Once again, Advance was among the nation’s top office technology dealerships chosen as a 2020 Elite Dealer by ENX Magazine!
“Many of the honorees share a corporate culture that embraces a family atmosphere and stresses serving both clients and employees.

I think this year’s list exemplifies that spirit,” says Susan Neimes, managing editor of ENX Magazine and ENX The Week in Imaging.
Toluca Lake, CA (Nov. 1, 2020)— ENX Magazine announced that Advance Business Systems was among the nation’s top office technology dealerships chosen this year as a 2020 Elite Dealer. Advance has been selected as a recipient of this prestigious award for many years in a row.
Each year, ENX Magazine judges Elite Dealer applicants on a number of criteria, from technical service excellence to marketing proficiency, growth initiatives, technology leadership, industry accolades and philanthropy. Those dealers chosen are profiled in the December issue of ENX Magazine.
“In a year of substantial challenges brought on by the pandemic, we have come to measure an Elite Dealer by its ability to pivot to the changing needs of its customer base,” said Susan Neimes, managing editor of ENX Magazine and ENX The Week In Imaging. “Many of the honorees share a corporate culture that embraces a family atmosphere and stresses serving both clients and employees. Products and technology will always drive business, but customers respond favorably to a vendor that can serve their every need. I think this year’s list exemplifies that spirit.”
