DEA Meeting; Preferred Business Solutions

Ron Schulz called his office administrator to ask about their experience with Preferred Business Solutions.  The response he got was “What did you do?”  She said, Preferred Business Solutions is amazing!  They are the best; if I need anything, there are there!

Cynthia Oliver grew up in West Texas and moved to a suburb of Fort Worth in High School.  Her High School colors were orange and black and their mascot was the Fighting Porcupines!  Cynthia was her school’s mascot her senior year!  The latest addition to her family is Brew, a mini Australian Shepherd!

Cynthia has been with Preferred Business Solutions for 8 happy years.  She encourages all feedback, so they can improve.

What makes us different?  Preferred is in an elite group of Office Product Dealers – top 28 in the Nation.  They are the largest independent dealer in North Texas.  They are a stocking dealer with $4.8 billion in inventory.  They are local but with national capabilities.  They have over 40,000 products from toner to IT accessories, filing cabinets to filing systems, legal products, as well as special orders for products they don’t normally stock.  They also stock break room supplies:  coffee, water, water bottles (no one wants to haul water anymore), and complementary products.

All orders can be placed online, by email, phone call or fax.  Next-day delivery, nationwide; no charge, no minimum!  Their Customer Service Team is local and handles product recommendations, returns, urgent orders, and back order notifications.  Every call is answered!  The deliveries are made by their uniformed employees; they know client preferences, product placement, and building security.

Cynthia is the Account Manager: you tell me and it gets done!  She is responsible for the account, order delivery, billing processes, inventory management.  She can bring in Manufacturer Reps for product demos.  My focus:  how can I support your company?

Online tools include ordering, order history, strategic favorites list, approvals, and mobility app.  Their market-based pricing typically saves customers about 10%.  Cynthia has analysis tools which can help her clients manage their budget and spend, including by branch or by department.  Preferred Business Solutions has a Reward Points loyalty program for ordering online.  With referrals, the referring company gets matching reward points forever!

Cynthia’s target market is companies with 20-200 employees.  She often works with the Vendor Relationship Manager, Procurement, Executive Assistant, Office Manager, or Legal Administrator.  If the company has their corporate headquarters in Texas, that is great!  Great “A” leads for her are businesses like this outside the DEA.  Great “B” leads are all DEA members.  Great “C” leads are continuing business of all kinds!

Please join us for the Preferred Business Solutions Book Signing at Cynthia’s home at 123 North Clinton, Dallas, TX 75208 on Thursday, January 12th from 4:30-6:30pm.  There will be a drawing.
