But, Chris doesn’t introduce his products and services up front in the sales process, instead, he asks questions to discover a customer’s needs and then presents ideas on how to best solve those needs.

Chris said, “If you can act as a consultant and get to the root of what the problem is, and then come back with a tailored solution, that’s the only way to build trust and loyalty over time. Customers are looking to buy solutions to problems, not individual products. If you don’t develop that trust, you’ll never get in a position to truly help.”

He’s excited to be a part of a company that is energetic, creative and motivated, constantly trying new approaches and technology. He also predicts a bright future for the industry as a whole. “There will be more integrations across platforms, as a company like mine can handle lead generation, mailing programs, text programs, tracking, ROI and payments,” he said. “We handle the logistics so our customers don’t have to find 10 different companies and string projects together. That is, I believe, the future of print — one element of larger, more effective campaigns.”

It’s an honor to have a Regency associate included in Print Solutions featured stars. Matt Sanderson, Executive Vice President, PSDA, said, “Each year, PSDA’s research on our industry’s leaders provides a window to the future. Regency’s presence as one of the fastest growing distributors is a testament to the strength of their value proposition as well as to the power of the reseller model which is highly valued in today’s marketing suite.”

Grand Winner of the Peak Award

Peak Award Sell SheetRegency was the Grand Award Winner in the Marketing Solution: Integrated Marketing Campaign – Print category for its entry “Paragon Bank Multi-Touch Campaign.”

Paragon Commercial Bank hired Regency to help it promote its residential mortgage program. Paragon prided itself on the personal relationships it developed through its unique private bank offerings but was frustrated that many prospects and clients were not fully aware of the extent of its offerings. Marketing and customer support resources were limited, so there was great demand in prequalifying clients based on services that were relevant and desired. Other broad marketing efforts had proved expensive and ineffective in past campaigns so a new multichannel, multitouch approach was welcomed.

The recommended solution was a four-part variable-data direct mail campaign combined with a personalized web page (pURL) and white paper. The pURL presented a brief survey to qualify the respondent’s desire for financing a new home or refinancing and offered an informative white paper.

The judges liked the chronology of the campaign and that it used content marketing. The judges thought it was a well-planned multi-touch campaign and coordinated effort. Additionally, they complimented the level of variable printing and creativity of the envelope.

#1 Fastest-Growing PSDA Print Distributor in the Nation!

Regency Office Products was named the fastest-growing print distributor in the nation by Print Solutions magazine! Regency doubled its print sales in 2010 and increased by 74% in 2009. Regency’s back-to-back success and expansion across the country is a direct result of their commitment to technological solutions and out-of-the-box innovations.

Regency is a diversified business solutions company, who initially sold office supplies. Over time, they expanded their services and products to include printing, promotional products, personalized apparel, paper shredding, certified e-waste management, toner replenishment and much more. But, what makes this company unique is their use of cutting-edge technology. For example, Regency offers print-on-demand websites that allow their clients to personalize items, such as business cards and corporate apparel, by simply logging into a secured website and entering text. Clients can view instant online proofs and place print orders. The web-based system reduces overhead, is accessible from any location, and maintains a consistent brand appearance. And, it’s changing the way companies do business!

Regency also offers e-store websites that allow clients sell their own personalized products and apparel online. One client, a private school, uses the e-store to offer branded apparel, gifts and supplies to students, parents and even grandparents. The shipping, credit card processing and storage are handled by Regency, easing the school’s busy schedule and allowing them to focus on what they do best–helping students.

Regency is committed to staying on top of the newest services and technology, ensuring their continued growth, as well as their clients.

2nd Fastest Growing Print Distributor in the Nation

While other companies cut back on staff in 2009, Regency Office Products did not lay off any employees. “We had a temporary freeze on hiring sales people, but that has been lifted,” Director of Value-Added Services Pete Redondo says. Instead, the distributorship added more infrastructure to its Value-Added Services department, began exploring back office and operational software to create efficiencies, and focused on training. “We had a heavy focus on training and development for our existing sales force so we would be poised for a big 2010,” Redondo says.
