Like many companies, this retailer had a limited internal IT department as they had outsourced many IT functions abroad. The retailer not only needed new printer hardware, but also needed a Solution Provider to manage and implement the programming and installation of new Lexmark printers.
Data Sales was able to provide the Lexmark printers at the best possible price and also provide overall project management of the project which included pre installation programming so once the printer arrived onsite it was “plug and run” ready for the DSC technician to install. Data Sales managed the administration logistics and coordination of scheduling installations; tracking printers and provided detailed reporting to the retailer so the new printer S/N’s could be added to the customer’s existing maintenance contract.
RESULT: The retailer received long overdue new Lexmark printers and kept the overall project costs down and saved time by outsourcing the configuration, delivery and installation to Data Sales.

Data Sales Co. Opens New Office in Canada
Data Sales Co., a full-service lessor with a history in information technology hardware that spans nearly four decades, announced the opening of its Canadian subsidiary, headquartered in Toronto.
TORONTO (Ont.) & BURNSVILLE (Minn.) September 28, 2011 Data Sales Co., a full-service lessor with a history in information technology hardware that spans nearly four decades, announced the opening of its Canadian subsidiary, headquartered in Toronto. With offices in Minnesota, Texas and Arizona, the opening of Data Sales Co. of Canada in Toronto expands the firm’s North American market presence. Moreover, it enables Data Sales Co. to meet the needs of small, fast growing companies throughout Canada by offering them custom leases allowing them to retain their equity.
“We are thrilled to be expanding into Canada”, said Bob Breckner, Vice President of Leasing for Data Sales Co. “The opening of offices in Canada will allow us to better serve our current customer base and provide a large growth opportunity in a market that we feel is poised to expand rapidly”.
Data Sales Co. provides the option to lease IT and networking equipment, avoiding the need for a lot of upfront capital and helping to align cash flow with revenue growth. Its mantra is that this enables the owners of small firms to keep their equity and avoid selling stakes in the company until the firm is larger and can attract a higher valuation. Saving a dollar of equity now could be worth a lot more later on. An added benefit of leasing is that the process is relatively quick, so equipment can be in place rapidly and can scale quickly as the business grows.
