Loffler Companies has recognized the top tier technology and support of Toshiba. This summer, a record-breaking 650 professionals attended Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc.'s (TABS) 2011 National Dealer Meeting and End-User Conference themed "Fast Forward" at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. During the conference, Toshiba unveiled twenty new solutions-ready color and monochrome products with groundbreaking security and green features, as well as several new cloud printing, mobility and service solutions. Attendees also had the opportunity to engage in informative breakout sessions with practical information targeted specifically to either dealers or end-users, covering managed document services (MDS), mobility, cloud computing and security.
Chief Executive Officer Masahiro "Matt" Yamada opened the general session with an overall business update. He noted that profits have returned to pre-recession levels. In addition, Toshiba's MDS business has experienced 78 percent year-over-year growth, accounting for approximately twelve percent of the company's total revenue.
"We are continuing to invest heavily in our MDS programs, cloud printing and security software and products, with a services-led strategy focused on selling business outcomes, capturing pages and emphasizing color sales," said Mark Mathews, president and COO, TABS, who followed Mr. Yamada's presentation. "The first quarter of fiscal year 2011 has delivered 15 percent year-over-year unit growth and 6.9 percent year-over-year revenue growth. In fact, March was our best sales month in over four years. With the new products, solutions and service offerings we have launching this year, I'm confident our dealers will continue to succeed and prosper."
The Toshiba Division of Loffler Companies will operate as a standalone business unit and will be headquartered in Bloomington, MN. It will be led by veteran Loffler sales manager, David Viljaste.
