We Dig Deeper

Let's say you ask a typical supplier if they offer order approvals...most would just say "Yes". We would instead ask, "Why?" which would lead to your budgetary control concerns. Armed with that knowledge, we would suggest our built in budget tracking and controls, something you didn't even know was available! Taking that extra time to understand your needs makes all the difference!

We are true to our Commitments

We've all experienced "fake" promises and commitments from those charming call centers. Most likely, we've all been burned by one of them as well. If you think about it, how can a person in an overseas or out of state call center really be in a position to promise anything? Bottom-line, they know it will be your only conversation with them, creating no need for them to really get the right answer. At Harris, you always talk to a live person in our office. They'll take the time to get the right answer for you and will base our commitment on that information. We are here to make you look good and will always do everything to ensure that happens.

We're accessible nearly 24/7

Ok, so maybe not at the wedding...but we do pride ourselves at only being a phone call away. You'll have your salesperson's cell and email, and will be amazed at the hours we'll respond back to you. We focus on the quality of our response in three ways: How quickly you can make contact with us, how soon we respond, and the quality and follow through of our response.

We can provide you with this information whenever you need it. No need to ask twice, or three times or four. No need to wait weeks and weeks. It's your information and we are happy to provide it anytime!

Our Competency

We know that our competency lies in the knowledge and skills we have in our product and services. We also know that you have experienced what our competitors have to offer and we have done our homework in that area as well. We are often approached by some of the brightest individuals from our competitors (yes Staples and Office Depot), who are seeking a much more customer focused company. Their experiences at the "big box" stores combined with our over 60 years as an independent, allow us to best understand what all types of customers are looking for, and to create programs and solutions like no other in the industry, based on our second-to-none knowledge and skills.
