|Clary Business Machines was established
in San Diego in 1954 to market and service Clary adding
machines and cash registers. The firm was first incorporated
in 1974 and the management has changed once since
then. Despite an ever-changing product mix, the company
has maintained many old, well-established sales and
service relationships with a large quantity of small
to large commercial firms as well as government and
public institutions. Today Clary's customer list read
like "Who's who" in US commerce.
In 2001, the company ventured into Internet Marketing.
Multiple websites were developed for various product
lines with an emphasis on simplicity, user friendliness
and customer education. This strategy helped build
very strong relationships with the manufacturers
/ suppliers and gain customer confidence. The company
now owns 12 websites and generates a little over
½ its revenue through Internet sales nationwide.
Our product specialists supplement the Internet
content by educating our customers over the phone.
Building lifetime relationships with our customers
is our top priority.
Today, Clary has become a digital office products
specialist. It offers digital printers & copiers,
facsimile systems, paper shredders & cutters,
scanners and comprehensive solutions for meetings
and presentations (electronic whiteboards, projectors,
interactive displays, room schedulers etc.). Product
lines carried include Panasonic, Polyvision, Hitachi,
3M, Numonics, Teamboard, Plus, Quartet, Destroyit,
Dahle, GBC, HSM and Intimus. Clary's main strength
in the local San Diego market has been the outstanding
reputation of its Services department. Its main
strength in Internet sales has been its focus on
top quality brands and well qualified product specialists
that recommend customized solutions to our customers
and educate them on end-to-end solutions.
The company has adapted the strategy to become
a "one stop shop for all office electronics
needs" and is adding new lines to its product
portfolio such as telephony and video conferencing
systems. The goal is to provide managed service
solutions to its customers for all their office
equipment needs with the exception of computers
/ IT systems.
