Every business wants to improve efficiencies in their workflow, which is where your printing technology products come in. Every device must operate as designed to maintain high levels of productivity.

Can you support customers both large and small on a worldwide basis? Flash Global is the partner you need to handle technical services and spare parts logistics to keep customers operating at peak efficiency, so you’re free to focus on design, innovation and sales.

Best of all, service level agreements (SLAs) with your customers drive every action Flash takes on your behalf. Your key performance indicators are ours.

Flash Global supports printing technology hardware OEMs that collectively have annual revenues totaling $4 billion. This includes companies that manufacture copiers, printers, scanners, and other technologies. We assist them with repairs, logistics, storage, and international trade compliance functions.

The Challenges of Global Product Support

We’re living in the digital age, and printers and copiers are the bridge between digital data and end users who may be in the next office or on another continent. Providing technicians and spare parts for network and mobile printing devices to anywhere in the world is a challenge for OEMs because this entails coordinating across call centers, field service technicians, and spare parts inventory in multiple countries — all while delivering rapid response times and accurate technical support. This is exactly what is needed to rectify issues and keep your customers satisfied.

Downtime is costly, both to your customers and to your company’s brand. Your customers are determined to maximize productivity, so any interruption in their workflow can halt a day’s work. Flash Global can dispatch technicians to provide equipment service and install replacement parts within timelines that meet your warranty and SLA obligations, strengthening a bond of trust with your customers.

The success of our service logistics and technical services offerings relies on inventory integrity. Flash Global has developed technology, processes and robust reporting capabilities that provide inventory visibility and accuracy throughout your after-sales supply chain.

We consistently deliver spare parts on time within a 2-hour, 4-hour or next business day window. Our expansive global footprint and technical services (screen, test and repair) enables us to keep defective products in-country or in-region and close to your end customers whenever possible. This reduces the turnaround time for returned parts identified as no-trouble-found (NTF) or no-fault-found (NFF).

Thinking about entering a new international market? Does your company have the trade compliance expertise to comply with complex, ever-changing requirements and regulations? What about the challenge containing costs associated with reclaiming and recycling of used parts and products? Flash Global can help.
