Looking for a copier dealer?

There are lots of people that are simply looking for a “copier dealer”. On the surface, that seems like a logical thing to search for. What you may or may not already know is not all copier dealers are created equally. You have copier dealers that are direct from manufacture, like IKON/ Ricoh, Xerox, Lexmark and just about any other copier manufacturer. Next you have independent dealers, they come in all shapes and sizes, with some as small as a single sales rep and service tech. So, how do you choose what type of dealer to go with?
