LONG BEACH, CA (Laserfiche)–June 17, 2013–Laserfiche welcomes Cell Business Equipment as an authorized Value Added Reseller (VAR) providing Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM) solutions from its four Southern California locations.
Since 1993 CBE has provided office document management services and products from industry leaders such as Sharp, Ricoh and Canon. A keen understanding of the document management industry forged over 20 years in the business helped CBE president and owner Tarek Hafiz decide he needed to offer more software services with the hardware he was selling. So, he turned to Laserfiche.
“We realized we needed to offer a first-class ECM software solution to our customers and we’ve heard so many good things about Laserfiche,” said Hafiz. “We’re gearing our business more toward IT services and we expect it will be a huge part of our business. The office equipment business is no longer just about clicks or prints. It’s about providing whatever your customers need to keep their offices productive.”
Office equipment companies from across the country are coming to the same realization, said Stephen Weinberg, vice president of sales operations at Laserfiche. “It’s not just office equipment companies that sign on as Laserfiche VARs, but also office equipment companies that pay attention to their customers’ needs and what the document management industry offers to meet those needs.”
Since 1993 CBE has expanded to serve customers in education, retail, healthcare and government from its Southern California offices in Irvine, Industry, Inglewood and Ontario. CBE is a six-time recipient of Office Dealer Magazine’s Elite Dealer Award, and a three-time winner of Image Source magazine’s Perfect Image Award. The company has also been recognized by Orange County Business Journal & Inc. Magazine as one of Southern California’s fastest growing businesses every year since 2009.
“It speaks to the quality of Laserfiche ECM software that we repeatedly attract only the best and most trusted resellers in the office equipment sales and service industry,” said Weinberg. “We look forward to a long profitable partnership with CBE.”
