Impact Makes an Impact!

I had the pleasure of attending Impact Networking Fall Technology Showcase in Chicago last month. What a wonderful event this mega-dealer puts on for their customers and prospects who attend the show each year.

I was told that Impact started in a garage back in 1999 and in less than 2 years moved to a 6,000-square foot location in downtown Chicago. Flash forward to today, they are now one of the top mega-dealers with several locations in the United States and revenues over $100M.
Talk about business transformation! Here’s what Cory Carnes, Illinois General Sales Manager & Partner had to say: “While Impact’s business in the office equipment industry is thriving, we will continue to heavily invest in our internal resources to grow our market share in Managed Services. Evolutions in technology demand robotic process automation and cybersecurity and as a result, we project aggressive growth in areas of Managed IT, Design and Marketing and Business Process Automation.

Check out their website: http://www.impactnetworking.com/ and the photo taken during my evening walk after the event.

At the Fall Technology Showcase, the hospitality was spot on. I was informed that it was a good thing that I came early because they were expecting over 600 people in the two days of the Chicago location show. The energy and professionalism showed throughout the day. Young talent and old school professionals coming together for a common theme to show customer appreciation, support and thankfulness. All attendees were given a turkey when they left! Since I was flying back to Florida the next day, I asked that my turkey be donated to the homeless.
Vendors were on site to show their support and to highlight some of the new features related to platforms and applications on the MFP and the benefits associated with them. Scanning was top of mind with customers asking about more sophisticated scanning workflow options and security associated with the MFP. There was excitement around inkjet and production. Specialists were there to support the sales reps and customers with great dialogues around workflow, business process optimization and IT processes.
Many of the sales reps and sales managers raved about our BLIQ tool that they use for business on a regular basis and they were happy to introduce me as a business partner. I was more than thrilled to be at the event this year and I’m looking forward to continued collaborations with the team at Impact Networking.
As mentioned in a recent Chicago Times article about another Impact meeting, “fun events fuel corporate and personal growth.” This is what Impact Networking culture is all about and it showed at their Fall Technology Showcase 2017.

What are you doing to show your impact in today’s market?
