Virginia Business Systems (VBS) of Virginia has been named one of the country’s Elite Dealers by ENX Magazine. The award is presented annually by the publication to the top office equipment dealers in the U.S. According to the publisher, Susan Neimes, the prestigious 2016 Elite Dealer awards were selected from a record number of entries. “It takes something special to stand out as an Elite independent dealer in 2013”, Neimes said. “Among Elite Dealers, success is not about surviving, it’s about thriving – and balancing growth, innovative marketing and sales programs with a commitment to their employees and their community.”
Virginia Business Systems has been named an Elite Dealer for the last 17 years. Proud of their achievement, Jim Dotter, President of Virginia Business Systems said, “Our companies have continually been at the forefront of developing cost effective, efficient, quality solutions for our client’s document management needs. It’s not just about equipment and software; it is about knowledge, service and fast forward solutions.” Mr. Dotter continued, “This award could only have been possible through the commitment of our team. Our employees continually strive to deliver the best in quality, technical support and dedication to our clients.”
This year’s Elite Dealer honorees encompass dealerships with revenues of less than $5 million a year to those with revenues of more than $50 million. Elite Dealers are the entrepreneurs, innovators, top sellers, and celebrated members of the communities in which they work and provide office technology, software, and services to businesses and organizations of all sizes. Top dealers also do a terrific job of donating time and money to their local and national charitable organizations and causes, have a nurturing work culture, treat their employees well, and offer innovative marketing programs.
