprise—big or small—we're a locally-owned company with a strong sense of community. Nothing is more powerful for the good of a local economy than an active group of businesses bringing jobs, security, and services to the people who need them. We're not just passionate about what we do; we're passionate about how we do it. We do things with the small-business mentality, knowing that local companies are often the people clothing kids, feeding families, and giving back the most.

Is it Time to Upgrade to a New Multifunction Printer?

Dec 16, 2016 2:29:54 PM by Valley Office Systems posted in Printers & Copiers

0 Comments

There was a time when shopping for a new multifunction printer was a relatively simple endeavor for a small business. There were a few options on the market, so it was a straightforward matter of comparing and contrasting the available models. Today, the world of MFPs has expanded to include every configuration imaginable—a double-edged sword for small to medium-sized business owners. On the one hand, this means that there are better options than ever at your fingertips, and you should be able to find exactly the model that meets your company's requirements. On the other hand, it means that selecting the right multifunction printer can be a chore—and it's easier than ever to make an expensive mistake.

Here at Valley Office Systems, we love combining our passion for helping businesses with our passion for helping our community.

One of the ways we do this is through our partnership with the United Way. Over the summer, we were a proud sponsor of the popular " Stuff the Bus" event where volunteers gather to stuff backpacks with supplies for students in need throughout the community.

We've also recently seen success in our efforts to empower the next generation. We've paired approximately 100 volunteer mentors with the youth of the Juvenile Justice Services.

In the spirit of sharing our commitment to our community, we've added a page to our website that will highlight our involvement. This new page links to more information on the partnerships mentioned above, but keep checking back because we'll be updating it with more awesome community content soon!
