EVERY HISTORY HAS IT'S OWN BEGINNING
Imagine Technology Group opened its doors in Phoenix, Arizona in 2011. Each of the executive board members for Imagine Technology Group was a member of the highly successful Copier Brothers, which was in business from 1987 – 2002. Copier Brothers was an award-winning Toshiba Dealership which consistently showed strong growth and was recognized numerous times by Toshiba for Sales, Service and Support, culminating with the coveted “Toshiba Dealer of the Year” award in 2001. Imagine Technology Group’s Executive team of Bob and Mary Ellen Franz, and Chad Schwartz have worked together for more than 15 years.
The copier industry had moved from simply being a print output device to an integral piece of the IT infrastructure in most corporate environments. Copiers had become the onboarding device to the electronic data which companies relied on to efficiently and effectively run their business. Companies were pushing to decrease the amount of paper handled in their office and were creating initiatives to improve workflow. ITG positioned itself as a leading provider of cutting edge office technology. This technology shift allowed ITG to expand its offerings to include VoIP Phones, data management, managed IT services, managed print services, MFP network solutions, and workflow solutions. ITG was able to expand its offerings while keeping with local ownership to maintain its commitment to service and support.
Due to expansive growth, ITG moved into a new 20,000 sq. ft. facility and continued to expand its Information Technology offerings. We saw strong growth in all aspects of our business and welcomed additional previous Copier Brothers employees into our family. At one point, more than 50% of ITG’s employees had previously worked together. This created an environment of trust and familiarity which allowed for accelerated growth all while continuing to provide superior customer service.
To establish itself as a technology leader, ITG invested in improving its infrastructure by upgrading its ERP system to Forza, a SAP Business One solution. This technology improvement will provide ITG with critical business tools to allow us to make decisions armed with smarter IT capabilities. We also filled a critical position in our management team with the addition of Stephen Callahan, VP Information Technologies. Stephen was previously with Apollo Group where he held the roles or Director of Software Engineering and Chief of Staff.
