Tampa Bay is a town on the rise. Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater and the rest of the Tampa Bay metropolitan area continues to grow in economic and cultural size and strength. Tampa Bay is increasingly being recognized as a powerful, mighty, East Coast metropolis, competing with other powerhouse cities like New York City, Washington, D.C. and Chicago.
As a city grows, so does its copier industry. As a premier provider of document-based technology solutions, we here at ClearView Business Solutions are uniquely positioned to give you the low-down on some of the best dealers in the industry (besides us, of course). Over our years of experience in the industry, we have become very familiar with some of the biggest names in the copier industry. We have positioned ourselves to match (and even exceed) the resources of our competitors, so we’ve gotten to know them fairly well in the process.
Despite all of our strengths, we realize that we’re not the best fit for every single organization. As such, we want any organization looking for a copier to be able to understand all of its options to be able to choose the vendor that best fits its needs. As you’ll notice, different organizations provide different solutions that will be a better or worse fit for your organization. That being said, here’s your guide to some of the finest copier dealers in the Bay area, starting with a relatively well-known name.
Founded in 2002, DEX Imaging has grown into a well-known regional provider of office equipment solutions. It has grown so large that in February 2019, Staples Inc. took note of its nearly two decades of ascendance and acquired it. DEX’s printers, copiers, scanners and document software helps businesses take care of all of their document-based needs.
As an independent imaging dealer, DEX works with products from household names such as Konica, Kyocera and Canon. Some of DEX’s signature products include Kyocera’s TASKalfa MPF series and Konica Minolta’s bizhub production series. DEX’s chairman, Dan Doyle, founded Danka Business Systems in 1977. His son, Dan Doyle Jr, now serves as DEX’s CEO. The company’s technology help-desk provides phone and online support to customers with pressing technical questions. In addition, DEX provides its customers with document management software for their document-imaging processes.
